Hi,

Just a bit of info which has just come to light with regards to the 959.
Whilst building a 959 racer for the UK one make series it's been discovered by one of the shops that the 2017 version is different from the 2016 model.

Turns out the 2016 version had restricted clearance between the handlebars and the tank on full lock so Ducati for 2017 fitted different head stock bushes which increases the head angle giving greater clearance. Obviously this then effects the geometry of the bike and the handling.

Not sure whether the effect is for the better or worse.

This has been confirmed as the bushes in the parts list for the 2016 and 2017 models are different.

Just a bit of info.

cheers

Martin
