Ive got a set of throttle spacers coming as well. Most forums rave about the difference. We will know soon enough. Will post my thoughts once I throw them on.

Interesting... I never noticed an issue with that on the 1199. It does have that slack, but I don't feel it while riding.

You may be right here as far as not noticing. Let me get the bike first, (within two weeks) and I'll decide from there.

Panigalespacers.com ( they are actually on eBay )
I didn't know Ducati even had spacers. Can't they just throw those on when they are assembling the d**n thing and charge $30 more for the bike.
The 'Ducati' ones are not factory parts. I beleive they were commissioned by a dealer; Ducati Omaha, I think.

I installed mine last night. I didn't really notice the slack until I read about it on here, but I like the more precise fit just on principle. :)

Do you guys know what kind of plastic they used to make the spacers? It looks like the spacers were 3D printed, so I feel like if I just had the dimensions I could 3D print one for a lot cheaper than $30, unless there is some other special things happening that I'm unaware of.

you definitely could, but why would you invest time and money when you can just have it done and completed - that's why I got them coming. Just going through testing different manufacturers materials would take weeks if not longer...

Yay installed my spacers last night, very easy. Although I shot one of the tri Y screws across the room and couldnt find it so I just replaced with small Phillips in case I need to get back in there, definitely snappy.

I have to agree with you all - I added the spacers today and I love the direct response from the grip. It's immediate now.

It's the little things that count...

Thanks for your input @rucks22,
I ordered a set just in case I don't like the throttle response.

I looked up some videos on YouTube about the spaces, and I think I'd really like the elimination of the play in the throttle, but does anyone know of any disadvantages that might come with these spacers, if any?
