  1. 1098 - To Ohlins or not to Ohlins... that is the question.

    Superbikes
    Curious, why do you think "Data Acquasition" = Traction Control? Data acquasition to me means imput from sensors on the bike to include temp readings from brakes, engine, pressure readings, lap times, etc. I was unaware they were realeasing any sort of traction control. Can you link me to...
  2. How to make the 1188 worth 32.5K and not make desmosedici owners mad

    Superbikes
    Im far from a subject matter expert on this, but I thought I read somewhere Ducati was trying to make thier bikes more affordable, thus the $14,999 for the 1098? (think of the base 999 price).
  3. How to make the 1188 worth 32.5K and not make desmosedici owners mad

    Superbikes
    why do you think the 1198R will be 32k?
  4. How many 06 749s' Imported to the US?

    Superbikes
    at least Two, your's and mine.
  5. Another noob question (thsi time I really hate to ask)

    Superbikes
    When you bring it in for your 600 mile service, just ask your dealer to remove it. Good luck, and nice bike.
  6. Testastretta Head design - Variance

    Superbikes
    The collets in the S are seated, unlike the collets in the base model (Im told this, I dont know personally). The "R" model has a different stroke, etc, like mentioned, thats not what I was talking about. I was told by my local ducati dealer, whome Ive had a long relationship with and know...
  7. Will the new 1098 de-value the 999?

    Superbikes
    Im personally not worried, Im actually looking forward to seeing just how low the 749R's get. I may want to grab one to race next year. :)
  8. Testastretta Head design - Variance

    Superbikes
    I needed two valves adjusted on my 749s, they needed to take the head off to make the adjustment, they told me they only had to do this on the "S" and "R" models. Not sure why the base 749/999 would be different, but apparently they are.
  9. Optimal Front / Rear Tire PSI ?

    Superbikes
    pilot races - 22 rear / 31 front diablo super corsa's - 26 rear / 28 front I keep them there for both track and street per the local Michelin and Pirelli dealers. But this mostly depends on how you ride, and the bike. IMO.
  10. How many of you bought your CURRENT bike withOUT a test ride?

    Superbikes
    Two bikes, both purchased sight unseen from another state about a year apart.
  11. Tape on the headlights

    Superbikes
    I was told by one of the track day techs its to hold the broken glass in place when and if you crash.
  12. Lightened flywheel for 06 749s

    Superbikes
    ubermensch - Curious if you did this and if so, how do you like it? Section8 - Is there a reason you went with machining down the stock one? and why to 2.5lbs? The Nichols I put in my S4R was like 8oz or something silly like that. I just did a track day on my bike, and tho on the street the...
  13. Track tires?

    Superbikes
    Mals900s - Ive always ran the same type of tire for front and rear, so I have no feedback for you. Sorry. I usually replace 2 back tires before the front, but stick with one type (Diablo Corsa's on my S4R for instance). The 749 I may go back to front/rear Pilot Powers once the rear power race...
  14. Track tires?

    Superbikes

  15. Track tires?

  16. Track tires?

    Superbikes
    mals900ss - just noticed your in Australia, maybe your track day rules are different. My last post clearly isnt ment for your local insurance rules, but here in Oregon, track days are covered.
  17. Track tires?

    Superbikes
    mals900ss its my understanding that sanctioned track day events are all insurance friendly, so if you crash while there, your covered. Correct me if Im wrong, but thats what I've been told by friends, and confirmed the other day at the track by track personel.
  18. Track tires?

    Superbikes
    Track day was yesterday, for the first half I used my stock Pilot Powers (4k miles on them) this being my first track day, and in the C-class, I didnt run to hard/fast. At lunch, I had a set of Power Race put on (Medium rear Soft front) and used them for the rest of the day. At my skill level...
  19. Track tires?

    Superbikes
    I guess my best bet is to try the pilot powers (I'm still assuming these are what are stock on my 749s) Tuesday and see how I like them, buy the Power Race, and see how I like them for the July track day, when its over, by the time I do the August track day, I may be ready for a new tire and can...
  20. Track tires?

    Superbikes
    Tuesday will definetly be on the stock tires, I just checked with a local performance shop and they have the Michelin Power Race tires on sale for $275 a set, so I may grab them next week after I burn up my stock tires on Tuesday. :)
