There are a number of tricks you learn for fast passages - for instance, depressing both Ab and Eb together with your LH pinkie and leaving them down for all the right-hand notes. Yes, forked-F comes out dreadfully sharp if you do this; No, at speed nobody can hear your duff note especially if you lip it down a fraction as you whizz past.

Very important to have your instrument in perfect regulation - that is, there should be NO change in voice on a lightly-fingered C# if you wiggle your LH D# key; and there should be NO change in any of the lightly-fingered RH notes if you wiggle your LH G# key. if either of these isn't right, you should get your instrument seen to before attempting Db/C# runs.
