I Ride: 1299 S (2016) / 1199R Superstock (2014) (from Barni Racing)
Question Monster 1200 S GP-Shift (2017 model)

I pulled the trigger on a 2017 monster 1200 S for my trip to Spain in October. Dealer told me that Ducati offers a reverse shift lever for the GP-shift pattern. Turns out - not so much.

They were not able to find any available lever in the Ducati product range and make it work with the GP-shift pattern. I have no idea if it can be reversed at all, given the up/down quick shifter? On my Panigale 1299 S I had to buy and install a special connector cable, since the push/pull function of the lever is reversed when using GP-shift (so the electronics need to be reversed as well).

Can anyone help and has any idea if any aftermarket parts are available to reverse the shift pattern? I was not able to find any levers or rear sets for the new Monster with GP-shift.

Any help greatly appreciated!

I have a 2016 Monster 1200 R. At the dealership, they reversed the shift pattern for me to GP shift. The shift rod is a tad short when spun the other direction and I really need a longer shift rod but we made do with the OEM rear sets. I have seen on web sites a CNC made set of rear sets for the R. I note that you are on an S model, and your rear sets are different. I may be wrong, but I do believe CNC makes a pair of adjustable rear sets for the 1200 S. The price for the CNC rear sets for the R model was approximately $1100.00 U.S.D. Do a search on CNC rear sets and see what you come up with. Good luck.

Ducabike makes reverse shifting rearsets. You can buy them from Bellissimoto. I have CNC racing on my 1299 panigale that are reverse shifting, lightech reverse shifting on S1000R and Gilles tooling reverse shifting on the S1000RR. Took a few days to really get used to them with no mistakes. But when I ride my friends standard shifting bikes i have to think lol. Here is the link BellissiMoto - DucaBike Rearsets for Monster 1200

The problem with the new up/down quick shifter is, that it's too wide for the shift leaver. Had a look at it today - there is now way to make the GP-shift work with the standard shift rod and leaver.
I will try and write to CNC to see if they have anything available. The problem is, that currently none of the after market rearsets has an admission by Swiss authorities. If I just bolt anything to the bike, police might pull me over and I'll get fined.

I already wrote to Ducabike yesterday. They don't have anything in their product range that fits the new 2017 model

I just checked and DucaBike makes rear sets for the Monster S. They have GP shift and are adjustable. The cost is $1,000 U.S.D. Unreal. You can order them from Bellissimoto but I saw where you wrote about import problems. I can't believe the cops would pull someone over for having different rear sets. It's not like you're changing the exhaust to something obnoxious. Rear sets would seem to be an issue of safety especially if someone is shorter or taller.

Good luck. I love my 1200R. I need to change the gearing because it is too tall.

The 2017 rear sets on the S are different than the rear sets on the 2015 S and 2016 S? Don't you find that strange? I can't imagine Ducati changed the configuration on the rear sets but if that's what DucaBike told you, I guess so.

Just to throw in my 2 cents. Of the guys who put reverse shifting on their bikes. Only 5% actually need them. The other 95% just want to brag. My friend moved my shifter on my S1000RR to make it reverse shifting. I decided I didnt want 1 bike to be reverse shifting and the other 2 regular. So I installed Gilles tooling on the S1000RR, CNC racing on the 1299 panigale, and Lightech on the S1000R. If he never moved the shifter on the S1000RR I would never have done all those mods and spent the money. I fall into the 95% lol. But now that I have it I will admit i do love it especially knowing my friends dont ask to ride my bikes. And that is the reason my name is Overkill in my motorcycle club where i cant even ride the sport bikes. Harleys only. Either save you money for other mods or buy nice rear sets that are regular shifting

I saw it too on Ducabikes website and wrote them. The confirmed that they do not offer a shift lever/rear sets for the 2017 model that allows reverse shifting. I'm checking out other options, but have not found anything yet.

Regulations is Switzerland are a PITA and stupid at times. Rearsets that are allowed in whole European Union nedd a special testing and approval for CH. Since the cost are hiddeous, only few parts suppliers actually run through the testing procedure for this small market.

Rearsets of the 2017 model are different from 2015/2016 model. The passender footpegs are now separated from the rider footpegs. Not sure if the 2017 Monster S footpegs are identical with the 2016/2017 Monster R footpegs. The main problem is the wider quick shifter rod/sensor compared to the Monster R. The sensor is really wide compared to the R's version, which makes it impossible to make it work with the standard shift lever and sproket cover. You can work around the sproket cover with a different adaptor (i.e. from the Multi or Diavel), but then the shif lever is not wide enough

Well, I changed to GP-shift ten years ago and only had sport/race bikes in the past. I'm just used to GP-shift and find it more natural for up-shifts than the standard shift pattern. The Monster is my first ever naked bike. I also race 3-5 times a year and on track, standard shift defenately is not an option.
