Hi Guys, just picked up my 899, been working on getting one for a while after my Daytona 675 was stolen.

First time Ducati owner and wow this thing amazing! The grunt is just undeniably infectious.

I have noticed the bike is a little hard to hold on to sometimes and the pegs are pretty slippery. I plan on upgrading those.

I wanted to ask you guys do all of your handle bars when turned to the right hit the fairing? With mine when I turn the handlebars max to the right the right clip on hits the fairing but when you turn it max to the left it doesn't.... so strange. Would love to know if this is standard.

Look forward to learning and sharing with you guys.

I am sure that is not normal. I my bars have never touched my fairing nor has the levers.

Also, welcome to the forum. Where are you located?

Thanks

Thanks for the feedback. I will have to talk to the dealer about the bar issue. Possible they didn't install it properly. Yes I'm from Los Angeles, CA

Im not sure, but I'm starting to get the feeling that either all the people on the site are from CA or the Ducati dealers in CA are the worts in the planet...

Ya I guess there aren't that many ducati certified mechanics in Los Angeles. But I'm guessing someone who didn't know what they were doing assembled my bike. Called the dealership and they said the bars should definitely not touch so I have to take it in. They said it would likely be a small adjustment though. Just makes me worried something else was carelessly assembled.

Im sorry to say it but im seeing a lot of problems on the site are from CA owners. I think there is a couple from the UK and one person from Australia.

It sucks to have that feeling especially when it's a Ducati, an expensive bike.
Hopefully after these things are worked out there won't be anything else to put up with.

Welcome! What dealer did you get the bike from?
