I finally had a chance to take my bike to the dealer.

He said not to get my hopes up as I am above the mileage for the emissions warranty Sad but he will submit it anyway.  I should find out in about a week.

I also went to my dealer yesterday. He took a few pictures and noted my mileage. I left but went back into the showroom a few minutes later to check out the new shirts and he was already at the computer up loading my pictures.  He told ne that "most" monster tanks have been covered.   Crossing my fingers!!

I hope you will still post a complaint with the NHTSA on safety grounds.  The ignition switch housing wearing through the tank until there is a fuel leak directly above the engine should be something an agency like the NHTSA OUGHT to be interested in!

Got mine replaced at 30k - though I was told by the dealer that it was something of a gift and went through because the AZ rep is cool.

I got word from Ducpond that my tank came in last week.  That's right at a month for an Acid Yellow tank.

I kinda liked the wider tank, but it was an issue on the track. I need to go to the new dealer and explain the whole thing.

Okay I must say, huge Props to Moto Dave and his crew at EastSide Moto Sports! I have never had such exceptional service from any dealership, car or motorcycle!   

Not only did Dave order my tank for replacement and go to bat for me, my 2006 is a year out of warranty, he used his personal vehicle to get me to and from my office. That's service! I will now only go to ESM for all services, parts and new bikes.

Dave made it so convenient to get warrantied, I didn't even have to bring my bike into the shop until the tank arrived. Way to set the high bar!

Now I have a shiny new tank and the reassurance there will not be any leaks. Oh I can latch the tank now!!! It's the simple things in life that keep me happy. 

Man, all I have to say is THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!

Hmm if it expands enough, think maybe I can get 200 miles on one tank?

Noticed a "ripple" in my left knee pocket a few weeks ago... nothing big, just that the left and right pocket weren't really the same.  Then this weekend I went to lift the tank to plug in the tender (damn cold, rainy PNW winters) and saw the right frame stay was about half way outside the frame, and the latch was almost touching the ignition.  Looks like a trip to DucSea soon.

interesting, i sort of assumed the material would expand in all directions which would make the volume smaller not larger.

if the volume is increasing and the outside is as well, then the tank wall is getting thinner..

NOT GOOD!
