Guys,

I am looking at buying these woodcraft rear sets with reverse/GP shift -

Ducati Panigale 899/1199 Adjustable Complete Rear Set Kit

I had a couple of questions on typical installation:
1 - Does buying a reverse/GP shift require any additional components to with with the DQS?

2 - I read this in the installation instructions for woodcraft -
"Please note that these components are intended and approved for racing use only. As such, the footpegs are solid-mount and provisions for brake light switches and brake pedal return springs are generally not provided."

Sounds like bollocks to me, especially with the use of the 'generally not provided'... they seem unsure.

Any help gratefully requested.

Harry.

1) no the Woodcraft kit utilizes the stock quick-shifter switch for both standard shift pattern as well as reverse (GP) shift pattern. Their reverse shift kit utilizes a pivot-mounted shift pedal to allow that, similar to the Ducati Performance rear set kit.
2) with racing rear sets, you just need to use a banjo bolt brake pressure sensor since there is nowhere to mount the stock mechanical brake light switch.

Thanks Jarel, really helpful. I just bought some tank pads from you guys about an hour ago!!

You don't happen to sell the woodcraft rearsets or have any other recommendations I could buy from you guys?

Sure we do, there's pretty much nothing for a Ducati that we don't sell since that's all we do being an exclusive Ducati dealer. You can see much of what we have currently for the 899 on our web site here:
Ducati Omaha 899 Panigale Store

But we also have lots of things that are not on the web site, so you can always give us a call or shoot a message over and we'll hook you up.

P.S. - I just sent a big check to the owners of the forum yesterday to set our store up as an "official" vendor here, so we'll now have a forum discount code available for you all to use to get special forum pricing on most items, the code is 899FORUM. You just enter that code in the shopping cart system when checking out and it will apply the discount.

I figure if I'm hanging out here all the time anyway since this is the bike I ride and I love chatting with fellow owners, might as well have an "official" presence so there aren't any ambiguities. :cool:

Hey Jarelj,

Is this offer available to non-US residents? Just wondering if you would ship products to Australia as if you do, then you might have just found another customer.

Cheers,
Oni.

Sure, some products we can ship overseas, there are a few that have restriction on them where we can't. Just PM me what you're looking for and I'll see what we can do!

I bought the upper and lower radiator guard from you a few days ago. I appreciate all the good info you put forth on the forum!

As for the rear brake switch I just followed the wire and unplugged/removed it from my rear brake setup... Prob not street legal, but I never press it anyway!

Yeah I can't think of a scenario when you'd ever be on the rear brake and not also be on the front brake at the same time, so probably not much of a risk there.

Hi Jarel,

I'm in the market for rearsets and have narrowed it down to the Rizoma RRC or the Woodcraft. I was told that the Woodcraft provide more grip for the rider but most will probably agree that the Rizoma's are more pleasing to the eye. I don't do any track days so looks play a small role in my decision. Then reading this thread I see that the Woodcraft don't work with the factory rear brake sensor. As you pointed out, it would be pretty rare that you are on the rear brakes without the front, but part of me is very anal retentive with stuff like that and wants everything to work as designed. With all this in mind, can you point out some pros and cons of the two rearsets that the average person might not know without some experience with them?

You just need to use the banjo bolt pressure switch that I mentioned earlier and then any rearsets will activate the rear brake light correctly. As far as aesthetics go, yes the Rizoma kit has more "bling" factor, the Woodcrafts are more race-focused in their design. The Woodcrafts are stronger with grippier pegs, and easily repaired with affordable spare parts.

Hey guys,

Installed my rearsets last weekend and am just in the process of getting my bike prepped for a track day and noticed that my brake lights are not working when using the front brake lever.
The rearsets I'm using need an aftermarket switch which I haven't installed yet, not sure if that matters.

Does removing the standard rear brake switch have any impact on this? Is it a linked circuit? I haven't cut it yet, just zip tied it to stop it moving.

Only other thing I have done is removed the tail tidy and mirrors. Pretty sure it was working when I rode last weekend.

Any help appreciated.

That's odd, the circuit for the front and rear brakes are independent of each other.

Yeh that is what I thought, ended up working it out.

The rear brake switch is a push button which when disconnected is out which equals on. So I've managed to tape it down and get the lights working until I replace it.

Right, you will need a pressure switch that will replace the banjo bolt on the master cylinder. When I installed it, it was a PITA to get the air out of the line.
