Thanks Leon. Looking at what needs to be done to get everything back together and plugged in, I am sure I will take you up on that offer. Cheers!

Titanium Caliper bolts

As noted above, I purchased some Titanium Caliper bolts for the1199. Well, they came today.
They are very light weight, hollow and pre-drilled for safety wiring (Item# TIT6QA2973).

They are beautifully made and extremely light weight; but, unfortunately, and contrary to the guidance provided on Podium Racing's web site, these bolts do not frigging fit the Panigale; they are too long.
(See pic, OEM on the bottom, Item TIT6QA2973 on the top)

Anyway, I'll see if Podium Racing has the proper hardware and If so, I'll exchange for bolts of the proper length (approximately 2-and-3/8ths inches, see Pic) and let you know the item number.

I am going through this exact same process with my 1299, and am nearly done. Safety wiring the bolts (more specifically - obtaining pre-drilled bolts and/or drilling the bolts) has been the biggest barrier by far.

I've fitted a full exhaust, bellypan, race fairings (also currently at the painter), stripped out the radiator fan, carbon canister, all of the lights, etc. Used an IMU mount from a guy on this very forum.

But god damn, finding pre-drilled bolt sets is a pain. And I don't want to have to buy a drill press to do my own, but I guess I may have to...

OK; so I received a nice email from Gary at Podium Racing; they erred in sending me the 70 mm bolts instead of the 60 mm set. He is sending me the replacements along with a return shipping label. Very professional.
So, my advice is to phone in your order for these and specify the 60 mm set, or make a note of it when submitting your order on line.

Like I said, they really are extremely well made. Their web site and customer support information is provided below.

You may want to check out Sky Geek for safety wiring tools and supplies. The have the best prices by far; but, group your purchases because shipping costs can add up.

You may want to use this drill guide to aid in your work: Safety Wire Drill Guide, MT002 - Nut & Bolt Safety Wire Drill Guide This, and a mini drill press will do wonders to speed things along.

I was drilling bolts by hand (no drill press), and occasionally I will break a bit off inside the bolt. That's what happened with the caliper bolts and I used it as an excuse to go for these swanky titanium jewels.

Thumbs up Throttle Spacers

The throttle spacers arrived from panigalespacers.com yesterday.
The spacers eliminate the throttle slop that comes with the Panigale's throttle mechanism.
It took me less than 20 minutes to open the package, read the directions and install the product. A very simple and straight-forward installation process.
For me, the result was excellent, taking out virtually all of the 5 mm of slack I had in the throttle mechanism.
Since the bike is still awaiting some key structural components, I cannot test ride it and report to you how this will affect riding the bike; however, I know others have used the product and reported positive results.
Check out their Web site (link above) for informative photos and a video.
