Check e bay. You should be able to find everything you are looking for there. Just search by using the terms "Ducati carbon" and that should bring up everything you want. Best of luck.

The last time I checked stock, we had all those items in stock except for the CF gauge cover. I assume this is for 748-998.

I'm just curious what they were supposed to have done after this point, wasn't the next move where you call them, provide payment and actually order the stuff?

I'm just confused.

No.. I was told by the guy that I spoke to on the phone and sent the paperwork to that he was going to give it to another guy "I can't remember his name now" to work on it and will get back to me with the pricing. Haven;t heard back since and that that was able a month ago...

If you know the cost is 7k ??? Why do you need pricing.
And are you just asking them to price 7k worth of stuff and then only buy a 200.00 item?

Just curious really....

don't like the price, EBAY it and hope to high heaven the carbon isn't yellowed with aged and is some what close in weave pattern! It dosn't make sence, if you want the race stuff you are going to have to pay for it!

I never saw a list. Did you call or email back? It is unusual to have someone ask for prices via email when all the prices are posted on the website. We have a registered member price for people that buy a lot of product.

I'm not making excuses but we process and ship over 50 complicated orders a day, answer a lot of phone calls and emails per day. At the end of the day the stack of papers and requests get piled up pretty high. Most of our time is spent on the other side hunting down parts. If you asked for stuff that is not on the website--it could very well be something that has to be researched for availability and price. It does not hurt to make the extra phone call or email before badmouthing us. It wouldn't take any more time than posting on this forum.

No, that was the cost/quote a local performance place gave me to replace all of my stuff that was stolen. I wanted to see if I could get a better pricing online, HENCE going online for pricing..

Sent to [email protected] Tuesday 04/06/2006 - 6:36pm Central time.
I received the response from him 2 days later indicating that he is giving this to Stephano to work on.. Never heard anything since so I spend my money elsewhere

Hi Matt.
I spoke to you yesterday about various parts that I needed. I've included the list for you. Please give me your best pricing. I am registered as a racer. My username is ****

Here is the list of what I need.

All of this will go on a 2002 998 Mono.

1. 54mm Termignoni Full Exhaust. Preferrably the Carbon cans but the Ti cans will be ok.
2. Complete Mono Tail Section With ALL hardware, including lights, mounting etc.
Here is the seat that I want, if you can get that, it would be great
http://www.worldofqbcarbon.com/products/ducati/916/748916.htm
Its the DUCATI MOTOGP SEAT KIT - Includes Seat, undertray, LED stop/tailight - fits standard subframe and exhaust - unpainted. So that might take care of my seat.
3. Complete Sides, and Front nose fairing. I want that in Carbon Fibre. Painted Ducati Red Of Course. don;t know if I will need the underbelly pan for the 54mm Termi's but if I do, include that in the price. Carbon Fiber of course.
4. Ohlins Steering Dampner
5. 10-14 Dzus fastners for the fairings and underbelly pan.
6. Shift Lever
7. LF Foot Peg
8. RH Foot Peg
9. Water Pump Cover
10. Water Pump Gasket
11. Rear Brake Lever
12. Front Brake Lever
13. Left And Right Hand Mirrors. Something nice. Carbon Fiber.
14. Front Fender CF <-- Can be left unpainted.
