Ducati Panigale 899 2014 - Bitubo ECH29 Cartridge Kit

Product code: D0042ECH29

Product information

The ECH29 cartridge kit is a favourite with riders at the front of many national championships having achieved success in World Superbikes, British Superbike, IDM and the Italian racing championships. A patented Fully Pressurised System (FPS) providing instant damping force without the risk of fluid cavitation as exhibited with other manufacturer's cartridge kits. Suitable for road and track, these cartridges give fantastic feel at the front and an extremely supple ride.

Very easy, and quick, spring replacement with all necessary special tools supplied with the kit (unlike others!!). Compression and rebound damping can be adjusted with using any tools as can the hydraulic preload adjust (if weight is removed from the front i.e. when machine is on under-yoke stand) or with the simple tool provided when weight is on the front suspension.
