IMU Mounting for 2015 R?

Hi all,

We've been having issues with our race bikes and the IMU of the 2015 Panigale R. Is there a specific angle to mount the unit at or a specific orientation? Is it just the same as the Panigale S mounts i see commonly here on the forums? Help is much appreciated. At the moment the wheelie control number flashes on and off and it appears not to be working

Hope someone can chime in.

The IMU mounts different on the R as is goes to the S due to the LED lights .The angle is very specific if the angle is not correct you will get errors .
This is how I have mine mounted

Hi Wilkson,

Thanks so much for the reply, Just to clarify, all the models with LED lights have the same mounting position? Thus the S and R use the same mount? Can I have details on the angle you used on your bracket as I'd like to fabricate my own.

The R doesn't have the LED lights.

Looks great bracket, How did you manage to figure out the correct angle ?

I'm running a 1199 Race brkt/fairing setup on a 1299S and need make bracket myself.

Then I guess I should be copying base model mounts?

I just finished the IMU on my bike.

wilkson and tcelano both make brackets (thanks guys!!) but they are slightly different. wilksons replaces the whole thing, and must be set at the correct angle as he suggests.

the bracket that tcelano makes uses the original IMU holder (which mounts perfectly flush at a flat angle) so the original angle remains intact.

both brackets work, and both dudes are awesome and have been very helpful in PMs. I don't think I'd be nearly as far along on my race conversion without wilksons help.

I'm using an 1199 ebay fairing stay and 1199 race fairings, BTW, and have just finished the entire process, so let me know if you need any help (i have an S, not an R, though)

I took a measurement of the IMU when mounted on the headlight and just copied that angle . It worked out spot on .

This possible difference in IMU mounting between S and R could be why the Ducati 1299 track bodywork kit is not showing as fitting the R model on their product info.
