My new Base with mods

Hi all,

My MY13 arrived yesterday, have hardly ridden it, busy opening up all my boxes of bits and pieces.

So far:

- broke up the black wheels with Rimstickers tape and some stickers I found on ebay

- liked the DUCATI CORSE sticker so grabbed those from the same ebay.it shop everyone is using

- Ilmberger carbon where I could - instrument surrounds, intakes, mudguard, heel guards - Ilmberger is seriously good stuff, fit was absolutely spot on

- DP carbon elsewhere - just the shock guard and clutch cover

- DP fender eliminator - missing a few screws in the pack but my radio control helicopter hobby means I have heaps of spare M2 screws lying around, time consuming fit but gives a really nice OEM look

- DP race seat is a surprising improvement in comfort over the OEM, I was expecting more grip but it is also softer

- I installed the Rizoma pegs that I saw someone else on the forum use and they are a significantly grippier peg than OEM

Just waiting on my Lux indicators and some clear wrap.

Here it is before and after: (EDIT photos sharpened up).

Any chance of a pic of your instrument surrounds and intakes? I already have the Ilmberger ignition surround.

Cheers,

Al.

nice. I am always amazed what the rim stripes can do.

i have the tankslapper kit, too, but some elemets will already need to be changed. okay, it's almost 5500 miles now...

enjoy the bike!

You got a lot done in a day! Your bike looks great, nice job! You'll like the LED block offs, at first I was a little "meh" about it, but now I wouldn't go back.

Im normally NOT a fan of "stepping up" an item to look like something its not, (in this case a base to an R) However, with that said... I like the Rim Strpping and the Corse decals. But in person, do they look factory installed or can you clear see they are added? I do like the look of this bike, if anyone can provide a link or ebay seller name who sells these in QUALITY id like to take a look. Also how hard is it to stripe the wheels and keep them straight without looking like shit. From your low quality pictures, This all looks spot on and factory OEM. Does it look that good in person?
