As usual, the moment I buy a new bike I start spending countless hours looking at photos and reading what others have done. The results of my research for this project can be found in the items that follow (watch for links to my reviews and videos which provide more details of my experience with each).
Competition Werkes started in Ward McKee's garage in 1984, as a second source of income to support his dirt track racing habit. His idea of eliminating the rear fender to enhance the looks of his sportbike caught on. By 1986 his "Fender Eliminator Kit" was being distributed to dealers across the United States by TARGA, a Southern California based sportbike accessory distributor.
In 2000, Ward brought all the manufacturing of his stainless steel products in-house. This enabled him to ensure quality, fine tuned design and inventory control. With the equipment and personnel to advance his product, Ward began expanding. 2003 brought the innovative "Limited" kits and their pivot mounts. 2006 brought a true race inspired exhaust line called WerkesUSA.
With products being distributed worldwide by a host of companies, Competition Werkes now employs about 15 people out of its 12,000 square foot facility in Sutherlin Oregon. Furthermore, Competition Werkes is the most recognized name in the "Fender Eliminator" market in which it started.

Under the direction of Mark Todd, Sargent Cycle Products North America is now a division of Mark One Industries Inc. and is known world-wide for premium motorcycle seating products and accessories.
World Sport Performance Seat - at Sargent
The following details come from their website, but they have some great details on their Diavel Seat web page (see link above) that is a MUST read. My review describes in detail the seat that was made for Project Diavel - which includes some of their options.
Utilizing the latest digital modeling, computer design (CAD) techniques, precise manufacturing processes, and superior materials, the World Sport Performance Seat for the Ducati Diavel features a precision-molded PVC Acrylic Alloy Seat Pan for superior fit and is outfitted with high-quality hardware. This super tough, lightweight material provides an exceptional high-performance seat foundation.
Gel-Free! Superior comfort and suspension without the thermal retention and extra weight of gel. Sargent's Super Cell Atomic Foam suspension is their own unique and proprietary blend of resilience, firmness, and vibration-absorption qualities - making it well-suited for maximum long distance comfort. The seat foam is contoured for enhanced lateral support and a more neutral seating angle allowing full use of the seating area. The passenger area has been enhanced for added comfort but still allows for the OEM rear cowl.
In addition, the World Sport Seat for the Ducati Diavel features their marine-grade, UV-stabilized, color-coordinated upholstery. These materials are hand-sewn and installed specifically to maximize the suspension qualities of the Super Cell Foam, and they are virtually maintenance free.
Retail price at time of this project: World Sport Performance Seat ($440) + All Leather Upgrade ($200) + Heated Front ($199) + Heated Rear ($199) + Italian front strap ($30)

Their founder Sebastian Bursig is a successful motorcycle racer, having taken numerous podiums and several championships in the GSXR Cup series, the F800 Cup, and the Superduke Cup. In the early 2000's, Sebastian saw the need for a new type of stand which would be quicker, easier and more versatile, and the BURSIG stand was born. The first prototype was built for the K5 GSXR 1000, and Sebastian soon had requests from fellow racers in the pits to build more. Full scale commercial production began in Germany in 2006, with the line-up of supported motorcycles rapidly swelling to over 115 different models.
Since 2005 over 15,000 stands have been shipped to over 70 countries around the world. Currently over 50 race teams worldwide utilize the stands, including the following: Yamaha Motorsports, HMC KTM, Apex Mfg., Wilbers BMW IDM Team, Fastbike Service IDM Team, GTR Racing Team, HPC Power Suzuki Team Langstrecken Meister 2014

