T ermignoni slip-ons (with performance ECU and air box lid) look great and a suitably retro tone to the bark and bwooarr of an free exhaust on a 2 valve Ducati.

While the brake and suspension were necessary the big bore job and commander was over-kill, as these are big-torque fun even when But seeing as I was touching the engine some I opened up the airbox a custom filter cover and a big in the bottom to aid breathing.

Handling and

T he stock SC1000 forks real good. Too much speed compression damping, not spring, non-adjustable, not even (w/o a 2nd mortgage, payable to Dynamics). They bang and their way over sharp and ripples, so they’re not real when bimbling about.

they’re also too soft and not when you get all jiggy with it in the The worst of both worlds.

the planned fix was to snag some Ducati Supersport forks adjustable Showas) which fit mods and are sprung and damped well. They work well on the similarly light bikes. But then Paul at NPR came up with an irresistibly deal on a blingy set of Ohlins and a shock too!

For my 190lbs the Ohlins shock only a tiny amount of increase to get the desired 30% rider and the forks gave me the same out of the box.

Replacing the stock with sticky (and rounded) sporty tires a lot too. Reduced steering (at speed), a seemingly bigger patch (when cornering) and confidence/grip are benefits I felt some Michelin Pilot and the Dunlop qualifiers I’ve

Some people have down the inside of 4 pad Brembo to provide the necessary clearance, but I’m not brave (foolish?).

Alpina wheels provide enough and are …, plus lighter, tubeless, but they’re also a pair! So, I decided to fit some 3 Brembo wheels (off an because they provide clearance, fit without modification, are 9lbs lighter than (combined) and are appropriately “retro” in Plus, they can be gotten cheaply.

I played with the wheel options a lot (digitally) before on a satin black. White looked good too but not real and they’d need cleaning a

Result? Handling and braking are now 2 of the strengths.

T hese bikes need much cosmetic they’re mostly … straight from the factory. The suspension stuck out a bit much so I mixed up a custom blend of paints to match the gold and refinished a few parts to balance it all I modified a clutch cover gold-finished perf-metal vents for this purpose, then the disk carriers, and the rear hub.

The tough sporty look by the black wheels made the and bulky taillight/fender arrangement out of place. A handy bloke “Wasp” in Aus provided a tail kit that looks more

Just for fun I fabricated some to lower/tuck in the gauges, and got some 1100” decals made for the cowl, and "Ducati" ones for the

Comfort Versatility


These bikes are hideously in stock form. A lonnnng to the lowww bars strains and lower back more just about any sport out there.

A surprisingly simple and fix is to use 07 risers to add height, and then fit the of some 7/8” handlebars, to reach. I used an old set of speed handle bars. The trick is to a few inches of the bars stock on the ends.

The bent ends fit the risers, providing pull and variable bar angle (up/down).

The end is very adjustable; up to 2.5 inches of pull-back (less reach to the and about the same increase in bar In the highest/flattest setting these actually made the bike too and very non-sporty. They can be set down lower than the bars.

Easily adjustable too — it all of 3 minutes with an allen key to adjustments from all-day-touring to aggressive track-day ready. I somewhere in between so now this has gone from being the painful bike I’ve ridden to the most comfortable I’ve ever owned.

It uses an 07+ biposto sport seat that fits on. Then all that was needed was to fab up a of suitably strong steel and aluminum spacers, to attach Ducati passenger pegs I had over from my 2001 It worked great and looked factory.

Don’t whack the throttle too fast in first or second unless you want to flip backwards. Handling and braking street easy and track day More than enough and aggressiveness for the aging hooligan, and that make the stocker a bit tame.
