that engine is tits..Recently finished putting my 93 900ss back together following the discovery of a crack in my frame last August.
Whilst I had it apart I painted the engine, had some JE hi comp pistons fitted. Polished the swing arm, fitted an i.e shock, new belts and shim adjustment, new chain and sprocket with wheely gearing!!, new rear sets, mini indicators and small number plate and someone gave me a carbon fibre rear hugger. Oh, had my seat re-painted and made some under seat brackets which were allways missing! I fitted the 916 front end and fcrs last winter. I am really pleased with it.
No, simple answer, I did'nt! Not noticed any pinking. The chap who fitted them did comment at how well they went in.that engine is tits..
i recently did the JE pistons as well, did you adjust the timing to compensate?
just wondering as I left mine stock and I get some pinging at high throttle applications.
The bike looks so uber-clean, nice job on it. In your last picture (rear view), is the exhaust actually uneven, or is it just the angle of the picture?I've just partially finished my 1995 Ducati 900SS CR/Supermono Conversion and entered it in our local motorcycle show here in Anchorage, Alaska. I finished second in the People's Choice Award to a radical custom Harley-oh well, no accounting for taste, especially in Sarah Palin's ex-state!!
