Hey, if you want to do it I'll install it for you, but don't say I didn't warn you.

Along the lines of a higher top speed, that's also achievable without the cost and complexity of adding an SC. If you're interested we can discuss it more in depth when you come by for your helmet.
Thanks again Patrick.... if it can be done without having to install the SC i would love to give it a try! Will discuss the details in person when i pick up the helmet this week!

just 168mph? Where are you riding your bike anywhere CLOSE to that fast? I hope to not a public road, and I can think of only 1 racetrack within a reasonable distance where you might be able to even get close to the 168 of your bike (and nowhere near the 184 of any other).

All I'm really trying to say is that, unless you're drag racing (which you shouldn't be doing on a ducati) or doing something insanely stupid..........a blower bike is more of a extension than additional fun.

Yea, I don't think the government wants you to exceed the speed limit even though the general public is just fine with it

You think the general public is just fine with people attempting to exceed 168mph? I want to live amongst your general public. They're way cooler than the one the rest of us have to deal with.

there is a difference between going at a speed of 168+mph on a public hwy during rush hour vs an open road with hardly any traffic/houses around it

i seriously do not think that people that chose to purchase sport bikes did it with the intention to ride at speed limit 100% of the times, at least i didnt!

I say go for it. I'd almost garantee that you would have the only 1098 with a supercharger in Texas

will talk to Patrick this week and see other options first. It would be great to have it but then since the company that makes the kit is from Sweden, any type of technical support will be a pin in the @ss.

Thats a cool concept and would be awesome, but I think the wrong bike, do it on a busa or gixxer 1k, reliability factor alone, these engines can handle boost better, way better, duc engines are hella expensive, I have helped and been involved with stage 3 Velocity busas that put down BIG horsepower, I have seen them run low 7,s and 190+, they are monsters were talking 550+ hp

There's speeding and then there's trying to hit 170.

from what i can see from their track video, the power delivery looks pretty safe but i dont know if the rider was taking it easy or hard on the throttle.

Differing financial situations can provide a wide spectrum of perspectives on how special a purchased item is. What would be a major investment for you may not be more than an afterthought of expended pocket change to another.
