Club Racing on 1299 - Bike Prep

Been trying to find some catalog of anyone who's built and competed on a 1299 in club racing. I'm trying to answer a few questions, specifically regarding the need for a belly pan.

It looks like on the 1199 the Termignoni cans were required to fit the belly pan, but I can't find consensus on whether or not the 1299 Akrapovich cans will also allow for it to fit?

Furthermore, I'm wondering if the Sharkskinz belly pan will fit under the Ducati factory track bodywork.

If anyone has direct experience let me know. I'll report back once I find and/or apply a solution through trial and error.

this is the problem with the 1299, aside from DP and motoxp ricambi, there's so few people that make and sell track body work for the 1299.

For any club racing, I'm almost certain that a belly pan is required. I have also seen a few belly pans that are designed to fit the akra pipes but I can't remember who makes them off the top of my head.

I do know that sharkskinz does not make a 1299 specific set, armour bodies said they'd have one available by xmas 2016 but I haven't heard anything since then and it's not on their website.

Yeah, belly pan must hold 4 quarts of oil--I think that is pretty standard for most clubs.

I hate to have to buy an exhaust system just to meet the rules--IMO a lot of money can be spent elsewhere for better performance gains. Also fearing exceeding the DB limits with a full Akra system....

You can use a turkey pan and safety wire that. Chaotic and a few other are racing 1299s. To be honest, other than bodywork and suspension setup, there isn't much needed for the 1299s. I would also add the Rapidbike and the launch control as well.

NW1299 there's a novice racing a 1299 with WMRRA. You might check out his setup when the season starts if it's not to late.

April 22-23 at Pacific.

This is what you're suggesting I use?



No thanks.

We've built quite a few Panigale race and track day bikes.

What bodywork are you planning on running? Sharkskinz, Armour Bodies and Catalyst all sell the belly pan. You must remove your canisters, mount the belly pan, then put the canisters back on.

To prevent having to remove your cans every time you change oil, I suggest running the Kraaitech set up. The kit comes with an angled drain plug as well as a rubber plug for the bottom of the belly pan. When changing oil, this allows the oil to flow straight down out of the sump through the hole in the belly pan. When done, plug the hole in the belly pan and you're done.

Quick question here... I have Armour bodies body work, will the belly pan work with stock cans? I did receive the handy Kraaitech set up from you guys, I'd say it's a must upgrade.

The racing belly pans will not work with the stock cans. I mean, anything is possible with fiberglass modification...but the way they come OEM cans won't fit.

Haven't decided on bodywork brand yet. Do you have a recommendation from your own experience? Also, I'm having a hard time finding 1299 specific fairings. Everything is listed as 1199, not 1299.
