Howdo!!
Cheers Muschi, still trying to re-calibrate my brain and riding style. 1st 2nd front comes up hard and in 3rd the front is skiping across the tarmac and its good for 160mph+..........Barking!!
The power is all usable from 1500revs.......all the low down power of a 1100 2valver but the power just keeps coming, you can just ride the torque or nail it upto 10000.
The radial calipers are a big improvement, using the standard 4pad brembo pads at the moment which I am changing this week for SBS dual cabon compound.......so should be outstanding.
The adjustable yokes allow you to trail the front brake without the bike wanting to sit up. Hard on the brakes the bike is more composed. I would like to see it back to back against another SS just to see how it fairs.
Overall very happy with the out come

Cheers Pablo

Ha ha that's ace! I've recently fantasized about getting a run down series 2 or 3 900SL and restomodding it into a "ultraleggera" like you've done but that ST3 engine really is a masterstroke!

awsome! looks good. you've hidden the radiator well. Its not a standard ST3 radiator is it?
I always thought about converting 3 valve heads for the monster with no liquid cooling...
the ST3 I have shits on the monster and the 748 for grunt.
I'd guess you'd embarrass a lot of 'bigger' bikes with that...
