Re: Orders from Italy - how long did you wait?

I waited about 8 months to get my D.O.C. card and patch, and that was just a little envelope.

I waited just over 3 months for my DP CF tank. It probably doesn't help that they're shipped by sea instead of air either.

Re: Orders from Italy - how long did you wait?

I still have parts on order from 6 months ago. Believe me it is hard for us dealers also. Just last thursday I had to tell someone their part was still on back order and they would not have it for the weekend. I checked online to make sure. Then it shows up the next day!!!! So i call and tell him it is in, while thinking to myself this guy must think I am the biggest lyer and never bothered to check. I did have to wait 6 months for a crank for my Suzuki tl1000 one year but I knew it would be a while as I had a date to look at.

It's not like Ducati sits on the stuff and just doesn't send it out. Many times they have to get it from their suppliers and are held hostage by their production schedules.

Re: Orders from Italy - how long did you wait?

If DP parts shipped within a week or two, wouldn't that mean that every single person who ever dinged their tank (and had insurance cover it) woudl be rocking a CF tank right now due to the price similarity?

Aftermarket: RoadRacing modified under-engine exhaust, revalved 996 forks, ProCutting open clutch, CC triple and pressure plate, 999 clipons, BMC filter, CRG-LS mirrors, PC3, Rizoma rearsets, heated grips, +2 teeth in rear gearing, Veypor VR2 computer, MBP collets, Yoyodyne slave, Galfer waves front and rear, misc CF (mostly faded). After so much work, why is it that I still can&#039;t help but consider buying other bikes?
