that would be funny if it happened to someone else. lol

We all know it's going to happen to you. Your dealer is probably closing their doors right now, with your replacement tank listed on ebay.  Kiss

My bike was an '05 and I just got a warranty last month.  I would still contact your dealer.

I have a 2007 Sport Classic. My dealer just ordered my second replacement tank yesterday.(11-28-09). My first tank was replaced in April of 09. That tank was shimmed this summer. Nothing offical from Ducati about if they've solved the problem or not yet. My dealer tells me that the tanks are covered for at least 5 years through the emmisions warranty. I haven't had any problems yet getting mine replaced.
There is a group going through PAKBIKES.net that are going to have their tanks sealed using Caswell Tank Seal. I waiting to see how this turns out.

I was just thinking of this the other day.  Like when you repair a rusted tank with POR 15 or something like that....  I just don't know if the product sticks to the plastic/nylon interior.

I don't believe either product will in the long run.

Not necessarily. 

The emissions warranty only goes to 5 years or 18,xxx miles, whichever happens first anyhow, and plenty of folks with much more than 18k miles are getting replacements.
