Thanks guys. It's a 1098s front end. Pretty straight forward swap. Just make sure you have all your parts before you do it.

I always say yellow needs more representation since it's not as loved as red. It's really just how you put it all together.

She is a beauty, although I'm partial to red on Duc I'm partial to yellow on anything else and I think Duc's look great in yellow as well. My 998 started out as a yellow (but previous owner changed her over to red). The front end does look nice...

Can you re-use the stock front wheel and brake rotors w/ the 1098S front end setup?

Bike looks great!

Every time I see a yellow Duc I want to get my red 03' 999 repainted in yellow.
The 1098 front end looks right at home on the 998. How do you like the mono block calipers? I found them touchy at first on the 1098 that I rode for a short spin. I never got used to them....very, very powerful!
You have a exceptionally nice 998, looks complete w/ full Ohlins suspension:)

Yes and no. You certainly can reuse the front wheel as I have. You can not use the stock rotors or the 1098s rotors. You will need to get 15mm offset rotors which came stock with a 748R or a 998R. There are aftermarket companies that make rotor replacements for the 748R or 998R as well which are 15mm offset.

Thanks ZDM. Yellow is a nice change in an ocean of red sometimes. For the monoblocks, It wasn't hard to get use to. After bedding in the HH pads I got, they felt amazing. Just don't give it a hand full of squeeze and you're good lol. Gradual is key. :)
