Does anyone have the Passenger grab handles installed on their bike?

Curious to see how it looks installed.

Eweeee! :wink2:
Hahahaha! Just looking to see if I can anchor a small bag onto those for short trips :) cannot bear if they are fugly metal overhangs!

I dont really like the bag on the tank and dont really want to deal with panniers for couple of hours trips :wink2:

For passenger hand rails, they look pretty neat.

How easy are they to install/take off?
I take my girl on the bike very occasionally. So planning to leave them and the pillion foot rests off until I need them.

Hi all,

my dealer installed them and i don't know how long time to unfit/ fit them.
I think it's not quick and easy.

I let them on the bike, there are small and nice compared to other bikes.

My partner appreciate them at high speed, one hand on the tank the over on the grab handle.

I installed grab handles on my 1100 EVO and it was easy. I see the SS has similar mounting holes. I did just purchase a pair and will post once installed. The cost is only 10 dollar more than the tank pad. LOL

I'll be curious on your install as I need to get some of these soon, too. The wifey likes to ride sometimes. I'm more curious as to how easy they will be to take on/off regularly. Keep us posted.

Ok - the grab handles came in today. Took about 15 mins to install. They come with new rubber panels and no instructions. Once you see how the current panel are one the bike its very easy. Taking the old panels off they used red thread locker. When i put the new ones on, i used blue. Do one side at a time then you can use the other as a reference.

I just installed the grab handle kit on my bike this evening. My guess is that it will take about 30-45 minutes to do the initial install. Once you've done that, I think it should take you about 15 minutes to remove/re-install them.

The kit contains:
Two handles
Two small rubber panels
Two large rubber panels
Four Bolts and Four Washers

You will only use the larger panels. The small ones are to fit the handles to some other bike. Not sure which bike.

You will need to remove the existing rubber panels from each side of the bike. There are two bolts on each side which retain the panels. To remove the panels, remove the bolts, then pull down on the rear edge of each panel, while simultaneously pulling them rearward. Here's a shot of the left panel you will remove:



In these photos, you can see I've removed the seat and the existing panel from the right side:





Here are images of the how the handle and panel are assembled for the left side of the bike:





Insert the three fingers on the panel through the holes in the handle. I sprayed them with silicone to help seat them easier. They are a very tight fit.

Here are pics of the right side grab handle after it has been assembled:



Both handles are ready for installation:


Install each handle on the bike by inserting the wide end up and above the trailing edge of the saddle side panel (faring) and then raising the narrow end upwards to greet the tail lamp. Secure with the included bolts and washers (use thread lock), and you're done.

Much of the Ducati stuff comes without instructions, the Dealers have access to these and mine always prints a copy off for me.

Thanks for posting those pictures, they are very useful. It gives me ideas of where some of the pannier mountings are going to go on my bike.
I will be fitting the Nonfango hard panniers from my wifes ST2.
