Just finished install and test drive of the mid controls. I was a bit intimidated at first but once you get going install taking my time I did it in about 4 hours over a period of 2 days. Did a side after work. I take back what I said about the mid controls. Like what others have mention turning I feel more confident, and also feel relaxed in this position. I got my wife to sit on the bike and now she can ride it too. Just told her to not drop my bike í ¾í´£ í ½í¸‚

I have the same controls. My foot pegs got loose after a few ride. I re-torqued them, never had an issue since. Just a heads up

Ricardo, do you prefer the Michelin Power RS over the diablo Rosso 2? Have you tried the DR3's? How's tread wear? Thanks.
The Rossi's 2 only lasted for about 9K, currently with the Michelin's powers for the last 8K, so far so good. I think I have another year with the powers. Maybe on the next replacements I will try the rosso 3's

Little mod for the ducabike mid controls and clear clutch Aquarium. Replaced the black bolts and installed titanium screws instead. You tell in pics the original screws do not look too pretty. Cleans it up real well and like the color scheme between the ducabike and silver screws

Got a new paint job, never will get a vinyl wrap ever again. If not done properly it looks like crap. Also the flat back gets boring and scratches easily so I went with a grey, and it's not nardo grey. Went along the lines though. It changes color depending on the weather

Trying to keep this thread alive. Got the fork fluid and seals replaced. During that time I got my wheels powder coated. So final stage of how my Xdiavel looks now. The Color combo is not for the faint of heart

Since I've jump on to the "sister", you Guys must keep the tread alive 😉

But why should we all be equal.
May not, as you mentioned- for all, but it works.

Update my original rider and shorter rear seat. The previous Luimoto seats in brown does not match the new color scheme. Got the new Luimoto suede setup instead and looks fantastic, also came with the new strap to match. Did it myself and took about an hour. Perfect fit also if anyone is interested the brown covers and the premium seats (rider and rear seat) are for sale in the classifieds

Had my brand new XD Dark delivered. 👍






Whilst I’m laid up in hospital following a smashed femur and knee joint (been replaced) following a nice chap that decide to turn right on me into a lay-by as I was overtaking him, no look no signal just slammed it to the right whilst I was along side his Rear wheel.
Leg took the full force, but somehow I didn’t come off (I ended up in the lay-by still on the bike with a leg facing forwards but a foot facing backwards and with pain like never before)

Operation last Monday now the road to recovery and being able to get on the new bike. Dealer said I could pull out if I wanted, but I said no way, if ever there was incentive to work hard and get back on track this is it..👍

Very nice it looks very good darker again compared to my 2016 standard one. Sorry to hear of the knock off, I recently had an off to but was thankfully ok bruises etc.
It sure does make you think about riding but then why shouldn't we! just because some can't seem to see or drive very well!
Good luck with recovery.

Thanks, it was pretty simple. I used a t-stapler 50 with an air compressor to install. If you turn your seat over there are a million staples you have to take off to remove the original seat cover. There is two removal rivets you have to take off the Xdiavel plate. Reinstall is reversed. Overall took me an hour and that’s taking my time. I used the jeret campisi Xdiavel YouTube video for reference as it shows step by step how to

Keeping this thread alive!! Hahahahhaaha! Anyways back to topic. Like to keep my Xdiavel up to date and fresh, I ended up reinstalling the kellerman bullet atto on the rear again add with my custom led brake modulator. I feel l the custom led modulator works great but I want to be more visible from the cagers. I ended up installing the kellermans underneath. What made this install easier is the Rizoma side plate actually came with an extension kit that works perfectly to add more turn signals. Also did the fronts as well so the turn signals are back on the headlight
