    Can't wait to do my 2V. I now have no ambition to take this on.

    I'll let someone with more experience than me chime in -- paging ScottieDucati! -- but 2V engines are really very simple to work on.

    My first 2V Ducati was a 900SS and I did all the work myself and I'm a hamfisted fuckhead.

    Well, I understand your hesitance, it's not for everyone...

    But, I don't tackle this stuff during the riding season, and it sure felt good when the bike fired up no problem a couple days ago. And successfully rebuilding my forks (for the first time), I literally couldn't sleep I was so psyched!
