Talking Replacing the screen for the Ducati tinted screen and installing the oil cooler guard

So I ordered the slightly higher tinted screen from my Ducati dealer along with the oil cooler guard for my 1299S. Now the dealer wanted to charge me $348 just to install these two items to which I politely told him where to go. So my question is it really can't be that hard to install these two items. The screen looks the easiest by undoing the bolts that hold the screen in and sliding it out and then sliding the new tinted one in and do up the bolts. If this is not the case then please can someone please tell me how it's done and also how the fairings come off to install the oil cooler guard ? Thanks guys

To do it correctly you have to remove the upper fairing, which requires removing the most of the body work.

Again this is to do it correctly. The oil cooler guard is no problem as he should be able to fit it when putting everything back together.

Its easy just time consuming. Be careful when removing air covers and side fairings, there are tabs that hold them together.

my first 1199 i replaced myself as im used to having super easy wind screens... This one i got tricked on. I did do it w/o removing the front cowl. I basically put a little piece of clear tape to the rubber mounts on the screen than slide it in. Put screws in it and the tape you never saw and it held them on perfectly long enough for me to get the screws in.. I was pretty proud of myself to say the least.. baha. 2nd pani shop did when they replaced my dash and only charged me 20$
Thanks from Wildbikes and Ijustwantone

I ordered the same screen. I'm hoping I can also get the install done without having to remove the front cowl. I was thinking of lightly supergluing the wellnuts onto the screen before sliding it into place.

That's what I did and it made it easy. A few here tried to crucify me for such blasphemy (using glue) but fuck 'em. Taking the front apart just to change the screen is bullshit.

Oops, I must have stumbled upon a thread on gixxer.com, because using superglue and tape is something a member over there would do.

Seriously, it takes like an extra 20 minutes to take off the front fairing. You really only have to do it once and you get an opportunity to to see the inside of your bike.

20 minutes? My dealer charges $48/30 minutes labor. I'll ask a tech about how long it'd take him. It looks like the dealer for the OP was estimating about two hours for the job.
