Starting Point for my 2006 Monster S2R 800 Dark

Hi All,

For my fun, and perhaps your interest, I'm going to post pictures of my starting point, with modifications as I go along. Where I can, I'll add links to what I bought, how-to-videos that I watched, and perhaps weight savings by part.

Any suggestions are welcome.

It seems that your S2R 800 already has upgraded calipers and rotors

I hadn't noticed. Nothing like posting some pictures and getting an upgrade out of it!

I guess that they're 320mm rotors now, any idea what the calipers are?

Bike's in the shop at the moment, so I can't check.

Hey All,

UPDATE on progress.

Getting il mostro back from the shop tomorrow with BST's, fresh Pirelli's, and d-moto racing aluminum valves on it. Also, the weekend is major mod time - will be doing the following with a lot of coffee, nicorette, and my trusty 9 year old assistant (son).

Arrow Full Exhaust
Driven Aluminum Bars (1-1/8") SBK version
Driven D3 grips
Aluminum Resvervoir Covers
Mirror plugs
CRG Lane Splitter Mirrors
Removal of Factory Stickers
Removal of Shock Reflectors
Removal of front signals (legal in AZ)
Driven 7/8 to 1-1/8" bar mounts with 8mm rise
Carbon Front Fender
Carbon Belt Covers
Carbon Beer Tray Cover (no chop - yet...)
Carbon Chain Guards
Competition Werkes Integrated LED Tail Light
Competition Werkes Fender Eliminator
Oberon Clutch Slave Cylinder
CNC Racing Front Sprocket Cover - Aluminum
RR relocator (prep for Corse Dynamics Air Intake Upgrade)
PCIII installation - and remap for Exhaust
CNC Racing Aluminum Rear Brake Reservoir
Magnecor ignition wires
748 Steering Damper mounted with Bitubo Mounting Kit (might be some extra work here - tbd)
Aluminum Frame Plugs
Cox Aluminum Oil Cooler Guard
Ducati Performance Barend Sliders - Aluminum
Remove Rear Passenger Footpegs
Remove Fuel Evaporation Canister
Remove Fairing

Pictures of all will be taken before and after, then posted. I also plan to create a chart for weight difference piece by piece and overall. I expect at least a 25lb weight reduction out of this round, with 11 being due to the new wheels (unsprung).

Removing/replacing the air-intake, crankcase overflow, and battery should be a next solid round weight savings. More coming after that, but that should keep me occupied and busy for the weekend.

Lot's of parts coming up for sale in the near future, including frshly powder coated marchesini black 5 spoke wheels, old corbin seat, and cat delete pipes.

Can't wait to tear into it... wish me luck.

Why not reflash the ecu.
And not a pc3

I want to have the flexibility to adjust it myself by downloading new maps as I continue to evolve the bike. Maybe unnecessary, but fun...

BIG project.
