Hi kiddies - I have the 2006 yellow monoposto sport classic. Only got 1000 km on it before I put it away for the winter. But just so you know, this is one of those bikes that is kind of strangled in stock form. Put on a decent set of pipes, open the airbox and tweak the fueling, plus lower the final drive gearing, and it is a different world. Mostly it is about losing that dip in the midrange. See for example Brad Black's tuning exercise on the 2006 Sport 1000:

It's a shame Ducati can't simply deliver them like that. They have to do some rude things to these air cooled bikes to get them past emissions and noise testing. The DS1000 is a sweet motor once you set it free. For $1200 you can buy the Terminogni exhaust kit, along with the remapped ECU and open airbox cover. A 14-T front sprocket will set you back $40 or so.



Cheers.

Yep, kpaul was sportbikebandit (another of his "kfibs"). I figure he'll invent himself a bunch of new sockpuppets to agree with him.

Some of us like the 90 degree thing. Like any V twin, it sounds like it's not really working very hard, but as revs rise, it starts sounding Interested at about the same point that the Harley sounds a little frantic and thrashy. Just one guys view...

Danged Irony detector is going off again. What did I miss?

Something eminently do-able right now, it seems to me, would be to build a lenghtened, more sport touring oriented Buell using the V rod engine. I've always wondered about that. It's a niche market, but so's the one they're in now.

Just tatoo a pony tail to the back of your skull. No muss, no fuss.

That helmet will save yer life - but it'll break yer neck and you'll be need a machine to help you poop the rest of your life!



Besides, helmets make it so's you can't hear anything, and they obscure your vision so's you can see anything, and they make yer neck tired so's you fall asleep with a crick in it, and........

Best of both worlds - the 52-degree Hawkie-thing with a "Skuzzy Muzzy" on it........
