Good Eye Tony! It's a special unobtainable Titanium piston caliper. It is a prototype for testing. It can not be bought so I haven't shown it much One of the benefits of working in the AMA MotoAmerica series. This caliper was actually on a bike that I tuned to 2nd place at Laguna. The stopping power is absolutely amazing. I have practically every brake pad compound to chose from. I always end up back with SBS. I have that compound available for the stock Caliper.I'm more interested in the Hayes monobloc caliper!
I have to disagree. It's the bike Ducati should build. It still retains stock FT handlbars and footpeg mount. What I have turned the bike into is a Scrambler with a Cafe feel, but with the ride and handling of a true Performance Ducati. No other Scrambler set up rides even close. Most of the custom moded Scramblers ride like a brick. The ride is super smooth and controlled over all road and surface types. I just road 1500 miles in 36 hours. Two 12 hour iron butt type rides with only stops for fuel. It was quite amazing even though it was 39 degrees Fahrenheit outside.You've turned a scrambler into a Ducati monster! :ambivalence:
Thanks Cliff, Still waiting on the seat because it is completely custom. I did get a email that said it was being all sewn together. I always forget about the stickers, it's almost time to powder coat the frame so those will be gone as soon as I'm done riding this winter.Very nice job there, Ken.
You must have been able to put a few miles on the new seat by now...Impressions?
Also, do us all a favor and remove those distracting stickers on the frame.
I found some bitch'en LCD's that will replace the turn signals and also the rear taillight combo. When I go for powder coat the taillights will get welded into the subframe.Nice looking bike but those frame stickers and the indicator spacers that push those indicators way out to the side detract from the looks
I've heard many different exhausts for the Scrambler. The high is my favorite so far. I started out with the restrictor in the pipe but it had to go. I just cost in late at night to not be rude to my neighbors.I like the high pipes too, does it get a nicer sound than the shorty? I have been thinking about fabricating twin exhausts for the sound.
