Exclamation SL Mag Front Wheel Rotor Bolts

While changing the axle (TPO Parts) and the sonic wheel (ABS sensor ring chrome plated) on my SL, I checked the 10 rotor bolts....

I already guessed it, but now I have the facts:
The titanium rotor bolts of the SL are M8x1.25 x 25mm. They are 5mm longer than on all other Panigales. That's why some of you guys might have stripped the threads when installing SL rims, see http://ducati1299.com/ducati-1199/24...ve-rotors.html

Torque is the same (from the SL workshop manual): 30Nm

Adding weight by chrome plating is a bit contradictory, isn't it
?

Calculated the weight of the chromed surface and remove this by filing from the wheel

Thank you for the post. Very helpful.

Does this axle make any difference in front end feel / performance or is it purely a weight saving item?

Either way, thank you for sharing!

Good information Gecko. But why did all threads on one side fail while none on the other, for me,can not understand..

On the T rotors, the non Sensor ring side, the bolt heads are recessed (countersunk) 4mm. That is not the case on the ring side that's why you need the 4mm spacers/washers under the Sensor ring so technically the non ring side bolts can be 4-5mm shorter than the ring side. Just use the ring side length all the way around as at least on the OZ wheels the bolt holes do not bottom. Do not install the sensor ring on a T rotor or rotor with countersunk head hold without the spacers/washers. You will deform the ring.
