916 Carbon Fibre Airbox rubber

I went to a ducati dealer today to get e new airbox rubber, and what they had listed was nothing like what my wife's 916 has.

I've attached photos. Is someone able to give me a part number? OR, preferably, an aftermarket source for Ducati Superbike rubbers.

The part I was presented with looked so similar to a rubber out of our Toyota Hiace vans I was left in a state of anxiety . Particularly given that it was 400mm long and was $92 aud....

Regards, Greg.

It's not the factory part... but I used something like

on my aftermarket carbon 996 airrbox, and it sealed well.
Maybe you can find something similar?

The part has been superseded since the original 916 part. The newer part number is 79110411A

The main difference is the older rubber has a C section profile whereas the newer part is an O. The newer part number is way more successful at sealing the airbox; so much so that it is actually harder to get the tank located

The other thing I found when fitting the newer part to an older carbon airbox is that the holes were too small to accept the newer part and so need drilling out to the next size up.

Newer part looks like this:

I went to a local store and bought biggest D shaped foam sealer. One like this:
D black Foam Draught Self Adhesive Window Door Excluder Seal Strip Rubber 1-100m | eBay

TomTom uses it, so you know its the best
ProphetPVD and Serious Black like this.

Thanks for the information. I will get a price on the oem part and then probably buy the D foam.

Does anyone know of a well priced and reputable supplier of rubbers for the superbikes?

Regards, Greg

I just replaced the one on my 996 with the new oem part. Bit of a pig to fit, but boy does it seal well. Tank's a bitch to fit too :-)

+1, it is a little more difficult to fit the tank but it stops the leaks through the poor seal on the old style and keeps the tank more 'solid', definitely an improvement.
