You will need new bolts. Once the shields go in a couple of the fixings had to be longer to go through the shield and in to the cam cover. I have heard people having to loosen the sub frame to get them in/out?
Thanks from Rayzor

Yes, you need 2 new bolts (both sides rear CH cover bolts) as well as 2 or 3 new screws. Subframe needs to be lifted and there is a wire on left side that needs to be slightly rerouted (at least when you remove those covers as I did). Easiest way to figure out which bolts and screws you need is to compare a spare part diagram from a 2012 e.g. with a 2014 models. Itbis a bite more work than what you would expect. Removed mine for better air circulation around the CH as well as for better look. I did not feel any increased heat to my legs from that and I am sure most of the heat you feel is from exhaust header.
Thanks from tinus675 and Rayzor

Thanks for the offer. Iíll let you know if I need it. Iím gonna see if dealer will cover. If not Iíll hunt down parts.

Because it’s not a safety issue it’s technically not a recall and they have no obligation to give it to you, but I’m sure the parts can be bought.

My bike was a leftover 2012 that I bought new in April 2013. The dealer had just gotten their first “kit” in and put it on my bike when I made the deal on it but before I took delivery. I cannot imagine how hot it must have been without the kit because it still gets damn hot in stop and go driving in hot weather, which we have a lot of in Houston. Bit out moving at highway speeds it’s fine.

Bought mine new in 2012, and the heat shields were not yet available. Either at the 600 mile service, or the recall for the turn signal switch, dealer offered to put them on. I declined. Dealer gave the parts to me in a box. Tech said they had to at least deliver the parts.

So it's possible the previous owner had them sitting in a box somewhere.

Thank you. Itís possible as Iím not original owner, hopefully dealer would have records. If thatís the case maybe Iíll just get the aftermarket carbon ones depending on the fit. Read some donít fit/line up well.

Got off the phone with dealer. He said my bike dies not qualify for the heat shield/engine cover package. Called Ducati USA customer service, he took my last 8 digits of vin and said same. I asked why some 1199’s qualify and some don’t when all later models had them. He said bikes are built in batches and my batch is not affected. 2012 1199 with production date 4/2012.
