F4 Broken Plastic Rear Fairing Pivot Pins

So, lifting up my seat this morning on my F4, I heard a click and a pop.

Turns out it was one of the plastic pins (part number 800090905) that connects the tail hinge to the seat plate. Apparently the pin on the other side was already snapped off and I had not noticed.

Is anyone aware of a source for metal replacements?

There is an Ebay seller of aluminium pins.

Don't for get to push down on the tail as you pop the lock, then pull the seat back a fraction as you lift it to take the strain offa them little pins ; )

If you are struggling I probably have a set of pins plastic somewhere.

cheers

Thanks. Saw that they may be interchangeable with Ducati pins. I'll check with my local Duc dealer on Tuesday.

I still might have the original plastic ones too if you want them. For US, Starwind and Hawking down in Texas have the billet ones.
