Ducati Performance Rear Set

I picked these up in the classified section from "DUCKYMAR". They were brand new and the transaction went great. Excellent dialog and quick shipping with updates along the way. Great person to do business with!

That said, I started the install and adjustments last night as I was excited to try them out. I have a few suspension adjustments to make then I will give a small review on the product.

I did have an interference issue with the Carbon Heal Guard against the Termignoni Heat Shield. I added pictures below to show what had to be trimmed and then an overall shot to show completetion.

Drove it last night and had to make a few small adjustments. I will dial them in over the next couple rides to get everything exactly where I want them.

Very easy install, good instructions and real nice quality!


















I also added the Ducati Clear Tank Protector. Not sure I will keep it on yet. I was hoping to get better coverage of the exposed aluminum.



Thanks from ecobully

How is your rear brake light sensor? I put mine on this winter and in all my fiddling I can't get the light to come on when depressing the rear brake while still maintaining enough tension in the spring.

I think your tank pad is crooked, however.

I set it up so the stop light comes on with any weight on the pedal at all.

There are so many adjustments to these rear sets I can understand your frustration.

The spring has 3 different positions to set the tension.

The platform bolt can be adjusted up and down to depress/release the switch.

The back side of the rear set also has an adjustment swing pivot for the push rod.

If you need any help feel free to call and I can help walk you through the adjustments.

I measured it over and over and it is as close to center as I can get. I am just not too impressed with the look or coverage!

That why I haven't put one on, every one I've seen seems to peel. I also don't have the fancy polished aluminum R tank, however

I used alcohol prep pads and a heat gun and it stuck great. I just think I will be pulling it back off.

I also tried the Techspec grip pads for the tank and they would not stick at all. The grips didn't look right on the tank either so no loss. I e-mailed them and they wouldn't even reply?? I do like the knee pads from Techspec as they provide great grip and stuck great.

Here are a few better pics of the Techspec knee grip pads. I love the way they feel and look. Thanks for looking and I always appreciate the replies.

Is there a reason you didn't fit the tank grips also???
