^^^^^^^Simple fix... I've had myserious brake issues with my first bike "250cc ninja" with the rear brake then my "ktm 990" but has all been solved with a quick and easy purge. Rear brake depress the brake and crack open the 8MM nipple for less than a second and snug it tight. my KTM had front brake issues I started with the farthest caliper doing the same technique. then worked to the nearest caliper then ended it at the master cyliner nipple. it's weird cause in both situations i bleed it once and the issue never came back. just try not to disturb the air in your line because you want one big bubble to get out and not a million tiny bubbles.. so don't be pumping your lever!

11- The famous clutch bleed problem has already arrived. My 14 base 1199 had this too, I hated it. I guess I need to join the bleeders club every 200 miles or get the brembo rcs 16 with the Oberon. I tried a friends bike with that setup, and it felt like it was easier to modulate.

12- The famous heat is back. Oh baby, I mean oh no babies anymore for me. lol Only solution is the full suit, which I don't mind.

13- After the first 300 miles the engine felt like broke in already, lower rpm feeling became more smoother or I'm getting used to the Ducati feel again. (my other bike is a 17 R6, feels like a Cadillac in compare to this)

14-I did the TechSpec and right side lower small piece already came out of the spot and smudged the glue all over. I put it back in and cleaned it up. I don't know how long it will really last on the bike.

15- I'm thinking about reflashing, it helped with running cooler and smoother throttle response with my R6 as well. Rapidbike looks like a good option.

16- Have an appointment with Dave Moss to adjust the suspension this Saturday. I'm looking forward to that.
17- Clutchless downshifts are perfect on this bike. The BMW S1000RR does let you use it, if it's in a good mood. Just when you need it most, it will decide not to work, helping you running wide. This is not the case with the Ducati. I blip the throttle myself, but it's good to know, in case I'm coming little faster than usual, I can have the bike do it for me.
18- Still thinking the 43 T is the wise choice for gearing.

when I put exhaust I'm going with rapidbike.... the big word is when... but it's now... redline is taking preorders so for me it's now or never.....

Oh, that.... yeah, I just take a few seconds to crack the bleeder screw, about every 4th track session or so.

I had some more seat time on the bike and I also got to ride forum member ilmostro's full bolt ons (termis, rapidbike, gearing +++) 1299S.
I'm so much happier with my decision to select the Panigale R. After Dave Moss' suspension adjustment, the bike became very user friendly. It handles truly amazing. The front is 600cc light, and the rear sticks without pogoing, puts the power down. This bike actually made me a better rider, I never carried such a high corner speed before. My knee pucks get a lot more use now. I could go on and on about how everything feels so perfect.
Now for the 1299S comparison, they are two completely different bikes. The 1299S can ride the whole road and corners in 3rd gear smoothly. In the R you only have to shift 583 times lol. I'm actually not complaining. I do like a more involved ride, but for people who want a constant power band, the 1299S is way more easier to ride.
I've always been a fan of conventional suspension. I had the 2015 S1000RR with the electronic suspension and I never felt comfortable on that bike. Every time I braked for a corner the bike felt different. I had the same problem with the 1299S when I rode it. There might be a solution in the fixed settings, but I just prefer one adjustment. That way I can always spot on predict how the bike would react to anything. On a side note, knowing the V4 Speciale also comes with an electronic suspension made me feel good about getting the Pani R now. I'll wait for the V4 R in 2019 and make a decision by then about it.
One last thing, I ride with the Sidi boots and their back side has a screw on it for the plastic piece mount. It scratched my swingarm and the carbon rear hugger. I'm pretty pissed about it. I just ordered me a pair of Dainese Axial Pros. They are definitely better on the bike. So throw those Sidis away before it damages your bikes.
