Not a lot, but it's ready for the weekend

Took damaged belly pan off so I could give the pipes a good clean, clean and lubed the chain and fitted my new Rizoma bar ends.

Repacked the exhausts after finding they where a little lacking.. Sounds much smoother now.

Tried not to die pulling out of my drive as its a blind corner to the right with a mirror up to help you see only the fog was so thick and so many idiots with no lights on that I may as well have just pulled out with my eyes closed, basically came down to listening for the slightest sound of an engine heading towards me

I've removed they pair system. Blanked off the airbox breather and linked the exhaust vacuum to the crank case breather. Job done.

Yesterday I replaced the rectifier after struggling with charging issues. The stator plug was melted into a solid block so linked that out but couldn't find soldering iron. The work continues. ..

Fitted the new rear brake pads and the carbon swingarm protector i bought a few weeks ago. The swingarm protector looks pukka!

I just need the seat hinge to arrive from Germany now and i can fit the monoposto seat unit. It really needs a respray but i am going to try it out for a few weeks first to make sure its solid enough before i price the respray up.

Just got the back wheel back on but not tightened yet as its gone really cold outside very quickly.

Just bought a quality JHP Ducati front mudguard for the 748 for a silly price on ebay. :)

Bike might look a lot different soon.
