I Ride: 2012 Ducati 1199 Panigale S
Radiator Guard Bolt and Heat Shield Bolts

Hi Guys,

I felt so defeated this weekend... I was trying to install my radiator guard I had purchased for my 1199 Panigale S and the 2.5mm hex screw came out with ease on one side and the other side has been stripped. I tried spraying WD40 on the bolt but no luck any suggestions?

Also, I noted my heat shield was a little bit loose and tried removing the screw heads. Then I thought why would they use screw heads... turns out they were sheet metal screws does anyone have any suggestions or remedies for this?

Thanks for the help!

-Mike

Same thing happened to me when installing mine. I ended up using a dremmel to cut a notch in the bolt head and used a flat head bit to remove.
