Front and Rear Wheel:

But then I realized, these are NOT how the 2023 Ducati Panigale V4S sticker is located... I stick them a bit to the sides of the wheel... so I am buying another set of these RED Stickers and will "Experiment" a bit...
Having said that, they do lighten up the looks of the Silver Marchesini...
Next, time to install the front wheel speedometer mechanism:

Next adding the 5mm spacer since I will be using the RADIAL caliper so the offset of the Brembo T-Drive available for 998 is not enough (only 10mm) and it need to be 15mm thus the spacer:

Then install the Brembo T-Drive with ProTi titanium as usual:

Then test fit the Speedometer gear when I realized, the 5mm spacer made the ProTi titanium bolts on the Brembo T-Drive HIT the speedometer mechanism:

Well, this doesn't work...
So my solutions are:
a. Buy a 998R or 748R disk brake rotor with 15mm offset (so no need for spacer), but their center carrier/hat color is GOLD, and their design is not as nice as Brembo T-Drive
b. Brake-Tech made a 15mm disk brake rotor for 998R, but I don't like their PETAL design for the stainless steel rotor, and I don't want to have the STEEL/IRON version since they will rust (and come black coated)
c. There are some other brands, but all of them are PETAL or Wave in summary non of the design is good enough for me...
d. I can always forgo the speedometer gear and just use a spacer, but that means my speedometer will not work and I want my speedometer to work (if someday I ride this bike)
So, I decided to CNC machine a REPLICA of the Brembo T-Drive Carrier/Hat but with a 15mm offset so I can still have the Brembo T-Drive style...
I mean just look at the pictures below... the Brembo T-Drive just looks so nice:

Oh, this is how the speedometer cable is routed:
