haha nice. good luck getting help with that attitude. theres an old saying that goes "you catch more bees with honey than you do "

but i never really got that saying. why the fukk would anyone want to catch those stinging bastards anyway?

try a cycle salvage place. theres one off i10 east and another in pasadena. or just ask around at motorcycle shops. lots of them have various body parts from wrecked bikes/rebuilds and what not.

good luck.

Out of curiosity, why a 748? What does a 748 have that a monster doesn't?

looks like some of you guys are on the e-rag this morning


I think the best answer was given by RR785 with reference to www.ducatimonsterforum.org

There you will most likely find the best help. If not let me know, I have a friend who is into the Monsters, maybe he can help.

you'll need to get the exact measurements of the two, if they are the same you can do a direct swap and then adjust the height of the forks in the trees to match. If not new triple trees will have to be machined. Why not just revalve and adjust the suspension and springs to your weight and riding style?

wow,thanks a lot man that was actually one the most helpful and intelligent responses i received to a serious question. Apparently the pencil dics that responded earlier have engulfed there senses of humor with their super egos and super bikes. Nice to see atleast you and Vmaxgirl are not living up to the motohouston snobbish reputation.Thanks again.

Well from what i can tell the 748 has adjustable forks and has dual brembo rotors for stoppage as my 750 has none of these and is not even set up for it. And it was a suggestion from a friend who also rides and i was taking it into consideration and wanting to get a little more info and feed back from some other fellow riders. But apparently some folks on here have nothing better to do than be an from a key board.
