I just bought a 1098 yesterday, '08 base model red. It was our shop's former demo model and already has the Termignoni full exhaust and a bunch of carbon fiber bits. I'm building a '99 Monster 900 into a race bike for this year, so the 1098 will be a street/track day bike.

nice jarel, just calling the 749R a done deal? did race specs change to allow the extra displacement as a reason to change bikes?

No, racing had nothing to do with it, I won't be racing the 1098 and I really never raced the 749R either, it was just a track day bike. I was planning to race it for '07 but I got hurt at the beginning of the year and pretty much missed the whole season. My Monster will be my race bike for '08, in the CCS Lightweight class. I love the 749R, it's going to be painful to sell it, there are lots of things on that bike that are a notch above what comes on the 1098. But I'm selling 1098's and 848's as a dealer, and I think I need to be riding what I'm selling so I can offer first-hand knowledge to customers.
