DRS13

 

"...As the DRS13 (precursor to the DRS33/43) began to emerge, over the course of 9 months of devel-opment, the excitement and energy around the project grew...every day, it seemed. What we were seeing was that not only was the system functionally excellent, it was also becoming very beautiful... "

 

Totally redesigned from its predecessor, the DRS3, the all new DRS33 and DRS43 are solid, billet aluminum rearsets made for Ducati Monster models. They make up one-half of a total Monster rips. The system has been created to provide complete adjustability, outstanding strength and rigidity, and distinctive looks which integrate seamlessly with the Monster design. Used alone or together with the Cycle Cat BR series multi-adjustable bar mounting system, the DRS33/43 provides a range of footpeg and lever adjustment limited only by the motorcycle itself. For most, its adjustment potential greatly exceeds what will ever be needed.

 

DRS13-03

 

As with all Cycle Cat rearset systems, the design and machining has been undertaken thoroughly and with great attention to detail and to very tight tolerances, resulting in a shifting and braking system which is extraordinarily smooth. This new kit incorporates Cycle Cat's proprietary dual spline lever adjustment system, pictured at right and below, right, which keeps brake and shift linkage geometries fixed, in their stock position, while providing a broad range of lever position adjustment.

 

The new DRS33 and DRS43 are designed to accommodate a wide range of aftermarket high-mounted exhaust systems. To do so, they relocate the rear brake master cylinder to a position on the lower engine block, as it is located on the Ducati superbikes and ST models. This relocation keeps the master cylinder away from the exhaust, and incorporates Cycle Cat's double splined lever adjustment system, so that at any point in the full range of lever position adjustment, it is never necessary to change the brake linkage.

 

Both the DRS33 and DRS43 include Cycle Cat's innovative new reversible billet heel guards, designed to provide a full range of protection throughout the extraordinary range of possible footpeg positions.

 

Critical stock parts are reused, shift and brake geometry remains as stock, and nothing additional remains to purchased, customized, or modified by the user. Even the stock brake light switch bolts right up. Nothing's been compromised, nothing ignored.

 

But perhaps the most exciting dimension of this new system is the range of adjustment possible. Click below for all the details.

 

A Note on Passenger Footpegs: Passenger footpegs are not available with the DRS33 or DRS43 kits.

 

DRS-13Rearset-Adjustment-40DRS-33/43 Range of Adjustment

 

To the left is a graphic representation of the range of adjustment possible with the DRS-33 and DRS-43, compared to stock settings. The background image is the stock rearset. The white circle highlights the stock position of the footpeg.

 

Each colored dot represents a possible position of the DRS-33/43 footpeg. There are 108 pos-sible locations for the footpeg, all quickly and easily achieved.

 

While every footpeg position indicated can be used, and there is clearance for positioning of the peg in every case, at the extremes, the positioning can be less practical due to obstruc-tions to the foot or adjustment of the levers. Thus, the dots are color-coded to represent the practicality of use of the various footpeg posi-tions.

 

The green dots are easily used peg positions. The yellow should be useable but may not be, in all cases, for all riders. The red dots are likely to be difficult, though not impossible, to employ.

 

DRS-33/43 Design Intent

 

As indicated, the footpeg can be raised a maximum of 3.93", lowered a maximum of 1.93", moved backward a maximum of 1.81", or forward a maximum of 1.13", from the stock footpeg position.

 

The DRS-33 and DRS-43 systems are designed to fine tune the footpeg and control positions for optimal handling and performance on Ducati Monsters. These motorcycles are, as stock, relatively unaggressive with respect to rider positioning, meaning rider posture is normally relatively upright, and weight distribution shifted rearward. As rider position becomes even more unaggressive, handling begins to suffer. On the contrary, as rider position is made more aggressive, Monsters' handling may be found to improve significantly.

 

Thus, we designed the DRS-33 and DRS-43 to provide a range of adjustment weighted toward the more aggressive settings. The geometry of the system provides a 67:33 up:down adjustment ratio. With such a design, there remains considerable adjustment potential toward the more open, less aggressive settings.

 

Ultimately, it was our objective with the DRS-33/43 to create a versatile means for dialing-in the fit of the foot position and controls, to accommodate any style of riding desired, and to take advantage of every inch of adjustment practical. The DRS-13 and the DRS-23 meet and exceed our objectives, and, we believe, succeed in providing virtually any rider with an incomparable, easily-achieved, personalized riding position, for any kind of ride.

DRS3-17b-350

The relocation of the rear brake master cylinder ...itself involved a small work of art. The solid billet adapter, pictured above left, which relocates the master cylinder to the superbike position, provides for a quick and easy installation. It also allows for "as stock" utilization of the brake light switch. All assembled, the result is a smooth, precise, durable, and consistent braking system.

 

Its all about details... careful, proper design, tight tolerances, fine machining, and the highest quality standards are evident everywhere, even on the closest inspection. But it's not done for bragging rights. It's done for performance...long life and smooth operation. And its born of a basic intolerance for anything less.

