Well I figured I would put a little more effort into the forum and share my experience with getting my Monster back up to par. I probably should have started sooner, but better late than never. The Ducati of my dreams; a 2007 Monster S4RS Testatretta, presented itself to me at a deal I couldn't pass up. It was a little dirty and neglected with a past history as a stolen motorcycle. I don't mind the black eye on the title with the odometer discrepency because I plan to keep this one a long time. I am not new to motorcycles, but I am new to Ducati's. And I will be honest and admit that all of my previous motorcycle expertise was on Japanese motorcycles. I do like getting my hands dirty and would rather work on my motorcycle before I give a kidney to the stealership. Currently I have another motorcycle; a 1980 XS650(706), that I spent a little over a year building it into a cafe racer. So I guess you can say I am not afraid to customize and create my own fabrications. I guess I have a way of thinking outside of the box when it comes to my motorcycle builds. I hope you will enjoy following my thread and maybe help me along the way.

My rear ohlin shock was in bad shape and I found an Ohlin specialist I would highly recommend to anyone else in need of professional service. I actually found him watching YouTube. He has a channel called “The Ohlin Guy” The Ohlins Guy and his business page is at • - BRENNER SHOCKS. Pretty cool getting to chat with him and read his history as an old race guy. This was the one job I wasn’t willing to tackle or have all the equipment at my disposal anyways. It literally took him a day to turn it around and ship it back to me. Even the motorcycle mechanics here in Hawaii said I should ship it to a reliable service because it would take them forever to get all the parts from ohlins in Sweden. I can’t wait to slap this thing back on the bike so I can get it off the lift.

Waiting on parts and at a work stoppage. Surprisingly it only took two days for my tires to be shipped from J&P cycle, but all the other stuff I need before I start another task is holding me up.
