New 1198 owner

Hello all. Just purchased a 2011 1198, 1-owner, all original with 4224 miles. I am riding for a couple months on the road this year then planning to turn it into a track bike over the winter for 2020 track season. I will be pulling all the original stuff off and replacing with track stuff.

Any recommendations as far as upgrades would be greatly appreciated. This will replace my 2004 GSX-R1000 as my primary track bike. I still have my 2009 GSX-R1000 as a back up.

I have a nice coolant hose kit for you, the original rubber hoses should be replaced at some point anyway: https://www.ducati.org/forums/parts/...-848-1x98.html

I'm thinking you should just give it to me and take up crack. It's cheaper and less addictive then a Ducati track bike.

ECU flash, BST rims, carbon everything, good suspension tuning, aluminum tank....maybe some hot models to take pics of with it and a gorgeous umbrella girl....I'm sure I missed a few things there but my mind stopped working after the women popped in there.

Thank you for the offer but I am a basic black kind of guy. When I replace the hoses, they will be just black.

Thank you for the input, I plan on getting addicted. I have been riding on the tracks in the UK for the past 7-years and it has been brilliant. I am hoping to make the smile even bigger with the Duc.

I am just a simple person. Basic black blank fairings and only performance/protection mods. As I am not a racer, BST is just not in the cards. I am looking at the 1198SP Wheels but that is about it. Bike will go to JHP Performance over the Winter to have them apply their magic. I am looking for over 100 lbs-ft of torque. I do not plan on using DTC.

Keep them coming

The best track upgrade for me was a slipper clutch , I highly recommend one if your bike does not have one already. High compression L twin ducati bikes will easily lock up the rear wheel under hard braking, also get a woodcraft clutch cover to protect it in the event of a crash.
