So my bike decided to take a "nap" yesterday while I was trying to turn around on a dirt patch. :crying: It went down in slow motion...I have tried searching online for parts, but have been unsuccessful. I have a 2017 1200S and I need a need clutch lever, and left hand guard. I believe I can remove the light and install it into the new guard? Other than that no other damage sans some fairing scrape. I think I should be able to replace the guard myself, but the clutch lever i'm not sure on. Ugg...and it was such a nice ride until that moment. please help.

Ducati Omaha. I've ordered stuff from them before and they are pretty responsive. Looks like the clutch lever is ~$140. Ouch! Didn't price any of the other parts.

You might want to look at used parts or aftermarket if price is a consideration. Good luck

We all feel your pain, I think most of us have had something like that happen.

The clutch lever is easily replaced, there are lots of aftermarket ones out there. You should be able to order any OEM parts through Ducati Omaha online, or through your dealer (Ducati Omaha stocks A LOT of parts) if you don't mind waiting the "6 weeks away from Italy".

I don't know how the hand-guard mounted lights install, but if they're like my mirror-mounted signals the wiring needs to be disconnected around the steering tube someplace and pulled back through the bars. If you have to do this then tie a string onto the end connectors before you pull it through so you can pull the new wiring back easily.

Only the last 3/4" of the lever snapped, it is still functional. If the guard is only $25 I need to order than now, I have it held together with gorilla tape :( I sent them emails, as I can not find the part numbers online. thanks for the quick replies guys.

As many levers I've swapped over the years I can pretty much tell you they're interchangeable, 999, sf, multi, same thing, if you're going to get new ones get a set of foldable ones, on a tip over like that they flip right up

Probably no brand, can't remember having one that why they weren't very expensive.
I think I have another set with a different color combo, let me look, you may be in luck

No good, sorry, they're on Ebay for around $50 or $60, probably Chinese but I can vouch they're very nice and every bike of mine has had a set.
Cheers!

If you don't want to wait for a response from the dealer, diagram and part numbers are in the online catalog on page 96-97 in the link I posted above. From there, you can go to Ducati Omaha's homepage and enter the part numbers to get pricing...

Just inspect the Chinese ones very carefully. There have been instances where guys have reported the Chinese brake levers that weren't machined properly caused their brakes to drag and boiled their brake fluid causing them to lock up.

Not to open a debate or side with the cheaper ones but there's adjustments that need to be looked at no matter what you install, not always plug and play.
The fit and finish is above a brand that sells for over $300, I speak for my own experience soo..... my point is don't knock it until you try it, I had at least 6 sets so far and never ever had a single issue with them, believe what you like!
$.02!

You need to cure brake drag?
The plunger needs adjusting!
Cheers!

Mine is a Monster. I found a helpful youtube video. Iirc, I had to push out bushings at the pivot point of the old levers and put them in the new levers. Ymmv.
