Newbie with the most mods??

Hey all, newbie to this forum.
So, I've gone kinda nuts in the mods department, and before anyone says "you could have bought an R" or "why didn't you just get the 1299"
When I bought my 899 the 1299 hadn't been released, I rode the 1199 a few times and was initially going to buy that, until I tried the 899. I much preferred the power delivery and like how it was more user friendly for the street....just my preference.
Here's the list of mods I've done so far...
Ducati Alarm
Comfort Seat
Evo Tech Tail Tidy
Ducati Performance LED turn signals
C&C Clutch slave cylinder
Duca Bike Triple Clamp
Front & rear Sliders
Duca Bike Rear Sets
Light weight Rear sprocket
EK3D chain
Light weight Front sprocket
MWR High efficiency air filter
DP Bar end sliders
DP Clutch & Brake reservoirs
C&C Frame plugs
Cox Racing Radiator guard
Magnesium clutch cover
Duca Bike Clear clutch cover
Ohlins TTX GP rear shock
Ohlins NIX30 fork cartridges
Duca Bike Flat-Rate rear shock linkage kit
Yoyodyne Slipper Clutch
Shorai Lithium Battery
R&G Engine Sliders
DP oil filler cap
Ducati Pugi Hi-tech grips
Ducat-Bike EVO 3 Pro leavers
Ohlins steering damper
Termi slip on Exhaust
MotoCorsa Titanium headers
Tuneboy ECU tune with launch control, cruise control and auto down blip

Carbon Fiber parts:-
 Rear shock guard
 Heel Guards
 Front fender
 Rear fender & Chain guard
 Key guard
 Carbon fluid reservoir brackets
 Carbon tank pad
 Carbon battery cover
 Carbon wire cover
 Carbon engine covers
 Swing arm covers
 Mirrors
 Air tube (dash)
 Electronics holder
 Speedometer instrumentation cover
 Windscreen
 Monocoque carbon tail
 Oversized 25-liter carbon tank
 Lower side fairings
 Kick stand
 RotoBox CF Wheels

I've still go a couple of things to fit, Limited edition Brembo black cast 4M calipers & BrakeTech AXIS Iron Race Series Rotors.

My end game is to complete the side & nose fairings with carbon, and all fairing bolts will be C&C red aluminum and fairing decals in Ducati red same as the tank.....a few more months and I should be done......then onto the next project













Thanks from Phl and Twistedracer

Jeez dude. That is a lot of stuff! Well done. Why did you go for the oversize tank? I log my fuel consumption on fuelly.com, there are a couple of 899's there and I must say their fuel economy is impressive. With that oversize tank you can probably do over 400km.
Where do you find space to stack all the old stuff... Lol.

Thanks mate. I went for the larger tank mainly to give me more to hold onto, I find the Pani to be a thin bike, feels better with more beef.
You're probably right, might get around 400km depending how I'm riding....haven't run it that low yet. With the old tank I'd only get about 150km on track days, so less refuels there now to.

Yeah....I've got basically another bike besides the engine at home , thinking of hanging it on the wall in the pattern of a bike....like a 2D display

The display idea is a good one.
