What fits Ducati 899 from the 1199?

I found that the parts diagram is up in the Ducati DCS system now for the 899, so I've started researching which parts from an 1199 will fit over to the 899 to plan my track bike conversion 899 project. So far I've found these items will bolt right over:

Rearsets
Seats
Clip-Ons (Same as S/R model 1199, 53mm)
Front axle sliders
Engine case sliders
Front fender
Sprocket cover
Bodywork (Same as Standard 1199 model w/non-LED headlight)
Triple-Clamps (Same as S/R model 1199)
Both Left/Right race switches
Bar Ends
Brake/Clutch Levers

I'm HOPING the rear suspension parts will bolt over, but not sure on that until we get a bike here to test-fit. When I saw the bike at the dealer show I tried to use the patented stretched-finger-measuring-gauge to check the rear linkage bolt spacing between the 899 and 1199, and it "looked" the same.

Let me know if you guys have other questions about fitment and I'll see if I can look it up for you.
Thanks from Cobra700 and ShiftTechCarbon

Will I be able to fit an 1199 side fairing to my 899?

Ah geeze.....and swap out the swing arm right?lol


But, did read the 899 seat is redesigned and belive it has the same cover as the R. Wonder if this will be a good upgrade to the oem 1199 seat.

Thanks! The 899 seat looks like a potential good bet for road use on the 1199. I'm also wondering if the steeper head angle can be gotten on the 1199 by substituting the 899 steering head insert.

Looked to me like the 1199 and the 899 had the same shock, so I overlayed a pic of both and it appears that you could, in fact, swap the just the shock, or the shock, linkage and P/F bracket thing from the 1199 right onto the 899.

Thanks from Marmoot

I'd be interested in the reduced rake and trail of the 899. assuming it could be retrofitted to the 1199. Is it an insert or a feature of the air box casting? I think the 1199 steering would benefit from being a bit sharper.

It's an insert, part #756.1.014.2AA on the 1199. Haven't seen any parts manuals for the 899 yet and don't know if the inserts are interchangeable or even if that's where the sharper front end numbers come from, but it looks the most likely candidate.

alternative to 899

If I already own an 1199, but want an 899, could I do the following and achieve a similar result?

1. Duct tape of one of the cylinders
2. Plug up one of the headers
3. Seal one of the exhaust cans
4. Go back to the 2012 ECU map

Then I get to keep the single-sided swingarm, TFT dash, and Ohlin shocks.




Sorry guys, couldn't resist.
Thanks from Claymore

A local dealer converted the rear Ohlins MKI that comes stock on the 1199S to be manual adjusting and they did it for an 899. Fits perfectly...

You can also take the right clutch side cover off the 899 and replace with the two piece version on the 1199. Helps in replacing or servicing the clutch...

Looking at the tank as there are some differences mostly in the way it is mounted. The subframe on the 899 appears to be lighter also... no weights taken yet with stripped down 1199 sub.

Will ask my dealer for the 899 part number and cost.
