After I had the forks bolted up it was time to
add some protective parts:


I chose the
R&G Radiator, Oil Cooler, and
Crankcase protective guards kit.


You can also spot some of the many Carbon
Fiber additions in these pictures...


Including the
Carbon Dry Carbon Fiber Front
Fender, and V-Fairing.
My goal was to create a very different 1098, unlike anything else that had been built before
Where to Start?

Well, after a couple trips to Deals Gap, and
several runs up and down highway 28 (also
known as HellBender), I decided it was time to
sure up the front end a bit.

This was accomplished by adding:

The Marzocchi 50mm RAC Works SBK Fork Kit

and

ALTH Star Cut 330mm Fully Floating Rotors

Result:

Problem More Than Solved!
Naturally once I swapped out the Front Rotors,
It just made sense to change out the Rear
Rotor with the matching
ALTH Star Cut Full
Floating Rear Rotor .

&

While I was at it, I added the
ALTH Quick
Change Rear Sprocket and Carrier kit as well.
The Championship Winning Bitubo XXF 31 Fully
Adjustable Rear Shock found its way onto my
bike, and was a very welcome improvement
over the stock Rear Shock.

The huge amount of Adjustability, along with a
Hydraulic Preload Adjuster made setting up the
rear for my weight and riding style extremely
easy!
Our custom 1098 is also
the 2008
Ducati SuperBike Concorso Winner!!

The Ultra Lightweight Forged Magnesium Marchesini Wheels replaced the stock cast aluminum ones
Searching for True Beauty?

Just look at the Detail in the
Carbon Dry
Carbon Fiber Side Panels
At this point I thought I was finished... I was wrong.
An EVR Slipper Clutch was added for safety and
performance

We placed an
EVR Billet Clutch Cover over it

CRG SSR Rearsets allowed me to position the
pegs in just the right position, which is great at
6'1"s tall

Attached the
Carbon Dry Thermal Barrier Frame
Inserts

Added Carbon Dry's Undertank Side Panels

And

FMF's All New Apex Mufflers!
There is SOO Much to See in this picture, but
the only things we haven't mentioned already
are the:

Competition Werkes Fender Eliminator

EVR Clutch Slave Cylinder

And the

EVR Sprocket Cover
Finishing Touches of 2009:
We recently added the Competition Werkes AfterBurner Exhaust, Rizoma Clutch Cover,
Attack Performance Rearsets, removed our oem mirrors, added Oberon Mirror Block
Off Plates, and Oberon's Bar End Indicators, along with a 1098R front fairing, and had
our passenger rearsets
CarbonDry Protec coated.
At some point I realized it's no fun being "finished" with a bike, so I got creative and
added a few more subtle changes, including
Fren Tubo's red protective coated stainless
steel individual brake lines that somehow made my brakes feel even better, and the
Speedymoto Sellwood clutch cover.
Finally giving into temptation, we replaced the oem fluid tanks with these stylish billet
aluminum ones from
Rizoma (specifically the CT025 and CT027, along with their
matching mounting brackets, the CT045B)
Oz Forged Aluminum Wheels where added, in exchange of the Marchesini's, and
this would be the final version of our Ducati 1098 before it was sold at the 2010
Indianapolis MotoGP.
