Mine has also been almost 2 months...  They say it is on the way though, hopefully by the end of the month.  I don't get why some are taking so long, and some people are getting there's in less than two weeks!

probably depends on the dealership, unfortunately.

I imagine part of it is the color, some are more common than others.  Mine is Acid Yellow and was only on the S2R for '05...

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.

got my tank today, what a difference! Again, mine was significantly warped as well.

Just signed up, haven't noticed anything TOO crazy with mine, but I suspect I am getting expansion.

Can one of the people who have received a new tank post a top down of your tank at the latch. I am looking to see just how far away from the ignition the tank is supposed to be.

TIA!

here you go... note the boss on the right side of the ignition lock. On my bike prior to the tank being replaced, the tank was rubbing on the lock and it was almost impossible to unlatch the tank.

Just filed mine with the NHTSA.  Pull down doesn't have 2006 S2R1000 listed so I filed it as a 2007 S2R1000.  I also subscribed to the Yahoo group.  I'll get the information to you shortly when I get home.

Funny thing was I noticed the tank's rubber feet didn't line up with the frame and I was having a difficult time getting the tank latch to hook up.  I thought I was going crazy.  Love my bike and I'd like to keep it for years.

My complaint was filed with the NHTSA, my warranty claim was filed with Ducati, and yesterday I got the call that the new tank had arrived at the dealer.   Guess I'll have it installed.

How do you guys get the tanks so quickly?

this is the email i receieved..

"Im sorry I havent been able to get back to you I've been out for a bit, unfortunately, the tank is still not in and its been over 2 months, everytime I process an availability for the tank it comes up as not available and will give a a backorder date, when I've contacted DNA they cannot give me a eta for the tank, I will stay on top of it for you and the minute I get any news I'll get back in contact with you."


I'm pretty sure they are just busting my balls from the get go...

They might be.  Although different dealers might have better or worse relationships w/ DNA.  That might have something to do w/ the expediancy of processing these claims.  I got my tank in 2 weeks; in August.  My dealer tried to give me the ol' "well its August, so don't expect this for atleast a month".  To which I replied, "Really?  I know for a fact that several people form the DMF have gotten their replacement tanks in 1-2 weeks this month (it was august). "
Needless to say, my tank arrived shortly thereafter.

 They told me my tank would be in some time in November. That was 2 weeks ago. So much to my surprise when I get there, to pick her up after the 7500mile check-up, I see a  new tank on bike. Swwweeet. Then they tell me they are closing the doors for good at the end of Oct. I almost wanted to puke.  vomit This will be the second dealer in the past 10 years to close in my area. Well the first just stopped selling duc's.

go to the dealership and be a squeaky wheel... actually, I took my bike up to a ducati shop I'd never been to before, showed them what was wrong with the tank, and they took very good care of me. I got my tank in 10 days.
