What bits are missing???

Alright,

Just on with putting a rear light and also numberplate hanger on my new 749, but seem to be missing something???

Basically, the numberplate bracket does not mate up with the shape/holes of the can when metal to metal... Am I missing a rubber bracket or spacers etc?

Also the same is with the rear light cluster, I have the plastic disk and associated metal heat shield, but they do not mate up to the 4 threaded rods on the underside of the baffler, definatly missing something???

Any help would be great,

Cheers,

Diehard

P.S. I have just put five 749 items on eBay, including a yellow tank and single seat unit, have a search under 'diehard800' as seller

Download the parts manual for your bike from the Ducati website, as this gives you an excellent view of which bits go where!

They certainly look sturdy bits of kit.The R&G one seems to be good value as you also get a replacement l.e.d light and mini indicators.(If thats your thang!)
As with all 749/999 tail tidies,be carefull when using a full sized legal number plate.Some of them get real close to the rear tyre on full suspension compression.I have lost a couple in the past.
I've got a Ducati Performance carbon tidy on my 999S.Not the cheapest,(110),but looks the business.

No worries, we're all nice and helpful here!
A good tip for buying parts is to check the price with your friendly dealer first before checking ebay or similar- sometimes it's cheaper to buy direct from the dealer!

Just been checking and they are about 3.05 for one of the brackets and also 3.74 for the other.

Need two of each so looking at about 15 for the lot, not too bad, although priced up air filters at the same time and eyes nearly watered :S

Have you checked the cost of Pipercross air filters?

For my 748, they're about 18 a pair so not only are they cheaper than the OEM filters, but they perform better and they reusable!

Check the usual replacement filters like Pipercross, K&N, etc.
