congrats, definitly looks better then the internet image allready, my only question is what s that paint you used? metalic blue?
Hi there Rob,Nice to see you back! Congratulations on your graduation (is that what they call it?) & good luck in your new career. Stay safe!
Given the job you've done on the Red Bull, I'm sure the forum expects even higher standards from your new project....
BTW have you measured any power gains from your mods? I know you dropped a lot of weight so even if your power gains weren't too significant, your power to weight ratio should be pretty good.
Not that any of that really matters in the real world, but this does: How does it ride?
Hey man, I think I saw your bike during Laguna Seca. Fantastic looking machine, as always.Welcome back and congrats on the great achievement! As long as you are in front of me when I see you in your work outfit, I will be glad to see you.
Getting the right painter to do these fairings was a nightmare. California recently switched away from oil-based paint (at least that's what all of the painters were telling me) that makes thing very difficult. But, I found a guy locally in San Jose who was able to recondition these Rage Designs fairings quite well. He matched the paint color from the original fairings.congrats, definitly looks better then the internet image allready, my only question is what s that paint you used? metalic blue?

Sorry for the late response, David. Not sure if you're still on this board, but thank you and best of luck with whatever career path you are taking. At the end of the day, stay true to your values and look after your family. That's all that matter anyway.YD - Well it has taken me a couple of days now to go through every page here and it was like reading through a book. The details, roadblocks, victories, and family support are all what makes this thread one of the best I have ever seen. You pretty much put a part of your life in this thread.
It has given me some inspiration myself, one, to finish my project, second, to not be afraid to try something new. I, myself am planning to change my career that will make a difference for the world I live in and follow my dreams. Fortunately for me I have only been out of college for a few years now.
Keep up the good work and I look forward seeing you build that 999, b/c I am planning on a streetfighter project based off the 999. I'll keep in touch when I do mine.
If you have time check out my project...http://www.ducati.ms/forums/56-superbikes/109006-996-project.html?highlight=996+project

Thank you Mr. Baron.wow! I just joined the forum as a 996 owner in sydney, australia. spent the last 2 days reading the whole thread.
well done mate! great to see someone putting in their own work and modding the bike their way. like some of the other guys not everything you did is to my taste but I have to give you massive credit for having a go and coming up with some great ideas.
also congrats on the career change. I hope you enjoy working as a cop.
most of all, ride it as often as you can!
I appreciate that, Kiwi, especially coming from someone like yourself. I have seen some of the work that you did on the RS bike a while back.Simply the most amazing thread I have seen on Ducati.ms. Thanks so much for sharing. Now have to go and re-set my eyes!
Hope the Policing is going well.
bumping an AMAZING thread.
1- what is going on with the 996RS frame and airbox?
2- did you ride the bike? how does it feel VS stock?
