I Ride: 2008 1098S, 2018 1299R FE
Ducati 1299 FE add-ons and questions

Ok, got my FE... Love it. Been out for a few rides on it. There are some things I want to change on it, but Iím looking for advice and tips from anyone who has done any of the following:

1. Switched to GP Shift. My old 1098S had this, and I guess my mind has been re-wired for it. I love the GP pattern, and I want it on this bike. Who has switched theirs and how did you do it? What Rearsets did you switch to, and any trouble with the quickshifter?

2. Tail tidy. I want to put on the very popular NRC LED lights and license plate bracket. When I looked at the pictures, the license bracket mounts where the FE has the carbon cover for the cross tube on the handlebar exhaust pipes. Anyone know if that can still be mounted? Are there other license plate solutions for the FE?

3. Clear clutch cover. Anyone see any reason why 1299 R parts wouldnít work on the FE?

4. Bubble windscreen. Love the shape of the FE windscreen. Anyone know who makes the exact same size/shape/profile, but in medium smoke?

5. Plastic engine covers on the side. I see all of these (seemingly) ridiculous little plastic covers all over the side of the engine. Can I take them off? Is the engine that ugly underneath? Are these purely aesthetic, or are they necessary for some reason on the FE?

6. Iím about 175 lbs. in normal street clothes. The suspension setup on this thing is WAY wrong for me. It feels way too wobbly when I come over the tank on a chicane style corner. I think I need a much more supple setting on the front, and a decent reduction in rear pre-load, but Iím just guessing. Who has some suggestions?

I know this is a ton of stuff, but hopefully it will interest other FE owners as well.

Oh she SWEET! Got a good few thousand on mine, love her.

1. Switched to GP Shift. My old 1098S had this, and I guess my mind has been re-wired for it. I love the GP pattern, and I want it on this bike. Who has switched theirs and how did you do it? What Rearsets did you switch to, and any trouble with the Quickshifter?

CNC Racing Rear Sets, there is a pivot arm in the rearset that changes over to GP without disturbing the sensor. Everything works great, first thing I did. The heat shield needs modification though.

2. Tail tidy. I want to put on the very popular NRC LED lights and license plate bracket.

Get a Motobox setup itís PERFECT.

3. Clear clutch cover. Anyone see any reason why 1299 R parts wouldnít work on the FE?

Iíve got the CNC Pramac on mine, perfect. You canít use the aftermarket pressure plates though, our clutch has a taller stack because of the servo.

4. Bubble windscreen. Love the shape of the FE windscreen. Anyone know who makes the exact same size/shape/profile, but in medium smoke?

Try Zero Gravity, they have about 10 styles.

5. Plastic engine covers on the side. I see all of these (seemingly) ridiculous little plastic covers all over the side of the engine. Can I take them off? Is the engine that ugly underneath? Are these purely aesthetic, or are they necessary for some reason on the FE?

You can pull them, but they do direct a lot of air, and deflect a lot of heat.

6. Iím about 175 lbs. in normal street clothes. The suspension setup on this thing is WAY wrong for me. It feels way too wobbly when I come over the tank on a chicane style corner.

Many will argue but Ohlins is for shit. Our back shock is fake TTX, and a total pos. The fork cartridges are negligible, but will beat your fillings out. Either going BiTubo or Mupo.

Iím Agents of Italia on IG, starting my Redline exhaust install today and have a whole lot more coming; and a whole lot already done. ✌🏻

I know this is a ton of stuff, but hopefully it will interest other FE owners as well.
Hopefully this posts, giving me trouble! Lol
