I have Redline clip-ons, CRG mirror, cut open air box, BMC airfilter, PC2 (still need custom map), RoadRacing under swingarm exhaust, Roadracing polished alloy air scoops & seat cover, DPM Chrome plastic tail, clear mini turn sognals, DPM carbon lower air scoops, Rizoma clock, DPM alloy clutch/brake levers, carbon bar-ends, side stand by pass, both emmissions pods removed, K&N crank breather, EVO slave, Barnett clutch, red DPM pressure plate, TPO ignition wires, DPM rearsets, Rizoma clutch cover, DPM CNC reservoirs caps, and just ordered Matris steering damper. ...... ...
now I am broke

but still need:
JMC alloy swingarm (since 01 Cromo's got steel arms)
RaceTech tune forks
Carbon Side Panels
RoadRacing lower cowling
DPM Carbon Headlight bucket
DPM carbon ignition mount
Barnett Alloy Clutch Basket
Ohlin rear shock
DL oil temp guage!

I don't think it ever stops. I have had and have many bikes but the Duc is the only one I am addicted to "customizing"

Anything else I need? Please help.

I am not sure if I will like a lightened freewheel.
Cromo came stock with SS lines & carbon hugger.
Engine mods are not worth the $$$ per HP - besides Monsters will never be powerhouses/speedkings.
No need or desire for slipper clutch.
Stock wheels/calipers are fine.

BST! BST! BST! BST! BST! BST! BST!

Ya, I'm a loser, but I really want them someday!

And I agree, power isn't what you should be chasing, HANDLING is what Ducati is all about!

i'll second (third?) the comment about rims. it's amazing what a difference they make, especially compared to the stock 3spoke anchors on the 2valve'd m's.

Mags would be nice but my logic is:

$2000+ for mags - might as well spend $3000+ for carbons
If I am going to spend that much, I should put the carbons on my lightest big HP bike, CBR900 since my GSXR7/11 has Marvic Mags.

I need to win the lottery. If I win this week, BST for everyone that has replied here!!

Rims and radial brake pump for stopping is most excellent.

FastKatanaBoy -
Do you have a pic of your Monster? I'd like to see.
Yeah... I second that. Actually, I would like to see a pic of all your girls together....

Although, the naked ones always catch my eye.

Sorry, what were we talking about? oh yeah.. the bikes.

I just posted some pics in the members bikes area. Will post a few more current ones of the Cromo when I get home.

What do you guys think of the Red GSXR7/11??
It is a BEAST!! has almost as much character as my Monster!
The flatslides make great noise! As sweet as the Monster's dry clutch.
