Some are worse than others because they are welded 'by hand' - by hand infers human input and human input infers variability....some are worse than others.

Sorry for being pedantic

I take it they have never heard of a grinder Its not rocket science

I think that Ducati believe that the rough welding would give the bike that - homologation special - look.
Interestingly - a few months back Ducati ran a poll on their website to guage opinion on tank size/shape.
One of the options was a tank of a similar shape to the 749R...I guess without the amateur welding though.

I understand there is a lot of carbon to plastic changes from 04 to 05. But which parts to be specific? Eventually I may want to replace them... Thanks in advance!

On the 04 R the whole fairing is carbon , only the seat is plastic , I would imagine you would be around 2k to get an 04 fairing (maybe a bit more) to create the 05 look you would need an 05 999R upper with no slots mated to some 04 749R lowers so the logo is correct , good luck

Do the carbon nosecone mounts off the headlamp get replaced with plastic on the 05?

They cost 400 per side, so there's 800 plus around 950 for the nosecone, let alone how much the sides cost....

I would imagine they are cast items as per the standard and S models

400 each for the carbon ones ? that sounds steep even for Ducati
