So like everyone in the uk, I took today by the scruff of the neck, and tried to put that 600 miles on the clock. 400 miles done !

But as my title may show, I had a slight boo boo!

So I need to pop my inhaler in the boot :) I didn't put the seat cowl on properly
:( it went for its own little ride.

The result :( cracked unit underside, and paint all scuffed up, gutted .

Does anyone know where I can by ducati paint ?

Cheers

Tosh

When I dropped my 848 I went to my local ducati dealer and was told by him ducati don't sell a touch-up or spray . They told me to go to a paint specialist that they use and the guys there will make an exact match.

Had the same issue last weekend too. My single seat cowl flew off when I accelerated hard.

Luckily enough I was able to retrieve, but I have a few scuffs also. I did think that the clip in mechanism was abit shoddy compared to my 848 and still feel I've got to give it a real thump just to get if secure.

Anyone else have the same?

As for paint, I agree with leeducati.

I purchased a second hand seat cowl for mine that had a small chip on it . I touched it up with my sons vauxhall corsa red touch up stick. Perfect match.

+1 on ColorRight. I've used them before and been pleased. They don't have the 2014 Ducatis showing on their site yet but do have the 2013 1199 colors.

Gutted for ya. I have to give mine a real thump to make sure it's fully home as have heard of this a few times now on the 899 and 1199.

Mine decided to take a ride yesterday flying along at 110mph on 134 in LA.. Needless to say I didn't try to retrieve it.. My local dealer gave me a modest 20% discount on the second one.. :(

This happened to me to think it was my own fault. The lechler paint codes are in the handbook but I went to the lechler body shop and you can't get them so I bought another but did this to the damaged one
