How did it go? How long did you have to hold the throttle?

I finally installed an Ohlins rear shock on my ss900ie, cleaned it, cherished it and fell asleep on the work chair. Now it is too damn chilly to ride...

Changed the LED tail light (cluster of LEDs) to a different design LED (surface mount). Much improved - the LED cluster was very directional, with not a lot of difference between the tail light on, and then the brake light on as well. The surface mount design has a much better 360 degree light spread, which then utilises the tail light reflector - which the LED cluster didn't - and makes a HUGE difference to the brake light output.
I'll post the pics up in another thread...

Starting it wasn't too bad, three/four wraps of the throttle, idle turned up. Took two tries but all-in-all, not bad. Now, the ride to work was a bit more interesting (other post).

I asked the same question to myself! Mid 30's. I worked nearly 70 hours last week... I was so exhausted.

Ever since I stumbled across pics of it I've really liked the look of the enclosed belly pan that Alex Ortner designed for his 908SSP project bike. Pics 1 and 2.
I particularly like the way he designed his belly pan to closely follow the lower contours of both the stator cover and clutch cover.

Airtech offers an oil containment type race belly pan for the 900SS that kinda reminded me of Alex's design so I ordered one. I went with the fiberglass type but they're also available in carbon fiber. Build time was 4 weeks,it arrived today. Pics 3-6.

I dunno, but I think that might look bloody awesome when it is painted up and fitted. Keep us updated.

I started it to make sure the MotoBatt battery was holding a charge. (It was)

Then I ordered a few parts for it from Ducati of Omaha and a key blank from eBay.
