Front tire looks to be about 30 psi. Might want to put a little more air in there and its low on oil.

Nice bike.

What's the deal with open clutches? Is there performance gains or is it just a style thing?

Mostly style, but it does cool quicker, doesnt dirty your oil with the clutch dust, and much much easier to change plates etc

Cool. Thanks for the insight. The only bikes I ever see this done to are monsters though. Any reason for that?

Probably just an artefact of the Monster being the most prevalent bike of the Ducati line-up. I've seen just as many open/ventilated covers on Mutistrada 1x00's, SS 900's and 9xx/109x Superbikes.

most ducatis have the dry clutch except for a limited number of models, which are normally the lower cc bikes

I guess I'm just that good It looks like it has about an inch and a half of slack though.





What is the spec for chain slack on your bike by the way? I've never heard of a final drive having more than half an inch (unless it's extended swingarm stuff)

I also forgot to mention, it looks AWESOME

Looks sick, bet it sounds even sicker, especially with the clutch chatter. I wonder how much fun it would be with dirt bars on it?
