Ducati Convert- New Member Hi

Hi All,

Picked up a new to me 2010 1098 a couple of weeks ago and looking at upgrades, etc plus maintenance stuff as usual.

Marine engineer by trade, ex mechanic and looking at getting and giving the info back.

Hi to All and loving the V Twins already!

Already have questions but I`ll throw them in another post!

Any helpful hints and tips on the 1098???

Go and enjoy it. If you have never ridden a Ducati takes a little practice.

make sure the bike is well sorted out before spending $$ on upgrades, not that it needs a lot.
I got over-excited with upgrades when I first got it without knowing underlying issues....

Welcome aboard, the 1098 was almost my first Ducati, it's a beast of a bike!

Congradulations on the bike ,I've had 1098s for 11 years and still love it. You may have the year of your bike wrong because if it is a 2010 that would mean you have a 1198.

Congrats on buying the 1098. If you want descent fuel tank range, don’t thrash it like a Jap 4 cylinder. Use the twin’s low down torque. You will be surprised at how fast it will go keeping the revs 3-7000rpm. Over that and it gets real thirsty but loads of fun. Enjoy.

Get yourself the Desmo Times manual for it. Desmo Times Home Page

Look under the Written and Promotional link.
