|JRW00089||Gents - would it be a good upgrade to put 999R throttle bodies with 12 hole injectors into this base 999, or would there be no noticeable difference? Thx Jim|

Here is what I used to replace the Ducati 999 lower fairing two screws & wellnuts:
1. I used the black Allen-head fastener because the head needs to recess into the screw hole.
2. I used the "silver clip" from the D-Ring Fastener so that it will slide onto the flange that formerly held the Wellnut.
3. I used pliers to "squeeze" the clip a just a bit, so the Fastener would reach into the attachment tangs.
Easy!! I took a long ride yesterday, and both fasteners and clips are in proper position.

Lower Fairing: Dzus Fasteners
Gents - a small improvement: I replaced the two rubber well nuts with 4mm Allen head Dzsus Fastners (same as the fairings), and quite pleased. The "clips" went into position easily and appear to have a sufficient amount of spring force to hold them in position on the receiving-tang. After owning a 848 I 'hate' the rubber well nuts, so very glad to get rid of these two.
In case the clip slides around; is there any advice on how to ensure the clip "stays" in the intended position? Epoxy or smaller fastener?
WOW! Today was first fast ride with the 999 since cleaning the air filters and the power difference is amazing. I'm 215 naked, bike will roll-on wheel up in first, every gear is better! Much more fun!!

Filters were grimed out totally....
* there is some forum issue with rotating photos unintentionally LOL
Gents - I have two maintenance items I wanted to do since bike is new to me: change brake & clutch fluids, & check/clean air filters.
Air-Filters: OMG... I took out the filters last night and the grime build-up was unbelievable. Almost no light was able to pass through the filters in any area. I can't believe the engine was able to run being so choked. Blockage plus maybe 1/16" of tar/dirt/oil/grime layering. I used a can of carb-n-choke cleaner, then a can of WD-40 and both filters were purged clean.
I started the bike without the filters - and DAMN!! Sounded mean & crisp!! Made me super happy. I reinstated the cleaned filters, and the engine sounded the same although just a bit quieter. I may still replace the filters, but for today, they are a million-percent better than they were!

Daaaang! Now that is some serious European gangsta lean! Don't think I have ever seen one lean over to the right like that before.
