Thanked 1 Time in 1 Post
Thanks for the rivet nuts! If it werent for those, I would have had to make a trip to Pro Italia to buy those damn rubber ones again just to have them fail the next time I take out the injector covers.

guys, installation is very easy, just mix up some JB-Quick (5 minute version of JB Weld) and put a ring of JB around the rivet nut, insert into the airbox turning it as you push it in, like a screw. Once seated all the way, clean up the excess JB-Quick with q-tips coated with WD-40. I didnt even have to remove the air box to install these. I carefully removed the old wellnuts and went to work.

Took me less than 10 minutes to do all 4, and Ill never have to worry about those damn wellnuts again thanks to Noel!

If you live in the SoCal area, Ill be more than happy to help you do them. Just get the rivet nuts and some JB Quick and pm me for my number.

for you guys and gals wondering where to get rivet nuts.....

the easiest place is McMaster-Carr..
part # 94020A371..... M4x0.7 alloy rivet nuts, 25 in a pack $10.40....shipping was $4.25.....

thats enough to do 6 air boxes.....spread them around, I do!

while you're ordering things from McMaster-Carr get some O-rings too

part#9452k197....the big fuel pump plate ones...... 25/$7.48
part#9262K141....the quick disconnect ones.........100/$5.72

the fuel pump plate ones are ~$18 EACH at the dealership, hey tell your Ducati friends too....this way they are $0.30 plus shipping

buying all this stuff ....$27.85 is the same as going to the dealership for 1 big O-ring and 4 wellnuts!!!!!!! and you didn't have to go anywhere...LOL


and you end up with a life time supply

Thanks, Noel, for making me one of the lucky six! After todays test ride, I'll be doing the "Noel's Nuts" mod! I also have some more tasty carbon to install and a locking black shining gas cap from Tamburinin Corse....

Keep your words soft and sweet, for someday you shall eat them....

I use them (rivnuts) on my Race airbox, they are a common tool in my trade ( Sparky ), I have even used them on my swing-arm to more securely attach the hugger and chain guard, always crimped in.

I would not recommend the epoxy method(sorry Noel) unless you know what you're doing. On the F4's, different models have different length trumpets, and this can cause the long rivnuts to knock against the trumpets, eventually dislodging them. Although they will not fall into the motor, you will probably loose that little cover in the wind.
So if you insist on doing the epoxy thing, make sure you shorten the rivnut enough to avoid this from happening.

go to McMaster-Carr online, buy the parts, have them sent to me,
i'll send them to you, you'll owe me ~$4 postage

too easy and you get them for less than i do!.....no 10% sales tax

takes ~3-5 days

i go to the post office ~3 times a week and its only 20 meters from my Bank lol

i have a stack of mailers and customs forms at my desk

i don't mind helping you people out, i do the same thing on ApriliaForum.com

its payback!
