Woodcraft Rearsets Ducati 899 / 1199 / 1299 Panigale Woodcraft designs and builds their rearsets based on three key areas: function, durability and ease of repair. First, the rearsets must function beyond all else. They must provide the adequate ground clearance and vital feedback that a fast rider needs to push his or her machine to the limit. Second, they must be able to take a beating and keep on going. These rearsets are machined from 6061-T6 billet aluminum, resulting in a rearset that is more than twice as durable as an OEM rearset. In the event of a crash, the fixed high-grip knurled footpegs act as a secondary frame slider to keep the swingarm and mid-frame off of the tarmac. Lastly, many Woodcraft Rearsets utilize a 3-piece design that provides ease of assembly and repair. The fewer parts there are, the less that can go wrong. Features: Eccentric adjustable high-grip knurled footpegs Eccentric adjustable high-grip knurled toe pegs Stock and 1 up and 1/2 back footpeg position Hard Teflon-coated brake and shift pedal pivot ensures a super smooth action Includes all necessary mounting hardware Black anodized finish Optional Woodcraft Folding Toe Piece (sold separately) Optional Woodcraft Brake Light Switch available (sold separately) Note: Woodcraft Rearsets are designed for track use only.

My previous rearsets were prettier and more streamlined, but lacked stability and durability. These woodcraft rearsets mean business. The pegs are giant and rigid, and the shift mechanism (gp shift) is smooth and solid. These may not be the prettiest, but they certainly aren't the ugliest. That said, I believe they are the most performance minded rearsets out there. I've yet to be disappointed by the Woodcraft line.

Zero Gravity Corsa Windscreen Ducati 899 / 1199 Panigale The Zero Gravity Corsa Windscreen has been designed from the ground up, in collaboration with professional racers from around the world, to provide the best wind protection while maintaining excellent aerodynamics. Slightly larger than the Zero Gravity Double Bubble, the Corsa Windscreen creates a larger pocket for riders to get behind. The Corsa is best suited for road racers and tall riders that require wind protection at high speeds for a long duration of time. All Zero Gravity Windscreens feature optically clear acrylic that absorbs vibration, resists cracking and are fabricated using highly specialized vacuum forming techniques, similar to those used to form aircraft canopies. The result is a virtually distortion free windscreen with the finest optical clarity on the market. Additionally, light scratches can be buffed out of acrylic windscreens as opposed to polycarbonate windscreens that can be permanently marred. Features: Tall aggressive shape Shock resistant Vacuum formed Distortion free Made in the USA

Once you figure out how to remove and replace the fairings on the Panigale, it's pretty easy. As others have said, it's not the product's fault, it's the design of the Panigale. I think I could do it in under an hour now. It's worth it, as this windscreen is super rigid and very much cuts the wind. Don't like the stickers so much, but they can be easily removed.

This is a wonderful product. It simply does exactly what it says it does. I paired it with a pair of Trophy Vintage pants, because the Trophy pants fit very low rise. It does a wonderful job keeping my pants in the right place. If you're thinking about the Trophy pants, go ahead and spend the extra on this belt, and you will not be sorry.

 Dainese Trophy Vintage Leather Pants
Dainese Trophy Vintage Leather Pants
Dainese Trophy Vintage Leather Pants The road that runs beneath the seat, the open spaces of the surrounding prairie, the pulsing of the pistons shaking arms and body, the reflection of lightning on chrome engine, the roar of the motorcycle. All these things gave birth to the idea that became the Dainese Trophy Vintage Pants. Constructed from cowhide leather, the Trophy Vintage Pants are designed to be comfortable even after wearing for hours, thanks to their ergonomic cut, Sanitized liner, and Pro Shape soft protectors. Protection Pro Shape soft protectors certified to Standard EN 1621.1/97 on the knees Ergonomics and Comfort Vintage cowhide leather Inserts in elasticated fabric Belt loops Sanitized lining Other 2 outside pockets on front 2 outside pockets on the back Pants are not hemmed

These are great looking pants. They are not so technical and race-fit that you couldn't wear them into a coffee shop or restaurant, so they're great for around town and casual riding. The protection is minimal, as there is only a small amount of padding on the knee, so if you're looking for something to drag a knee with, look elsewhere. They are very "cafe" inspired in their looks, yet still functional for fun riding, offering the skin protection that good Dainese leather offers. The seams are great, and the leather is amazing, as is to be expected from Dainese.
One complaint about the fit is that the waist is very low rise...they fit down low around your hips, so they tend to creep downward if you're not wearing a belt. Other than that, they are wonderful, and exactly what I was looking for in terms of a compromise between functionality, style, and safety.
Note: The pants come unhemmed. You will have to take them to a quality seamstress that can work leather before they are ready to wear.
