I Ride: 2013 Ducati Panigale 1199 r
New to the forum and need a little help w 1199r

I have been riding for 30 plus years and today I made a purchase that I hope gives me plenty of joy and fun on the road and the track, 2013 Panigale R, 0 miles. Got it home and covered it up in the garage. I traded a 2014 s1000rr in on it and I am so glad. Don't get me wrong, the bike was nice but the Ducati is much more me. Anyways, what I need is a list of tools that I will need for this beast at the track. You know to remove front and rear wheels etc.... Also need swing arm stand and front stand. If anyone has some suggestions on what I need to put in the box please let me know. Also, I am 5'10" tall and weigh 205-215 and was wondering if anyone has some preset codes for suggestions to setup the suspension. I know most of it is done but for track purposes just some go bys. Tracks I visit mostly are, Roebling, Carolina Motorsports Park, Jennings, Road Atlanta. I appreciate any responses, suggestions etc....

Thanks
Mike

Congrats and welcome to th forum. The R was definitely the way to go. There is pretty good knowledge here amongst the rambling and ranting. I am working with a guy on the forum that races the Pani and he helped me transform the handling to almost telepathic. Still, ( and will always be) a work in progress, but an awesome machine when it comes together.

Good luck.

Welcome to the forum Mike!
I track my S model. The only tools I've needed so far has been Pitbull stands, proper sized sockets for the wheels(55mm, 30mm), and an 11mm wrench for the clutch bleed( a must). Maybe some Allen keys for the plastics but that is all I've needed. You'll get a lot of good replays here I'm sure. Good luck and welcome again.

Maybe he specialises in gender re-assignment
Or even Urology would be good too
