Unfortunately, I'm the slow deliberate type when it comes to mods, so this upcoming Chicago winter will be perfect to ponder what I should do to my stock M800S. Anyway, I was thinking:
#1 - chop the tail
#2 - high pipe exhausts (still haven't decided which one)
#3 - new wheels
#4 - some smaller detail stuff.

My question: Is there anyone out there with non-stock wheels? Any opinions on brand quality/looks/durability/handling versus the stocks? I'm hoping to put on a 170 on the rear next year as well and was looking for something distinctive for my bike that added a handling/performance boost as well. Thanks!

marvic piumas are the best deal out there i think. very light, very strong, and relatively innexpensive for aftermarket rims. yes, i'm biased (i own a set).

If you're lookin' to spend a bundle on mods you picked the right one. The prices on aftermarket wheels is simply absurd. I like the stock wheels on our M800. Frame sliders, an LED tail light, and some high mount slip-ons is enough for me.......Well, maybe a PC III, open air box, belly pan, and some other things too......Ah, forget it. Get anything you want. ::)

we got Marchesini 5-spoke mag wheels from motowheels for karen's M750.
it is far and away the best thing we have done to it.
she says that if she ever got a different monster, should would do wheels, pipes for sound and thats it.
sometimes you can find used ones...there are some in the dml classifieds, also try cowin-tech.com/ducati

I am also considering some new wheels. Anybody running carbon? Also what kind of price can I expect to get for my s4 stock wheels?

MonsterHooligan, just out of curiosity, what high pipes are those on Karen's bike? How do they sound in comparison to others?
