Ducati (panigale) Spacers '16 1200r

  1. Not exactly a review, as I haven't had a chance to ride with them yet, but after the last few months of terrible weather, I needed an excuse to wrench on my bike, and the Ducati Spacers (throttle) seemed like a cheap solution. I really didn't see the need for them, but that's not the point, is it. I have to say, it was the easiest "mod" I've ever done. In fact, it was a bit of a let down as it took me all of 5 minutes, and 3 of those were looking for my screwdriver. I didn't even get the opportunity to curse and throw things. Like I said, I haven't had the chance to ride with them yet, but playing with the throttle in my garage, I have to say I think I'm really going to like it. No play in the throttle at all. Anyway, if you're interested in an excuse to wrench on your bike for about $35 they sent me a coupon code to cure the CoronaVirus blues. Enter the code PANDEMIC for 15% off. I get nothing out of this, nor do I know anybody in the company. Just thought I'd share. https://ducatispacers.com

  2. Fitted some on mine , great mod.
  3. Yes, I thought it was hype until @cookster told me it did make an improvement. He was right :upyeah:

  4. Is the millisecond of “play” really a hinderance?

  5. No it’s not. But it does make a difference in feel on the throttle. Never felt I needed anything on my v4 when I had it but on the Pani R there is less surging on low throttle openings.
    I felt just like you before then.

    EDIT. Oh, and I got mine second hand so less worried about the daft cost for a little bit of plastic
  6. Great mod, makes going from closed to opening throttle much smoother
    • Agree Agree x 2
  7. I didn't think I needed them but my mate convinced me to fit them,,,,,,,they do smooth the trottle action out and are worth fitting imo.

  8. Removing the throttle slop using spacers is one of the best and cheapest mod you will find.
    • Agree Agree x 4
  9. Well.... after hearing a lot about fitting throttle spacers, and thinking, oh yeah can’t see how they would make that much difference - today I went and fitted them on my 1200R. Took it out for a quick spin / test ride. Boy, so much better....within the first couple of streets I was convinced. Enjoyed my ride so much more, and didn’t ride it like a Doris at all today !. Wish I’d done it ages ago....

    Anyway, for all those that posted / recommended, thank you. You were right !!

  10. Mine were fitted by JHP when it was in for service.
  11. Can you explain what is now different from before :)
  12. The Spacers remove the slack/ sloppiness from the throttle. So when you twist the throttle you get a much more responsive and improved feel as you feed in the power.
  13. As above. Living in the South East, I spend far too much time in traffic getting to open roads, so particularly in town, not having that slack / sloppiness in the throttle, just makes it much easier to ride smoothly....
  14. Are there any recommended UK suppliers? or are you all buying from the USA?

  15. Doh..... got mine from the US as didn’t know about Coventry JHP !
  16. Google, but now it states 'out of stock'.
    I used it last week to order for my Speed Triple RS & I have both items at home waiting to fit.
