After my 1098s I purchased two EBRs for track work . Punched a hole out of the cases with both bikes, then purchased the 1299 , just a little tentative how long the twins last when they get hammered. Ive only ever had twins and they seem to go out with a bang ! Whereas the i4's just tend to get tired ?

That's about 1000 laps a year , rebuild every 8K at $6K is about $6.00 per lap. $3.00 lap for rear tires.
Thats enough , dont like looking at it this way !
This is a great breakdown. So I can run 5,000 miles on the engine before a rebuild. $6k in all fairness isn't that bad if you can get 3 years of track out of it. (I ride track a lot)

It absolutely does have to do with how you are treating the engine. I typically shift before I hit limiter. Only time I run it to redline is if I forget or am lazy.

I can justify $2,000 a year for engine wear, hell that's close to what the tire budget is

My 1199 has 15k miles now, the last few were at the track. That thing has never been banied. 2000 of those miles are probably track, 3000 are very spirited mountain riding.

This winter, i will be doing the full service, i donít expect anything to be off (valve clearances)
Friend is a ducati tech and he says those superquadros are rock solid
When you say full service do you mean the Desmo, or are you talking about replacing pistons, valves, bearings?

These are wonderful parts at an excellent price; however, do not forget to consider the labour costs and the costs of other things (like gaskets), which will add up quickly.

Unless you want the opportunity to build a special bike, it's cheaper to just replace the engine with a salvage. There are plenty of bikes that have been written off for cosmetic damage or other damage that does not affect the engine. I just replaced my 1199 engine with one from a road bike that only had 1,500 miles on it; cost $2,500 plus labour.

That all said, if I hadn't just replaced the engine, this would be a very enticing opportunity.

Someone out there will benefit.

All the best with the knee. A bit of push bike work will strengthen it afterwards.
