Mine is a FE. (listed earlier in this post) I have all the original bodywork and tank in perfect condition. The bike has all new painted body work to mimic the Superlight IV and V that were only available in Europe. (the 1993 SL's were a bit different here in the states)

Mine has a Staintune spaghetti system, 944 BCM kit, Keihin 41mm, Ohlins shock, lightened flywheel, stainless lines, Ducati OEM late model clutch basket, cleaned up ports in the head and matched intake runners, stock seat as well as a Sergeant seat, stock exhaust, Dyna coils and wires, 39T rear sprocket...blah blah blah....

She sounds amazing and looks the business with either bodywork on. It would be hard to part with.....but a new SuperEnduro may cause the sale

Another vote for any two valve Ducati. I currently have an '01 Monster 900s that has been dead reliable, and is easily the favorite of all of the bikes I have owned. Maintenance is easy if you have some mechanical ability and patience. Super fun to ride. The sound it makes WOT at about 7500 rpm would be worth just about any price.

My 888 is much nicer than SD990s bike. I know 'cause I have ridden his bike.

I want a 950 Adv. so buy my bike instead. Remember, the RED ones are faster!

In my most EVIL voice.. .."NEVER." That exhaust is priceless and is half the reason I love the bike sooo much. Everyone always wants that gem!

Well, not "priceless" but $$$ ($1600 last I had a chance). Chris at http://www.ca-cycleworks.com got a group buy for Staintune a couple of years ago (they wouldn't do less that 10 header sets I recall), and like an idiot I didn't jump on it. My header has been narrowed and opened by Rob North (flat track frame legend) here in SD, so no dragging and possibly better breathing-but the Staintune is all about looks and cool factor!

Back when I found my Termignoni spaghetti system, there was a shop in Japan that had a few remaining new in box. Termi systems, that is. If memory serves, they wanted $3k per. It's a total longshot (that they'd still have any available), but if you're interested in trying to contact them, I can dig through old emails and might be able to find the name of the shop.

Well.....I didnt really mean "priceless" but as you stated Chris got this one on a group order and according to him.....Stainetune isn't doing anymore group orders for these. And you are right ........they are all about the looks and cool factor!

Arch....if you could grab a fet Termi spaghetti systems I'm sure there would be more than a few buyers out there. There is also a guy at BCM making custom spaghetti systems for the 900ss bikes....expensive but nice.

It's on my bike in the earlier pic in this thread, or, here it is from the other side.



Doesn't look much different than just your typical set of high mount Termi mufflers from above, but when people notice its their fabled full system, well, they tend to go ga-ga. It's very tucked in, all slip joints are spring loaded, etc, etc. I was VERY happy to have stumbled upon this example years ago, especially as I was able to buy it for about $1300.

All that said, unless you're doing headwork and all the other more involved stuff, mufflers or the more common (but still unobtanium) Farne style Termi system are more than adequate.

Also, attached is a fuzzy pic of the stuff from the box.

can't decide which one to get...
RJ... Noted a Paul Smart in the classifieds today.. zero miles, Termi's included, price reduction versus list.

That said, and just to go against the grain of this thread, I really enjoyed an '01 900ss. The 2V Duc is certainly full of soul, but as bike consolidation happened, it was the 2V that went while the 4V remained. Yeah, the maintenance is more involved, but the performance difference, the thrust and rush, is so much more with the 4V. Undeniably noticeable. Would climb 285, hit a temporary passing lane, and really have to gas the 2V for roll-on acceleration. 4V? Instant bye-bye, and those booming Termi's on a 4V are unlike anything else. Just FWIW .

Yes but I live in hot Denver and those under the seat pipes roast me...

I was all set to throw money down on a 999 but jeebus, the SportClassic just seems to be a more fun street bike... I just don't do enough track days to justify the watercooler Ducs... as much as I was emtionally there, mentally/physically can't do it... after test riding a 999 I realized I wasn't ready for F1 racing, as my skills were not anywhere close to being ready...