Rapid Bike gleans their experience from the race-track which created the technical premises to develop a range of add-on electronic modules for every need: this is the winning background allowing Rapid Bike to be considered as a leader in the field of motorbike engine calibration.
Rapidbike project - developed thanks to preceding experiences gained in the motorbike sector – officially comes to light in 2004 with the objective of offering add-on modules for fast adjustments of the engine management without interventions on the original ECU.
RB Evo Tuner - at RapidBike
The Evo module manages up to 8 injectors and modulates the signal up to two O2 sensors (up to 2 lambdas). The purpose of the O2 sensor (lambda) modulation is to prevent the stock ECU from recognizing the adjustment applied by the RapidBike module to the injection map without any further attempts to re-set the stock parameters matching the criteria fixed by the restrictive exhaust gas emission laws.
It is a universal application since it can work in both directions, by push or pull (not in both directions at the same time). The owner does no need to replace this sensor in
case he purchases a new bike model or changes the operating of the gear lever (1st gear up or new rear set). The sensor detects the force applied and consequently sends a signal, therefore there are no moving parts which can be damaged after using for a long period of time. The digital display is used to set which way to upshift (push or pull) and to set the preload pressure (measured in Kg) which is necessary for activation.
The origins of NADSL date back to 1973 when Jaume Xicola Gascón founded the company in Vallés Oriental not far from Barcelona. In the 80’s, the sector underwent a significant industrial overhaul, which is when NADSL began an important cycle of growth, taking advantage of the entry of the principal Japanese motorcycle manufactures into the European market: YAMAHA, HONDA and SUZUKI. It was nearing the end of the 90’s, when NADSL decided to enter the aftermarket business by launching the first SHAD top case, featuring 22 liters of capacity. The product line also featured corresponding luggage accessories and mounting applications for the main motorcycles and scooters of that period. Between 1998 and 2010, NADSL acquired ever more ambitious and technologically complex projects, becoming market leader in Europe for manufacturing and design of motorcycle seats and luggage for the OEM sector. Today NADSL serves as the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) to BMW Motorrrad, exclusively supplying top cases and side panniers for the R1200GS, F650Gs, F700Gs, F800GS, F800GT, F800R K1200R, K1300R/S and seats for the K1500GT, R1200RT, S1000RR and the entire BMW GS Series. SHAD is currently the second most important company worldwide in manufacturing and marketing top cases, which under its trademark, distributes the SHAD brand now present in more than 60 countries. SHAD USA is the North American arm and distribution center for SHAD products in the USA.
Integrated design: The side mounting integrates itself better with the bike.
Lightness: Less weight to cause nearly no change in the bike’s center of gravity, hence improving safety.
Easy to assemble.

The Naked New Generation screens have a specific design for each bike that perfectly adapts to the various shapes of these succesful models
The BMC air filter is composed of a metallic mesh covered by an oiled multilayer cotton filtration material. This guarantees a high level of filtering efficiency and a limited loss of air pressure. The oil used gives the material its “sticky” adhesive characteristic which aids in the retention of air impurities, without compromising or blocking air flow penetration. This also creates a continuous filtering process. The cotton filtrating element is contained within an external support frame which interfaces with the air box and allows it to be securely installed in the air-box. Every stage of the production process (from design to manufaturing) is carried out in Italy by italian engineers using the finest materials.
BMC operates in a number of areas: automotive, racing, aerospace, nautical and industrial, according to the specific regulations and requirements of each and every one of this sectors. Consequently, BMC tests are severe and thorough, thus ensuring the highest quality in respect to paper, foam and plastic materials. The technical solutions used by BMC are derived from the results of a continuous and intense programme of laboratory tests. BMC carries out filtration tests in reference to the international standards for filtering (ISO 5011). BMC Air Filters have a 98.5% filtering efficiency in respect to this standard.
BMC air filters are produced using a "Full Moulding" system that enables the characteristic red filter to be realized from a single mould with no welded joints thus avoiding easy breakage. The rubber used in BMC air filtering systems has a long life, is very durable and has optimum adhesion characteristics to all shapes of airboxes.
BMC filters are made of a multi-layered cotton gauze soaked with low viscosity oil covered with an epoxy coated alloy mesh to ensure protection from petrol fumes and oxidization due to air humidity.
All BMC air filters are pre-oiled, and they can be washed and regenerated by using the appropriate BMC regeneration kit.
Bellissi Moto offers more after market products for the Diavel from one location than any other web site you will find. If you like one stop shopping, this is the place for you!

