I have a little over 400 miles on my 959 and I am already thinking that I need different rearsets. I had vortex on my last bike so these stock Duc pegs feel "slippery" to me. My right heel also tends to rest on the swingarm. A bigger heel guard or different foot position might help with that.

I wanted to see what the community things and if you guys have had any experience with any of these brands.

DP
Of course anything Ducati Performance is going to be the top choice. But at $1,350 these carry a big price tag.

Woodcraft
Tried and true these rearsets are not the sexiest but they do offer a good name and easy replacement if damaged. For around $610 you can get these with folding break and shifter levers.

Bonamici
I have never heard of this brand but a friend recommended them to me. They look good to me and the price is right at $579 but no folding toe pieces.

CNC racing
Another brand I have no experience with but that look good and seem to have ample parts available. At $699 They run a little higher than most.

Ducabike
For the guy who wants color options this is the brand for you. 4 different colors, folding pegs, folding toe pieces and parts are ample. At $720 these are the rearsets for you. I think they are kind of ugly and bulky, but that's my opinion.

Rizoma
The pegs I was leaning to (but was talked out of) are these Rizoma. I like the look, options are good, adjustable, parts are easy to come by but they do look like they would not stand up to a crash. At $625 they are not the cheapest but not the most expensive either.

Soto Racing
I almost forgot about this brand. 3 different colors, 4 different positions and optional spacer kit (for tall people i think) these guys have a lot going for them. I do like the "gold" color they offer more than some other brands. No folding pegs or toe pieces but they do have a great look to them and parts are easy to come by. But at $895 these are the second most expensive ones on the list.


SO! What do you guys think? Opinions? Comments? Experience with any of these? Good or bad... The community wants to know.

Cheers and ride safe.

I've read one review, 44 Tooth I think, were the reviewer said his heel was in contact with the heat shield on the exhaust - could fitment of rearsets effect this further?

I can see that could be an issue with euro side exhaust. Rear sets might allow the pegs to be a touch higher and give a bit more clearance. Strangely, Ducati don't have many shots of the right-hand side of the Euro version on their web site!

For someone who will probably pay full price for DP stuff it's hard for me to front that price tag... Maybe if someone helped out with a discount...

I will say the 2 year warranty on all DP products gives me a great piece of mind.

here is my view on rear sets...


if you are just going to ride your bike on the street and have the money to blow on pimp value go for the DP or the SBK design set.. It will get you plenty of looks while your at the Starbucks...


if you are going to hit the track I would suggest something that will not make you cry when you low side the bike. Something that replacement parts are easy to get and cheap. These days all rear sets are made with the same specs, same materials. The big thing you should look at is the quality of the bearings and possible positions configurations. I remember when my buddy purchase a set of Chinese CNC knock off for his 1090S, I gave him all kids of **** about the quality. I had my 848 in those days and used an Italian name brand (which I will not mention) his looked as good as mine, worked the same and had similar adjustments. A year later mine were binding from bear failure, water induced and his were still kicking looking fresh. That was the kicker for me and I realized that I was just drinking the cool aid... now I shop function before pimp...


I learned years ago when I crashed my RC51 at the races that replacing my gold Sato rear sets were super expensive... I replaced them with Vortex and never regretted it... JMHO if you have the cash to blow $1400K on RS's go for it... after all Bling is king for some folks...

I have the Bonamici on my bike. You can get optional folding toe pegs or footpegs for them.

That's good to know thank you! I do like the Bioamici but question for you, do you find that your right foot rests more on the swing arm? The heel guard on these rearsets seems to just cover the rear brake master and not prevent you from resting your heal on the swing arm.

I have never had that happen.

I am realizing that I need to get my feet higher up and more forward to get the body position required with more aggressive riding. Discovering this now that the break in is over and I am using more machine capability.

I Plan to try these just to play around with finding the right foot position.

Really inexpensive:

$117 is worth it just to test for ideal foot position

And what happens if one of the pegs breaks during a ride...? Not a wise choice if you ask me! Get a quality piece that you can return if needed.

That is a good point indeed. The cheap metals used to save on production costs are almost certainly being used in such a cheap set.

To be fair, material isn't really going to make a difference if its low grade billet aluminum vs high grade billet aluminum as much as the design. The fasteners are still most likely going to be the point of failure unless it just has a piss poor design (it doesn't look that bad).

130$ is about 20% the cost of some Woodcraft ones, but if you're willing to test them out and they hold without snapping when you hop on it, they'll probably be strong enough for general use.

Received the unit today. Quality of the parts and hardware seems excellent. I will install and report back.

The ebay unit is not compatible with the 959 without alteration and modification, despite the advertised claims.

Look at the attached photos. The right side, brake side works really well, no problems at all.

The left side, clutch side does not fit due to the panigale frame bolt interfering with the u attachment of the rearset. Notice the contact between the parts. Some dremel work could fix that, but it would weaken the member.

Also, the bolt through the uni-ball at the end of the clutch lever rod is too short from the stock setup, I used a longer bolt and washers to prevent rubbing on the frame.

I do like the raised foot position and easily adjustable brake and clutch lever arms.

I will likely get a better quality set this summer.

Update: I reached out to the ebay seller and he said they will send a collar for the shifter rod and a bolt that will not interfere with the bracket. Standard items for a 959 install that were not included in my kit. NICE!
