1299s Into Track Bike

Hi all, I've seen a few queries on here around what is compatible from 1199 to 1299, I can answer a few of those hopefully along the way to converting my 1299s into a track bike using 1199 race fairings...

The Start:

Bike Exhaust Porn at its best!


The Fairings:







I'm not going to go into detail on how to remove fairings/lights etc. as I think there is enough threads on here on how to do that thing...

Tail unit to be fitted first...Remove all plastics, number plate holder, lights, lock unit and new style air vents which bolts on with 2 screws that holds the leather strap down and you are left with the same subframe as the 1199...so the 1199 tail unit IS compatible.




New tail bolts on with the 4 bolts underneath and the bolts in front of the seat pad (nice and easy to remove) I have a tracker fitted so ignore the box tie wrapped to the subframe.


Tank cover on...This is made of Fibre glass so will scratch the tank, I covered the tank in 3M double sided tape and gaffer tape which seemed to do the trick. (Austin Racing Tank Cap fitted too)


Next step to remove side fairings and front nose cone...This is pretty much the same process as the 1199. Be mindful to remove the air intake temp sensor off the headlight and keep plugged in otherwise you'll get the engine light up on the dash.




Intake Temp Sensor to unbolt from headlight:

I'm not sure what this Bosch device is in front of the headlight, maybe a lean angle sensor or something, but I should be able to secure it to the new front upper fairing stay.


I've left it as above for now until a 1199 Front Fairing stay has arrived and the new DDA from ducati so I will let you all know how it goes from here...
Thanks from Phl, Gunny Fitz, Gecko and 3 others

I see that you have a spare front mudguard to match your kit. Interested to see if you have much extra clearance to the tyre. Had my R at the track on Friday and there's not a lot of space to get a warmer on the front.

The Bosch device you mention in the bottom is the crucial IMU

another member in here makes dedicated holders for it. Don't bother fixing it improperly.


Nice write up! Have fun at the track!

The IMU needs to be mounted flat and secure so don't just zip tie it wherever it fits.

Will feedback as soon as I fit it as to whether there is any difference...I remember my 1199 mudguard been tight with warmers too!

Thanks for the info on the IMU I will look into it! Hopefully I can fix it to the 1199 fairing stay?

So Finally converted my 1299s into a track bike using 1199 fairings for the upcoming trackdays at Silverstone, Mugello and Jerez later this year...Here's a few snaps.

Fitted the DDA GPS sensor, but because the fairings are 1199 ones meant I needed to fit a 1199 upper fairing surround, luckily I had a spare one from my 1199..

Front mud guard fitted on no problem, with a few extra mm clearance for tyre warmers.




Fitted the IMU onto the 1199 upper fairing stay no problem with a couple of adapter spacer brackets. Also fitted a fibreglass air intake funnel for a 1199 to direct the air flow into the intake (This needed quite a bit of trimming until it fitted correctly as the IMU sensor sits in the way.



The finished article apart from I have some Carbon BST wheels to fit once i've ran her in.




So my overall opinion is that the 1199 fairings will fit with the addition of a few 1199 parts and a bit of adjustment.

Fairings are from MOTOXPRICAMBI and I highly recommend.

Mike.

Thanks for sharing Mike. Looks good. It may just be the angle of your pics but it looks like your new mount for the IMU is a little off vertical. There'll be accelerometer and gyros in there, so I'd be a bit wary initially to check correct function of ABS and DWC and Ohlins Smart EC (which all use IMU readings as inputs).
Thanks from mikecarr4
