Have you actually started and run the bike, Mike? The Bosch IMU is incredibly sensitive, and needs resetting whenever you remove the headlights or do any major chassis mods, and you need the dealer to do this otherwise it's "hello, fault codes" and the bike won't work.
The position of the IMU is critical for the internal gyroscope, and if you're removing the sidestand for track bodywork, you need to make up a jig which simulates the EXACT position of the bike on its sidestand, otherwise nothing will work except the fault codes glaring at you from the dash....

I'd be interested in anyone who has a kit for fixing the IMU in the same place as standard but which allows headlight removal. Here in France, all the makers of race polyester are dragging their feet with the 2015 fairings.

Here's a good article explaining why the IMU is so important...

Sorry for late reply...Yes had the bike up and running on a couple of track days so far...I had an error come up when I had the wheelie control adjustment on the fly and I changed it from 5 to 2 at Silverstone which resulting in a few large wheelies. This brought up a few errors on the dash but I did the tyre recalibration and it cleared and not had a fault since.

Where did I see "Haters going to hate" before? (comments on tech article). Prince Albert could you task "Arsehammer" to sort him out please?

Just so everyone knows this is not correct . You do not need to make up a jig at all .

Hi. Just thought it was worth mentioning as not everyone seems to be aware. Ducati do their own track fairing kit which includes all the replacement plastic blanks for the lights,etc and obviously fits perfectly as it is basically the standard fairings (possibly a little thicker?) without a paint job. It was 500 here in the UK for complete front and rear plus blanking units which is cheaper than many of the aftermarket fairing kits that do not include the blanking units. I've taken a load of phots as I was fitting mine and will try to get them in post as soon as I get a chance.
Thanks from ChrisE

I've posted a mini thread here on fitting the Ducati track fairings which may be handy for anyone looking at doing this. I'll try to do a proper thread on this site if I get a chance.
