Hello everyone;

I bought a used 2017 Ducati 959 about 3 months ago with 900 miles and I've been enjoying it to its fullest (currently at 3300 miles). Recently I notice that my tires are up for a change and I want to take that opportunity to make some improvement to the bike.

1. Upgrade to carbon fiber wheels, I decided to go for THYSSENKRUP wheels since they are the only ones in stock, every other manufacturer has a 12 weeks build period.
2. Upgrade brakes (Brembo SuperSport 320 on front and Galfer Solid Mount Wave Brake Rotor on rear)
3. EK 520 chain (I heard the stock chain is not that great) and Supersprox Stealth 520 Sprocket (because the OEM might not fit the wheels)
4. Some cosmetic parts
-Ducabike chain adjusters
-CNC Racing rear wheel nut
-CNC Racing front wheel nut
-CNC racing rear sprocket nuts

I wanted to get feedback from more experience 959 owners on things to consider before making these purchases or even other options.

All those are nice but unnecessary unless you plan on tracking the bike to it's fullest capability. My 959 has BST a racing exhaust system and a tune for 147 HP. I went up one tooth in the rear sprocket and the bike runs great with the R6 and the Kawi 636.

I’d say your list is awesome but firstly setup your suspension to make it a ride instead of a beating as far as carbon wheels and making it your own hell yeah post when it’s done and make us jealous if they say any different they are lying to ya. I’m new here just joined and pick up my 959 Corse the 17th.
You obviously have deep pockets so trust me on the suspension first please as a matter of fact just got my first piece for my new ride it’s a suspension wrench lol 18 bucks. Besides dude it’s a freakin Ducati those rims are like putting a beautiful dress on a swimsuit model it’s gonna look awesome no matter. If your a rider you know what I’m talking about . It’s art make it your own and enjoy the ride but the factory settings are gonna make you miss out on what could be a wonderful relationship if you do it right. Looking forward to the pics and bike porn update you rich ******* lol I want some to if your mega deep pockets I’ll post pics hell I’ll join a cult for those rims.
