Riding school is about controlling a motorcycle, and although you think it has nothing to do with boost, it may very well be a critical factor. Not only that, but schools tend to change the desires of a rider from getting more horsepower and acceleration (bike oriented) to actually learning to use the handling of the bike (rider oriented)....that is, after all, the hallmark of the Ducati he owns and something it already excels at.



But hey, whatever.....If he wants to add a blower/turbo to a 1098, go for it. I feel like I can come on here and comment a bit with a CV of years of CMRA racing and street riding and make a legitimate comment or two that may not perfectly fit the topic for nothing more than consideration based on my experience.

Unless, for some reason, I am not allowed to do so without your permission.

For the kind of riding you do (or lack there of) and being that you primarily drag race, you wouldn't like the turbo....you would likely run slower then you do now on spray. Unless you dumped $2k in a Hays clutch, $800 on a AMS1000 boost controller and really spent a lot of time riding/tuning it.

Turbos are not good for drag racing unless you have the WHOLE setup. But on the street or LSR they are a blast.

I just picked up a 1098s with the 70mm full exhaust that is pushing about 170hp. I have a feeling top end will be just fine.

Congratulations Sergio! Next time you go riding let me know, i will bring my duc out and you will see that the 170hp is actually about 145hp to the wheel. Depending on how hard you start riding the 1098 you will find no top end at all, that is the nature of all vtwins, strong low end and nothing on top, the rev limiter kicks in at 10500rpm but it stops making power around 10000rpm, if you are riding against any inline 4s literbike you will be passed pretty easily!

One comment; I find it odd that you have no top end at all.
A stock 1098 will top out a bit over 170 mph. (GPS verified, not indicated)
What speed is yours topping out at?

Hey Patrick on the dash it says 175 mph but on the gps it says 168 mph only, tried it many times with same results.

Not too far off. Depending on how much faster you want to go it won't be to hard to get there.

And what does riding school have to do with the OP wanting to put a blower on his bike?

Maybe he doesn't even ride it on a track so what good would buying another road race bike or road racing schools do him...?

The original question was about supercharging a Ducati, not riding schools or buying other bikes....and seriously.... 2 stroke 500s? Instead of a 200hp Ducati? Feeling fast and going fast are two different things.
Thank ZXALAN... that is exactly my point! Does Bill Gates need to do a few track days or be a car racer if one morning he wakes up and feel like buying himself a brand new Bugatti? What does track days or racing school have anything to do with people's wants? and why buy another bike? the whole reason was to use the 1098 as a project bike and have something that nobody have so far but i guess according to a few MH members i am not qualified due to the lack of track day experience?

I can't say that I blame the OP, I've been wanting to SC my 10r. It's got plenty of top end......middle is fine....maybe lacking a little on the bottom though. But I still think it would be fun......scary......but fun.

Might be a little tough on tires though.

well i just need enough power to go another 10-15 mph faster..... not trying to break the 200 mph barrier lol Everytime i pull out of a turn on 4th gear at aprox 140 mph and i go up a gear to hit the 170 mph i can see the inline 4s behind me picking up a lot more speed than the duc, and if it is a long straight for sure they can easily go around me after the duc stops pulling on top of fifth gear

funny that you mention that..... the last pirelli rosso corsa only lasted me aprox 200 miles..... the previous K3s about 800 miles and the BT016s aprox 300 miles all due to nail damage

Just do it! Do it just to say you did. Put a thread up on the Ape or Duc forum and you will probably get a little better insight and interest on the subject. This forum has the highest amount of haters per capita. AF1 Racing in New Braunfels put a 1060 big bore kit on an Aprilia RSV and supercharged it a couple years ago and it was sick, the Duc would be even more of a monster. Looked at the thread on the Aprilia forum and the termignoni exhaust actually exploded because of the really hot gases produced on the supercharged 1098. When your bike starts popping exhaust cans like a coke can you know you may have gone a little overboard. LOL.
