Back in the Ducati fold -- a past life saw me with a 900ss FE, and a 999. Bought this 2002 900SS ie from a racing buddy who is stepping away from competition. Needs a complete overhaul, but I love working on and tweaking bikes. Plan to make a cafe racer.... although the fuel injected tanks have a funny shape about them... First things first, I bobbed the rear of the seat subframe.
Recycled some of the tubing and worked on my acetelyne welding skills... not bad.
Next I extended some of the wiring to allow me to move the battery back under the seat. Will use a lithium ion suitable for this application.
I had a small koso guage from another project, that I mounted using the ignition key mounts.
In order to hide all the wires that were behind the fairing (I am going with a single headlight), I am ditching the airbox and running pods from California Cycleworks. I need to fab mounts and brackets for all the items under the tank. The start -- ECU and fuse box.
I also ditched the stock exhaust and found some headers from a DB4 Bimota at a silly cheap price.
When its finished, obviously a fuelling module (PCIII) of some sort will go on and help with the fuelling.
Should be a fun project.
