I'm not a structural engineer, but been in engineering a long time. Your number plate mount has a fatigue fracture point across where the weld is at the widest mounting point. The weight of the number plate lights, plate and even the bracket will fatigue the part so much that fracture is likely. It is unlikely to go quickly, more likely start in the corners and work across. Please keep a regular eye on it. Polishing and smoothing all edges will help. You do not want it flapping around your rear wheel.

You could use the first prototype as a sample and see how may bends it take before cracks start to propagate from the edges.

A lovely looking machine with lots of hard work gone in, it would be a shame to spoil it.

To add a matte protection for the carbon you could go with Swissvax Opaque as an option

I'm hoping it will be plenty string enough for the job but I'll keep an eye on it over time. Thanks for the advice - I'll be honest, I have no idea about such things!

Look what arrived in the post! Just need to get it stripped of paint and set to with the scotch pads...

I've also acquired a corse style carbon fibre short rear hugger and a carbon clutch cover. The hugger is from carbonworld.de as per the link below. The clutch cover is a CDT / Fullsix version of the corse item that is shown on the 1199 RS below.

Hugger:

I've also ordered some carbon tank protectors that mimic the RS style as well as the fluid reservoir holders - both from Carbott Composites who supplied the seat pad and bracket. Pics below:

My tank will be finished very similar:

They will look similar to the ones on the bike below:

I also acquired a Ducati Performance carbon shock cover like this one:

A few more bits are ready for putting on the bike. As mentioned before, I had been collecting several spare parts to get them powder coated as I want to save the originals. I also dropped the spare tank off for soda blasting which is about a mile from the nearest Ducati dealer so took the chance to order a few spares for when the tank is to be fitted. who knew screws could cost over £2 each!

Anyway, pics of the powdercoating:

Carbon tank protectors and fluid canister brackets arrived today. Just need some time to get in the garage to fit them to the bike. The quality is fantastic and even better than the seat pad.

Cheers Jon.

Best of luck with the das - it's changed a bit since I did it! I look forward to seeing a project thread on your bike in the future!

Cheers buddy.

Update - good news: the bodywork is with the painter getting refinished in matte and will be ready at the weekend!

I just need to find some time to get that fitted and then move on to the tank. It will be close to having it in a semi finished state!
