Okay, so finally filed a report.  Oddly, they have 696 in the drop down for '07 when it wasn't offered, but not the 695.  Oh, well.

My local dealer, Renaissance Motorcycles, said they ought to have a new tank for me in about a month.

Rode into work today- tank is so bad it's absurd.
BUT-
I'm reluctant to get a replacement. Wondering if I'd get denied a new improved version once our efforts to petition/ pressure Ducati into a permanent fix comes to fruition, claiming that I was already taken care of within the 5 year period.

In other words- has anyone got a warrenty statement on their replacement tank yet?

Thanks everyone!

at least one person i've communicated with has gotten a SECOND replacement.

my plan is to get a lifetime warranty on the replacement tank against expansion.  i don't know how likely that is, but it seems to me they have a manufacturing defect here and if they are just going to slap on the same kind of tank with the same kind of problem its not going to do anybody any good -- it just ends up delaying the same problem for another 2-3 years ( and in many cases, new owners )

They have to make it good.  if they sold a frame that broke and then replaced it with a frame that broke, you can bet they would have a lot more eyes on them. 

Make the NHTSA report and go ahead and get the replacement -- and make sure you're on my mailing list.  (see signup info in OP)

Just got my replacement tank yesterday.  No one at the shop could tell me if I was covered if this happens again in another 2-3 years.  Regarding the new tank...WOW, I can't believe how much the old one had warped!!!!!  I have sooo much room at the tank latch/ignition now.   I also had to readjust my steering stops, crickey that thing was wacked!!!  I actually have a near normal turning radius now.   waytogo

Now I just need to replace my tank pad.

Guess that's what we're worried about- in 2-3 yrs., you'll be out of warrenty.

Filed my report with the NHTSA today.  Interestingly enough, I noted another 2007 S4RS complaint about failed TPS sensors causing stalling.  I have already had my throttle bodies replaced TWICE on my bike for this very problem.  Looks like I'll be filing a second complaint after I get home and have access to my service records!

Oh, and it's been several weeks and I have not heard back from DucPond about my Warranty claim with Ducati.  <sigh>  Guess I'll have to call them and find out what's going on (or what's not going on, more likely.)

Word from Ducpond is that the warranty claim has been accepted by Ducati and a new tank will arrive on 9/14.

Are we talking about all non-metallic tanks here... such as the one on my 06 S2R1000?

I haven't noticed any problem with it as far as expansion or wavy sides...
Assuming this is on of the potentially affected bikes do I have to wait until there is a problem?
Doesn't seem right.
Once it has been identified as a problem I'd think that there should be a recall of all affected serial numbers... in a perfect world anyway.

So how about this non-perfect world, can I sign up as having one of the tanks that was built with a faulty process or do I have to wait until there is a problem?

All plastic tanks on all monsters are suspect.

No recall yet.  Not enough ppl filing NHTSA reports

I've got about 60 ppl on my signup list but only about 15 have filed.

Not gonna get a recall with only 15 reports on 20 diff bikes (year and model)
