I Ride: 2017 Ducati 959
Question How do I mount a 1199/1299 tank on 959?

So I am looking to get a tank for my 959, and was told with the 1199/1299 bracket you can fit the 1199/1299 tank.

I do not want to buy a 1199/1299 tank to find out they cannot be installed on a 959.

Does anybody know if this actually works? And if so, what extra parts are req to install it? My understanding is that all you need is the bracket and that the fuel pump from the 959 will fit on the 1299/1299 tank.

you need the rear tank mount at least. Some people have modded this bracket to align up with the mounting holes on the 959 sub frame.
Others have done the complete Subframe change over.
Make sure you get the pump/clamps/rubbers everything you can that connects the tank.

That seems like more work than its worth.

I think I will just try find a 899/959 tank.

It's a good way of dropping some weight, steel vs alu.

If it was me and you had to buy a tank anyway and your keeping the bike, I would go 1199/1299 tank and subframe and you will save a shit load of weight and it's all high up weight, if that floats your boat.
Thanks from Phl and Rogue

It's probably not as much work as you think. Give it a shot!
