I have done the EVO rearset conversion so to make a long story sort of short,
I ordered all the parts I thought I needed to swap out the ducati batwing rearsets from my 696 to the way more attractive EVO 1100 rearsets. I found one other guy in the US that did it and said it was a direct swap and took him all of ten minutes. I went to the dealer and cross referenced some parts and took a look at both bikes and on a logically assumed they would fit on my 696. Well after 2 days of wrenching, one trip to my local Chrysler dealer to use their hydraulic press, and a lot of messing around I had them on.
The rear sets look fantastic and feel a bit lower than the stock sets. I am happy I did this mod but I learned a few things on the way that I should share in case some of you want to try the same.
Parts: Left and right rearset, left and right heel guards, small bracket for raising the brake reservoir up an inch, EVO 1100 brake pedal, bolts for the master cylinder, bolts for the heel guards, 6mm bolt to hold the reservoir on the bracket, mat black paint from parts store (for the shifter pedal), zip ties.
Special Tools: a hydraulic press for getting the bushings out of the large hole in the stock rearsets and then into the EVO rearset.
Time: 6 hours working carefully and still managed to break a spring
Cost: $500 for the parts, $60 for the hydraulic press time at the shop, $10 for paint, $25 for the spring. $5 for zip ties to contain the brake lines. (I'm not sure I saved a whole lot of money compared to aftermarket rearsets like Woodcraft.)
Notes: The master cylinder is a direct fit and has an adjustable plunger, but the brake lines are a tight fit. I had to loosen the banjo bolts at both end of the line to redirect the lines to make some slack. I also removed one of the clips that hold the line to the swing-arm as I needed the slack to get the parts to fit properly. The reservoir line needed to be cut and redirected. I had to paint the shifter pedal as an EVO replacement was 100 bucks. The brake light still works with the rear brake pedal (unlike woodcraft). As for passenger pegs... who rides on the back of a Monster? No need for them at all. Anyone who want to hang out with me better have a bike of their own cause they aint riding b!tch on my bike!
