My never ending project Ducati 996

Here is my current project. When i bought this bike 2 years ago it looked like this

previous winter i started work on fairings and lowering bike weight.





I wasn't satisfied with look so i started sending it down (bike was repainted in the past)

Plans for this winter: I'm already late but better late than never

check valves clearances
Change oem air runners for bigger
Repair carbon fibers on swingarm and rear carbon hugger
maybe 1098/1198 engine mod if i will have enough money before summer but i doubt

I will show you proper way to repair carbon fiber parts so that you can repair yours carbon parts.
