Wink 996sps

I was wondering if anybody out there can suggest some go fas ter tips for my 2000 996 SPS? I've already sceamed the head, lightened flywheel and done the carbon bodywork. Considering carbon wheels at the moment but they seem quite expensive. Any suggestions to better the best?

bst carbon wheels would be my first choice (if $$$ was no object).

bang for the buck choice would be a 1036 big piston kit:

I put Dynamag carbon fiber/mag wheels on my bike and I love them. Bike handles a lot better, accelerates and decelerates faster. And they look really COOL!
Also lighter fly wheel, titanium timing belt pulleys, High compression pistons, Although the s already has them. Up 2 teeth in rear. along with the termi exhaust and a Power Commander won't hurt. Lotsa carbon will also help ya go faster.

Wheels came off showroom bike from Pro Italia in Cali. Kind of a 1 time deal. $3k including Parelli Diablo tires.

I have a 2001 996 SPS.

Wheels are a big one for sure. I have forged aluminum wheels.

As I do track days with this bike.

Most people that have fancy Carbon wheels do not do track days, and if they do, their a little slower than others without.

Fast By Ferracci Ducati has a ton of stuff for the Ducatis. He has overbore kits and various other items. Kind of expensive but everyone is expensive with Ducati items.
