Ducati engine building is Mark Sutton's specialty. With 24 years of Ducati experience - four of which were with factory Ducati AMA Superbike teams - it makes him the most experienced Ducati technician in the southeast and one of the most qualified in the nation. Customers send their bikes or engines from all over North America, Canada, and Europe for Ducshop to blueprint and prep for the road or track.

Our Ducatis have a strong reputation, finishing 3rd in the Daytona 8 hour endurance race, many Daytona 200's on 848's and 3 Moto ST Championships with the DS1000 engine.

A blueprinted engine will produce more power and last longer than a stock engine and anyone thinking of racing or doing track days on their Ducati should seriously consider the investment. When you get a street bike from Ducati it is assembled with very tight clearances so it is more likely to spin a rod bearing or wear other parts prematurely. Blueprinting will set the clearances closer to Corse specs as well as ideal cam timing, etc.

From blueprinting to creating a full Superbike engine, Ducshop can customize your Desmo to suit your needs.

Shipping your engine or full bike to us is cheaper than you think. A bike can be shipped door-to-door from coast-to-coast for about $600, and an engine can be shipped for about $250. Call us to get a shipper recommendation. You'll be surprised how easy and affordable it is.

In-House Dyno tuning:

Sometimes fuel system tuning can be treated as a black art but it's more than just loading a map into your ecu,  we are trained and experienced tuning with most software including Microtec, TuneBoy, Rapid Bike, Bazzaz, Nemesis, NCR and Power Commanders.

One map doesn't fit all. Every cylinder requires its own custom fuel map since injector flow rates, cam timing, port shape, compression ratio, etc. will vary.  Ducshop takes all these variables into account to build the fuel and ignition map per cylinder to get the most out of your bike.
