What have you done to your ride recently?

As the title suggests, this is a thread to detail what you have done to your ride recently. Anything goes, from giving it a quick wash, to installing that flux capacitor you have lying around.

I just finished installing new spark plugs, NGK 1 step colder gapped to .032". Car is running great. Currently has 72k on the clock and all of them have been done by me.

There's no replacement for displacement, they say.

On the other hand I've seen my original post may have caused some confusion.

I meant scrap(ing) it.

Lately I've put on a new shift knob which is shorter, less bulky and more solid than stock. Also had a clear bra put on the front, partial hood and mirrors.

Scraping what, Ferrer?

Installed a Termignoni slip on set on the Duc
Swapper her ECU for one mapped for the pipes and put a high flo filter on.

Now it is no longer road legal but who cares?

Oh also instead of saying "Ducati Monster 696" at startup, it says, "Ducati M696 RACING"

After the beastie was stolen, I bought some fat chain so I can attached my Bonnie to the building.

Tightened the valve cover bolts to help stop the oil leak, inspected and oil changed. Although now it's running very funny. Idles very rough and then at low revs after gear change, shakes almost violently. I was actually gonna make my thread to have some of you help me diagnose it but this will do just fine, so, any ideas?
