  1. 900ssie Headlight - Any good upgrades? HID? LED?

    Supersport
    Not sure if the 1000 had better optics with the plastic housing, but my 1000 has decent lighting with an led bulb. But I had to go through a few that had a decent light pattern. The common theme is you need to pay to get a well designed bulb with a useful pattern. Before you go spend the...
  2. flywheel machining

    Supersport
    I went thru Ben at Fox performance, and maybe I caught him on a bad day but I chalked it up to the cranky machinist syndrome, and he did everything as advertised. I haven't actually installed it yet, since I just took my bike out of winter storage today. I currently have a Nichols and damn I...
  3. 900ie running issue.

    Supersport
    Have you dialed in CO trims? And air bleeds after sync?
  4. '04 SS 1000DS lower fairing & exhaust heat

    Supersport
    Mine was heat checked and cracked. Was able to gain some space by loosening clamps and pushing pipes into downpipes as far as they would go. But then I always felt that might precipitate cracking. I ended up getting half fairings for it(for different reasons...) that made the issue go away...
  5. Idler Pulleys as a Maintenance Item

    Supersport
    This is a very timely and appreciated post! I have been searching online for tensioner/roller bearings the last few days and couldn't help to think that: A/ Any Ducati specific part seems very Ducati in price B/ If I take it apart I should be able to remove the bearing and source something...
  6. UGH... Need advice on a major screw up.

    Supersport
    Time-serts are great... and a big-sert would add some shoulder to get a drain plug crush washer to seal... maybe... https://vwparts.aircooled.net/Big-Sert-Thread-Repair-Insert-6-x-1-x9-4mm-56101-p/56101.htm
  7. 2003 1000ss ECU replacement

    Supersport
    I got a reflashed ecu from metroduc(ducatidepot i think) when my ECU crapped out and I lost a cylinder. I think it was the DP equivalent flash. Regardless, it is awesome and am totally happy with it! I am not sure if it actually raised the RPM or my old ECU was crapping out and not allowing...
  8. What have you done to/with your SS today?

    Supersport
    Termis! And... finally found a minty set. :yeah:
  9. Exploded Parts Diagram

    Supersport
    Try sifting thru this... I know some of them are mislabelled... one listed a maint. manual and was actually a parts book. https://www.carlsalter.com/ducati-service-manuals.asp
  10. Vibey at mid-range...?

    Supersport
    Lol I describe riding my bike to my inline 4 riding buddies as a very fast tractor. Once they ride it they agree. Changing your gearing should help. And setting up your trims/TB balance/TPS should help too.
  11. to drain or not drian carbs - 5 week hibernation

    Supersport
    HIBERNATION for 5 weeks??? Damn you people with no winters!!! LOL. Gas stabilizer will make you feel better, but for 5 weeks like some others have said, just park the thing. If you bike has a clock, or other parasitic drains, disconnecting the ground lead would be a good idea. Is it being...

  15. Ducati Depot?

    Supersport
    Hey does anyone know if ducati depot is still in business? I have been trying to get ahold of them for a few weeks and they never answer or return calls... And I won't buy an time online(from their website) if they can't answer a phone... But then does anyone know of any other sources of...
  16. Ds ignition coil question...

    Supersport
    Hey does anyone have any experience fitting 1000ds multistrada coils onto a 1000ds supersport? They appear different in photos and have a different part number but aren't the engines mechanically the same? I am thinking the p/n's are different because of packaging considerations. Thanks in...
  17. Took the plunge...

    Supersport
    I used small squares of Velcro(the fuzzy side) and stuck it on the tank where the seat was rubbing. Athough I didn't have any issues of the staples poking out, the Velcro keeps the tank from getting worn out from the contact. Sweet ride, by the way!!! :yeah:
  18. HID Light Kit

    Supersport
    ahhh gotcha! :think:
  19. HID Light Kit

    Supersport
    interesting. I would have thought your bike would use an h4 bulb. 5th gen vfr's used an oddball bulb(not sure if it is proprietary Honda...) that had the lower tabs at a different clock angle. a lot of people just cut or bent the tabs back and installed the bulb. the spring retainer held the...
