'00 Ducati ST2 Leggera Project
« on: Jan 17, 2014, 14:56:16 »
The Ducati ST2 is a lovely Sport Touring bike. 944cc 2 valve dead simple.  Bought her in the summer with 6700miles on her.  She was stolen early in life and hence had a rebuilt title.  Like all good projects this one started out as I started to peal off the layers and discovered more an more things that were wrong.  One day after a service I took her for a rip with all the fairings off and said to myself... hmm, this is hella fun.  Thus project Leggera began. 

Started by de smog.  Removed airbox and added pods.  Then relocated coils and rectifier.  Its a work in progress but hey... not likely another on here so thought it might be the place for this.  Not really a streetfighter.  Added a monster upper triple with Renthal bars.  Rizoma bar end mirrors.  Open clutch.  Ballistic battery. Chipped ECU, Koso Digital Dash, LED Headlight and signals etc.  Enjoy.





Here she is clothed.  Looks better than she really was! Had damage hiding under the body.  Also a fubarred wiring harness.

Few updates.  Getting all the wiring bits sorted out.  Still have a problem that I need to fix with the fuel gauge not working.  Annoying. All the others seem to be fine now.  Got the lettering laid up nicely on the sides. Went vintage Ducati script for some flair.  Just added braided clutch and brake lines.  Here is an under tank image so show how its all packaged.  Up front is rectifier and coils, along with all the wiring.  I think I will make another harness using a motogadget mUnit down the road.  For now shes pretty much almost road ready.

Added a few bits and bobs.  Scored a set of used Ducati Performance pipes.  She sounds the business now!  Sorted out all the teething issues which have been minimal.  Got about 150km on since completing.  A royal blast!

Enjoy!

Agreed. The reason it is as it stands is that I wanted to be able to revert to the stock if so desired.  But.... I am seriously thinking of the solo seat :)

Also under the seat and in the side pods are an overflow tank, Computer, relays etc.  All that said... if I ever decide to keep it naked I may just hack the backup :)
