I came across this 92 750ss yesterday. https://www.ebay.com/itm/1992-Ducati-Supersport-/143353563561?trxId=0

I thought to myself this has some nice parts on it that I would like for my 97 900ss, so I bought it. Then it occurred to me that I didn't know if anything would actually fit. What I want to use from it is the solo seat, the high pipes, and the wheels. From a little research last night it seems most likely the exhaust won't fit, but thats no biggie. But what about the seat and wheels? I'm picking it up this evening so I guess I'll for sure soon enough.

All the chassis stuff should fit, forks wheels , swing arm, seat. Back end of the exhaust too, but the headers would be short.

Mostly everything on that bike will fit on a slabby 900SS.

The exhaust would normally be the only thing to be worried about, the 750 SS came with slightly smaller headpipes than the 900 SS, which is funny since the 750 Monster came with the same size headpipes as the 900 Monster. At least, according to Bikeboy.

But that racebike has a mix of Termi and Ferrach pieces, so I would imagine it's the same as what went on a 900 SS.

It has nice forks, good rear shock and swingarm, big carbs, steering damper, solo seat, lighter wheels....quite a treasure trove of parts.

I'll bet that bike was a lot of fun on a tight, twisty track..

Yeah, i bought it because of all the nice parts. My 900 already has nice suspension upgrades, engine and carbs, but i thought this would be good to rob the couple pieces I want from it and part out the rest. I should end up with some nice stuff for free or better that way. I really hope i can use the high mufflers, too.

Wow that was a great deal!

The seat looks to be a aftermarket race tail so fitting oem type may take work ...or bolt on. No matter as the parts you bought more than cover the price of the whole bike, Magnesium or oem aluminum marchesini wheels? Be sure to let us know what the left over bike will be sold for If I was not cash flow poor right now I would have been all over that bike. Even the 41 keihins while not a carb I would put on most 900's would make a nice upgrade to your bike since you own them.

Simply take the best parts from both and build a fun bike and then sell/part or track the rest. Oh exhaust should work on the 900.

Keep in mind also that is not a engine that came in the bike as it is a later case and not compatible with the original motors. Give the other mods it could be anything from a 750 ,795,800 or others. post 1998 cases so who knows what other good parts are inside. Question is how much life do they have left?

Im guessing the wheels are probably aluminum, but not sure. There wasn't much detail in the listing. Ill be fine with them either way.

Im very interested in getting the engine apart to see what its got

Wow, I totally missed that bigger alternator cover...I'll bet it's a 750 Monster engine since it was originally carbureted.

Needs better pictures to tell. I have a carbureted 620 motor in my 750ss as well as build many carby 800's. Until you look closer you never know what you will find. A customer has a Reno leoni built 900 bevel motor it had various things done to it like rods of the wrong length for the high compression pistons in a attempt to make the higher compression streetable back in the early 80's.

A used race engine ... is like a box'O chocolates............

Ive gotten it part way apart now. The head pipes look to be from a 900ss, they have the same numbers stamped on them as my 900ss. So, that was good as the high mufflers bolted right up to my 900ss. The wheels look to be aluminum and are in really good shape. I just need to repaint them, get new tires mounted and theyll be good to go. Im very excited about the wheels in particular, im not a huge fan of the 3 spokes. All of the body panels are shark skins, some with new paint. Im gonna go ahead and use the seat after its painted and i get a seat pad. I tried searchjng the engine number to at least get a start on identifying it, but i didnt come up with much. Is there a place to get info based on the engine number like there is for the frame vin? The engine number is LA3X000989.

Those Marchesinis look like magnesium to me....

The Brembo Alloy versions have thicker spokes with extra detail, I have a set of Mag Marchesinis and they look a lot like those, do they have a lip on the edge of the rim? if they have no casting ID marks on them, especially "Brembo" cast in they may well be.

I have determined that the rear is magnesium. I don't think the front is. I was going to weigh them today, but by feel the seem to weigh about the same or the rear maybe a hair lighter. I would think if they were the same material, the rear would be noticeably heavier.
