Ducati 749 (2003-2007)

Preferred by some to the Ducati 999, and for good reason. The Ducati 749 is a cheaper motorcycle new or used, plus the smaller engine makes just the right amount of power for the chassis in certain road riding situations. The Ducati 749 has a kind of balance, an addictive precision, in its steering, acceleration and braking that makes it a machine that...

Any problems with 2005/6 749?

I am thinking of buying a new 749 but after reading the problems some have experienced with the old 2004 model with stalling I'm not so sure. Does any one know if the 06 is any more reliable? Considering a 749 or an new 03 model aprilia rsv 1000 Thanks

Tank Range

O.k. lets get started on this one, anyone run out of fuel yet, and therefore have the definitive answer? I sadly ran out whilst out on the test ride, which wasn't even helpful, as i dunno how much was in it to start with. The light was on when i picked it up, and the guy says "it'll be fine mate" when i asked if it needed filling up. apparently he meant "it'll be fine to get you to the garage" donut. I used to have a 748 (hence the user name) that would do 120 till the light came ...

Vibrations

Is it common to get vibrations at about 9k to 10k revs? It is a quite harsh sensation coming through the handlebars. Comments greatly received

Rrsend

Just a one bad point about the 749/999 rrsend number plate bracket. Everything was fine with the bracket but the acorn nuts that were suppiled with the kit to replace the original bracket nuts were the wrong size so they didn't fit. It only took a vist to my local motor spares shop to get some that did fit. I also recomend using acorn nuts on all the exhaust fitings ie the electrics tube because they sheild the threads form crud that gets flicked up from the road.

tank pad

anyone agree with me but the tank pad which is fitted is rubbish, when ever i get back i have to polish marks off the top of the tank, i got so fed up i ordered a flexible ducati tank pad and cut it down to fit on top of the tank, it looks really good and works well

Comfort

Hi All, has anybody got any advice on making the 749 a bit more comfy?? I know theres a certain pain/pleasure theory for superbikes, but I use mine a lot in town and Im planning a trip to Spain (can you imagine!!). Are there any clipons for the 749? (Ive asked about but only Gilles do one, and thats including the yoke, at over %XA3230!). Do rearsets help?
