Parting out 2008 Ducati 1098S with 916 miles

Bought this bike salvaged for a project. As you can see, it had a lowside on the left side. I kept the front wheel, forks & frame as they were straight. Selling all the parts I don’t need and that are in good condition. While some of the parts here probably don’t belong on a show bike, everything here is perfectly usable and I’d be using it if it was useful for my project.

All parts are in very good condition unless otherwise mentioned; I threw away anything that was very damaged. Please be sure to check the pictures for more info.

Big thanks to my buddies Eric and Gerald for helping me start riding and giving me so many pointers over the years.
