2015-2017 Panigale R stock Akrapovic Exhaust

Hi guys, tried searching for similar topic but canít seem to find similar problem that I am facing.

The top screw hole on the right side of the carbon fiber guard on the silencer is Ďenlargedí due to whatever reasons that thereís play on the guard. Seems that the recessed hole is somehow being enlarged. Screws are still tight, thus eliminating screws backing out. Is there an aftermarket carbon maker that sells jus the cover? Apparently, itís not a separate part which I can purchase from ducati, will need to purchase the whole silancer which costs a bomb!

Appreciate if someone can point me to a website where they sell the cover piece.

Many thanks!!

Can't use an attractive stainless washer with a collar?

Not sure if it's possible as there is a recessed portion, but will give it a go and see how it goes. Meanwhile if there's a aftermarket maker that do make the covers, do point me to that direction.

Thank you

The shield is a DP shield that has been out before they did the stock 15/16 R Akrapovic so to make things fit they had to open that hole so that's why they supply an oversized washer.

Update:

Apparently i overreacted, lol. The carbon has is perfected fine. What my mech told me is over time, the screw with the washer somehow got "thin" out, thus even when locked down, there is too much space in between thus causing it to seem loose. All he did was add a copper washer and all is well again!

Thank you all for the help!
