  • Soft Grips Panigale and Carbon Parts

    Anyone have any advice on some soft bar grips for a panigale?

    Also anyone have any contacts or websites for carbon fibre parts at decent prices?

    Carbon Fibre, Cheap, decent, reliable... pick any two.

    But if you want carbon bling...

      Carbon bits belong on a Panigale S or R. Anything less you may as well use 3M carbon wrap.

        Is that "if you have to ask How Much..? You can't afford it.." ?

          Thanks mate, I was looking more into the "bling" carbon bits like exhaust shield, tyre hugger and the like.

          It never hurt anyone to ask for a better price

          Im just chasing the look, but I want it to be clean. Hadn't thought of wrap, might look into it. cheers

            No. The base model and the S would benefit in equal measure with carbon wheels (as one example). Remember the S
            has the same motor/same output with the key differences being LED headlights, electronic suspension, front mudguard
            and different wheels.

            Domino make a variety of grips which look cool in opinion.

            FullSix make a lot of carbon fibre parts for the Panigale in a few different spec ranges (Sportline, Streetline etc.).

            I would advise against a carbon fibre exhaust shield (unless you ride sparingly) as it will not stay looking mint for long
            given the epic levels of heat the rear loop pumps out. I would also advice against fake carbon fibre on any bike based on principle
            (but of course, each to his own).
            Spiral out, keep going...

              [MENTION=5430]Stu[/MENTION] if I were me (and I am) then I'd be flicking my base Panigale and picking up an S before I started adding expensive carbon bits. Dollar for dollar I reckon the electronic suspension, LED headlights, lighter wheels etc add more both in wank factor and riding enjoyment. No worries if you disagree

              The R needs the carbon to combat the smaller engine capacity.

                motowheels.com, www.shift-tech-carbon.com. Is there much black plastic on a panigale? I'd do something with the exhaust before putting on any Italian Chrome.

                    Because carbon fibre swingarms and wheels aren't bling?

                    Also unfortunately when modding bikes, much like when purchasing them, Italian is usually 1.5 - 2 x anything from Japan... for a reason that can yet be explained with any sense of logic.

                      Try 3x just for oem parts then theres aftermarket.....DP stands for double penetration

                      I got my DP rearsets new for 600 they retail for 1.7K

                      I miss modding the bike.... too expensive..even simple sprocket changes

                        It's retarded, I recently changed the wheels on the ZX10R from Carrozzeria to Marchesini, and needed a sprocket. Knowing that Ducatis come wiht Marchesini as stock I figured I could pop in and grab a rear sprocket.

                        Could I fuck.

                        They have bespoke wheels and sprockets and was told the rear sprocket was $395?!?!?! I thought that one of the two of us just had a major stroke.

                        In the end I got a new DiD Gold chain and Supersprox sprocket from the USA and Japan and had them fitted for less.
