Another item to check for loose bolts.

I was cleaning my 1199 yesterday and discovered that the aluminum sleeve that covers the exhaust silencer on the right side was very loose. There is two bolts that secure the sleeve to the muffler and one of them had backed out almost all the way. These are a pain in the ass to get to. I took a 8mm ratchet wrench and got to the bolts by going between the rear tire and muffler from the bottom of the bike. There's hardly any room so I could only turn the wrench in 1/4 turns. There is two bolts per sleeve (4 total) and all were loose.

Yes...happened to mine too. I had to remove my stock slip-ons, remove all 3 8mm bolts as I lost one already. Same thing happened...noticed it when I was cleaning my bike too...This is what i did...I installed lockwashers and put some loctite on it. Had to buy another 8mm bolt from my local hardware. Actually, there is a service tip from the Ducati dealers to perform and tighten all 4 8mm bolts upon the 1st 1,000km scheduled service...But mine happened before 1,000kms. Oh well, did it myself and I'm now so sure with lockwashers and loctite...those 8mm bolts wont come loose anymore.

Thanks for the info. I have the Termi's installed on mine now so does this issue exist for both stock and Termi?
I did notice 2 of the 4 bolts on the CF hugger backed out halfway that the dealer installed. Removed and applied some thread lock and reinstalled bolts.

Gawd this is going to suck. The ride back to my dealer is horrible- flat, hot, long boring highway ride to my death. I may have to let the recalls stack up over the year and then do them all at once if we're going to keep getting them. (as long as they aren't life threatening)

I had about 2200 miles on the odo when I noticed it. The sleeve wasn't loose on previous cleanings.

I see you're from OC. I'm originally from Anaslime. I'm glad i'm out but I do miss the year round riding weather.
