Post New Monster S4 owner in Oceanside
Hello everyone,
my name is Luca and I live in Oceanside with my wife Mary and our dog Rodger... This weekend I picked up my first sportbike and my first Ducati: it's a 2002 Monster S4.

I moved to the US 4 years ago from Italy, so I wanted to represent a little bit... Not to mention, of course, that I've always loved Ducati. No other bike sounds like one and look like one...

Here's how she looked like when I picked her up:

I didn't like the high exhaust, so I put back the stock. Also the PO had installed an open airbox and, in conjunction with the exhaust, it was making it run lean... I've put back the stock airbox and now it runs and sound like it should... Oh, btw, the MIVV exhaust are for sale if anyone is interested.

I'm planing on replacing the clutch cover with something open that let that wander sound of dry clutch really come to life...

Welcome Luca. I also live in Oceanside. NCBN is Thursday next week, we can make it back before dark and take PCH the whole way. Let me know if you are interested.

Yup, just one (1) if I had an ex-wife, she would've taken her's with her.

Thanks Aron for the welcome... Unfortunately this weekend I had a close contact with the gravel so I got a couple of broken parts. Nothing major both me (just a scrape knee) and the bike (broken handlebar and foot peg, a couple of scratches...).

It sucks being a noob :babyboy:

I've found everything I need from eBay and the dealer so I should have her ready in no time, hopefully by next Thursday... I'll update you...
