Looks great in black and red Jeff! I would think yours would be one of a kind as Ducati didn't offer these 2 colors together for either the 999/749.
So your dyno results are first the 749 stock and then w/ the performance upgrades? Pretty impressive numbers, it must run very well.
We've discussed the ZARD exhaust previuosly. It looks like you use the Ducati OEM tail light wire encased in metal conduit correct? I guess ZARD has you cut off the attachment ears that appear on the conduit? or does ZARD give you a new piece to run the wire as LeoVince does? It just seems there is a better way to smooth the underside of the muffler cannister (i.e Termignoni) instead of having that conduit hanging down? However the ZARD is a cool and interesting exhaust. It seems to runabout 45mm from the horizontal manifold (does ZARD give you new manifolds?), then it fattens up as it goes up under the swingarm, then picks up the vertical cylinder, then splits off into inlet pipes. Looks to be at least 60mm as it goes up past the swinger. Very interesting! Looking at the dates on the dyno graph, it appears that they put your motor together in 3 days??? That looks like one great streetable motor in that bike. Very nice work Jeff!
