My fork pinch bolts finally arrived from forum member Phl. Thanks Phil. I also ordered one of these screen protectors for the instrument panel.

Did you get an answer from Desmo Veloce about the rear shock ?

Hi Brad. Yes I did. Have been busy of late so did not get around to posting it up. Here is what they said.

"Sorry for the delayed response....
For the billet mount - you need a shock eye as well and ride height adjuster. (This will remove the ride height adjuster) If you send me a picture of your shock - I can outline and provide pricing for everything you need....
Can you reply with a picture of your shock?"

TBH the picture they have on the site is a little misleading as it shows a picture of what looks like a stock shock mounted into the bracket, so it's not clear why the OEM one needs amending. I may well email them again as to why the need for change, as I am not keen to alter the setup just to make it a double shear mounting.
Thanks from bradp51

On the home stretch in terms of the wiring. Sheared one of the IMU mounting studs this morning, at a very low and recommended torque figure, so have ordered another. Headlight mounting will have to wait until Monday. About 90% of the loom is on and in place. Hope to be able to apply power early next week to check out all the electrical systems.

Next step will be to temporarily fit the tank, fill the coolant system and then fire her up to check all is well. After that it's on to the bodywork to test fit the carbon panels, then they can go off to the paintshop. Still waiting on my OZ wheels which will hopefully arrive next week. After that the bike has to go off to have a new chain fitted and the hydraulic system filled and bled. Plenty to be getting on with.

Rear light and new under-tail CDT carbon piece are fitted (both of which have been' Ventureshielded' to protect against stone chips and the CDT carbon number plate hangar fitted. Aside from the seat and panels the rear end is now done. Also fitted the newly clear coated rear hugger. I've included a picture of the bike as it stands today. Still a bit of a mess in terms of the front end wiring. I really need to fit the front wheel so that I can turn the steering lock-to-lock to check the cable runs are not fouling.

The routeing of the left hand loom from the handlebars is quite critical, especially with the electronic steering damper and connections to the Ohlins sensor unit. It is more a case of trial and error and reference to the workshop manual to get it just right.

Tonight I finished wiring up some new plug n' play OEM connectors for the Oberon bar end turn signals so most of the fiddly stuff is behind me.

Had to modify the CDT 1199 ABS cover to fit the 1299 as there is a larger cut out on the left hand side to accommodate the different routeing of the ABS lines. Also the clearance between it and the lower radiator pipe was tight, so I shaved off a little material to ensure no contact takes place. Also while I'm waiting for the replacement IMU mounting stud to arrive, decided to unbox my CDT order and trial fit the carbon side fairings and seat panels. Tomorrow I will check on the headlight fairing and how it fits. I also picked up a NANO cleaning kit from CDT. The instrument cover is off to be clear coated. I will be dropping the carbon panels and the carbon lower fairings (which have to be stripped and repainted due to the new paint scheme planned) at the paint shop next week.

Did you get the CDT lower panels? Those are the only pieces that requires a bit of fitting. Also make sure you have a good fit on the upper panels where they fit to the front fairing (two screws). On some of the fairings, the screw tabs were glued too far out which leaves a large gap in the fit. We removed these on some of the uppers we got and re glued them back a few mm whiched fixed the fit issue. The carbon air duct covers are a bitch as well. There just isn't any "give" in the slide tabs so "tweaking to fit" is a challenge. I have fixed more than a few sets of those (tabs too long, tabs too short, grooves too short etc) and those tabs will snap off before they bend. Bike is a giant jigsaw puzzle when it comes to the small pieces.
