There wasn't any work to do on the inside of the fairing, the lip was pretty straight and level from the factory. All I had to do was run a bead of glue and drop the cover into place.

Haven't been out at night with it yet, weather around here continues to be standard fare for an Oregon spring. Things should be nicer tomorrow - I'll try for some better photos and a night ride.
Should do an install thread on it. When looking at it versus the sock light, I was trying to wrap my head on how to mount it to the plastic mounting bracket and keep it clean looking. Would like to see what you did.

Both. I think you should paint it, with white number plates, but leaving subtle "flashes" of carbon fiber exposed (edges or a thin pinstripe or even a center stripe, something along those lines), then clearcoat the whole thing!

Example of what I am thinking of:

Great Idea

Anyway, it should make my upcoming valve adjustment easier and help with lubing chains, etc... It uses the through hole in the back of the cases to fix to the bike to the stand with a 3/8" pin so the bike is super secure and stable.

That's was yesterday's little project.

Thanx,

That's been the Ducati Performance look on their body work for a very long time. Classic and beautifully Italian.

1994 900 SS/CR
2017 939 Supersport S
It's Italian. If I can get it to start, it'll win.

Does buying tools count? I just ordered a Carbtune to check the sync on my carbs. I wanted to hold out for one of these but who knows when they will be ready!

Center stand price...

Well they would change very slightly to make them easier to fabricate and be made about 1/2" taller (right now the rear wheel is only about 1/4" off the floor). That said, I haven't totally worked up a price (because I just made this one for myself) but off the top of my head I could likely do them between $75 and $100 and maybe even knock that down a bit if I MIG weld them instead of TIG (I TIG a lot of my own stuff just to keep in practice). I really don't have a clue what bike stands go for (when I need something I just build it) so I might be way off base.

What would you be thinking as a good price break?

And if there are any rules about posting things like this for sale please let me know. I don't want to step on toes or break some forum rules.

Thanx,
Jaysin

I've been working on my new dashboard.
Just mocking it up using Lexan at the moment,
the final one will be a nice tidy sheet of carbon fiber.
