Got a new Cafe Racer Duc ;)

After 2 years of not riding a Ducati, it was time to pull the plug on this beauty! Waiting for her arrival on Monday, so the weekend-wait is killing me now
It's already modded but I plan to replace the exhaust with an 'Austin Racing Slip-on' , some new levelers and some other minor stuff. Some of the stickers have to come off to get it a cleaner look. Any modding input is always welcome
It's a 795 from 2013.

Bike looks like it's in great condition and I love the color! It reminds me of my first car. 1969 mustang couple with an in line 6 cylinder. They called that color Aztec Blue
Congrats and good luck

Just noticed you have what appears to be a charcoal canister. On my 795 it had no canister.

Back when Gulf Oil was big racing sponsor, that particular combination of light blue and orange was their team colors. Look at racing cars or pictures from the '60's, and you'll see it. So he should probably leave at least one of the "Gulf" stickers on to go with the paint job, but I agree with him that pulling off the rest of the stickers would improve the bike.

If it was my bike I would take off the stickers unless it was going to ruin the paint. I don't think they look bad just not my preference.

Yeah that was exactly my plan. The GULF and Pirelli stickers can stay but the rest has to go. Will give it a much cleaner look.
Still contemplating if I should spent 50% of the bikes cost on a single sided swing arm or not.. 10k for the bike as it is now.. single sided swing arm would be 5k and the wife will kill me.
Probably have to hold off on that one for now.

Going to change the exhaust for a custom Austin Racing one. They just sound brutal. Never heard boomtubes on a 795/796 so I don't want to waste $1,200 if the sound isn't what I expect.

Besides looks, easier tire removal and cleaning what advantage would a single sided swingarm give?

That pretty much sums it up @TRK - I could do a fat tire mod, but that's where it ends. It looks a lot better with a single arm tho.

Btw, can anyone tell me if the tires look alright to you? They look fine to me but I haven't ridden anything other than my wife in years now..

I always used to have Pirelli Diabolo's on my Monster's, so I was looking to get them as soon as the current ones will give in.

Thumbs up

It's hard to see but the rear looks a little worn and if they are 3 years old it probably would be a good idea to put some fresh rubber on. Keep your swing arm and put on some new tires
