Tank extension

I am on the verge of getting a tank extension plus seat for my 1299 from Raceseats.it

I want to ask about anybody's experience using a tank extensions. Is it worth the cash.

Thanks.
Thanks from TOBTEK

I liked the idea and tried it, but for me it put me too far back in the seat and completely changed my riding position and I didn't like it. I have short arms and it made the reach to the bars too long to maintain good control while hanging off, and altered my foot/leg position.
Thanks from Thamer and GunMoto

It depends on your height. It gave a better position on the motorbike and the feeling.

Stock seat but modified foam. Fit without any problems. Added only some micro gum under to keep tank without scratches

I use one and so do most people who race the Panigale. It puts your weight backwards when riding and makes it feel more like an a Ducati 1098 sort of position. Loads of people were having off throttle low sides on the Panigale when they first came out and these are credited with helping stop that. Ive had two off throttle low sides on the bikes without the tank extension and not had any problems since. I'm six foot and it feels good, just a bit further reach to the bars. Most of the racers are like dwarves and don't seem to have any issues

Do you run one on the pani R as well, or do you find the later chassis has corrected that?

Just curious as I never had an original 1199 variant, but several track mates did when they
first came out, and they just didnt get on with the chassis feel at all.
