welcome to 749 ownership.

Hugger, open clutch cover ASAP.

Silcone spray for all the bolt heads, brake banjo fittings etc or they will just go white and furry at the first sign of road salt.

The cat is located near right hand pipe (eg the long one) You will need the right pipe to get rid of the cat. As for the chip these are one shot deals so if you get a secondhand system the chip will be no good if it has been used. I have been told that the chip can only be fitted by the dealers and some people use it and others run just the standard chip. I have put the racing ECU on and don't see a big diffrence. Standard chip with power commander is the way to go i my eyes with a bit of Dyno time to check every thing is working ok. As for the carbon the world is a big place. Try carbontech i think.

The ducati gel seat is a good investment for 73.00 looks like standard fits like standard but 100% improvement in comfort especially when riding in jeans,

if you want to down the more sporty route, the neoprene seat they do is the nuts. i think its abunt 100 quid. designed for maximum grip and feel not comfort.

and not too sure about paying 73 quid for a bit more comfort, and potentially spending months in hospital having skin grafts.

full leathers at all times.

Er...there is a cat in the front pipe for the front cylinder, there is also a cat in the back box for the rear cylinder!

get a proper balanced 54mm or 57mm system!

Good luck with the bike. I also have an '05 749s and love it to bits. Extras added so far:

DP Carbon Hugger
White painted front mudguard with Corse logo
White front numberboard
Neoprene Seat
JHP Open Clutch cover and pressure plate
DP Heatshield

I wanted Termis but I believe they've only just become available for the '05 bikes so I'll wait until next Spring.

Cheers
Mike

If you think about it you couldnt just clean one of the cylinders outlet gases!

Thats also why the std back box is so heavy!
