General Discussion / MH900 Current US Market?
« on: May 02, 2017, 12:52:34 PM »
Getting ready to officially post up my MH on Cycletrader in the coming week or so. Currently at the dealer getting all the fluids changed out and a general check up to make sure she's all set for sale. Mileage is 4,204.  I have the stand, plaque and t-shirt.  It will be in almost 100% stock form, the  only thing that won't be OE but will come with the bike are the OE Tires and OE tank. I recently replaced the cheap plastic fuel line disconnects with nice metal connections. It has brand new tires and the California Cycleworks tank/battery relocation. There is some minor "bubbling" of the paint on the engine cover (stator side) but no flaking. The top triple has a few blemishes from age. A little "yellowing" of the fins on the heads. No leaks. I don't think I am missing any critical details overall in very good condition for a bike that is 16 years old with 4K miles.

Does anyone have a thought on the current US Market value? I'm not irrational/delusional and know that it is not a $20K bike. I was thinking $15-16K would get it sold. Feedback would be appreciated.

Frame and Suspension / Wheel swap/conversion
« on: June 07, 2014, 10:38:07 AM »
On a previous post another member, Cloner posted this regarding wheels that will fit the MH900e:

 ...."The MHe hub is also used on 916, 748, 996, 998, 848, Monster S4RS, Monster S2RS, Hypermotard, Multistrada, and probably others..." 

I am interested in doing a swap like this and am even considering switching over to a spoked wheel like Alipna or Kineo.

Has anyone done a wheel swap that was pretty straight forward?  What all does it entail by way of Spacers, Rotors, Brakes, etc?

Guidance would be appreciated!    :)

Body / Raw Carbon Dream Kits for Sale on Ebay - My Experiences
« on: April 28, 2014, 01:16:27 PM »
Hey guys/gals.  Just wanted to post a heads up regarding the "Raw" Carbon Dream Kits that pop up on ebay.  I made a purchase late last year.  The kit comes as described in the auctions:  Raw, Scratched, Unfinished and somewhat flawed.  So no surprise when mine arrived.  It did have some white pen markings with circles drawn around the larger flaws and the letter "D" written in a few places.  This led me to wonder, are these kits that were made very early in the process while they were still working out the kinks and had too many flaws to make it worth the time to repair and finish?  One has to wonder?  It would certainly be a question worth asking the seller before bidding in the future.  In the area I live, there are no shops that I felt comfortable with to repair/finish Carbon Fiber so I sent the kit out to California.  Upon evaluation, he felt that after a number of coats of epoxy he would have it to a satisfactory state.  He is still working on the project but feels it is coming along nicely.  He did question the amount and significance of the flaws, posing the same query as to why these were never actually finished by Carbon Dream.  He thought it was likely a Quality Control issue.  Of course the other issue is the lack of Carbon Dream Decals.  I thought these would be easier to come by, but no dice.  This painter has the ability to fabricate decals and suspects that he will be painting on the silver and red accents. Regardless it sounds like he will be finished with the Kit in another 2 weeks.  Once I receive it, I will be sure to post pictures here and my thoughts on the end product.   Quick Disclaimer:  I am not suggesting that the seller is misrepresenting the product.  I just want to make sure any potential purchasers have a true understanding of the road ahead to reach a product that rivals the factory finished Carbon Dream Kit.

Body / For Original Carbon Dream Owners - Detailed Question -
« on: March 05, 2014, 04:09:17 PM »
Hey Guys,

I picked up a set of Carbon Dream Fairings from DucatiParts.it on ebay a while back.  They periodically put a set up of "raw" unfinished product on ebay.  When it arrived, it was pretty much as described, a few scratches definitely a RAW finish.  I was going to have them prepped and sanded locally but after looking at the body pieces and all the work needed, I felt like I really needed someone with good Carbon Fiber experience to fix.  Long story short, I found some guys out in California who I feel will be able to meet my standards.  The issue is the Decals, they will be able to fabricate replicas, but it is very hard to see the coloring of the lettering in images.  Can someone please confirm the coloring for me?  If you are willing and able, measurements would be awesome as well. (Height/width of lettering, spacing between characters, etc)

Tail section:
"Ducati" color?
"Performance" color?
"by Carbon Dream" color?

Tank/Nose:
"Ducati" color?
"Performance" color

there was another gentleman who offered to help out on the decals, but since the place I am working with is a "one-stop" shop, I won't be able to utilize the other forum member (sorry Lordmoonpie, I do appreciate your willingness to help!).

If anyone can provide the details of the color combo from an Official Carbon Dream Kit, it would be greatly appreciated!!  Measurements would simply be a bonus.

Thanks!

Body / Carbon Dream Decal Questions
« on: October 28, 2013, 08:35:23 PM »
Hey guys,
Does anyone out there know how or where to obtain the decals for the Carbon Dream Kits?  I know you can order most of the decals for the stock farings, but those differ from the Carbon Dream version.  I know it's a long shot, but figured it wouldn't hurt to ask. 

Thanks!

Lounge / Need Good Picture of an MH900e
« on: August 21, 2013, 06:19:46 PM »
Does anyone out there have a great high-res image of an MH900e that is your own intellectual property?  You don't have to own the bike, just the photo.  I am trying to track down a good photo that can be used on an informational page about the MH900e.  If you do, please let me know.  Credit will be given to the owner of the photo.

Thanks!!
