important is relative.
peace of mind important or life on the line important? 'd say somewhere in between.

when i had my valve cover leak at the track, i got a little oil on the rear tire... i was lucky since it was towards the end of the session...

you can go without for sure. but do you want to find out you couldn't?

PSA:

i missed one thing on the ...391 bolts.

the manufacturer made them with a M2.5 thread, whereas they need a M3 thread.
interestingly my 3D model and my drawing both say M3....

what i will do is contact him and have him redo the set.

optionally i could also get you all that have installed them already a M2.5 screw to put in instead.

sorry about the inconvenience. i can't explain how i overlooked it.
Thanks from Gecko and Twistedracer

Phil, this only matters if we're still using the side engine covers, right?

these bolts are different from the 8&1199, so here we go. plenty of interest in the other thread, this one is specific for the newer models.


Wouldn't fit 2016 Panigale 1199R since almost everything is similar to 1299? Except for the Race engine.

Correct!

It
Might work with a simple re-tap to M3.

Will be back Friday. Really inconvenient timing.
