    Waiting for my 950S

    Just to say hi to everybody. I'm due to get my new 950S next week so thanks for the info given in this forum. Really looking forward to riding it. I ride a Street Triple at the moment and will keep it for a while as it it a great bike but want the Mutley for touring. Heading for Norway as soon as it is run in.  :305:

    Congrats mutleycrew.

    Is it standard, or did you order any farkles?

    Well I got the touring pack too and hopefully I can transfer my Garmin from the Street Triple. I will get some crash bars at some time when my bank account has recovered! I think the Ibex ones look good.

    :400: And I agree re the Ibex bars - less visually intrusive to my eyes - but then I'm biased having chosen them myself  :002:

    Hi Ziggy, did you fit them yourself? Looks straightforward and I could no doubt do it but it looks like they bolt to an engine mounting so as the bike is new, I would worry about the bikes warranty :084:

    Welcome Mutleycrew.

    Waiting even for a few weeks is agony i know as i'm in the same boat.

    Will take a look at the ibex bars as i'm thinking of doing the same.

    Yes fitted them myself to my new bike - I wouldn't worry about warranty - can't see how it would be deemed to affect anything. Fitting is fairly straightforward other than that they are a good tight fit so it takes a bit of wiggling. ducati_al on this forum had real trouble trying to fit and ended up returning the bars but hopefully that was just an isolated incident.
    I really like them and would heartily recommend.
