Ok, here I go: Awkward mode on...

I have big feet....
So getting my left foot between the shifter to shift up sometime is/looks somewhat clumsy.

I am thinking to buy aftermarket rearsets by - for instance - RIZOMA

https://www.motovationusa.com/ducati-panigale-899-1199-rrc-rearsets-per214b-rizoma.html

They are a bit adjustable (believe you can make them a bit wider to be able to get your foot in-between more easy).

I don't like the reverse (race) shifting that comes with many of these sets. That is definitely not what I am looking for.

Any idea's guys?

Awkward mode off.

That's gonna be a rough road you're going down because not many know the difference in position from stock. I suggest you find a rearset you like the looks of, contact the manufacturer and see what the offset is of the peg. That will tell you if you're going in the right direction. Most only move 1/2" or so back and/or up.

Thanks, might be already be just what I need.
Good suggestion.
Any chance anyone here on the forum would have a custom rearset and could measure the distance between foot peg and shifter?

@Pascal - let me clarify my previous comment - the movement of 1/2" doesn't extend the distance from lever to the peg - it moves the center of the entire setup

so if the stock setup is 0,0 on an X,Y axis the aftermarket moves it to .5,1.0 for example - the distance from the peg to the lever is still the same

Hmmm, ok.
But if I look at the image of such a rearset, it looks like it actually is adjustable in 2 places, which makes me think that the distance can be adjusted.
What do you think Dingo?

I have these rearsets installed on my bike. The peg is independent of the lever assembly which will offer you the adjustability you are looking for. I cannot guarantee that the distance between the toe peg and the foot peg at the furthest point will be exactly what you require or expect, but you will be able to customize the positioning and angle of the lever on either side.

GREAT!
Happy to hear this.
This was what I was hoping for.
So you actually have the very same set? Are you satisfied with the set? Why did you install it if I may ask?

As an added bonus, the needlepoint bearings make them buttery smooth compared to stock. They shift seemlessly and I have not experienced or heard of any issues related to the DQS.

They come ready to be custom fitted, so the bolts are not torqued down. To anyone interested in purchasing and installing these, I would advise that once you get the positioning to your liking, Loctite everything.

@sinjin
Can you please share a link to the exact set you ordered?
Picture of the result on your bike would be nice bonus (ok I am pushing my luck).

I wanted to have the ability to adjust the lever angle and they are beautifully crafted.

The pegs on the 899 have to be replaced as the stock are too slippery, so I went with replacing the rearsets.

At the time, they were the PER214B that you attached to your original post. However, I believe that the part# has since been updated.

Thanks! When they arrived at my dealer to be installed, they had only just been released and quickly became quite popular.

If I were to purchase another Panigale, 1299 or R for example, I would have the same kit, no question. I had originally wanted these for my RR, however they were not yet available due to the change to up and down shifting.

Last question: do you use the reverse (race) shifting? Or regular shifting?

I have regular shifting on both bikes.

Edit: ask as many ?'s as you like and I will do my best to answer them...

@Pascal, what size shoe do you wear?

So is your problem more-so that shifting is hard because the lever is short? Or is it because the adjustment on the shift-rod isn't enough to get it to where you want it?


Most rear sets specify what orientations you can set it to or if they can switch between both. I know that Woodcraft has two versions for normal and reverse, and many others have the ability to switch between them both.

While those Rizoma sets do have adjustability over stock, there are sets out there that allow further adjustment. You should find that majority of the sets on the market are offered in "standard" shift configuration, with GP shift being optional on some.

His generously sized boot does not fit between the gap made by the toe peg and foot peg; he does not want to switch to a GP shift.

The Rizoma kit allows the tow pegs to be shifted slightly more to the rear and the lever can be removed and the angle adjusted. I believe he is hoping this will allow him the flexibility to comfortably position the toe of his boot without impeding his style of riding position.

That is exactly the problem and what I am hoping to solve with the aftermarket rearsets indeed. To be able to slightly move the toe peg a bit back and the actual shifter a slight bit forward. This will probably just be enough to fit my clumsy sized foot in-between :)

By the way: my shoe size is 12.5 (Europe: 47).

Thank you for your concise info Mr. Sinjin. The buttery smooth feel description had me almost sold just for that . I bought some track boots went for a test ride and was having problems up shifting from 2nd to 3rd . Really sucked when high in the revs . Wear 11.5 so I fear my problem might be similar to Mr. Pascal.
Would be very interested in your thoughts after using the rearsets for a few days Mr. Pascal.
Have an awesome ride this weekend fellow sportsmen . Go fast , stay safe . In the order you see fit .
Thanks Ciao

@Aldo

I did not order the custom rearsets yet.
First want to put some more miles on the odometer before I do any costly mods. Replacing the rearsets will set one back around $500 - $1000. I really think they are worth the the money, but just want to get some more time in the saddle.

I also like these custom rearsets:

SATO RACING | Rear Sets - DUCATI 899 / 1199 / 1299 Panigale

Big question is: what set gives the most adjustability?

Will update here when I got them ordered/installed.
