Operation: Hyper rescue and resurrection

The most interesting thing happened a few weeks ago. A long time member here pm'd me saying;

"Hey, bud. Got any interest in a 07/08 Duc 1100 Hypermotard that's been sitting up for a couple of years? I bought it a few years ago, 5k on the odometer. I've put less than a thousand on it. The chain and sprockets are rusted along with the normal shit sitting up causes them. Everything worked great, ran perfect. My kidneys failed and I can't do that kind of riding anymore. I'm too big and old for it anyway. A year or so ago, I replaced the battery and got flashing dash lights. I didn't mess with it anymore. I'd like to see it being used. I figure xxxx would be a jam up price, another thousand should get it back to where it should be. Not worried about selling it, not pushing it on you, just offering it to you. If you aren't interested, that's no problem. I like keeping up with your Duc riding. "

At first, I thought "I'm not in the market for another bike, much less this type of one". Then I thought "he really wants me to have this bike and knows I'll make it right, plus use it as intended" (not to mention, the price was beyond incredible). So I decided, I'm going to have me a new toy. Then, as I really started thinking and talking it over with my team mates, now we have our next Pikes Peak race bike as per their new rules. So, this thing is on.

This weekend I met him and picked up my new project; a 2008 bone stock Ducati Hypermotard that's been sitting under a carport for years.

It is dirty and mildewed up. Gas tank has dried fuel, seat is dirty, oil lines are rusted everything is a mess. After I spent a few hours cleaning her up and she looks great on the surface, but the tank is a mess, rubber pcv line cracked, all rubber is dried.

I have track take off tires from the 996, so those will be switched along with oil and filter, brake pads, and anything else that comes up.

I took the gas cap apart to clean the hardened fuel.

Currently, I have a battery on order, and just picked up a used fuel tank, fuel pump and carbon fiber tank cover.

More to come.......

BTW:
I have named her "Psycho Duc". I rode one of these at the bike show back in 06? When they first came out. It's stupid fun, hooligan hyper psycho riding on one of these. I could see myself getting into a lot of trouble. plus, I loved Married With Children back in the day and remember Al Bundy watching Psycho Dad on tv, so the hyper is now called- "Psycho Duc".

Hhmm. I got the new batt Tuesday, charged it and installed it last night. I turned the key on and the display just flashes solid white.

With some searching, those with this problem get instructed to "replace the instrument panel", but there is never an update stating that it actually fixed it. For almost $1k, it's not a guess I want to take. Has anyone seen this and fixed it? When I get more time, I'll hunt down wiring schematics and see what I can find along with (if need be) opening up the cluster and digging around inside. I can't see how replacing the battery destroyed the cluster, but its a Ducati, so anything is possible.

Rear wheel cleaned up nicely and I installed one of my take off Dunlop Q3. Its a 190/60 off my 996, but it will be fine (original is a 180/55)

The gas tank and fuel pump are pretty ate up and there is a used one in the for sale section on another site, so better be safe than sorry.

Wow. I'm always up for a project, and have restored a lot of bikes that get kicked under the carport but with the new Ethanol fuels stuff gets so bad, so fast

I made fuel injector cleaning machine thing actually works pretty well. It pulses the injector at 240PPM as you put cleaner through it. Saved a couple Triumph Speed Triples with that thing so far!
That fuel pump assembly looks familiar though? Maybe look for a Walbro replacement pump with the same specs instead of the whole assembly from Italy? I'm a cheap-ass and it's worked well in the past. I have no info on that dash for you, I hope it's easy. All my Duc's have only had needles

I always bypassed the Hypermotards because of that gawdawful beak. I hear they're fun, and I can't wait to see what you do!

I'm picking Up a tank and fuel pump assembly from a forum member on a ducky site, for $100. If that doesn't work, I think there is an interchange for a "normal" car type pump. I still need to dig a bit on that.

I do fear the injectors are fubar'd too, but my buddy owns a motorcycle shop, so I can go play with the ultrasonic cleaner there. Ethanol sucks btw

There's a lot of talk about that beak. once I get everything up and going, it will be addressed.

When you are done with the restore, would you get my dirt dobbers back to me? They are highly trained to build their houses where they create a perfect Venturi.
Kinda like a Cummings getting better mileage going up a grade, overloaded. When I put the battery in it, I got flashing panel lights. Before that, I rode it to where you saw it. It had zero issues. Ethanol is the worst. I tried to avoid it in the Duc. I only put a few hundred miles on it. The damage may have been started before I got it.
Want your money back?

I can send you all the dirt dobbers you want.

Na, I don't want my money back. There is a lot of little things to get it back up to my standard, but its mostly time and digging in my parts bin to find stuff. A lot of things are interchangeable from my 996 to the hyper, so some of the performance stuff I upgraded on the 996 I can use the stock parts on the hyper. Once i get the fuel pump and tank, it should run on its own and I can get a better idea what else I need. I'm going to replace the belts, too, while its apart.

That instrument panel seems to be the only major setback, but I'll figure something out with it.

It should all be from sitting up. It was GTG before. Here's hoping it's all cheap ( for a Ducati ) to fix. If I can help, holler

Between being busy, waiting on some odds and ends parts, and allergies kicking my ass, progress has been slow. I did put on new hand grips. The old ones were hard as a rock.

I forgot to mention; I dropped in a new/used fuel pump and she runs on her own. I took the clutch cover off to check the clutch discs. I have a carbon fiber one off my 996, but can't find it at the moment.

I Ordered Cush drives and belts, but With everything going on, I probably won't be able to install them for a few weeks.

On the plus side, I dropped off the instrument cluster to my cluster guy (doesn't turn on, just flashes) ; he found the problem, now just trying to source the part. I figure if he can fix it, I'm sure there will be a lot of happy hyper riders out there. This seems to be a common problem on these bikes.

Cool project, especially for Pike's Peak. Hypers are fun. My biggest issue with them is that the motor totally wants to run 100+ mph on the interstate, while the straight up riding position makes that really tiring.

Got some new toys today. Cush drives, timing belts and s plugs.

This *should* finish up everything I need to get her up to speed, minus the instrument cluster. Now just to find time to put it all together.

It's kinda purty just naked like that. It doesn't look like most homemade 'street brawlers' that are just some teenagers solution to dropping his GSXR...
