that is the most beautiful sprocket I’ve ever seen.

my cheap solution was to switch to a 220mm 996 galfer rotor (550g) on my streetfighter and a 200mm Swiss cheesed rotor on my monster(500g at 6mm thickness, so will go down with time.

Before I shaved that last few grams off:

I figured moving weight closer to the axle will affect moment of inertia more than going with a lightweight 245mm rotor.

CeraCarbon make some amazing looking sprockets! Planning on getting one for the other bike at some point also, just need to decide on what carrier and size I want to use on the 1098 swingarm first. Sadly they cost quite a bit more for the SSSA but just have to have it. 😅

Spent a couple minutes in the shed today and swapped out the DPNS rearsets on the bike with my ValterMoto Type 3.5. Just love those rearsets. Might have to get a second set for my other bike also. 😅 Partially swapped on other side also. Adjuster plate is on but have to get the shift lever off it first as I already have a QS to complete the install.

The carbon exhaust cover needs to be replaced also as it's been worn down by the boots. Guess it did it's job. (y)
Will probably end up getting some titanium screws for it when I change it out because why not. 😁

Ok, this is probably a long shot, but do anyone know the approximate weight difference on the full rear swingarm assembly with all that follows between the 999 and 1098. Doesn't have to be very accurate, just interested in how significant the difference is.

Dragged the Radical out of the workshop today to give it a quick shakedown run. Things didn't exactly go as planned. Got the bike out but didn't get it started. Scratched my head for a few seconds until my stupid ass decided to check the tank. Yep, no fuel. 🤦‍♂️ At least the bike looks good out in the sun.

So the day was spent organizing a bit and making some more room to work on the bikes. Might just have to start on a 4th project after sifting through some spare parts.

Well, better luck next time I guess. At least now we have learned to check if you have any gas in the tank BEFORE dragging the bike outside. 😅

more pics and bling! :love:
Haven't done to much with the bike lately but put on some more carbon today and changed out some bolts. A couple was old and rusty and I needed longer ones for the carbon cover on the water pump so got some titanium screws from raceti for the bike. Pretty happy with them but now all the regular screws stands out as boring instead. 😂

Screws will get replaced gradually as I change/upgrade hardware. If i switch something out I replace the screws as well with Ti. 👍

Hopefully I'll get to spend more time on the bikes soon. Have way to many parts taking up space and more custom titanium/carbon parts on the way. 😁

Those are some nice bikes.... Maybe I’ll sell my 848evo and get a 999S

Got some new parts on the bike today. New sprocket from CeraCarbon, new chain adjusters and a lighter rear axle.

Project slowly moving forward. Should probably focus more on the other bikes to get them ready for the road considering the weather is starting to improve.

Got some time to work on the second 999R today which is currently stored at a mates house. Finally got to fit the Translogic QS. Had some issues with clearance due to the SSSA conversion so the old shift linkage was rubbing a bit on the carbon cover on the swing arm. Wasn't a fan of that so ended up getting a Bonamici shift lever that I mounted the QS on. Really love the results. (Please disregard the limping nature of it right now. Will be fixed when I adjust the position of it later so just left it loose for now.)

As you can see there now plenty of clearance between the rearsets and swingarm cover. 😅

Might switch out the rearsets later. Swapped my ValterMoto rearsets over on the Radical and will give these a try for now. If I'm not a fan I'll just get a second pair from ValterMoto's.
Trying to actually fit the mountain of parts I have accumulated before buying more parts right now but having a hard time restraining myself. 😅 Might be a common symptom for Ducati owners. 😂
