This weight reduction cost is approaching Jenny Craig's program.



Found a clean rear shock so I'll be waiting on your install.

Update

Picked up the Powder Coated parts - kickstand, kickstand plate, U mount, and swingarm.

Installed all with new TPO Parts titanium swingarm pivot, and kickstand pivot.

Tried the 848 EVO rear shock, but on heavy bouncing was able to get it to kiss the swingarm, so that got pulled out. Going to go back to the 999 Showa.

Installed the 999s Brembo P4 34/34 front calipers - waiting on a custom set of Galfer lines to bring them to life.

Installed my new 999s front brakes tonight with a new set of custom made Galfer lines. Got everything fully back together after the swingarm powder coat, torqued all to spec, then realized the chain looks too tight to the top of the swingarm. Obviously, it's adjustable and eccentric so I must have replaced the hub in the wrong way somehow - when the brake caliper carrier is on, the eccentric only turns half way, so I took everything off the back, and tried turning it to a different position to see whether that sorted things out. Can't really figure it out tonight, so I'll sleep on it and see if something comes to me. Any suggestions are welcome... ToyTuff BSHINN

The service manual doesn't really say but I do remember reading somewhere (forums) that it can be installed wrong.

What gearing are you running and chain links?

Thumbs down

I have no idea why the pictures are small. It's only on this site from my iPad.

Page 68 of the Ducati Desmodue book.

" be careful not to rotate the eccentric hub 180 degrees. The chain will still fit but the ride height will be way off and the chain will grind against the chain slider."

Same chain as before and stock gearing. I found a site that says the hub should have the axle on the bottom side, which fits with the direction of loosen and tightening from before I took it apart. Would you mind taking a picture of the chain as it's going over the swingarm protection from a top and side angle so that I can see what it's supposed to look like, please?

You can't really see anything without removing the guard. Not sure what you are looking for.

If you mean touching the swing arm guard it does, just a little, when at rest.

Sounds like you have everything together as it should be. One of the disadvantages of the 14T front is less swingarm clearance.
