Hey guys looking to buy a 2006 s2r 800/1000-(seller isn't sure what it is)and I think there may be discrepancies with VIN and engine #. I did a search and found a vin cheat sheet but still have questions. Please help.

Engine#
RAA5007036

Well, either way, I ended up buying the bike, Still don't know what I really have. VIN says it's a 1000, under-seat cowl says it's an 800. If anyone could help with the engine decode that would be awesome! Or do I have to take the clutch cover off and see if it's wet or dry? Here she is:

Why is the horizontal exhaust pipe disconnected?

Not sure. Where do you mean...near the head? it's an optical illusion. It seems like all the clamps at exhaust connections are missing. That spot I think your looking at is just black from the exhaust.

Yes, that’s exactly the spot I’m referencing. Quite the illusion!!

Gotcha, but how do I know if it's wet or dry? By sounds or do I need to pop off the clutch cover?
Sound easily dictates, the dry clutch rattle is distinct. Also, by the looks of your clutch cover it’s one piece which would indicate to me a wet clutch. The dry version has an easily detached surface cover to access the plates and basket.

Note the extra bolts to secure the clutch cover in this after market piece. The same bolt holes would be in your stock cover if it were a dry set up.

Note also the use of a different, low-effort at the lever, clutch design for the 800.

From what I can see it's an 800 because it only has one spark plug per cylinder.
1000 are DS engine (Dual Spark).
Good info. Thanks, I did not know that about the plugs. However, I found this statement on a website saying there is an 800ss

"Two years ago Ducati brought out the S2R, with the 800SS dual-spark engine, quality suspension and both pipes on the right for a bad-ass custom look. Now, for 2006 it has upgraded the format with the biggest and strongest development of the air-cooled SS engine yet, the 992cc Multistrada 1000DS engine. "
