^^ Yes, it was a 5-minute once-over along with some picture-taking for the "inspection".

Then I went home and he called me a day or so later to tell me it was approved.

+1 that was my experience as well.

this was a while ago, when i had my valve guides replaced, i showed them the tank issue, and they said, theres no such thing as an expanding tank, my tank just needs to get adjusted ( tank mount, tank latch and rubber stops)

i wonder what they are saying now that Ducati has replaced thousands of them?

I dont care about them enough to ask. I went there for a warranty once out of the blue. They kept giving me various reasons as to why they need "another week". and then when i yelled at them, the parts were magically there.

Just added my name to the list. The gas tank on my 2007 M695 is now nearly impossible to latch/dislatch. Anyone know a good dealer in Atlanta-area who will take care of this?

The place I bought it is no longer in business (Atlanta Triumph Ducati)...

Take it to NPR Ducati, but they're not close. They're almost to Athens. If it wasn't a warranty issue, I would take it to the Duc Shop, but they don't do warranty.

I wouldn't recommend them, but you can probably also check with Atlanta Motor World up in Alpharetta or there's also the BMW dealership that sells Ducs. I still recommend taking it to NPR. You're taking your chances with the other 2.

Duccarlos - just got off the phone with Brett and NPR Ducati. He said I could email photos to them, along with the VIN and they'd order me a new tank - should arrive within a month from submission of photos.

Brett was totally up to speed with the problems plastic tank owners are having.

Good recommendation (it would appear).

Thanks!

NPR is hands down the best dealership in Georgia.

That is very cool that they'll let you send photos.  I'm sure they doublecheck when you bring the bike in.

Not sure why, assuming they are being paid to do the work. I'm not driving an hour each way to replace a perfectly good tank.

In any event, it'd be fine with me if they checked it out.

Anyone know how big these tanks will get? I took off the rear pivot mount and lengthened the holes so that I could slide the tank back a bit further. The tank fits properly again for the time being. chug

My old tank was almost 6 inches bigger in circumference. Your effort may be fine for you.  Some tanks are expanding irregularly.
