Long term project

Working on piston to head clearance. Millennium bored cylinders from another engine and aftermarket rods and pistons. It's all got to be checked over.

Some of you may have recalled my nasty tank cap. It had this awful corrosion all over it so I had it in my mind to take it apart and clean it up when I found an NOS cap assembly on Ebay so I snagged it! New parts are so pleasing to install! I also found the helmet lock for my bike! I will need to have it re-worked to match my key but it comes apart really easy. I might even try myself.



I was a little bummed that the new assembly didn't have the elephant on it so I decided to just cannibalize it for parts. The rest of it is a seemingly perfect match for my bike. Here you can see it next to the correct one for a '94. This one came with the helmet lock assembly but it is too faded to use.









I removed the needed sub-assembly off of the correct cap and swapped out my nasty parts! The springs are semi stationary but there is one that you need to be mindful of that pushes the locking tang out but the whole process could be done by a third grader!






Hello Nasty!



Ahh, that's better!

The "Elefant" is the Cagiva symbol. Cagiva owned Ducati for a while.

Not that i know where things are made, but the "Made in Japan" was a bit of a surprise.

Kevin, see on the box where it says ST4 - 900M - SS - 998B/03. All this means this particular cap fits ( and is the correct one for ) model year 2003 ( the 03 at the end ) ST4, 900 Monster, SS, and 998 Bi Posto. That's why there is no elephant on it, because Ducati was long out of Cagiva ownership by 2003.

Here's a complete lock set ( fuel cap, ignition, helmet lock, and 2 keys ) I picked up a while ago. It's in the original Cagiva box, has the elephant on the cap, and is brand new and has never been fitted. It's still wrapped up in the box in my garage waiting for a special project I'm working on, where originality is everything.

107 miles... on the track.

I realize it was yesterday not today, but I was too wiped out after unloading and dinner and hit the sack early last night.

Another fun day at the local track.

Teched, taped and caffeinated, ready for the first session to settle my nerves.

Finally out of the garage

Finished getting everything back together over the weekend.

Installed new Penske shock (last week)
Had forks refreshed with Race Tech springs and heavier oil (last week)
new Regina chain and sprockets
new Venhill braided brake lines
rebuilt brake calipers
new Michelin Pilot Powers
replaced stock front fender and hugger with carbon fiber ones
installed MSR carbon fiber exhaust
replaced windscreen with Zero Gravity double bubble
installed shorty adjustable levers
a few other carbon fiber pieces added.

Still need to bleed the brakes a bit more and tidy up a few other things before taking it out on the road.
