I'm new to the Monster series, with my sole prior Duc experience being an old 907 Paso that nickeled me to death. Like any knuckle and knee draggin fool I want my new 01 750 Monster to go faster....of course, I want it cheap...lol. What do you all suggest? New jugs? Head port/valve? Can you point me in the right direction to three digit horsepower?


On another note, I'm lookin for other Duc owners to shred around LA/OC with on the weekends. w/b.

Thats a good one...you were kidding right? You are pushing it to get 100 bhp out of a 900 desmodue and that is throw good amount of cash at it. But anyway I would look into MBP red heads check out the US retailer here http://www.ca-cycleworks.com/shop/heads/heads.html (Chris' site) and at the MBP site http://www.mbpducati.ca/index....Frame. Just remember those bhp listings on Chris' site are for a 900. Also BCM does great head work. http://www.bcmducati.com/

Re: 750 Monster Power Upgrades-Any good ideas? (SoCalMonster)

Hey bro, welcome to the board and congrats on the Monsta! I've got an S4 and I think personally the biggest improvements I noticed were the least expensive
Lightened flywheel, slipper clutch or cheaper-get a lighter clutch (basket,etc), wheels. I installed cams/pistons and got a new PCIII, but nothing was more noticeable than the above. Wish I was in S.Cal, but I'm up North of you. Good luck w/the bike. You'll find the people on here (if you haven't noticed already) are more than willing to help out and give great advice...

Re: 750 Monster Power Upgrades-Any good ideas? (SoCalMonster)

Oh yeah welcome to the board I didn't notice this was your first post.
Like blkeh20 suggested there are other ways to improve the performance of your bike than just increasing hp. The best way is to light rotating mass: the wheels, flywheel, clutch are all great choices. You would notice a huge difference in all aspects of the bike's performance(braking, acceleration, and handling) if you get some aftermarket aluminum, mag, or carbon wheel (the latter being the most expensive). There is pretty big difference in flickablity b/w my s4 and m 620 S mainly due to the alu wheels that came stock with the s4 as opposed to the 3 spokes on the 620.

For some extremely interesting reads on enhancing the performance of ducs check out brad black's site at http://www.moto-one.com.au/performance/ It is a great resource with tons of dyno numbers to back up his tinkering. And like the people I talked about in my above post he is also an active member of this site. I'm sure these guys will chime in.

Hey guys, thanks for the quick reply! Truth is, I really love the little beastie. In fact, I flew up to Seattle last Tuesday and rode her straight home to Orange, CA trying to beat the rain and snow. Did the 1500 miles in 2 days and came away with a rear tire worn to the threads, and frozen fingers which I hope will feel better soon.

The bike is very honest in the twisties, but she's a bit light on grunt. I was thinking along the same lines you've suggested, but I didn't have any links to start my search. I'm in the motorcycle industry, sadly, in the HD market. But, I'm looking forward to my original passion, which has always been sport bikes.

Looking forward to chatting with you all later

Re: (SoCalMonster)

Cheapest mod for HP is to buy a 900 motor and swap. When you sell your 750, you'll end up with less of a dent in the wallet.

Re: (SoCalMonster)

I had a '99 M750 prior to my current SS. Quick, easy and (relatively) inexpensive upgrades that will make a huge difference are Keihin Flatslide Carbs, lightweight flywheel, upgraded wires/plugs and lower gearing. None of these require cracking into a perfectly good engine. You should be able to get all these from Chris at http://www.ca-cycleworks.com.

Re: (SoCalMonster)

Yeah I love the engine in my 620 S it is a fun ride for sure. It is actually going to become my track bike now that I have the ms4. Good suggested by triduc on the gearing. I think most people drop a tooth on the front sprocket (15t to 14t). You might also want to look at some swapping the 750 forks for some adjustable SBK ones. Not a power upgrade, but will give you some adjustablity of the handling. Also you should look at cutting the airbox top (or some aftermarket airbox mod) and getting an aftermarket exhaust to open her up a little bit. The intake sounds awesome on the 2v IMO. You will have to rejet the carbs though, which it might need anyway.

You will also want to check out another active forum member's site (Monster Man) at http://www.ducatisuite.com/ Great list of tools needed. And also a list of mods he did to his 98 m750 that would probably interest you.

To answer your question...in the case of an 01, 39mm Keihin FCR carb's, hi comp pistons, flywheel and coils... Should bump you up at least 10hp... clean up the heads, cams and call MBP and you could probably gain another 5-8hp. A real good running 750 you could maybe see shy side of 80 RWHP.. Don't forget the suspension either !
