I Ride: 1299 S
Modification Prioritization?

Curious to hear how others order their mods? After having picked up a 1299 S, it comes as little surprise that I want to get nearly every after-market thing there is. But obviously one has to be somewhat fiscally responsible in life. So in what order does everyone treat their bike? Curious to hear from people. 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...

Tail Tidy
Carbon fiber pieces

This is what I prioritize.

1. Set up suspension for my weight with full gear

2. I think I'm pretty much done after number one. Lol

It will greatly depend on the person but it looks like you have a nicely personalized 1299. And it really depends on if you want a personal Ducati or do you want more power. Have fun!

I had that thought at one point. But the truth is I don't know that I could handle or would even appreciate more power. I'm taking it to the track for the first time in two weeks, we'll see how I feel after that. But for now it feels PLENTY powerful and I'm just enjoying making it unique. Picked up the race seat yesterday, super excited to put it on today.

1: Stomp grips. DP windscreen. Go.

When you're used to the bike and know more about your riding style, strengths and deficits: Get the bike set up to a base setting to suit you.

I have been lucky enough to have a1299 since last year now,
I have modded it a little more that I first intended, but we always get a little carried away with these things…
Full Akrapovic system
MRA screen
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
TWM remote adjuster
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
