• Technique - Panigale Rearset Mounting



    Here are some pictures of the fitting of the Panigale rearset. The fitting is quite self explanatory. Make sure you install the 3 spacer rings in between the parts.

    You can use all the bolts but will most likely have some left over as the supplier usually adds some extra. You can use the 4 original frame bolts to mount the set to the frame or the ones which are in the package.

    When the final setup is according too your needs, loosen the bolts of those parts you don't want to lose while riding and glue them with Loctite (Especially the footpegs). The Panigale has a tendency of working loose any bolt on the bike due to the vibrations! As these parts are made of alumium special notice to the torque settings of the bolts. If overtorqued the thread will damage. Regularly check the set after mounting.

    General torque settings should be: M5-5Nm, M6-10Nm, M8-25 Nm, M12-30 Nm.


    Remove right ducati triangel subframe behind the clutch housing for easier mounting of the brake set.

    Hardest part is the fitting of the brake switch. You have to remove it from the original rearset by twisting it out of the M 8 x 1 threadhole. Therefor partly remove the tierips that hold the wire in position along the frame. This is to make sure you'll have enough free length of the wire to turn the switch freely for removing and fitting it back to the new rearset. The pump is mounted to the subframe bracket with the supplied bolts. (picture 3)

    Use the pushbolt for the brakeswitch from the original pedal. Place it in the new pedal.

    Fit the original brake pushrod to the brake lever. Use original or supplied bolt. in the above picture the pedal is set tight with a traditional hex bolt. Use the round head type instead as shown above. (Either bolt can be used) Just make sure that the pedals runs freely when the bolts is tightened. If the pedal does not run freely, change the inner filling to one of the other in the package. One of the small fillers is slightly longer than the other one.

    Place ring in between the the pedal and the bearing.


    Hardest part is the fitting of the pushrod. Us the small ring on the pushrod as shown below. Choose the correct hole for normal or reverse shifting. (Compare to the old original rearset shift pedal for reference)

    Afterwards fit the pedal, again place the second largest ring between pedal and bearing. Make sure you have the ring with the bush on one side towards the bearing. If not the bearing might not run freely. Then place the subframe on the main frame and place the footbracket to the subframe.

    Finally some more pictures:

    For all the customers who do not tighten the bolts sufficiently with locktite and loose the parts, here are the dimensions of the rings to be fitted between the levers. At the moment I'm working on spare parts from the factory but a friendly engineer could make this easily for you on a lath. Probably faster too.....
