Hi All,
I'm replacing my air filter and so obviously removed the side fairing panels to start the process.
When I removed the left one (left when sat on the bike), a random nut fell out.
I'm not sure where it is from, any ideas?

Thanks.
I'm away from the bikes at the moment so can't double check but I don't recall having to remove any side panels.
Just remove the regulator and the square-ish panel that sits behind the front wheel, the air filter is inside there. All torx screws.

Looks like one of the nuts keeping the headlight assembly in place. They should be visible if you look underneath the top triple clamp (looking from the tank side forward).

Hi,

Hui... the side fairing panels definitely need removing first. They have three allen bolts each holding them in place.

Max... just checked and those nuts are bigger than the random but. All those headlight nuts are in place.

Thanks

Hi there,
The same thing has just happened to me.
Can't see where the little chap goes, or any matching nuts.
Did you find out where it goes.
Many thanks

Hello,
Many thanks for getting back to me.
Sure is, just the same as yours. lol.
I have just gone through the workshop manual 873 pages hoping to identify a home for our nut.
Found nothing resembling the little nut.
Is your bike a Sixty2 ?
Could someone be having a little joke with us??
There is no way that nut came loose, not on a bike with only 500 miles on it.
It's a mystery.
Anyway mine shall live in my toolbox till I find where it should be.

I fitted a K&N air filter, what did you go for?

Ride Safe
Best Wishes from a rainy cold Northern Ireland.

Hi,

It is rather odd that we both have the same random nut. There must be somewhere that it's meant to be?! We need to ask Ducati directly maybe?

I went for the pipercross air filter, should be delivered today so I'll fit it later.

Thanks

From the Ducati Dealer ;
Spoke to **** in the workshop and that nut doesn’t even come on a scrambler Sixty2.
He was saying he has had a case or two before where he has found a nut or something similar extra that must have come from the factory.
So it is nothing to worry about, but if you would like us to have a look at it just for your peace of mind let me know.

I'm happy with this, as I have been unable too find a match of this nut on my Scrambler.
They are a superb Ducati dealer, I look forward to purchasing my next Ducati.

The only nut matching that in the pic (flanged M6?) is from the front mudguard. Item 19 in this pic.

Derek,
Good job well spotted.
Unfortunately the Sixty2 has a one piece front mudguard bolted directly to the fork legs.
The random nut has been the production line messing about.
Nut fight on Friday afternoon.
I could have a Friday bike, oh no!!
