Hi all. I just got a '15 M821, kinda dove in blind. I didn't expect to dislike the stock bar positioning and angle as much as I do. Buhgaboo, any chance of posting more pics with different angles of the Woodcraft setup? I like the clip-on look and lower more swept positioning but not sure about all that clamp/riser business. Maybe Renthal superbike bars are good enough (vs stock, which is too high and outward for my tastes and comfort)?

Glad to post some more pics...the woodcrafts' versatility sets them apart from other bars...and grinding down the index pins on the switch gear never hit me as a good idea either...with these you can dial in the controls precisely how you want them and tighten it down and they will never move...for clarity the angle of the bars is fixed but the lever angle can be adjusted...also...you can flip the riser plate to make it more upright if you were inclined but in fairness I started to on a multi-state road trip and just said it wasn't worth the effort...you need to loosen the headlight to really make it happen and it was two screws too many to bother with at the time...but it is possible

On a side note...bar end mirrors are amazing...I've nearly crashed twice just looking at the sky in them...they don't vibrate...I can see directly behind me in each of them...only downside is that they're curved so the cars are really small...still can't quite make out if it's a police car but it's a huge improvement over the stock ones which vibrated at any rpm

I'll need a front axle, but I'm waiting for the carbon wheels to be refinished, in case that I need to adapt it. I have access to a lathe so no worries there.
For the wheels I wanted to get the same Ducati Performance stickers, but couldn't find them anywhere. Any ideas? I'd like to fit them now, so I can spray another coat of lacquer over them

Another real important thing, I need the TFT bord computer. I didn't find it on ebay and from the dealership is about 850 euro.
AliExpress has the stickers your looking for I believe...run a search for Ducati performance stickers...they range from BLAM! to ahem...lol

Those are some sharp wheels...instead of drilling holes for a riser plate...any thoughts on going full clipon?

thanks Bughaboo,
i looked on aliexpress and only found 2 decent ones:
https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Duca...AbTest=ae803_3

and

https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Duca...7-ef76bbd4df75

i ordered thesse from Amazon.fr
https://www.amazon.fr/gp/product/B07...?ie=UTF8&psc=1 so far, but they are cheap anyway, i can always change my mind

i thought about clipons, but i think it would make the bike too uncomfortable on longer trips. Lowest i would go would be the rizoma drag bar, renthal fatbar. those woodcrafts look good as well, but i'd need some space to mount the phone, the remote control for the helmet intercom and eventually a garage remote.

I need to buy the rear stoplight
i like the NRC fender eliminator, but DAMN 260 euro...
https://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/...ti-monster-821

I found the original one for 50 euro

and this one between
https://www.ebay.fr/itm/LED-Ruecklic...-/132426423529

but i'm afraid that it's gonna look cheap. I mounted one on my old Z800 and i liked it, but that's a whole other level of bike.

Also, for both the chinese and the NRC ones, it states that they are for 2014-2017, 2018 not being mentioned. Is it any different?
Opinions?

I also want to mount the licence plate on a wheel support. i think it looks much cleaner
does the one from the M1200 fit?

I think they just reversed the connectors on the 2018 m/f to f/m or vice versa...looking at a picture of one should help...as for cheap anything they generally need some finessing to get to work and some artistry to look right

i guess i'll buy these
https://www.ebay.fr/itm/132426423529?ul_noapp=true
i simply dont want to pay 260 euro for the nrc ones.

has anyone tried aftermarket radiators?
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/New-Ducat...QAAOSwhEVbJSBn

what do you think? Could it solve the overheating problem? My blood pressure rose quite a bit when the fans were pushing hot air towards my thighs while standing at the traffic lights

I think you will see zero gains from the aftermarket in terms of cooling....but it is a new cheap readily available product...I personally would hold out for a used unit...but if forced to buy it...it would at least perform like the OEM...looks like the mounting points are all there...as for rear anything...I can't see it...I defer you to your slower friends...what do they prefer...lol

Radiators should be the same...the rear tire plate mounts to the swing arm on the 1200...the 821 doesn't have the same mounting locations
