I need to replace my battery but can’t remove the dern plastic strap that holds it in place. The head of the bolt is fine but the threading underneath is just spinning in place. I can’t figure out how to access it. I read one or two other instances of this happening on other Ducatis but no clear resolution. Any ideas? FML....
I had this happen on my 2011, the brass thread insert is spinning in the plastic. My solution was to drill out the bolt and then do the same with the brass thread insert. Then install a rivnut and install the strap with another bolt same as the original.
