    Red face ducati motor in the T? project ( i know)

    I was just thinking. I am just looking for info if i was to take on a project. A Tuono 1000 R bike with a ducati 1098 engine. I know buy a ducati if you want the dry cluch sound. They look like ass and the 748 has rocker problems so it seems. What kind of problem would you run into if someone was going to take on a project like this? Could motor mount be made for it to fit? Or would it be better to have a custom frame made for the engine but would still be able to take all the other parts? I am just looking for information. If i get this oil rig job in the next few months it looks like i can do the project. the only thing is that i have no idea how or who i would go to for a custom frame. I would like to see how much off it is but if i have to make a frame i bet its going to be 5G or more(shutters) Then its off to http://www.racetaylormade.com.

    I know i am going to get flamed but i don't know alot about this thats why i am asking.

    well doesn't look like anyone's going to reply, so I will - but only because you're talking about ducs!

    Don't worry about not knowing a lot about it, it's not that big a job. I mean it's not hard to make up a new frame. I'm sure you'd be able to come up with something probably better than stock anyway!

    It comes down to taking two awesome bikes, striping out the duc donk and sticking it in the ape frame (or making up a new one to fit), keeping the ape front end, rear swingarms and everthing else. Then slamming it all together and hey presto! Two fucked bikes. Couldn't think of a better project myself! Let us know how it goes.

    (Got me thinking though, mvf4 1000 donk in the ape?)

    I don't know, I think it has potential. You could stick a duck billed platapus on the rear end and a melted jelly mould on the front end then it would look like a GSXR1000.

    I'm not sure about how serious this guy is....
    But if he actually is considering this, then bless him! It was his kind of lunatics that got us out of the cave and on to our Tuonos.

    And if he manage to do this, I hope he will redirect his genious in to something useful for humanity

    Red face

    Its a project nothing more then people haveing custom bikes made like you see in sportbike or any other mag. I am not a troll and I feel that I am only getting flamed because I want to do a engine swap. I do like the sound of the dry cluch and most people that buy ducatis buy it for the sound and then others buy it for the ride. Sure i could buy a ducati 749 and have a 748 front fab to fit the front but thats not what i want. I don't know how it will work out, i have no idea how the motor will thow off the bike or if i will need to make a custom frame. It was just an idea i had and if i do get the job its a project that i would like to try none the less.

    It is not a troll post. It is no different then the customs you see in the mags. other then the fact that i want a dry cluch motor because of the sound. I was just looking for info.

    Easy fix for you - buy a Tuono and put some of these on.
