Still no metal replacement for the plastic quick connects on the 999? The stupid POS is leaking... WTF was Ducati thinking?!?!?
I wouldn't be doing the welding myself: I have a fabricator I've used in the past. At one point I added an oil cooler on a BMW Z3: to do it I had to use a take off plate to relocate the oil filter remotely. Since the clearance were very tight I had to weld the fittings on the takeoff plate. Here's a couple pix of his work:If you have the time hold off with any welding. You must be quite the welder to attempt welding to cast aluminum or alloy with the fuel pump on or even removed !!!!!!!
Maybe by tonight I can have some photos posted of the standoffs & strap. Gotta run
