Kevin here, creator of the Ducati Throttle Spacer Kit and Panigale Heat Shield Kit. I created the Spacer Kit back in 2014, after buying an 899 Panigale and noticing the excessive slop in the throttle. A few DIY options existed, but nobody had an affordable, elegant solution. Thus, the Throttle Spacer Kit was born! We've since expanded the product line to work with countless models from Ducati, Triumph, KTM, and Husqvarna.
A couple years of riding my 899 had me ready to give up the bike due to the absurd levels of heat. This led me to embark upon designing a custom-cut heat shield kit for the 899/959 Panigale. The kit drastically reduced the radiant heat from the bike, and I went on to design similar kits for the 1199/1299, Panigale V2, and recently the Panigale V4 & Streetfighter V4 models!
