Whats the mileage?Ok race fans, hold onto your seats!
THIS BIKE IS NOW FOR SALE!
I have a new project that we'll be working on over the winter with another 899, and that will be my track bike for next year, so this one can go to a new home. The new project is going to be another 2014 899 with an engine build and full Magnetti-Marelli world superbike racing wire harness and electronics, so it doesn't make sense to start that with a bike that's already built. Obviously if you've followed this thread, this bike is pretty well set up with about everyting that can be done to an 899 without cracking the engine cases open. This will be a BARGAIN for someone who wants an ultimate 899 track bike, but it's still an expensive bike, so won't be for just anyone.
To head off some questions beforehand that do not need to be asked:
1) No, I will not sell any parts off of this bike, the entire bike is for sale as a whole. If someone buys the bike, and doesn't want some of the parts that are on it, then at that point those parts will be for sale, but the bike has to be sold first before that will be an option.
2) No, I don't have any of the street parts left, the bike will be delivered in track trim as it sits.
3) The bike has a clean street title from Ducati Omaha, but the bike is NOT in street-legal trim. I would highly recommend not even thinking of turning this back into a street bike, and if you do think about it, please don't ask for any assitance or advice on how to do it. This was built as a track bike from the start and has never been on the street.
4) The bike has no crash damage, has never been down, fallen over in the pits or anything of that sort.
5) You can have the painted/stickered bodywork that is on it, or I'll put a brand new set of unpainted bodywork on it if you'd rather, either way, same cost.
6) It is currently set up for 180-210 lbs. rider in gear, if you are outside that range I will swap in the appropriate fork and shock springs for you at no cost.
I went through and added up all of the parts on it, to replicate this with a new 899 and everything that is on it would be slightly north of $38,000.
I will sell this for $26,000 as it sits including everything, even the AiM Evo4 data logger and SmartyCam HD camera system that is installed on it so you can make the same kind of track videos that I've been making. I added up what the bike is worth in pieces if I were to tear it down, and it's about $28,000 even at used parts prices, so I've priced it to sell without having to do the labor to tear it down. So don't ask if I'll sell it for less, the answer is no, it's priced to sell. You can have everything that is on it. If you don't want all of it, then we can discuss what can be removed feasibly, but I'm only willing to remove a few of the simple things like the logger/camera if you don't want them, I will not remove larger items such as the carbon wheels, so please don't ask. Bottom line is that I've priced to so it can go as a whole and be a BARGAIN for the right buyer who wants the whole enchilada. I can assist with shipping anywhere, or you can come here and pick it up, up to you.
PM or call me at Ducati Omaha if you are seriously interested, 402-408-4400.

1250 miles. Has had 4 oil/filter changes, and will have another one right before the bike is picked up/shipped. If it's bought before this Sunday, I won't ride it at our last track day on Sunday, otherwise I'll ride it and it will have a few more miles on it.Whats the mileage?
Hey, it's been a while. Ready for warm weather?@tannercortes
I too am building a much more stock version of an 899 track bike. A big part of the reason mine is remaining more stock is that it has to comply with the super port rules in my club. For this reason I will be retaining the stock linkage, stock clutch, stock wheels etc throughout the bike.
Feel free to ping me if you have any questions. I should have pictures of the bike tomorrow and a first day track report after 5/1
Honestly I satrted both right in the middle and moved from there dependent on weather and track conditions. I ended up taking some compression damping out in order to make the bike transfer weight rearward a little better.Hey, it's been a while. Ready for warm weather?
I purchased an Ohlins TTX, had the servos removed, and stack set up for the 899. I assume similar to yours. Can you give me a good starting point for the compression and rebound?
Thanks. I guess that's as good a place as any.Honestly I satrted both right in the middle and moved from there dependent on weather and track conditions. I ended up taking some compression damping out in order to make the bike transfer weight rearward a little better.
For tracks with heavy braking zones I took out just a couple clicks of rebound, but for the flowing circuits I left it about midway through the range.
I am really happy with how the back of my bike turned out. Looking to make some changes to the forks in 2015.
Reduced rebound damping in the rear helps in heavy braking by allowing the swing arm to extend a little faster as the weight for the bike transfers forward. This allows the rear tire to maintain contact with the ground.Thanks. I guess that's as good a place as any.
So what does the reduced rebound do to help in heavy braking applications?
Got a couple upgrades done today before we get ready to load up and head out to Motorsports Park Hastings this weekend:
1) Brembo M50 Monobloc calipers (using 1199 brake lines to retain the ABS) with Performance Friction Carbon Metallic brake pads. I did this because there still aren't racing brake pads available for the 899 calipers from anyone, and it doesn't look like there will be for quite a while, and I was tired of....
2) MWR fairing bracket with oversize ram air intake:
see here - MWR Panigale Large Ram Air Intake Kit | MWR1199INTAKE
I was pleasantly surprised to see that the MWR fairing bracket and ram air piece was a full half pound lighter than what I had on there previously (1.3 lbs. vs. 1.8 lbs.) - so now I'm SURE the bike is under 360 lbs. with no fuel, but I'm not going to bother weighing it again until the 1199 fuel tank gets put on next week.
Here are some progress pics, you can see how I mounted the air temperature sensor in the fiberglass ram air tube:
The tape is just to hold it in place while the fairing is being mounted, it's a slip-fit piece that is held in by the fairing, that allows it to "float" a little bit so it doesn't crack and can accommodate different brands of fairings.Hello
Thank you for good posts
How did you fasten the bracket with the intake?
On the pictures it looks like duct tape?
Bought these myself but are waiting for the parts.
Where did you mount the SmartCam controller on your bike?The tape is just to hold it in place while the fairing is being mounted, it's a slip-fit piece that is held in by the fairing, that allows it to "float" a little bit so it doesn't crack and can accommodate different brands of fairings.
If you have the stock front fairing bracket, you can mount it right on top of that, just under the dash. On my race bike I had it mounted under the seat for a while, and also had it mounted to the side of the bike under the right side fairing next to the ECU.Where did you mount the SmartCam controller on your bike?
