998 Top Speed?

The Ducati 998 has been my dream bike ever since they came out. I was just wondering if any 998 owners had the guts to hold the throttle to the stop and see what she had on the open highway or racetrack?

998 is a great bike... they arn't super fast top speed is 162mph and its gear limited not electronically limited. It will take you a while to get to 162mph quarter mile is 11.5 sec @ 135mph, so I'd guess, 15 sec or so too 162mph, from a stop. You can get a modern-day corvette to do better,,,

Weird 998 problem


I think your theory sounds pretty accurate or one of the vents is just clogged.

Lift power


Wheelie MONSTER With bike completely stock wheelies are easy. With full DP Termi system and stock gearing it will lift the front on power even in 2nd gear. With 14/42 gearing it will flip over in first if you just whack the throttle open WFO in first. Power wheelies in 2nd & 3rd no problem. The 998 Testra motor is significantly more powerful than the S4. All the above wheelies are all throttle only no clutching or yanking required. Mine is a Beast,,

Weird starting issues


the bike will frequently crank but not start. A quick opening of the gas tank lid cures the problem. My theory is that the vent opening on the cap and the rubber vent tube are not lining up properly. BTW it never has fuel starvation while runningI think your theory sounds pretty accurate or one of the vents is just clogged.,,

Throttle body linkage worn?


other than to say he couldn't adjust it because one or the other would be off. Does this make sense? If so it appears Ducati doens't sell the the linkage separately only the complete throttle body assemby with a price tag of $2300 (up here). I did find a 2004 999s throttle body assembly on ebay: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/DUCAT...3286.m20.l1116 Looks a little different from mine, but I thought the 999 and 998 are supposed to be the same motor. Can anyone tell me with 100% confidence that it will fit an function without significant modification? Or at least if the throttle linkage can be transplanted?,The linkages are different between a 998 and a 999. From what I can remember you can make them fit but with a hell of a lot of mods..... people who have done it may help. Also check out Gotham Cycle breakers in Florida, he had a write up between what models can be transplanted. (Dont have the link sorry) The linkage is worn????? Can you post a picture to show which part he thinks is worn please? By how much will they not sink? Is this on vacuum check or on CO check of each cylinder? Has he done a TPS reset on the setup? Does this guy have a DDS unit? (Basically a hand held computer to check the brains of the bike) Is this being tested with new spark plugs fitted?,,,

998 Cylinder Balancing


that when opening the throttle the front butterfly seems to open fully but the rear butterfly stop short by a few degrees. In other words, front and rear butterflies do not open exactly the same amount. The bike has done 9k miles and apart from maintenance and valve checks, have never bveen worked on. It is in pristine condition, runs great and pulls strong well beyond the 10k redline. I have not had 4V desmo's before and therefore cannot compare power wise, but she feels rather quick to me. For what its worth, it has the 50mm Termi half system and matching ECU. Is this normal and just a result of the factory balancing exercise?,The length of the throttle linkage rod is set in the factory on a test bench. It is a brave person that messes with that linkage rod. What is more accurate is to do a cylinder balance using carb sticks to check if cylinders are balanced on idle. If they are out by one or two degrees at full throttle the difference is minmal and not something that an average street rider should worry about. (When is the last tiem you were banging off the limiter for extended periods of time?) At the same time check your throttle stop set screws to see if they are in the correct place. If the cylinders are balanced at idle I would not worry about it.,,,
