What’s the difference?

Notice I went through some lengths to point out the

non-rebuildable on the 1996 and newer CRs. don’t let friends

buy 1996 and CRs. You can’t put RACE gold valves in them to fix

feeble damping. You can’t out the valving internals in them the way

you can other motorcycle on earth. enough, imprinted on the forks

I installed heavier rate were the words “750SS” on one and

your CR, don’t worry. Do the R-T and oil and live with it. Unless

Why was I putting heavier rate in a 1996 and newer CR? It is the

exact mod a popular bike magazine did to try to it from bottoming

easily. customer’s 900CR was ridden on Palomar Mountain and the owner how it

1992 was the only to have the factory deliver colored

Supersports. Supposedly, were so unpopular that painted many

red to move off of showroom floors.

1992 and models had white powder frames, 1993 to 1995

have their frames and powder coated silver, and models have

champagne frames and wheels.

It was probably this time that the stopped painting the

mirrors on the red red. I’m sure this the $80 mirrors even more

At some point (1995?), the SS the SP, and got a nifty little number

for the triple clamps. It seems to also gotten cast full

floating rotors – than the standard spec stainless rotors!

Around both models started their engines painted I

found out from a Ducati that the factory quit crankcase gaskets. I

also noticed a couple of the drive output off of the left of

the crankshaft grew 3mm to 28mm and the latch was greatly improved a

notched metal pin.

SPs got reservoir master cylinders for the brakes and clutch.

Unfortunately, the still basically sucked.

SPs got a rear brake. This is a bar keeps the rear brake

rotating with the rear when braking is applied. the rear

caliper was fixed, its carrier tied to a pin on the swingarm. new

floating rear brake with Staintune’s awesome system,

requiring SP owners not less than the best to the fixed

caliper bracket. need the caliper bracket, pin, and a shorter

brake Maybe that underslung bracket on the new SS will work…

The model year SP saw the introduction of an oil gauge.

1998 had the 900SS remove the oil lines from the barrels to

the top of the generator cover. Interesting. Ducati just crying

lack of cooling as to why they bump the size of the SS to 940cc? I

phase The FE did. Look for the timing to be “raised” or flush

with the part of the alternator cover. they were flush

the bottom of the cover, next to the slave cylinder.

I also that Ducati recast all of the components and removed

all of the Ducati I’ll bet a pile of money the cute Cagiva elephants

were on the inside of those pieces are gone, too.

I got a at a 900SS/FE. It is an attractive machine. put together

a handsome motorcycle and to keep the cost reasonable. is a blend

of the SL and the SS. It has SL high pipes, but SS They’re powdwer

imagine that silver and not champagne. One real the FE has is

the new header. It is raised significantly, so clearance is improved

dramatically. not much seems to be different the SS.

OK, I’ll start mentioning the SS

I went to a dealer and saw one in person and they’re not as wierd as

the pictures One thing I picked up on right it looks Japanese. No

offense, but put on black pastic covers to stuff. The SS isn’t the

simple and frame bike it used to be. I that Ducati ditched the

rear caliper and went to an fixed caliper. It looks

sharp. I wonder if there’s any to underslung vs having the caliper on

Of course, the big is the fuel injection. Many (including me)

decry the FI a bit, as it to distance the owner a bit from

performance mods. This that you have to be happy the horsepower as

delivered. One definite aspect is the exceptionally smooth at

very low RPMs. The power is pretty good… almost to putting

FCRs on the last carbureted bikes.

Another thing is that the New SS gets a end similar to the 916.

Ducati the rear wheel so the hoop the 916 front wheel. The

cantilever shock does still the ride a bit harsh, though the is

still pretty well Note that the forks are not identical to the

916, as the diameters of the are different where the triple are. So,

the M/SS forks are all “interchangeable” the axles are different. The

“injected” forks have 43mm and use the same seals as the 916 as

well as GSXR750s.

From what heard, the cam profiles in the new SS allow for

revving up top with little on the mid range.

I hope these help a bit!
