DP rear sets installed!
 
G'day fellow forum followers.
I'm new to the forum and live in (mostly sunny) Brisbane Australia. So much rain lately I'm getting cabin fever.
This has given me the time to install my Ducati Performance rear sets and my first impressions are awesome! Just what the bike needed.
Very fiddly to install for the mechanically inept such as my self but oh so rewarding once it was done.
I have had my Tricolore since October 2012 and have installed all the bells and whistles I could get my hands on so far.
Nothing sounds better than the Panigale with full system at full noise down the straight of your local race track, I thoroughly recommend it.
Now to get back to the track and try the reverse gearbox option that I have been bestowed with after installing the DP rear sets!
:D

Sup bro

Id love to see photos of those DP rear sets. I'm thinking of getting them as well.

Would be good to hear your thoughts on how the riding position has changed.

Also, which height position you used and your own height.

I'm still chewing this decision over.

Hi Guys, I will take a few pics and post them tomorrow.

I chose the high setting and also the faster shift option, the lower of the two mounting points for the gear change tie rod.
I am 5'8 ish and find that instantly I had better grip on the tank. The pegs are so grippy you could move around with a lot more confidence.
The shift time is faster and most noticeable because of the short flick that is required to shift.
I found it hard to justify the price but they looked so good. It was a pleasant surprise to get home and find that they allowed me to reverse the shift pattern by changing the gear change con rod from behind the rear set to in front.
I will show this in the photo to come.

Gavin,

make sure you stick some lock-tite on the one bolt that holds the gear selector and peg on. the one that goes in from behind that's real close to the chain. I remember reading on here that somebody had one fall off when riding it and I almost had the same at the weekend. bolt had a few turns in it and it would have fallen clean off.

Hey Gavin,

Any luck on those photos yet? I'm dying to see them on a bike.

Well done. I totally agree with all your comments. Remember, DP rear sets love locktite.

Thanks for the advice everyone, each comment has been very helpful. I am a little paranoid about the locktite so I will be keeping a keen eye on all bolts for sure!

I've taken a few dodgy pics with the iphone but hope they will do!

The pic with my finger in it shows the reverse shift linkage provided and where it would attach. This pic also shows the two mounting point options for a std or faster shift option.

Love the machine marks and each components manufacture date etched onto the surface.

First decent ride to test them out this weekend if the weather holds up.

Looks great Gavin! Can you stop by and throw mine on? I've had them since Xmas and haven't had time to install them... I know...I'm a slacker.
