1198S Rear carbon hugger issue

Hi all,

I've bought the Ducati Corse carbon rear hugger for my 1198S and the screws (M5X9) won't bed all the way in (hugger is very loose). Now it seems like I can't unscrew them (like it's spinning on the thread).

Anyone else had the same problem?

Thanks

Hey Alex ill have my SP up in Syd not this weekend, but the next, your welcome to have a look at my rear hugger setup and see how loose is normal. I cant help out with install, as Frasers installed it for me as a sweetner.

Hope this helps?

The correct screws for the hugger are the same as the side fairing to frame screws and should have the nylon washer fitted also to stop the movement.

I think the problem is that I wasn't given the nylon washers (didn't know about this). Will take the bike back to the dealer for a service so they can fix this.

Thanks for the information.
