Ducati Monster with Panigale Clip ons

ever since i bought this bike i wanted to put clip ons on it. i knew it was gonna be uncomfortable but it was gonna look cool. afterall if i wanna be comfortable i'll just ride the harley

the main issue on getting clip ons to fit the monster 1200S is that there are not many options due to the 57mm fork diameter. after measuring around the only other bike that has forks that big is the base 1199/1299. so that opened up clip on options. i ended up finding an opened but never installed Woodcraft 12-0157 Black Clipons set for base 899, 1199 and 1299 Panigale (57mm forks)



Since this woodcraft are 2 piece, you dont have to remove the forks to install them.


installation was a breeze. I just removed the headlight, removed the handlebar assemblies and installed the clip ons. then drilled the holes for the controls on the clip on bars and i was good to go!



Now the hard part is the headlight. since clearances are so tight I had to trim the headlight bracket to make room for the clip on assembly. I cut about 3mm in and about 7mm long. sanded it to gave it shape and make it look OEM then repainted the assembly . as you can see from the pics it looks like it came out of the factory like that! I used wrinkle black paint.



once the bracket was done, everything went back in nice an easy. there was some rerouting and wiggling cables around but nothing too hard.

and here is the final product:

I like the look of it, not sure how I would like riding it though.

Not too bad, but just with how high the tank sits it doesn't look completely right

Looks great! Do the bars make any contact with the frame or tank at full lock?

No no contact. There is still about 2 in of clearance between the bars and the tank at full lock

Completely the opposite of what I'd do; ape hangers for me, all the way!

Oh, and I'd put a batwing on your Slim as well, but that's just me...

Nice mod! How does it ride now? Is it still easy to toss around?

Do you have photos with a rider on the bike? Do you feel rear-sets would add to the new driving position?
