I recently got the cycle cat dbr13's and really like them. You can see them at:
http://www.cyclecat.com/dbr3-1.htm

I don't have their rearsets so I can't comment on them, but the clip-ons are really nice. I got blemished ones from their shop and can't even tell how they are blemished. The only way that I can tell that they are blem's is by the x's stamped on the bottom of them.

Hope this helps

No offense guys, but what is the obsession with cycle cats? I've never heard of the brand before visiting this site, but every search I did on the forums for clip-ons or rearsets mentioned cycle cats and nothing else. I know there has got to be other brands out there. There stuff is extremely over-priced and has cheesy styling in my opinion. Do they just charge a lot because their products are ducati specific and they think they can price gouge because of the high price of the bikes themselves?

Does anyone use Vortex, Woodcraft, Helibars, or Protek? Those are brands I'm somewhat familiar with and I can actually get Vortex pretty cheap from work(bike shop).

Moto Wheels sells what appears to be a more than decent set which also comes with a bit of a riser.

Actually, I was just in here searching for info on that set as one of the regulars here did a photo install post for them.

They come in red, silver, gold and perhaps other colors as well and can adjust back and forth plus a bit of machining on the riser could change the angle too.

Good price too.

You can buy them now, or buy them later after trying others. No rush. ;D

I wasnt trying to bash.. just curious as to what the hoopla was all about. If they are really that much better, then cool.

Question: do the vortex clip-ons interfere with the headlight bracket?

wonderjosh: The CycleCats ARE that way better. Nothing else comes close on adjustability, the quality is great, and they are visual jewelry for the bike.

Expensive, yes, very.

But I have looked at multiple solutions for my S4, and amgoing to buy the CycleCats.

there are a BUNCH of options out there for rearsets, but for clipons (if you intend to mount UNDER the top yoke), i think c'cats are the only way to go. i was previously running the ducati performance bar risers myself. very nicely machined and very sturdy. _ i _ managed to squeeze an absurd deal on them but wouldn't pay retail on them. c'cats are a much better bargain (if you can call it that). and as mentioned, there are a couple "blemished" units for sale for short money on cyclecat.com in the "catshop".
for rearsets, it depends on what you're after. if you want a simple, lightweight setup with a bit of adjustability in the pegs, go with the S&P's (www.ducatipipemod.com/s4/mods/rearsets)
if you want a very lightweight setup with TONS of adjustability, go with the c'cats!
otherwise, there's a bunch more options available for less money:

my vote's for the cyclecats if you can afford them. just throwing out a few more options for comparison's sake.
