What do you think and what do you think its REALLY worth? '96 900SS CR w/mods
2 Attachment(s)
Been looking for 999's, but came across this and I'm interested. Yeah I know its down on power vs a 999, but this thing is cool and has soul. Going to call on it. No, its not original, but it appears to be very clean, well maintained and tasteful mods. Within last 100 mi's new belts, valve adjustment and fluids change. 13.6k miles & asking $5.5k.......

**I'm pretty handy with mechanics/tools, but sometimes I'll let a professional work on my bikes if time is not on my side. What should I expect to spend at a Duc dealer or private shop to do the typical belts and 2v valve adjustment for this bike?**

Yes, I'll ask the right questions and look for the obvious areas of concern/problems regarding this model of bike. What do you think?

Ducati 1098 forks with radial Brembo brakes
MotoCorse triple clamps
EBC rotors
Woodcraft clip-ons
Rizoma grips
Remote Brembo reservoir brake and clutch
New Dunlop Sportmax Q3 tires
Sharkskinz bodywork with custom paint
D&D exhaust cans
2005 M900 longer rear shock
Powder coated frame, swingarm and wheels
Ceramic coated headers

Let me know your thoughts/advice on anything specific outside the "normal" know problematic area questions I should ask the owner........thanks in advance. After looking at it I'll report back.

That’s a very nice SS. I don’t know what the Ducati market is like in your area, but I’m sure someone would be asking around 5k if it were here in Michigan, though what they’d get is the question. It’s not a strong market for old Ducs here. As reference, someone is selling a SS upgraded to an 1100 for 5k.

I think on old SS like that just make sure that the frame isn't getting any cracks up by the steering head. Otherwise they are simple machines...

Thanks for the feedback. Seems simple enough. I'm just trying to gauge what people think of the bike and is it something that is worth north of $5k, etc. The market in my area is weak for Ducs. This isn't my first Duc. They seem hard to sell unless they're being given away. I'm on the fence about it. Will go look at it soon.

Interesting upgrade to the front end, wondering if it was done for a reason (crash?) but it's a good looking bike and the half-faired versions of that aged model have always been attractive to me. You wouldn't find one as decent as that for that money here in Australia...actually I'm gunna go look through bikesales right now...

I paid $3300 for mine 2 years ago. It has a more miles, suspension upgrades and is in good shape.

So here on Central Mid - Atlantic I think a fair top of market $$$ would be $4500.

I would try to get it for $4000.

They are fun bikes.

Good luck.

I may be a supersport fanboy but I think the price is fair if the mods done are what you want and the service history is in order. The frame and wheels have been powder coated and the bodywork looks to have a fresh nice paint job. I see details that it is a CR but if that does not bother you then who cares. From the 2 pictures posted it looks to be a frame off clean up. That is far better off starting point if it was done right than buying a "cheaper" bike, this owner may have done most of the hard work for you so you get the better bike for much less in the end.

Get service history and details on any mods/work done. A full tune is about 5-6 hours on a 900ss labor wise so look at local labor rates to do the math. Belts are available from Ducati for about $140 or aftermarket for about $80 a pair. There is no added labor to put belts on when you do a service anyway. Add in oil and filter,gaskets,plugs and clutch /brake fluid. In other words about $100 additional parts should cover you if using synthetic oil.

Look to see if the rear wheel is a 5.5", common upgrade and I would be surprised if it is not given the forks installed. He obviously cared enough to do some nice mods and it does not look like it was left outside under a tarp much. Ask if the frame was welded at the steering head, this is a good possibility why it had the frame painted/coated, That should be a plus. Check for chrome studs on the motor and deduct some value if they are still chrome. It does not mean you will have a issue with them but you may.

If the frame has been properly repaired, studs changed and a non-Ducati electronica rectifier on there I should think the bike should have most of the major issues covered already.

That looks like it is well worth the asking price, some very tasteful and pricey upgrades, go get it before somebody else recognise it for what it is and what it's worth.

Where are the front indicators? In the mirrors?

They look like the crappy Kawasaki copies from various online sources.
If so, there is a strip of LEDs in the mirror, which from my experience was the best part.
