YOU JUST BOUGHT A BRAND NEW DUCATI


AND you're satisfied with SLOPPY THROTTLE RESPONSE?


make it flawless for less than $30. what are you waiting for?



TESTIMONIALS



"I just installed the throttle spacer kit. It was $30 and took about 8-10 mins to install. Everything fit absolutely perfectly. There is now absolutely zero slack/play in the throttle assembly. WOW...Throttle response is FAR MORE accurate after getting rid of the slop. Everything is tighter and more responsive. As someone stated earlier, the throttle now feels telepathic vs. what it felt like before putting in the spacers. This could easily by the best $30 investment I've ever made. For those of you who haven't done this quick little mod yet, I HIGHLY recommend."


"This may be the most efficient cost to benefit upgrade I've ever done on any motorcycle. The enhanced throttle control makes riding much more safe and fun. I would consider this a must (street or track). I was going to remap & re gear after break in, but this $30 mod may obviate the need. Its that good. It truly is sublime."



"I finally installed mine over the weekend. Took longer to read the instructions than to do the work itself. Tweezers were really handy for me and my big hands for putting the spacers in place. I bought the same $30 kit, and a nice little screwdriver kit on amazon for $10 that included the tri-tip driver. And on to my impressions: HOLY CRAP THESE ARE AWESOME! The throttle response is massively improved from zero. I love them. They're great. It's like a different bike. No more slight stutter from stop in calm riding. Seriously, everyone who has a 1299, go buy this kit. Now. I'll wait. Back? Good. Install them and be even happier."


"Did mine just 9 days ago, even got to try a track day as well as the daily 200 km commute to and from work. I love it! Even in rush hour traffic, city driving, and track day! Miles better than the standard sloppy throttle!"





Frequently Asked Questions



How does the throttle spacer kit work?

This spacer kit is designed to eliminate the play/slop in the stock ride-by-wire throttle assembly of the Ducati Panigale 899/959/1199/1299. The stock throttle assembly allows for several degrees of rotation of the throttle tube with zero throttle response, and no signal being sent to the ride-by-wire system. These spacers are designed to fit over the nubs in the throttle assembly to take up the extra physical slack, resulting in a hair-trigger throttle that experienced riders will find significantly more responsive and easier to modulate. This kit is guaranteed to improve the accuracy of rev-matched downshifts, and allows for greater control of on/off throttle transitions.


You're crazy! The slop is there for a reason!

Ducati designed the throttle to feel and behave like a traditional cable setup, which always has a bit of cable slack before being pulled taut. Racing homologation rules also require that the throttle has some slack, so they're forced to do it! There's absolutely no benefit for this slop in a ride-by-wire setup, and it only creates difficulty in applying smooth throttle input. The kit does not interfere with the computer's ability to read a closed throttle, as evidenced by the thousands of riders using this kit with no reported issues!

What happens if I hit a pothole? Will my bike be uncontrollable?
The kit only smooths out the on-off transitions of the throttle. When you're riding around town, the throttle is slightly cracked open. The bike will behave exactly the same going over a bump/pothole whether the spacer kit is installed or not! There's no scenario where additional slop in the throttle is beneficial.


Can't I just adjust the throttle cables to remove the slack?
No, as the Panigale doesn't have any throttle cables! The system is entirely electronic, and the only way to remove that slack is to fill the gaps inside the throttle housing.

Is the throttle spacer kit safe?

No failures of the throttle spacer kit have been reported in many months of testing and real-world use. However, installation of this kit will result in a super-responsive throttle that less experienced motorcyclists may find difficult to control. Installation could also result in a stuck throttle that could lead to a crash. This kit is meant for experienced riders looking for instantaneous throttle response. The user assumes all liability for their safety when using this kit.


How is the throttle spacer kit manufactured?

The kit is manufactured via a precision injection molding process with high grade polypropylene material selected for its particular combination of flexibility and strength. The material allows for enough flexibility to form a very tight fit over the nubs inside the throttle housing, while still maintaining enough stiffness for instantaneous throttle response.


Is the kit difficult to install?

The kit comes with a four-page, full color installation guide with step-by-step instructions detailing the entire installation process. The installation can be performed with basic hand tools in less than 15 minutes. Required tools are a flathead screwdriver, #2 Phillips driver/bit, and a #3 tri-wing driver/bit (tri-wing bit included in the kit!).


Do you ship internationally? What about customs fees?

Yes, we ship our kits to most international destinations for a small added cost via USPS First Class International or USPS Priority International. Your kit will be shipped with a low claimed value to avoid all customs fees!
