Ducati want £2700 for CF seat unit on a 1098R....makes Buell seem positively reasonable......however, the Ducati part is at least painted....
Yeah - and that's a nuts price too, but I suspect you get something slightly more than a straight replacment - but who knows. Maybe it is targeted at real racers who might know the difference - or at ripping money out of the wallets of the bar-stool racers with too much cash hanging around. Either way, fair play! I see that the Buell CF did reached £330, but not the reserve. Seems a hell of a lot to me when equally brand new tail section but in unflash plastic never hit £100. I suppose the price of 'flash' is cash. Each to his own, as long as it not mine!
Got yer rearsets on yet Doug?
Never quite managed it. Got as far as having them on, but needed so sort some odds and sods (get a new linkage rod made, etc.) and as I spent indolent weeks playing with them (std pegs needed hours to get off - been welded into place with a small thermo-nuclear device, or something...) it became time to ride the bike again, not play with it. So took the whole lot off, and they have remained in the 'project' box ever since. Shame really, but I had enough time with them not riding it to realise you were right - they'd cripple me! Still, the project will be resurected sometime, as I would like to see what it is like to ride like a monkey at some point - could be kinda interesting if I make it out of the garage without my knees snapping! Age and contortion are not the best of friends, so we'll see.
