It has been exactly one week since I picked up my 1998 Ducati Monster 900 in pieces. The previous owner had it stripped down to the frame and powdercoated. Various circumstances prevented him from finishing the project, and had passed it on to me.
What I started with.
Straight down to the frame, luckily almost everything was intact, like the harness, which made it easier to assemble.
However, this isn’t just any Monster, some extremely nice goodies came with it, courtesy of the ever so rare CycleCat company.
CycleCat Top Triple
Keihin FCR41 Carburetor kit from CA-Cycleworks
K&N Pod Filters
Dyna Coil Kit from CA-Cycleworks.
Integrated Taillight from Clear Alternatives.
Carbon Fiber front turn signals.
Carbon Fiber Rear Tire Hugger.
14t front sprocket and -4 rear sprocket.
Swingarm Mounted, Suspension mounted!
And that’s where we stand today, a week later. Today, (Day 7) I sorted out and secured the wiring harness, coils and taillight.
Among the parts ordered last night:
Exhaust half bushes
Clutch Hub (Because I snapped one off, damnit)
Clutch and Brake Master cylinders (only need the clamps, but can’t find them by themselves!)
Currently, my task is to sort out the fuel line routing, and vacuum line for the vacuum fuel pump.
Thanks for reading so far, and Thanks to the DMF! (www.DucatiMonsterForum.org)
