New 1299S owner looking for recommendations and

I recently picked up a low mileage mint condition 1299S with lots of carbon mods, full Akra Ti exhaust and the Akra upmap.

Currently added some BST RapidTek wheels, SC SP V3 tires (V4S standard), lithium battery, Brembo Z04 pads, TechSpec knee pads, throttle spacer and some other small mods.

Waiting for race seat, CNC racing rearsets, P08F1-85 air filter and then will flash the ECU with Tuneboy software and DTC EVO upgrade and add some heat shielding.

Currently evaluating whether to add an Brembo XR 19x18 front master. Really dislike the stock brake pump. anyone tried the stock calipers with the Brembo XR 19x18 and Z04 pads?

Gonna get some proper pics in future but here she is so far.



Done only 600km on her, but so far loving the torque. Very different animal than my previous RSV4 bikes. Brutal is how I described it while digesting the first ride.

After the Tuneboy flash I plan on toying with gearing. The larger SP V3 rear tire adds circumference so a 14T front sprocket with this rear tire is similar to a 41T rear sprocket upgrade with standard rear tire. If I like the 14T I'll probably do a proper lightweight conversion on the sprockets and chain in the future. All recommendations welcome.

I can't decide if I like the stock clipons. Never changed handlebars or clipons on a bike before but on this, they just... don't seem to be in the right spot for me. Any recommendations and experiences on adjustable clipons?

Any other recommendations for modifications or improvements I can get out of this bike easily, are highly appreciated
Thanks from Twistedracer and vanduc996

Thanks, got her cleaned up yesterday. Need to get her to a track to take full use of that massive rear tire

Nice bike with plenty of great upgrades already. I would personally still remove those plastic rear CH heat shields…

That's a great idea. Was thinking to do that actually. No risk of hitting them with legs?

No, there is no risk to hit rear CH by mistake when riding or stand still e.g. in stop and go traffic. Removed mine on my 1199S and I did not feel any increase in heat radiating (I did change the complete exhaust system at the same time) but like to think that engine runs slightly cooler with those removed. I however recommend to use proper riding clothes when riding this bike!

First year 1199 did not have these rear CH covers and came with a smaller exhaust heat shield but after peoples complaining about felt heat from engine/rear exhaust header Ducati added these. I am of that opinion that most of the heat that can be felt is from the rear header and not from the rear CH head.

Interesting. Just checked some photos I took of my buddy's 1199S a few years ago. Sure enough, no CH shielding

In case 1299 people don't mind some high res 1199 photos (album link for 42mp resolution https://imgur.com/a/PcB7E):

Congratulations! Definitely a different animal from the RSV4. Both great bikes.

Thanks, had a few RSV4s and loved them. But ultimately it was always down on torque and having a few Ducatis for street riding, I just really wanted to try owning a Ducati superbike. and why not the last of the V2 torque monsters. So far very satisfied with it. Still getting used to the weird power/torque curve and the dip. My last '16 RSV4 was probably the most linear bike I've ever ridden. 1299 is much more temperamental. 2nd gear 90kmh out of corners, roll on and instant front wheel off the ground lol. Gonna be a while before I'm comfortable on the ground with her like I was the RSV4.

Thanks from Twistedracer
