This weekend I lowsided my bike at the track. It is still fully rideable except for the clutch lever. It was bent forward and down. While I can still use it, I really need a new one before this weekend for my military Sport Bike Rider Course. Since parts for my bike are not plentiful, I was wondering what other bikes could be possible donors when searching Ebay and CL.

Here is my parts list so far:

clutch lever (626.4.007.1B)
left grip (8000.78345) <--- come in a pair
left bar end (872.4.028.1A) didn't realize the damn thing was plastic
left foot peg (464.1.005.1A)
left exhaust (574.1.047.1B)
left passenger peg support (824.1.046.1A)

I think the grip/bar end/clutch lever/foot peg are the same on all 99+ SS models and the same as the 95-02 SBK models.
Anybody who can confirm this?

Exhaust and passenger peg support I don't know.

Oddly enough I've have found out that my clutch lever has the same part number as the brake lever for the 2001 996 and 748. Seems odd, but thats what the pars list for those bikes show. Hopefully that improves the odds of a local dealer having one if I can't find one cheaper elsewhere.

Clutch levers... I dont know what they are the same as. Neither of my levers here fit. I have a 750/900SS lever from a 00MY and a 999 Lever, and neither of them would work. So they are a no go. I dont know what these master cylinders are off, but they look rubbish. Cheap nasty Japanese Honda scooter looking things. Dont know who makes them, But they dont look brembo to me. Have a look at an early ST2 set up. It may be similar to that. Not the cylinder set up, but the lever looks very similar. Non-adjustable and with the big pivot pin. The part numbers are different... I just checked, but who knows?

Bar ends i am pretty sure are universal. I own a 999 and a 620 and they look the same. They are like $5 from a dealer. dont know why you worry about that. I like that they are plastic, they are soft and wear, steal ones might not be so forgiving in an accident and grip flipping the bike over.

Grips are a dime a dozen. I Bought some pro gel grips for my race bike. Much easier on the hands and better grip.

Exhaust is different but look the same. I have read, but i dont know, as ive never looked (will be looking soon though...) the 620 has cat converters in the pipes. The 750/800/900/1000's apparently dont. I would sell you my pipe, but i think the freight would kill it. Cheaper to buy in the US. I have heard but cannot confirm that the 800 and 1000SS exhausts will fit but the 750/900's wont. Something about angle and bore size ? One thing i know 100% is that the older monster pipes do not fit. They look like they do, they go into the headers but the mounts dont line up. They are a much nicer looking oval exhaust, but you would have to make up some custom hangers for them and they just dont look right when mounted.

As for pegs, most of them look the same. The ones on my 999 look the same as my 620. The mounts are completely different, but just the peg on its own, they look identical.

As for the rear passenger mount. Is it broken ? I cant see any marks on it in the photos. If its bent, bend it back. It may look bent but is ok, it may be the mount on the frame that is bent. Thats what happened to mine.

Another option is to not worry about it, or buy after market goodies for it. The bar ends, dont worry, they are a cheap item to buy, but dont worry about getting genuine grips unless it has to be 100% original for whatever reason. Foot pegs arnt bad. Give them a file and a sanding back to make it look better or buy some billet alloy replacements in black. The exhaust still works ? Why bother replacing with genuine ? Unless again it was for the rules of a race class. (ie: superstock) as it may just get dropped again.

If it is a track bike. I would not be too concerned about whats happened as it could happen again, and you will be forever replacing parts that just dont need it. And i am pretty confident that the bike having a few scratches on it wont stop you from going on a rider training course. The bent lever however, might. I would say, fix the lever/grip and anything that is "broken" ie: snapped off, not grazed, and go. It will be a good talking point about how you were cutting some sick laps at the track and pushed too hard. As i always say to my mates, no scars, no proof.

Part No. i show for a 996/748 Clutch lever is: 631.4.009.1A This is very different number and lever to the one on my 620. The lever off the 996 looks almost the same as the old 750SS lever i have here. I know for a fact it wont fit. My mate has a 748 about 2002 model and im sure the lever on that is not the same. Has a rotary dial to set distance. If yours has that, then youre in with a shot. If its the same as my lever on my 620, it has no adjustment and looks very different. Dont confuse a M620ie with a 620Sport. The M620ie may have this same lever as a 996, but im sure the 620 Sport does not.

Compare here...

620Sport aftermarket lever...

Thanks for the info. My bike is a street bike that I took out for a track days. Most of the damage is cosmetic and everything functions normally. I was just listing everything that would need to be replaced, not necessarily that I was going to use a Ducati OEM.

The clutch lever is just bent too much to comfortably use. The compatibility with those two bikes was with their brake lever, not their clutch lever. Seems odd, but thats what it shows.

I've tried to tighten up the passenger peg bracket, but the exhaust still moves a bit. I will probably just leave these as long as the don't affect passenger riding.

Footpeg I will probably just touch up with black paint for now to hide the scrapes.

Bar end cap will just be replaced once I push the old one out from inside the bar where it was shoved.

Grips will be replaced with aftermarket as I was going to do that anyway
