I want to remove all the spacers under the right rearset since I took off the emis. cannister. I am trying to get the alum. bushing that the bolt goes thru at the exhaust can mounting bracket. I want the short left side bushing. All the Ducati Parts diagrams have the wrong P/N. When I orderby P/N I get a washer. All the dealers I order from are stumped, icluding FBF where I spent 45 min with Victor trying to suss this out. HELP!

Re:

I dont have a picture but the spacer looks like an aluminum mushroom with a hole bored thru it. If your bike is configured like mine, then you will have a longer one and a shorter one.I need the shorter one.I'm trying to dig up a drawing # from the S4 parts book.

Re:  need a "corrected"

What are the chances of needing that part again....... ::)

Take your "mushroom" and cut it down the thickness of the spacer. You will also need to cut down the bolts that thread into the engine casing, unless you got new ones. I cut all the bolts down and the spacer.

I used two narrow pieces of wood (to protect the finish) then clamped them in a vise and used a hack saw. Then sand or file the sharp ends and clean up the threads on the bolts. I would apply some spray paint to the ends to keep them from rusting. You can't see any of the cuts but sometimes the cut ends can leave a rust trail. Good luck.

Re:  need a "corrected"

Thanks Matt but my '02 has a turned down shoulder on the alum spacer that has to fit in the washer on the other side. I would prefer to use OEM parts rather than try to replicate this shoulder. I have already miked the bolts and holes in the engine case and I have plenty of depth. I think there may be a couple of differences between the '00s and the '02. Thanks for the help.

Re:  need a "corrected"

They made the left side like that on my 2000. I had to file that step down to fit some aftermarket pipes.

Carefull with the taps in the aluminum housing. The holes may be deep enough but the threads may not be full depth. I would carefully examine the holes to make sure the threads are full depth.

Good luck...

Re:  need a "corrected"  P/N

My parts manuals show the left side "bushing" as a 716.1.055.1A
Is that the part# you got?

Re:  need a "corrected"

Speeddog, thats the same # I have but when you order one, it comes thru as the washer with the little flange. I have orderedfrom 3 sources and examined stock a 2 dealers and they are all the same.I have looked at all the parts manuals forST framed Monsters and they all list the wrong #. It seems to be a system wide error. Victor a FBF is emailing a guy he knows @ Ducati to see if he can get to the bottom of this but I'm not holding my breath.

Re:  need a "corrected"  P/N

OK, I think I got it figured out...

The right side "mushroom" is a 711.1.090.1B

The left side "mushroom" shows as a 716.1.055.1A which we know is wrong, it's actually the flanged washer.

The flanged washer shows as a 711.1.090.1A
Notice the similarity in part# to the right side "mushroom" (711.1.090.1B)

Ducati just flamed out on the part# table, as the washer and the "mushroom" are items 10 and 9.

Try ordering the 711.1.090.1A, I bet it'll work.

Or, just put the spacer on the outside, like I did, and call it a day. ;)
