This is the rear I bought.
The sticker is wrong as I found out .
It seems to match my 899 front.

I did not purchase a front rim yet .

I posted a picture below. I have not purchased the front yet

That will do the trick. You don't need the front as they are the same. I did the conversion using a regular 1199 wheel. Looking to upgrade to lighter wheels though.

By the way, does anyone know if I can powder coat marchesini wheels?

I understand that the powder coating must be monitored very closely to ensure that the temperature during the baking process remains within the tolerances of the forged aluminum or else it will degrade the strength of the wheel. Make sure that the vendor you choose has extensive experience with motorcycle wheels and not just cast or steel car wheels.

So they put a Marchesini sticker on a base cast 1199 wheel? The 899 wheels are OEM Enkei.

I would weigh it to make absolute certain.

Thats a base wheel.

The S/R wheels are the "crows foot" type spokes. (S had red rim strip, R didnt have strip.)

You must have the dealer plug your bike into the DDS or Ducati Diag System and then the upmap key plugs in to that and tells the machine you are licensed to unlock the RACE map on the ECU.

There is no download as it is preloaded and just gets activated.

This is true regarding the RapidBike. It will take some miles on the bike to readjust. I understand that having the RACE map just gets you closer so the module doesn't take as long to tune it in. Also, I thought that RapidBike has pre configurations that get you closer in to narrow the fine tuning.

Make sure you install the filter if you haven't already.

Do you think it's worth paying a dealer to install my upmap? If not I could just sell the MAP and let my Rapid Bike do it's thing.
