Greetings to all from a first time ducati owner.been lurking for about a week or so now and just have 3 quick questions for the people who know it all. i just picked up a 2001 996 bipost from a divorce, all she wanted was to pay off the bank $7600.00 bike has just under 3000 miles all carbon fiber body and tank various carbon goodies what i believe to be full forza exhaust and may or may not have a 1040 kit on it(what i was told by the son ).searched for the easiest way to clean the inside of my headlights but found nothing, any tips would help. they have an annoying yellow haze in them. secondly the price,jsut wondering if the price i paid was fair? frankly i would have paid a lot more since i was hooked on ducati's since i saw my first 916!!!! any input would be great Thanx

congrats sounds like you got an awesome deal. I didn't know 996s came in black though. Was that a custom paint job?

i believe it to be just a plane jane 996 with a so so paint job, thinking of changing it to titan grey, or the nieman marcus sliver from the old 748 limited in the off season

You're one of those lucky people I've heard about! Congrats. You got a killer deal.

I can't imagine what would've caused a yellow haze in the headlights. Are you sure it doesn't have some kind of yellowish bulbs?

Good luck. Have fun. MH

I definitely had a haze in one of my lights when I got my 748. Not yellow, but definitely a haze. I removed the headlight assembly, removed the bulbs and wrapped a clean terry cloth shop rag around the handle of a wooden spoon of all things! I wanted something that wouldn't just poke through the towel. The fuzzy terry cloth did a good enough job off getting in between all the grooves of the lens.

You may try something along those lines...

Nice snag BTW...
