DRS53 – Ducati Monster S4R / 696 / 796 / 1100 Rearset

. by virtue of a couple unusual design elements which Ducati incorporated in the S4R, they made this project a unique challenge. solving it in a way that not only delivered the adjustability our customers expect, but also doing so with the result of simple installation in a product of beauty appropriate to the motorcycle, became something of an obsession. seeing it for the first time in finished metal was nothing short of exhilirating for us.

The DRS53 is a fully adjustable, solid billet aluminum rearset system made for Ducati Monster S4R / 696 / 796 / 1100 models. It makes up one-half of a total Monster rips. The system has been created to provide complete adjustability, outstanding strength and rigidity, and distinctive looks which integrate with and complement the S4R design.

Used alone or together with the Cycle Cat BR series multi-adjustable bar mounting system, the DRS53 provides a range of footpeg and lever adjustment limited only by the motorcycle itself. For most, its adjustment potential greatly exceeds what will ever be needed.

As with all Cycle Cat rearset systems, the design and machining has been undertaken thoroughly and with great attention to detail and to very tight tolerances, resulting in a shifting and braking system which is extraordinarily smooth. This new kit incorporates Cycle Cat’s proprietary dual spline lever adjustment system, which keeps brake and shift linkage geometries fixed, in their stock position, while providing a broad range of lever position adjustment. Perhaps the best word to describe the DRS53 is dramatic, because it is – in terms of performance and geometry, machined beauty, and above all else, delivery of dialed-in ergonomics.

The DRS53 includes Cycle Cat’s all-new carbon fiber heel guards, designed to be fully functional throughout the extraordinary range of possible footpeg positions. As with all RS series rearsets, critical stock parts are reused, shift and brake geometry remains as stock, and nothing additional remains to purchased, customized, or modified by the user. Even the stock brake light switch bolts right up.

Nothing’s been compromised, nothing ignored. But perhaps the most exciting dimension of this new system is the range of adjustment possible.

The DRS53 system is designed to fine tune the footpeg and control positions for optimal handling and performance on Ducati Monster S4R / 696 / 796 / 1100. These motorcycles are, as stock, relatively unaggressive with respect to rider positioning, meaning rider posture is normally relatively upright, and weight distribution shifted rearward. As rider position becomes even more unaggressive, handling begins to suffer.

On the contrary, as rider position is made more aggressive, handling may be found to improve significantly.

Ultimately, it was our objective with the DRS53 to create a versatile means for dialing-in the fit of the foot position and controls, to accommodate any style of riding desired, and to take advantage of every inch of adjustment practical. The DRS53 meets and exceeds our objectives, and, we believe, succeeds in providing virtually any rider with an incomparable, easily-achieved, personalized riding position, for any kind of ride.

The unique mounting of the stock footpegs to the swingarm required an equally unique design solution.

As we studied what Ducati had achieved with their mounting method, we liked much of what it accomplished, and thus elected to retain the method of mounting in our design of the DRS53. This required that we design and produce a flexible bushing to replace the stock part, as it cannot be removed and reused. The design, development, and production of this bushing alone took over two months!
