Sorry about the late reply. Mods are: High rise windscreen, custom painted front number plate (to match the rear tail piece), CF "short" mirrors painted Ducati red, custom flush mount 6"x1/4" rear LED brake light, Marchesini forged magnesium triple tree, Yoyodyne titanium front axle, Brembo radial brake and clutch levers, CF instrument surround (the dealer thought it would look nice...but I probably wouldn't have ordered it!), CF ram air tubes, Bucci WSB spec slipper clutch with CF clutch plates, JHP quickshifter, CF oil breather box, DP rearsets w/GP shift pattern, Cycle Cat fully open aluminum clutch and sprocket covers, AFAM 520 chain conversion with 15/38 gearing, DID gold chain, complete Corsa magnesium swingarm (incl monoblock brake, Corsa disc, etc....it was VERY difficult to get all the genuine parts and cost three arms and a leg), CF Corsa swingarm protector, Yoyodyne clutch master slave cylinder, Michelin Pilot Race soft compound front and medium compound 180/55 ZR 17 rear, Moto Wheels license plate relocator (custom fitted to the underside of the oil breather box). The bike has the full system 50mm CF Termi's mounted w/chip (which came as part of the "race" kit) as the stock stuff was immediately discarded. The bike has 2500 miles on it and dyno'd at 129.4 bhp at the rear wheel (no ram air effects) and 71.4 ft/lbs or torque. I will probably leave the interior of the motor alone, but I may add the following parts in the future: CF Corsa fuel tank (relocating the ignition switch somewhere else); CF front fairing; CF headlight bucket (retaining the stock fairing mirror supports); magnesium valve covers, etc. that fit the 999 but will still fit my motor, CF wheels. I may install the Magnetti Marelli Digital Dash (street version...but it still costs three arms and a leg)...and then I will be done with the bike...which, by that time, will almost be a "street legal" 998RS! No need to get radial brakes as the current Brembos are actually too strong for the street, but great for the track.
