I love my Ducabike rearsets! One of the best mods. Absolute PITA to install though!

Loving that Competitiion Werkes too!

I bought them from Ducabike on eBay for $975. I saw the YouTube install video and said screw this! I paid to have them installed at my local dealer which cost another $300. Worth every penny! Heading to the track tomorrow to play with my new toys!

If you have have feet larger than a men's size 6US, I consider them a necessity.

They just clean up the bike in general for me as well.

Like you, I paid someone to install them as well. Removing the OEM's actually requires a special Ducati lock nut.

Love mine as well. Size 12 boots and really made the bike more comfortable. Also purchased off ebay and received them pretty quick. I didn't find the install too difficult, watch the you tube that's been linked before.

Perfect timing for this thread! Mine just arrived yesterday and I was planning to tackle the install myself this weekend.... But if there is a special Ducati lock-nut involved and maybe some rear brake bleeding, it might be best to have the shop do it. I think that's what I'll do. Has anyone here done the install themselves? Is it even possible, haha?

Also, what position is everybody setting them at? I'm thinking most up and rear for a first try. I scraped my shift lever a couple of times and I think raising it all 1-2 cm will solve that. I plan to start tracking this bike too, so putting my feet more sporty is where I want to go for now. I'm going to measure the height of my stock position (lever to ground) and then the Ducabike's once installed, for comparison. I'll probably eye-ball the horizontal shift, unless there is a good datum to measure that from. I also plan to weigh the new and stock parts, for comparison. I think this mod has to drop at least 5 lbs. We'll see.

I hand-loose assembled the sets last night and they do look pretty awesome!

The only special tool is a couple large hex sockets, the largest of which comes with the rear sets. Shifter side is easy, brake side does require bleeding. The trick to that is removing the rear wheel, remove the caliper and put it on top of the rotor so that the bleeder is on the top. After that, bleeding the system is straight forward. Video shows it pretty well. http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x2sxjwb The whole thing takes a couple hours.

I have mine set in the highest vertical position with the pegs set at the 9 o'clock position.
