So dare we ask the financial outlay so far?

This is one sick build!

I bet when it is all finished, it's so nice that you'll put it away in your living room and start over with some other bike/project "to ride"..
ps. I remember seeing that same carbon-996 somewhere too.

By the way the carbon vent covers were super easy to find... Lockhart Phillips has a bunch of well-priced carbon parts for the 999.

Thanks

I was looking for original DP parts only. Other manufacturers' parts are easy to find indeed.

Thanks, but I need to ride this one or swap it for an R

I've been dreaming of starting an RS replica build but haven't exactly got the money yet...

The story continues...

I've always loved the carbon fairings on a 999R. They are so nicely painted with the exposed carbon. I've been drooling over a set for quite some time now and a couple of weeks ago finally located a set of '04 749R carbon fairings. According to the seller there were "no scratches" and everything was like new. The deal also included a tank and Monoposto tail kit.

When I finally got the parts the carbon fairings weren't exatcly what they were supposed to be... Small scratches everywhere and paint missing in a couple of spots. The sound dampening materials on the insides were completely ruined - they well off in pieces and were partially moldy. The tank has minor surface rust on the inside wel seam but at least the the tail is perfect.

I'm still trying to get a partial refund from Paypal, but in either case I need to have the fairings fixed. Most likely I'll have them repainted with 999S texts, imitating the R style. I would have wanted a newer model front fairing but I'll probably get used to the old one. Need to paint the vent meshes black, don't like the silver ones.



Photo taken far enough to hide the scratches

There's a DP windshield (without parking light) coming from Sweden since the newer model has different bolt spacing so the old DP windshield won't fit.

How about a mystery photo? Anyone recognize this piece of art?

I can't say other than titanium , i would be very interested in seeing your dyno tune chart once you decide on a exhaust . Ive held back on changing from the kit . i ride on the street and don't want to compromise any midrange power . When the bike was tuned last spring Lofgren ran the Leo Vince TI. slip on power was very steady no bumps . i was very happy to see his results being i wanted to not look at the butt ugly Termi muffler it looks like a guppy .

if 666,was 999 ,Nero 06 999s

I don't think I'll have the bike dynoed. I don't do track days and have no interested in crazy power. As long as the bike runs fine it's good enough for me. I didn't come across any issues last summer with the 57mm Termi + ECU (for a slip-on) + Pipercross filters + large air runners. It pulls good and doesn't act funny.

In my books Termignoni is the only exhaust that looks nice with the street setup (OEM tail, tail light and license plate bracket). All other silencers aren't designed with a tail light in mind. Plus it looks pretty balanced compared to the front part of the bike.

I bought a LeoVince slip-on about a year ago but ended up selling it since I did not like the look of the tail light bracket setup.



I really like the Termi but recently got the exhaust I've been looking for. Won't be installing it until next winter though along with some other bits.
