I assume the crap aftermarket rear indicators are because someone kicked them getting on and off the bike. Looks like Aprillia RSV pattern front discs instead of the Ducati front discs patters (Holes or snowflakes)

Not to worry Pete as a coffee with a Suzuki Katana is welcome and as for that red thing, No Thanks.

The indicators are on the replacement list. Didn't fry the tackle as I thought but the boots were definitely warm. Nice ride and about as comfortable as a Katana too.

Has it still got an OEM clutch slave on it? Been trying to convince Rob that he needs to put an aftermarket one on his given that the stocker is fucked and the aftermarket ones live longer.

Oh, and if you want a set of the Brembo cast iron full floating discs for it, I've got a set I'm not going to use.

Yep. Rattles like a bastard per usual as well. Thanks for the offer on the brakes I think as much as I use it the ones on it will suit fine. After giving the battery a full charge actually started and idled quite well for a Ducati, that was a surprise. Must admit though doesn't have the same shove as the 900SS or the 851. Did Rob finally sort his clutch out? Seeing him Sunday so must find out how he's been getting on.

Dunno if he's sorted his clutch, he's now chasing some rough running issue - I suspect it's split the length of submersible hose in the tank, or shat the pump/filter.