Important:

The DRS33 and DRS43 are designed for bikes modified from stock with high-mounted exhaust. They work equally well with low-pipe configurations, but because of the additional cost of the master cylinder relocation kit included with the DRS33 and DRS43, owners of low-pipe bikes might prefer the DRS13 or DRS23 models.

 

1. Due to the location of high-mount exhaust pipes, and their proximity to a passenger's legs, The DRS33 and 43 do not provide for the mounting of passenger pegs.

 

2. Ducati Performance carbon fibre belly pans will cause an interference with the brake light switch mechanism on both the DRS33 and DRS43. This interference is easily remedied.

A Note on Exhaust Hangers

 

For those who utilize the stock or aftermarket lower exhaust, or wishing to maintain passenger pegs, the DEH2 and DEH3, solid CNC billet exhaust hangers, are available as an option. Exhaust hangers are not included with the DRS13 or DRS23 systems. The DEH2 (monoposto) and DEH3 (biposto, with provision for saddle bag attachment) kits bolt up in minutes, and provide a handsome, lightweight means of providing the exhaust support required or the support of a passenger and luggage.

 

Shipped complete, the total system installs in minutes. Light, strong, smooth and precisely operating, the DRS13/23 is the most fully adjustable system you can buy for your Monster. We think you'll be very pleased.

 

It's all about details and careful, proper design, tight tolerances, fine machining, and the highest quality standards are evident everywhere, even on the closest inspection. But it's not done for bragging rights. It's done for performance...long life and smooth operation. And its born of a basic intolerance for anything less.

Important

The DRS13 and DRS23 are designed for stock configured bikes with stock or low aftermarket pipes. Two new models, the DRS33 and DRS43, have been designed specifically for high-pipe configurations. The DRS13 and DRS23 are not fully functional with aftermarket, high-mount exhaust systems. For those switching between high and low mount pipes, rearset conversion parts are available, please consider the DRS33 and DRS43 models.

1. On models with conventional, low-mount exhaust systems, an exhaust hanger is required (see text above.) Cycle Cat's DEH2 and DEH3, which are monoposto and biposto respectively, are available separately.

2. With the addition of fuel injection, Ducati placed an emissions cannister in a location which conflicts with the DEH2 and DEH3. Thus, Cycle Cat's exhaust hangers are not applicable to fuel injected models unless the cannister is relocated.

3. The DRS13/23 locate the brake master cylinder very close to its original position, but in a slightly adjusted position. To optimize this positioning, a slightly longer hydraulic line is required. Braided stainless steel lines, made for Cycle Cat by Spiegler, are supplied in the DRS13/23 kits. The DRS13 and DRS23 are identical except for the length of this hydraulic line.

4. As of the posting of this product released, all models and years of Monsters have not been specifically reviewed in our shop. To assist in choosing the proper kit for your bike, select the DRS13 if your rear brake caliper is mounted at approximately the 7:00 position on the rotor, when viewed from the brake side of the bike. Select the DRS23 if your rear brake caliper is mounted at approximately the 12:00 position when viewed from the brake side of the bike.

Model shown above: DTC7 in titanium finish.

 

DTC-7 Billet Triple Clamp

 

The DTC7 top triple clamp is CNC-machined of solid billet 7075 aluminum, with Cycle Cat's signature trellis design, combining remarkable strength and rigidity with minimal weight. Designed to fit all late model Ducati Monsters, including S4 and S4R, as well as ST2 and ST4 models, these clamps are designed to incorporate Cycle Cat's DRA-1 or DRA-2 riser adapters, and ultimately, Cycle Cat's RIPS bar systems, for a complete upgrade package.

 

All models come complete with required hardware for quick, bolt-on installation.

 

The DTC7 may be purchased alone, with riser adapters, or with complete bar mounting systems.

 

How the system works:

The DTC7 replaces the stock triple clamp. On ST and Monster S4 models, the stock handlebar mounting system can be reused. But these new clamps are really designed for the addition of the DRA-1 and DRA-2 riser adapaters, which in turn permit the use of Cycle Cat's RIPS series bar mounting systems (models DBR5,15,23,and 33), adding not only the strength and beauty of the clamp, but the full range of bar position adjustment for which the RIPS systems are known.

 

Please note:

The DTC7 is not designed or intended to be used with clip-ons or risers which mount under the triple clamp.

 

Special Pricing - SAVE $75:

 

Purchase a DTC7 with a DBR5,15, 23, 33, 43, or 53 and your dealer will take $75.00 off the package price.

Example: DTC7 ($325) + DBR33 ($395) = $720 regularly. Less $75 = $645.

 

DTC7 Configurations

The DTC7 can be used in a variety of ways, with a variety of different products, affording the user a number of choices in completing a DTC7-based installation. The following illustrations represent the most common configurations, and the parts required to build them.
