I was pulling the top of the airbox off my 2004 749R and the top of the plastic top of the front injector were the fuel line feeds snapped. Anybody know of a place that I can send these to for replacement. I would rather not spend $1,800 to replace from Ducati for a $2 piece that is broken.

There was a set of RS trumpets for sale on here a little while back...... The stock ones are plastic, the RS are Billet...

Thanks - it is the top of the actual injector as you can see in the picture the holder is fine and is all billet on the 749r

They are not standard! That looks like the supersport kit V stacks.... I'm sure the ones removed from my bike were black...

duramix 40/40

duramix40/40 is a rigid plastic epoxy and might do the trick to get you by until you can locate another. Just scuff up the two parts with 36 grit sandpaper to give the DM a good bonding surface. Sets up really quick and is rock hard over night. Other option would be buy or find someone with a plastic welder! you might be able to weld it back togeather. Worth a shot either way!

I would sleeve the two parts before epoxying. Call in at your local model shop and buy a piece of thin walled brass tube the same ID as the broken fitting. Carefully drill out the broken pieces to the OD of the brass pipe and epoxy the lot together. It will be stronger than the original part.

Thanks for the ideas I'll try. I've been trying to contact Magneti Marelli to see if they sell the part seperate