DUCABIKE Brake and Clutch Reservoir Caps - at BellissiMoto
One of the great things about BellissiMoto is they stock many of the DUCABIKE products, so you are very likely to get them quickly. I originally wasn't going to replace the stock covers, until I saw the great quality of DUCABIKE products - and it seemed a little out of place to have the other parts and not have these matching them. They are made of billet aluminum and have carbon fiber inserts. I ordered the black set.
Ducati 55mm/30mm Steel Wheel Nut Socket - at BellissiMoto
Wheel nut tool for the Diavel. It is two tools in one - a 55mm 12pt for the rear and a 30mm for the front. This tool is CNC machined out of high grade steel and then nickel plated so it will never rust or corrode. This is a must have tool because the local Honda/Yamaha dealers will not have a socket to change your rear tire.
Wheel Socket - $40
Cox Case Saver - at BellissiMoto
It you have a chain on your bike and that chain breaks, it is going to fly somewhere (likely forward, then out the back). If it flies into your case, you will have a cracked case - and then I hope your bike is under warranty - if not, you better know a good aluminum welder. This part is cheap insurance.
Case Saver - $30
Chain Adjuster Tool - at BellissiMoto
A Ducati chain adjuster tool for the Diavel's single sided swing arm. This tool is CNC machined out of billet aluminum.
Chain Tool - $16
The history of Dainese began in Molvena, Italy in 1972. Lino Dainese, a young motorcyclist and businessman, started designing and making protective clothing for bike riders. Taking inspiration from the geometry of medieval armoury and from nature itself, Dainese made technological innovation for protection during sports their true mission. To Dainese safety means protection, comfort and reliability, factors which, when properly balanced, lead to the creation of highly effective products which meet the requirements of a wide range of customer needs.
From Giacomo Agostini to Valentino Rossi, Dainese became part of motorcycling with the greatest riders thanks to their invention of products like back protectors, knee sliders or the evolution of existing products with the introduction of innovative technologies and materials.
AGV Corsa Circuit - at AGV
The carbon-fibre/glass-fibre/aramid SSL (Super Super Light) shell was designed using FEM techniques (Finite Elements Analysis) and features EPS internal ducts in the shell to provide a small, light helmet which is both comfortable and extremely safe. The result is a helmet that is significantly superior than the limits set by ECE standards and that weighs just 1350 g (refers to MS size ECE 2205 version).
Unlike the Pista GP, the Corsa comes with a system for opening and closing the air vents which makes it a less extreme, more versatile helmet. The entire ventilation system was designed using computational fluid dynamic modelling and wind tunnel tests. This helmet is highly efficient at removing heat and moisture from the rider's head. Thanks to its large rear spoiler, the Corsa boasts first class performance in terms of aerodynamic penetration and high speed stability. Overall, the visor aperture is 9% bigger meaning a 15° improvement in vision which obviously enhances the active safety factor.
The fit of the Corsa was developed using “Human Engineering” whereby the design starts from the surfaces in contact with the wearer's head. The inside of the helmet starts with a concave 3D structure that is pre-shaped to match the contours of the rider's head and any surfaces in contact with the head are stitch-free. The Lycra® and Shalimar® sanitized internal components are fully adjustable due to the fact that the position and depth of the crown pad can be modified as can the thickness of the cheek pads.
The combination of these solutions, which are covered by three separate patents, make the Corsa fit the different cranial shapes as never before.

This is another one of those "should have been OEM on Carbon model" items. Since it is a DP product, the carbon fiber is a perfect match. I had red racing stripes painted on it to continue the red theme.
I am not a fan of "antenna" looking mirrors on bikes. I took my CRG bar end mirrors off of my other bike and bought adapters for the Diavel. Note: Another great option is the Driven bar end mirrors found at Bellissimoto.
