Product reviews, Pro Grips 717, Kriega bike bag, skurnet exhaust servo eliminator

Dear Forum
just thought i would share....

1) Pro Grips 717 dual density grips are worth the money. one of my long term goals is to make the bike more comfortable, and for 15 dollars (or whatever it was) the pro grips made a difference, how much you might ask ? enough to warrant the price. instillation was easy just don't push to hard on the handle bars or you will tip over the bike..

Verdict 8/10... worth it if you want alittle less strain on your wrists. they are also very grippy which helps.


2) Skutrnet exhaust servo buddy ... the noise maker.
One thing that drives me nuts about the stock bike is this exhaust valve for noise emissions. like everyone else in this forum i want to hear my Ducati, its the sexiest engine ever.... agreed?
the connection of the servo was a snap. I also disconnected the cable (also easy) to the valve and blammo... alot more noise riding around town.

Verdict 9/10 get it.. downside, you may piss off your neighbors more.

3) Kriega 20 liter bike bag. I have to say this is the best bike bag i have ever owned. world class quality very durable and the double liner (per pict) was a nice touch. it fitted like a glove on the back of the Ducati and has backpack like strap for walking around.

verdict 10/10 get it today... bonus, you can expand to two other 10 liter bags on the side for more room.


thats it.

cheers

I learned a long while back that the easiest way to avoid the exhaust valve is to simply refrain from holding the RPM constant @ 4500. It would close like clockwork at that rpm if held more than 5-10 seconds. And stay closed until I increased RPM above 5k. Interestingly I've come to realize that I haven't "heard" the valve close at all for the past 7500 mi. Which leads me to believe the dealer disabled it at the 7500 mi service - either physically or electronically.

You can also expand with just a single 10l on top. It's a nice feature of the Kriega modular design system. They've become my go-to bag for luggage. I use their R25 backpack for my Panigale (expandable with the same 10l dry bag) and a US20/US10 combination on my Speed Triple R.

Keep your voice down! I'm hoping Kreiga nor Ducati heard that. Their stuff is already expensive enough (admittedly worth it) without Ducati slapping their DP label on it and doubling the price.

It's cheaper than DP, said quietly

I also run the Kriega system. I have the Kriega 20L with a 10L topper bag on the tail and a Kriega R30 backpack with the chest cube. I have used this for daily driving and small trips. I'll be taking off on a trip from South Carolina to Indianapolis through the smokies and the tail of the dragon area later next week and using it to haul everything I need.
