00' 748 or 01' 748
Ok so hello everyone I just joined, I live in Orlando FL and I have my mind set between a 2001 748 with 20k miles for $4000 grand or a 2000 748 with 8k miles for $4700. I know the 01 is the transition year to a newer slightly better 748 with the better IMO color silver frame and wheels and better wiring and aluminum plug that backs out replaced but can that plug just be upgraded on the 00 model ? And electrical wiring replaced with a newer bikes wiring or upgraded ? I would like any other differences details and they are both prone to rocker flacking just the same right? In you guys' expert opinions tell me what you think and chime in.. It's been 10 years since I've been on 2 wheels and it's time for me to come back and my last bike was a 01 996 and I loved everything about it and in my eyes they are the best bodystyle ever to be on 2 wheels.. Thanks and I am happy to be a member.. Well both are within drivng distance in my state. Neither has service records ( I know I know) but both claim to be well kept, the 01 is at a non Ducati dealer and the 00 is a private seller whose mechanic neighbor has worked on it.. And I am very mechanically inclined I will be doing my own work / maintenance so no worries there. Eventually in a few years I plan to drop in a 1198 or possibly other engine in it.. You should see my car, I put a 93 Rx7 13B-REW Rotary Engine in my 89 Mitsubishi Starion with Haltech ECU I tune myself and I have also rebuilt the engine, ported and polished it.. Rotaries and L-Twins for me..
