Your def going to want to fit all the CDT pieces before you paint them because your going to be doing some fitting. Better to get it fitted and fixed before you have to do it after you paint. Your going to be swearing a lot.

Yes, that's the plan. I've bought a lot of their stuff before and almost all of it needed some minor tweaking.

Great project.
It is definitely a huge help and makes the build much much easier. I've pretty much been staring at the engine for six weeks now while the whole airbox and swingarm saga carried on. Wish I'd gone down the Cerakoting route sooner, would have saved me weeks of waiting. It's not a cheap process but the end result is worth it. Pictures to follow.

Bit of a temporary setback yesterday as managed to shear off one of the shouldered bolts that holds the rigid sections of the front brake lines to the airbox. Front end and forks all had to come off again, as well as the airbox. Took it to a local Ducati specialist this morning and he had the bolt out by lunchtime. Airbox will now go back on tomorrow, as I am waiting on a set of the special toothed washers that are used under the nuts, to retain it to the heads. These cannot be used more than once, hence the delay. At least I am back on track and very relieved the bolt came out with no damage sustained. I had set the low range mini torque wrench to the correct figure and it is difficult to over-tighten these bolts, as the shoulder will contact the airbox before you bottom out the thread, so bemused as to why it sheared. I had also run a tap through all the holes as well. Could be a faulty or weak bolt but this time I will just use some Loctite 243 on a new bolt and tighten it by hand until it feels snug.
Thanks from Twistedracer

Managed to make quite a bit of progress this week as I've had a few days off work. Coming along nicely now. Fitted swing arm, hydraulics lines and calipers, ABS system, airbox, front forks, front mudguard, top yoke, handlebars, switchgear, bar end signals, steering damper, front and rear sub-frames, exhaust system, rearsets plus a bunch of other stuff. Still along way to go yet and tomorrow, hoping to complete the hydraulics before moving on to the electronics and wiring by the weekend. Here is where I am at so far. This picture also shows the colour matched Cerakoted airbox and swingarm well.

Had a local sheet metal company make up these brackets I drew up, in stainless steel, which will bolt to the back of the upper radiator to support the wiring loom for the Rapid Bike racing module, as it crosses the bike. The tiny 3mm holes are for zip ties to hold the loom in place. I got the idea from another forum member on here as it seemed like the neatest solution. The wiring on this bike is by far and away the most time consuming job and the OCD in me means it will have to be spot on.
