BTW, I have all the original bodywork and pipes. I couldn't stand not putting on the carbon, though.
Here's what I did to "solve" some of those problems. 1. Yes, get a Sargent. Lovely piece. 2. Go to Stage 2 (sometimes called European) jetting for the carbs. It will warm up much quicker. 3. Give the seating position a good trial before you get upright. If you can adjust, you will never go back. I've ridden mine cross country with stock bars. 4. Bar end mirrors work very well. I loved my CRG's. Expensive but very cool and effective. IMHO, the Ducati SS may well be the perfect sport bike for the street.
No. The Duc I had wasn't an FE. Sorry for the confusion, I was speaking about pre-98 SS types in general. I had two, a '97 SP and a '96 SP. Great bikes but they need the carbs rejetted from stock and either a 39T or 40T rear sprocket to be right.rockitdoc said:bruce,
thanks. i called sargent and they don't make a seat for the FE or SL. they will custom build one on the OEM seat, though. is that what you meant?
