Hi all

Anyone bought / fitted any engine or clutch protectors to their 899 yet ? ..... to cover rather than wholesale replace. Any photos ?

Nothing is available yet. The only option is to get the magnesium side case then you can use anything that works on the 1199. Don't believe the Ducati website either. I got the one listed for the 899 and it doesn't fit.

Doesn't look like that R&G one covers a whole lot. This is the first pic I've seen that looks like it's on the aluminum case cover though, so maybe I'll snag one.

Only thing I see that wouldn't blend well with this cover is that the Carbon Fiber from Ducati is so beautiful and has a matte finish not so glossy or shiny. I have the fender front and rear plus heel guards coming if those match the rest. It would bug the **** out of me. Their Carbon Fiber is amazing....

It doesn't seem like those kinds of sliders really protect much more than the engine case itself. The post type sliders by Sato look like they'd protect part of the fairing and brake pedal and possibly the tank.

Anyone know if the Lightech engine protector fit the 899. Every site that sells them claimed they fit. But I can't seem to get a respond or find a pic with it on an 899.

I'm wondering the same thing… do you know of an importer? They're around $500 with shipping to the US. :eek::eek::eek:

Thanks,

for $500 u might as well put the 1199 magnesium engine cover on and get a real clutch guard like woodcraft, not to mention how much easier the 1199 cover makes servicing the clutch

How does that silicone hold up?
Also, was it a pain to install the 2 piece magnesium cover?
Thinking about a slipper now…

Thanks,

B
I would have no concerns about the silicone holding up, it will stay on until you decide to remove the covers and then you can scrape the silicone off. They use a clear silicone adhesive that's heat-resistant and waterproof, it's the type used to seal up aquariums.

Installing the engine cover is not difficult, it's a complete replacement so you basically remove the entire side cover from the engine and replace it with the magnesium one. There's no real benefit to the mag cover other than a little bit of weight savings (only .7 lbs), and easier access to the clutch. But in reality, you don't need to get to a wet clutch that often anyway, so I'd say it's of marginal value for most people. As opposed to the value of a slipper clutch, which will be something you'll get some functional benefit from.
