My 1098s Modding Completed!

Hey everyone, first I would like to thank everyone
who helped me indirectly modding this bike as I gained allot of knowledge and figured out what will suit my bike best. I did not want to go crazy with CF parts, but I had to get some

Shift-Tech stuff.
Mud guard
Key Chain
and Ducati CF gas tank cover

Full termi- Ceramic coated headers, The charcoal Filter have been removed from day
one of purchase, Speedy moto sprocket cover, black rearsets, relocated taggs under exhaust and for clutch cover I have the open clutch by ducati as to me it looks perfect and suit the color of the bike well. on the way right now is Pazzo levers/long/black and Rizmo black hand grips also KELLERMANN Micro Polo "LED" Turn Signal: Black on the way to be fitted in the air vents instead of the the original signals in the vents already.

enough said here is the picture with Canon Rebel XTI

Jet Hot did that job, it took 2 weeks to send it
and get it back installed, might take
less if you express ship it and the same back.
They did a great job and the finish is excellent!

hey kingy,
it it cost about 60$ as Donnie in Duc Pond took the original and installed them there. the light is not
strong so the LED's is a must have, you will need
to drill a hole above the exhaust cans to insert
the wires from there, and just seal it good.

Demon, I must say that is totally badass! The one other thing I would do is paint the swingarm black! It would compleate your midnight stealth look! I sent my swingarm and kickstand out to powdercoat black and love it! Would look even sicker on your black bike.

Thanks Desmohugh,
Been seriously thinking about that, a friend of mine
has a high end auto custom shop, the only problem
is I don't know how to get the swing arm out!
I have full set of tools for the bike also the shop manual, any advice on how to get it out?

Demon, you have a very nice looking setup, and I agree the clutch cover really fits your Duc well. I also agree with Hugh on the powder coating the swing arm bit. I have the base 98' and will be looking to take it apart during the winter to throw it in my oven (if it fits, if not, time to build a new PC Oven).

Keep in mind doing that Demon, you will have to get a new Master Link for your chain, you'll want to get new seals etc. Bascially support the bike w/ center/frame stands cut the chain ML, remove chain, remove wheel/brake/sprocket and axle assembly, and then shock and SA Pivot, remove all seals, bearings and clean it thoroughly. Get coated, install lubed bearings w. new seals etc and reverse.

I'm planning on having my buddy polish mine prior to coating for an ultra-smooth finish.

Thanks for the advice Cat3,
seems like a hassle but well worth it,
I might go a different rout, CF swingarm cover by
Shit-tech and powder coat the Kick stand.

Any pictures of the CF swingarm installed?

I liked the look of that SA Cover as well. If I have another day like today (rainy, dreary) I'll be pulling the stand, and factory rearsets and passenger hangars to powder coat them before it dries up and gets to be riding wx again

Desmo and Cat, just spoke with the shop
they can do it with powder coating for both pieces "swigarm and kickstand"
will take 10 days in total to do it and the bike will be ready for pick up.

Speaking of sexy, I polished the bike with machine,
and waxed it with Swissvax Mystery < $500 wax

I just got the Pazzo levers Black / Red adjusters and installed them!

I also got the Rizmo hand grips, going to install them now hopefully I don't run in to a problem, they told me there is glue under the OEM grips that I might need to use a screw driver to loosen them off.
