    Putting Panels back

    Having real trouble in replacing a panel any help please.
    All the panels are in place except the only one I removed and that is the black one with Ducati on it. I cannot get the pointed end to click in to keep it in place it keeps popping out . I am positive the two hooks have engaged when I push the panel towards the rear of the bike, and the two screws fit. Have tried and tried but still cannot get it right . I can see the slot for the front to push into but just keeps popping out.
    Cheers

    Iíve had the same issue, I hung everything including the tank cover loose assembled it all and locked the tank cover in place removed everything else tighted it up and refitted everything. The give away is the gaps at the rear of the tank cover once these are even you stand a chance it is a bit of a pain in the rocks but everything is set by the tank cover Iím sure people will have there own ideas this is what worked for me there is a YouTube video but mine didnít go together that easy!

    I watched the video and it took the guy 2 or 3 attempts or he took longer and it was edited. I am talking 2 to 3 days. I think I will leave it until it goes in for service in August. I presume there must be a knack.

    A few weeks back my right-hand black panel wouldnít go back in at the front. I went along to my dealer who said itís broken. He promptly ordered another under warranty  and fitted it when I returned from Italy. Great service!

    Mine will not go in the front slots either. I think it is because my tank cover is not adjusted properly, as Suba Dunc said. I have been too lazy to re do it :003:
    We're lost but we're making great time!

    Hi
    Bike went in for a service. I told the dealer that panel with Ducati on would not fit. The dealer sorted it and said the technician needed to take the lower nose  part off where there is a cut out for the front Ducati piece to push into. That panel has a metal clip to keep it in place and it had been pushed back. So when you tried to fit the front of the Ducati panel it would not go fully in the slot. hence why it popped out. He adjusted metal clip with pliers on the nose panel and hey presto a nice fit. As a side note it was a pleasure to watch the technician work, never in  a hurry, double checking for screw tightness , kept wiping the table the bike was on clean, always used protective mats etc etc.
