2nd, 3rd & 4th this one - FCRs are the dogs for this bike!!! You will not believe the transformation until your try them.
No worries with no choke either, they have an accelerator pump so a few twists to get it going & then you only need to wind up the idle speed (they come with a flexi adjuster) and youre good to go even, on -2C mornings in Norway!!!
But yeah they cost a lot...

I installed FCRs this year and am now thinking about going back to stock 15-37 gearing. It runs so smooth (for an old Duc) at 2500 now despite a light flywheel, and it has plenty of pull to get the front wheel airborne, so I feel like I don't need the shorter gearing any more

I found smoothness was really helped by fitting up-rated coils as they give more even firing. You can get a CaliforniaCycleWorks kit from ExactStart in the UK.
If you join the Ducatiukforum and subscribe, ExactStart will give you a good discount

Ps I would also highly recommend ordering a starting circuit cable kit from him. It will transform the way your SS cranks and starts Again, the discount applies.

ExactUK HiCap Starter Cables for Ducati Motorcycles - Available Kits

Dyna coils kit for Ducati Monster and SS.
I was thinking about mounting some Nology PFC-coils when I'm switching the Kokusan for an Ignitech ignition.
These coils apparently are the best in combination with the ignitech...


And about the starter cable kit: I've made my own. Just bought some good quality cable at the local auto parts store and a college of mine attached Klauke lugs on them and shielded every connection with glue-lined shrink tubes.
Total costs: €17
They make a huge difference in the way the bike cranks and starts! Very happy with them.

Are you guys working together to convince me?

Refurbished for $1150.00 Pretty sure that's close enough to new price I would be buying new.

If I found a set under $800 I would consider them, close to $500 and I would find the money and take the blame later.
Maybe I need to check and see if prices have gone up again. Just a clarification about 5 years ago a brand new set was $900 so if you bought a new set back then it is worth pretty much what you paid for them used.

Imagine what these legendary carbs will be worth if they stop selling them?
