Need Explanation...

Brought my M821 home a couple weeks ago and I don't know why but this bugs the hell out of me. I thought it was just my bike but I've looked at multiple pictures of others on the web and they're all similar. Why did Ducati leave the left bar exposed slightly?

Just slide the grip down

Well yes..I understand the solution which also creates a gap between controls and grip. I'm not sure I have enough length in clutch cable and wire loom to slide over as well. I was more or less asking why Ducati did this?

Ask Ducati? Ask the dealership where you bought it? But joining a forum just to ask this seems odd.
Like Buhgaboo said, just slide the grip down. In fact replace them with some better grips...

Alright, alright....lets set something straight. I didn't "join a forum just to ask". I joined because I enjoy the subject and I learn from all of you in here. We all have something in common, we enjoy 2 wheels and an open road. I had a question so I asked it. I didn't expect to get chastised for it. Go ahead and ridicule if you wish for what you deem as a dumb question. I was curious so I asked.

The actual answer boils down to manufacturing...some tolerances get buggered in the setups and with low production numbers not much time for corrections....I had a problem with the radiator mount on my 2015 that eventually got fixed in the upcoming models...with the grip I think it's something that was overlooked...looks good on paper but in practice the grip slides and fills the gap...it is what it is and with new bars you can modify the holes to suit

My point is you asked a question that can ONLY be answered by the manufacturer or their agents. The members of the forum didn't design and build your motorcycle

Maybe it was done when the dealer uncrated and prepped the bike? Looking at "official" 821 pictures, I don't think that alignment was the intent.

Sato Racing machined billet aluminum weighted bar ends... they look great, solve the bar end problem, and help with vibration. These have been on my bike for 4 years and still look great...

The bar ends made a huge difference...the vibrations were greatly reduced and it did make a very small difference when the bike is leaned over...off topic here also but I am looking at buying the new Multistrada 1260S and trying to decide if I will keep the 821 also...

The power difference between the two is night and day...I love my monster (wish it could lean more) but the motor in the 1260 is 50% bigger...even if you kept the 821 you'd forget about it....

That it what many have told me....I will likely buy the Multi in a few months and use the 821 as a trade in...the only thing about the multi I don't like are the tires. I want something that is 100% street with more corner grip...

Only way I could keep up was traffic and really late braking...the 1200 just pulls away...away....away.....
