Yes, Yes, Yes!So its not about that old chestnut "learn to ride what you have already"
nor is it a money saving idea, although like most there is not a bottomless pit.
i am interested in utilising the best and or final evolution of a ducati twin that fits into the two engine bolts and swing arm pivot frame, with minimal fuss. Yes i need to make best use of whats out there...i may even consider buying a 1198s bike to take all the bits i want and sell the rest.
i currently have a frankenduke 748R framed bike with a pretty special 104 bore 1098 cranked motor...that pulls like a train...but i now want the project of building assembling more...
because, i can!
R cams won't fit in 1098. 1098r is actually a 1198. You after a gazillion horsepower? Why? Is it an exercise in seeing how much you will get? ANY COMBINATION WILL WORK, some more so then others. Where do you stop? I'd say a WELL set up 1098 should keep you happy. If not........
May not be the answer you want to hear but you asked the question so there's my thoughts.
Post edited. Need to find my notes on those cams.Imo OP is VERY clear about asking for input regarding combinations available.
He is also very clear about making his own decisions from that info, so lets discuss the options!
For starters R-cams will fit 1098 heads, done it many times. So I think its best if X-racer edits that post as its misleading, and possibly delete som other posts cluttering the subject.
I'll write a post during the day and get back.
