I took my camera for a ride Sunday and spent most of the day riding around the lakes and taking some new photos of my Monster...

Where did you get that seat cowl? I have one just like it that still has the rack on top. I use it when carring a tail pack. I heard it was made in Italy, but yours is the only other one I have seen.

The bike looks great.

No internal engine mods! I'm on the third set of pistons, but there semi stock 904cc replacements from FBF. Wastegate is set at 7 psi (which has a +/- of 2 psi depending on the acceleration curve). I ride the bike a lot, so I try to keep it on the reliable side.
[*] View Charts: Power Run Speed Run
[*]Horsepower (at Rear Wheel): 112.1 Hp @ 8,300 RPM's
[*]Torque (at Rear Wheel): 74.8 ft-lbs. @ 7,600 RPM's
[*]Top Speed: 143.5 MPH
[*]Tested By: ECS Dyno (Mesa, AZ)
[*]Stock: 76 Hp/51 ft-lb.

The turbo can produce up to 28 psi, but the heat increase makes it unusable. I've set mine up to 11psi for a couple of drag race events and at a bike shows once. Unofficially it registered a 122Hp in a carnival style "Horse Power Shootout" at the Thunder Valley Rally 2005 in Camp Verde.

Now if you just want to go fast on the track and set big numbers, I have havea friend, Wayne Patterson, how has a turbocharge 900SS thats had the internal engine almost completely rebuilt (special coned pistons, crank, rockers, rods, etc.).
[*]He runs 19psi and gets 203hp. Click Here
[*]One of his early dyno sheets Click Here
[*]One of his early time sheets Click Here
Wayne son, Todd, sets a 8.98 sec 1/4 mile pass at 261.80kph on the turbocharged Ducati 900ss at Kwinnana Motorplex back in August.

There made by RoadRacing in Italy. http://www.RoadRacing.it/

I ordered my through Fast by Ferracci and removed the rack. I have plans to remount a small platform on top of it with a solar charger panel on it. I got the solar trickle charge from Fry's Electronics and I'm just looking to find someone to machine up an aluminum mount from my drawlings now.

Nice!! I love the gauge clusters...where did you get them?
It a hand made copy of a cluster on a custom chopper I saw at the "2005 LA Canendar Show" in Long Beach. I just modified the design to work with the Ducati gauges. There's used 2.25" gauges and mine is 3.5"gauges. Plus I had to add in the boost gauge into the mix.

It's a one off, overly complicated, design to fix a kickstand issue. I need the kickstand long, with a bigger end plate. My buddy Mark was willing to help carve the aluminum and do the welding, so we made it. The foot was cut out from block of 3x3x1" 6160 and welded into the stock kickstand.
