well, the latest info is:

There are NO kits for the later engines!!!

so, I am on the phone to Peter at D/UK to try to get help.....


otherwise, it looks like we will either:

have to run at a disadvantage to the other bikes

or

withdraw from the comp...

or

has anyone got an early engine?


mind you, having stripped this one down, and having got various work under way - replacing rockers etc, this is going to be a very expensive exercise!

Well it seems some confusion reigns over the original chassis number over at Ducati and it now transpires that my bike is indeed a 98 on a 99 plate - thats better. I knew full well it wasn't the early engine.
Tomorrow is another day so we'll have to wait and see what happens.
Other than that i'll be running a 583 and be done with it
