Can anyone recommend someone who does custom work to allow a 748 rear seat and underseat exhaust fit on my 2003 800 Monster? I had asked for advice previously and cats told me it couldn't be done. Then I saw on the ducatimonsterclub.it website it was done, and well. Unfortunately I don't understand Italian so I couldn't ask, but I though I'd post again.

You can fit the tail with a few added brackets, but there isn't enough clearence for the exhaust unless you raise the tail up substancialy. Like everything else, it's do-able, but will require some custon work. I'm not aware of any type of "kit" to make it work.

I was into Manley Cycle yesterday and they had a monster with a 748 style SBK mono rear end mounted on a chopped (right behind the seat latch) Monster Frame. Tony told me they could weld up another mounting bracket for about $150. It was swappable with the stock monster seat. I'll sell you a 748 mono tail section that I have laying around if you need one. It is in good shape if you are interested.

Strati did a 748 style exhaust install on his S4 a while back, I think it is still on his site. Look for the one off high pipe mod

It isn't a true under seat but like Norm said, it is doeable.

Let me know if you want some pictures of the adapter bracket.

We did one with rose joints so the back end was adjustable
the hard part is making the pipework look nice. We made a big hole thru the swinging arm to take the pipes inside not out side will try and find some pictures?
