I just bought a 99 996 and it has a carbon fiber air box, I take off the tank today and low and behold there is no filter under the tank, I see the stacks sticking out with no filter, should I be concerned? I took the thing for a ride before I bought it so I am worried some junk got down in the stacks??? Why would there not be an air filter under the tank? Was the guy I bought it from trying to hide some thing or make it run better short term???? Sorry for all the questions this is my first Ducati.

Thanks

Re: No air filter??? (Saxman)

The stock filters are in the air runners.

If it has CF air runners, I know there is one type with filters in them.

They are the stock runners and they are not there, I put my hand in there and could not find anything.

Also the tank moves from side to side, what could make the tank do that?

Invest in an inbox air filter that goes over the stacks.

Unless you have some real small hands, you're not going to be able to reach the filters. Pull the side skins and remove the Phillips screws that hold the runners together. The filters should be in there.

Thanks dude, I will do that, I am starting to feel a little better now. Why do you think the tank moves from side to side? What causes that?

There is a little dildo that is bolted onto the front of the tank. It fits into a hole in the frame that has a gromet in it. If that is loose it could cause the problem. And... if those little fittings come off and your engine eats them, it will cause big probs.

I will be getting one ASAP before the bike is even started again.

Thanks for the 411
