Featured 1299 Finally ( And Rather Unexpectedly ) My 1299s Has Landed

Discussion in '899 / 959 / 1199 / 1299 / V4 Panigale' started by The Moosehunter, Apr 6, 2019.

  1. Good Evening Dave’s

    Yesterday I picked up my very first Ducati and obviously very First Panigale. A beautiful 2015 1299s

    All happened a bit quick last week but delighted to finally have taken the plunge after 4 long years of waiting

    Look forward to being able to join in now on the forum rather than just lurk, and maybe meet up with any Southern UK folk

    One very happy Panigale owning Moose

    Get a bit of acquaintance time with the beast and would be well up for a ride out

    I can confirm the anti - wheelie works .... quite a lot

  15. Morning Moose,can you tell me in what way do the spacers improve the bike please?
    It’s on my list of things to do and I’m interested to hear your opinion. Cheers
     
  16. Errrr lurker where’s my bins!!!:punch:

    You dropped your pillion too

    Looks lovely :)
     
  17. They take all the slack out of the twist action of the throttle. It’s one of my personal pet hates with any bike and was so pleased to hear when test riding a 1299 for the first time that the mod is readily available.

    2 simple to fit spacers ( took me literally less than 5 minutes ) and now that vagueness has gone completely

    Biggest benefit is instant throttle response when turning in and feeding in the power when cornering, without having to prempt the slack, and also pulling away is a lot smoother too.

    One of those things you can kind of ride around if you have to but .... I now don’t have to.

    Best £30 mod I believe I / you will ever do

    Hope that helps

    Moose

  18. That’s very helpful Moose, thank you.
    I’m wondering if they may help the infamous stalling pulling away.
    I shall purchase some forthwith. Cheers.
