Re: tire clearance using arrow full sys (with pics)

I just changed mine a couple of weeks ago. If you have previously removed your exhaust and put it back on chances are the disc gaskets are no longer working properly and you may need to replace them....

Re: which Ohlins rear for S2R?

You won't be disappointed. The Ohlins rear makes a huge difference (once it is set up properly).

Re: CC sprocket cover in titanium grey

silentbob

Be prepared to do some filing. I have the same one and the chain immediately started cutting into it. I also had to machine some spacers for it. (the clutch cover was OK though)

Re: Arrow system on S4R

Make sure you replace the stock header gaskets as well. I don't mean the flat plate ones on the heads but "V" shaped disc ones that seal between your existing header pipes and the new Arrow header....

Re: Blue S4r - i want to see yours !

Sorry buddy, no luck. The only one I can find is in Laval, and I think it's the same one you were looking at. I will keep my eyes open and let you know what I find.

Re: Blue S4r - i want to see yours !

I just called both dealers and they have none in stock. They tell me DNA has only two black S4R's left in stock.

I can check the local bike trader for some used ones if you want.

Re: Blue S4r - i want to see yours !

I was in Montreal back in 2004 for the GP and there were Ducati's everywhere.

I can...

Re: Blue S4r - i want to see yours !

I have not ridden the S4Rs so I can't offer any advice. I know the S4Rs has more power but
I still would not trade my S4R for the "RS". I think the S4R still has that "old school" look that I like...

Re: For All Arrow Owners: Arrow Hi Mount Exhausts

Re: Formula 1 race in Indy

I don't want to piss anyone off but I was wondering, why do they have the US GP at Indy anyway. I am no F1 expert but it just seems to me that there are better tracks in the US to host the F1 event....

Re: UPDATED...HELP...Ohlins install (Done w/ Pics)

Believe it or not, it was a lot more stable than it looks.
I put the bike in first gear so the jack would not slip.
Maybe not the best choice but I couldn't wait for the dealer to do it.

Re: UPDATED...HELP...Ohlins install (Done w/ Pics)

That is where the instructions said to mount the canister but I am not crazy about it.

Once I get rid of my air box and switch to the pod filters I am going to mount the canister under the tank.
