Whether your goals are performance or cosmetic, I'd appreciate hearing what order you did (or will do) your upgrades.

So far I've done:

1. Tail tidy/rear turn signals (done by dealer before pickup)
2. Tinted windscreen (zero gravity)
3. Tank grips (stompgrip)
4. Clear clutch cover/pressure plate/spring retainer (ducabike)
5. bar ends (ducati) installing this weekend
6. Gas cap (rizoma) installing this weekend
7. Upper/lower radiator guards (Evotech) on order
8. Black windscreen nuts (from china) on order
9+: debating between front/rear sprockets, race seat, rear sets, brake/clutch levers, slip on (or full exhaust)/tune...
First thing I did was get a suspension guy to help me set the sag with me on the bike. Then I put on the DP tail tidy. That was over 5 years ago. Lot done since then.

Fitting my tail tidy made me at least 0.5 seconds per lap around Snetterton. Can't wait until I get some decals put on.......
Thanks from TurboLag and able duc

Full Akrapovic system

Ducati performance sport pack-
heel plates
Tank cap
Key cover
Tank pad
Number plate holder
Bar ends
Sprocket cover
Shock cover
Plus brake lever protector
TWM levers

DP race seat
DP rearsets
GB racing Engine protectors
DP radiator protector
DP Axle slider
Ducati DDA
Swinger cover
Chain guard
Shark fin
Rear seat cover
Change of rear spring
Evo Update

But I think all you need to get going are-
Bigger screen
Engine protectors (GB racing)
Radiator guard
And suspension spring etc
The rest is all a matter of taste
Are u happy with your Evo update?Is it worth the money?

LEARN HOW TO RIDE IT.

you don't need to add or remove a single thing. (Ok except maybe the mirrors and lights). No exhaust, or grips, or rearsets, or carbon fiber will make you ride this bike better nor faster.

Spend the money on a msf course, THEN on a track course. leftover funds out into dialing in your suspension.

I agree with this 100%, but that's really not the question I was asking with this thread. I'm just curious how people personalize their bikes.

Having said that, I have done an MSF course and California Superbike School (6 times). I will be focusing on tailoring the suspension next though.

My mods were done in bunches.

Group 1- Rearsets, levers, radiator guards, tidy tail and Puig windscreen

Group 2- DP Carbon hugger, and ignition guard

Group 3- Carbon frame covers, OEM carbon shark fin and heat shield

I only focused on fitting the bike to be and aesthetics because the bike has more than enough power.
