I made the decision last summer to build a dedicated track bike after spending a weekend on Barber with the 999s not pushing it for fear of destroying her. Since Im in the business of buying Ducati's, not selling them, I still have my first, a 1995 Supersport SS/CR.
She was beautiful, then I bought a 916 and she went unridden, then I bought the 999s and she was all but forgotten...
The first few mods were a corbin seat and full fairings the same week I got her home:
I started stockpiling parts last year to turn the bike into a full time track bike.
The list of parts I have so far include:
916 front end and wheel
Machined upper triple clamp
39mm FCR's w/pod filters
5.5" rear wheel
did 520 chain
D&D equal length headers w/Danmoto carbon cans
14 front and 39 rear sprocket
Underslung rear caliper
120/70 front and 180/55 rear Power One tires
2 more sets of full fairings
999R Front master cylinder
916 clutch master cylinder
Im still waiting on a few of the parts to show up, but Im starting to put parts on as I get them.
Test Fitting the rear wheel. The exhaust cans are Danmoto and the quality is great so far, and for only $180 for the pair!
The dash is only a template now, with some luck I will be able to score some old used sheet metal from an apache helicopter fuselage to finish it!!
