The whole idea of the rubber wellnuts is that the rubber acts like an anti-vibration device. I only have mine done up as tight as I can twist the wellnut with my fingers (holding the screw with an allen key). The wellnuts are a bit of an arse to get into the holes on the screen so I just let the action of screwing them on pull them into the holes. The screen (Powerbronze Airflow) is too thick for the wellnuts to seat correctly anyway so they just get pulled into the holes until the rubber grips and holds them.
Just don't use copper grease on wellnuts because it causes damage to the rubber and they release the brass inserts. Red rubber grease is the stuff to get ... I got mine from a local tool supplier (not Halfords!), but your local friendly Ducati dealer would probably give you a bit in a bag that'd last you years.
