As some of you may remember a couple of months ago I picked up 2005 Ducati 749R that I wanted to use for track days. Well, it’s ready to go. I did basic changes that would allow me to have fun at the track day. First came Carbon Composite bodywork, painted in beautiful Krylon red. I spent way too much time getting it ready for painting, hopefully I will not have to do it again.
I have desided to go with Woodcraft rearsets because they are great quality, American made and replacement pegs are readily available.
Any Ducati with the dry clutch must have the open clutch cover, the mechanical sound it produces is pure heaven. Woodcraft makes really nice one, it’s strong enough to protect expensive slipper clutch in case of a fall. It somes with removable sliding block made out of stainless steel.
Since Woodcraft supplied all billet aluminum pieces, I also went with their clip ons, slightly longer than stock for more leverage and the bars are easy to replace in case of a misshap. The gas tank is pure sex.
To make sure my bike is crash worthy I added a set of under the fairing Speedymoto frame sliders. They are way more effective than your average frame sliders since the force is distributed over the fairing. Less chance of a bike flipping in case of a low side….
The last touch was AFAM 520 kit with bigger rear sprocket, theoretically it should help me to get out of the corners quicker and hopefully to keep up with the big boys.
Now if I could get my boot on so I can ride the damn bike!
