If you are building this model you will find fitting the front of the fairing is a real headache, needing one to squeeze fingers into cockpit and fit tiny screws through fairing mount and into the mirror stalks. Tried and tried but eventually did the following:

1. Remove handlebars to give better access.
2. Use a longer screw to get mirror stalk positioned, fit the adjacent screw, then replacing the long screw.
3. Putting rubber bands around rear of screen to squeeze the fairing and help screws to line up.

Still not easy but get you there, though refitting bars is a tricky.

Interested to know if anyone has fitted fairing sides yet? I am convinced the screw hole at the front, under the headlight, is in the wrong place.

Hi Beemer ;)

I followed this video Pocher uploaded: https://youtu.be/zXLOQQjS248

The space is very limited and it´s certainly not the easiest part of the assembly but I managed to do it in this way (also the screw under the headlight). It didn´t take too long. The oil helped quite a lot with the rear views.

Mine is now being shown without fairings, battery tray, cylinder-head covers and all those horrible burdens the street bikes need to have :D . I love the the look it has in this way.

Finished!
Really enjoyable build. Some frustrating times trying to interpret the manual - there is a limit to how helpful a manual can be when all it uses are line drawings( in an attempt to make it multilingual). But there Lamborghini manuals are the same. I do think an inexperienced modeller would struggle. Most parts fit and go together well. A few are more enigmatic, especially the fairing. I think it looks good without extra embellishments, very realistic, though keen modellers could do much to 'improve' it.

BTW there are plenty of screws supplied so no worries if you lose one or two.

Re: Pocher Ducati Panigale Super Bike

Hey guys, new to the forum and just read thru all the Pocher Panigale builds. I received my kit about a month ago and have been collecting all manner of "stuff" to do a major conversion of the base kit to a replica SuperBike. The one MAJOR gripe I have with this kit is the fact that after forking out over $800 BUCKS CDN, you would think the designers would include REAL BOLTS...!!*&^%#@ what a crock to put those gawd awful Phillips head screws in a kit of this stature...!

I really must protest to Pocher that this was a real crummy move to use these "un-scale like" screws...!

To that end I have ordered multiple sets of cap screws and shoulder screws in metric to mimic the actual ones on the real bike. Lots of carbon fibre decals, assorted hoses and steel braided lines will be added.

Here is a pics link of scheme I want to do...http://www.ducati-superbikes.com/index. ... ition-150/

Hope to post pics of different parts of the construction now that I have a decent DSLR to work with.

Some really good tips/suggestions here guys. Great help.

See ya soon.

Thanks number1. Inspite of all the criticism here, it is still a great kit and with a little care(head scratching and swearing)produces a model which, to this motorcyclists eye, is a joy to behold.

Hi Guys!

ran into a problem with the screw holding the rear brake assembly to the swing-arm. This screw is used to slide-adjust the chain (I think). The crew is totally undersized and just spins in the hole. I measured the screw and it is correct so the hole must be to big. Anybody else come across this?
