Yo Carbon, welcome and all that. Nice bike dude, I love it and I'm not a big fan of black bikes. That red frame just pops!

Know you're the new owner but do you have any knowledge about your clutch cover? Looks like the standard red DP clutch part. I ask because I put one on my 1198s a few months ago and it's no longer bright red - kind of washing out on me and IMO doesn't look good against my red frame.

I need to start another thread and attach a pic so as not to hijack your welcome.

Congrats!!!!!!

I wet myself a little looking at your bike…and I have one myself. Great buy. If you are anything like me you will spend hours and hours on this site and others learning everything you possible can about Ducatis. Also would be a good idea to find a riding club. They tend to have experienced riders in them full of Ducati info.

You don’t need the manual so much. You can easily find a free copy on line in PDF. I would definitely read it from cover to cover (especially if you don’t have a local dealer to hit up). Just make sure you got the spare key, key card and electronic chip from the original owner, otherwise you will spend a shxt load of cash and time getting a replacement key.

Now get some fork and swing arm sliders and you’re good to go. Keep the rubber side down.

That's so sexy, get in my belly!



...Always been a fan and was on the fence when I was picking up the 1198... went with power over attraction, lol, I think you made an excellent choice!

Sliders are like an insurance policy on your bike. They are plastic pucks attached by a metal rod through your front tire, rear axle, and through the center mount of the engine to protect their respective parts from grinding down in the event of an accident.

Swing arm sliders can also double as spool ends if you want to use a rear stand, and can easily be installed at home. Same can be said for the front fork sliders.

The frame sliders requires more work as you typically need to take the fairing off, hoist the engine, remove the center mounting screw and replace it with the frame slider bar before you can attach the sliders to either end. Then it protects your engine and frame from grinding away. Most 1098s have sliders that nestle under your farings, thus doing nothing to protect your precious Ducati plastic. I had the dealer install the frame sliders. They did it for free after buying the bike from them.

Above-fairing frame sliders exist, but would require you drill a hole in your plastics to let them out. While most Ducati dealers sell both under-mount and above mount-engine sliders (differing only in the length of the center bar), I have yet to see a Ducati with farings drilled to vent a frame slider.

I have fork sliders, swing arm sliders and under-mount engine sliders on my 1098.

Under-mount frame sliders are not visible with the farings on, but with them off they look like this:

Pretty simple to install. This is what the fork sliders look like: two plastic pucks and a center rod:Name:  fork slider.jpg

You attach one side, then run the center rod through your front axle:Name:  instaling 1.jpg

Here is what the finished fork slider looks like

Then finish it off by sealing the screws with lock tight metal glue to keep them from vibrating off:

In all this takes less than 20 minutes to complete.

Nice grips/bar ends - I'm rocking the same ones. The Rizoma red resevoirs look good with them...
