Air Filter Replacement...

I did the same teardown this weekend to swap out the original OEM air filter for a fresh K&N on my 2015 MTS/S. As you mentioned, an empty tank is lighter than a full one. Was running on fumes prior to starting work.

As I didn't have anyone available to help out, I sat the tank down where the seat goes and steadied it with one of the city garbage bins.

Just curious, does your bike have a 'diaper-looking' pad that sits between the bottom of the tank and top of the air box? Mine does... ahh... did... got pissed off at it when I was trying to remount the fuel tank... kept sliding around on me. As it was 37°c at the time, my patience level was Critically low... so I left it off. Do you have any clue as to why Ducati put it there? The tank is secure without it... so I'm at a loss.
