I got the 99 750ss this weekend. All the looking i did online said this bike is F.I. yet the P.O. told me it was a carburated bike and it has a choke in the left clip-on. Did they make the 99 as a carburated bike?
The dial on the left handlebar is a choke if it's a carbed but is called an "enricher" on F.I. Bikes. And per Ducati North America the 1999 year for SS's was a split model year. There aren't many, but per my contact with them, there were some Carbies. On my home computer I have the correspondence with them that explains the designations in the VIN number for F.I. or Carb. I'll re-post when I find the e-mails at home... Good luck!
