My tank will be replaced soon, but it is my understanding that Ducati replaces the defective tank with new tank that has the same qualities and characteristics that caused the original tank to become expanded and defective.

What if Toyota replaced their faulty, sticking throttle linkage with another faulty, sticking throttle linkage?

Doesn't Ducati get it? The concept is to eliminate the problem, not to continue with the same manufacturing process that caused the problem in the first place.

Is there anything that Ducati owners, as a group, could do to change Ducati's way of thinking on this?

I had noticed some expansion late last year, think I sighned up but never 'registered' took pics etc.

Been using non-ethanol this year whenever possible and noticed my tank 'back to normal' (tank pads resting quare on frame again).
Non-Ethanol no longer available (in VT afaik) - so, I'll continue to keep an eye on it.

Excellent info from Ducatiz re: cause of expansion (nylon absorbing water that is absorbed by ethanol).

Had my plastic tank replaced today on my 07 S2R 1K. Ironically, I was about 5 miles from the dealer on a busy 4 lane freeway when my bike shut down due to fueling issues. Luckily, I was able to coast to the side of the road. Once stopped, I sloshed the fuel around and got it going again. The service manager said that my bike most likely stalled because of debris inside the tank caused by the expansion.

Ducati needs to get its act together on these plastic tanks.

Holy shit, I thought you had been sacrificed to Mayan gods or something.

Currently, the new tanks are the same material and are just as likely to expand.

The coatings work, but that's on your own dime.  If you get the inside coated, it will not expand.

The SBKs that are used for homologation in WSBK have aluminum tanks.  All the other bikes have nylon tanks.
