10) Things Get REALLY Outta Control!

I'd decided that if I was going to go to the trouble of new engine cases and gearbox, then I should go all out. The objective was to make the bike 'mint'! And go as good as it looks! It had 82rwhp before so, with some careful tuning, 95+ might potentially be achievable. 

And so, armed with only a laptop and my trusty credit card I went completely nuts. Most of the stuff I bought new and was soon winging its' way to NZ from the 4 corners of the globe. I figured I'd go "OMG What have I done???" when I got my credit card bill!

I think I mentioned I'd already got, courtesy of Muzza Bikes:
• New crank cases with close ratio gearbox (this would requite a change to the later master & slave cylinder set-up). The original balanced crankshaft, alternator and cover retained
• Marchesini 5 Spoke front wheel
• Keihin 41mm FCR flat-slide carbs (split) with Malossi short manifolds
• 45mm high rise spaghetti exhaust with carbon (Akrapovic?) mufflers, which I had polished
• Ported and polished heads
Muzza also sourced for me: 
• Late model Brembo Rotors with cast iron discs
• ‘95 Upper Triple Clamp in his own brushed stainless finish.
And from Muzza's personal Supersport, which he had converted to a Superbike front end  
• '95 900sSupersport forks with Race-tech valves 
• Muzza Bikes specially modified speedo drive =)
• Brembo Gold calipers 

On top of all that, I also bought (or had made): 
MBP valve collets for my heads, and
• New Ducati Performance cams, plus
900SSie adjustable pulleys
 K&N Pod Filters
 '02 Supersport lower triple clamp and axle
• Braided brake lines lines (front and rear)
• New (Gold-line) brake and clutch master cylinder
• Mad Duc clutch cover 
• Clutch case cut outs (by Rob Selby ex Britten)
• Barnett aluminium clutch basket 
• Motorize (Germany) aluminium clutch plates 
• Rizoma billet clutch pressure plate
• Ducati 400SS flywheel (machined and lightened by Rob Selby) 
• TPO stainless steel engine bolts
• Ignitech computer adjustable ignition 
• Ducati Monster S4R oil cooler with S2R braided lines
CNC milled rearsets 
Shorai lightweight battery
LED Indicators
Ilmberger (Germany) Carbon Hugger
Ilmberger (Germany) Carbon 888SP2 front mudguard
Carbonworld (Germany) Vented Sprocket Cover
Billet bar ends

I still had to source:
- Coils
- Plug leads
- A Re-covered seat and
- A Ducati speedo

And this is what some of those bits and pieces looked like.
