Monster 1200 2014-15 side swingarm

Hi all,

I was wondering if anyone knows (or even thought about it) whether the side swingarm plate holder from the Monster 1200 2014-2015 will fit to the SSS? I think it would look sick! Also would be great to her other opinions on the looks.

Just for reference, here is the technical picture for it: https://www.bike-parts-ducati.com/du...LDER/40/6/0/40

Thanks!

I looked at my swingarm and it's not tapped for the screws. It looks like there is a blank on the rear of the swingarm but I didn't see anything on the top (it looks like there should two screws for the attachment arm to the swingarm?).

I'm curious how they fished the lamp wire in there.

The monster swingarm is reinforced to carry that arm. SS doesn't have those strengthners at the mounting bolts.
Here's a suggestion, if you can bend some plate and drill a few holes, there's a rear guard on aliexpress.
If you can find strong and thin plate then you could use the bolts holes for the chain slider and the place the chain slider over the top of the mounting plate and bolt them down to the swingarm.

Interesting suggestion, thank you. Do you know if there is an aftermarket solution for this? I'm sure I would be able to install it, but not sure about making one... Plus if need to run the plate light wire and potentially the indicators too...



Thanks

I don't think the SS has the holes for the bracket.

Would the Monster 1200 Swingarm be a straight swap on the SS?

It probably would, they seem to be the same apart from a few lugs and tapped holes but that seems a very expensive way of achieving a rear mudguard that works.
HOWEVER. For those of us with the non-S models there may be another answer
There are 2 rear mudguards listed for the 2015 1200 Monster. A short one similar to that on the Supersport and a long one that covers most of the top of the rear tyre. The part number is 56510721B, it looks like it will fit straight on and only costs 68.66.
Edit: It's another one of those parts that is only listed for the Australian market.
Here's pics of the SS and Monster Parts for comparison.

@Derek both of those pictures appear to show the ohlins shock, that being so that would work for the S but not necessarily with the non-S.

@DucColin . You are right. So it should work for the S and non-S as it doesn't have the reservoir on the shock.
I'm not sure what happens at the rear of that long mudguard. The parts list shows a rubber pad (item 10) are the rear end. It looks quite long to be unsupported so maybe it fits into number plate hanger?

Doesn't look like this longer mudguard allows for the light for the number plate? So it would have to be added on. Wonder if hiding the cables would be easy. Anyway, I'd prefer a look of a side swing arm and leave the wheel a bit more exposed.
