I've read a lot and seen multiple threads re: how pleased others were with these. I'm currently over 2 hours away from a Ducati dealer, so I'm getting anxious to install these myself. Through reading reviews, I've found others not being able to fit these CF pieces properly and thus breaking parts of them. Does anyone have any experience with installing these pieces, how to install them, and any tips to look out for? Or, if your recommendation is to bite the time and money and let the dealer install them...

I appreciate your advice in advance, and keep the rubber side down.

It was an easy job on a 1199S. Sometimes there are little tabs on the air duct covers that you have to be careful with. If I recall you push the air duct covers towards the headlight or front of the bike to release them. Just take your time.

I have them on my bike and as long as you are careful with them they go on easily. Just take it slow and make sure you are removing them the correct direction and they will be fine. Mine are the Ducati OEM ones. That being said they don't seem super fragile but still be careful.

Cheers. Guido, at Shift-Tech actually located a video to assist. I'm very impressed with his level of client service, and the pieces look great. Thanks again for your assistance.

Cheers. That seems to be the case. The Shift-tech don't seem to have the tabs at the bottom of the covers, so hopefully a smooth sliding motion will do. Thanks again for your assistance.
