Today my buddy who is graciously doing my tail chop in his shop informed my tank is having this.  I had no clue.  Once he pointed it out it was obviously - the tank's frame rests were obviously pushed out.

I had no clue this was going on - I've been out of the loop and really haven't read much on here for awhile though.  Thank god for good bike buddies!

signed up today. My dealer said no problem getting a replacement. But my problem is that its custom painted. I think I'm going to wait till winter and let it sit for a month and see if it shrinks back, then coat the inside.

It WILL shrink back.

You have to remove the tank, remove all the guts and hang it up to dry for about 1-2-3 months.  Apparently, the tanks that Bologna's gotten back under replacement are all shrunken back to original size.

I cannot say if the condition of the tank is worth a shite though after it has expanded.  It would be NICE if they would shrink back and be 100%.  If so, then coating is the solution.  but you have to make sure it is completely dry, maybe use rice on it.

Just purchased this past week a 2005 Monster S2R 800 with approximately 5400 miles.
At time of purchase, I was aware of the tank issue, which this bike did have.
Long story short, this bike was a good deal that I couldn't pass up.

Just got off the phone today with the service manager of Ducati NY and was advised that Ducati is no longer honoring warranty claims on the tank issues if the tank is just showing typical sighs of expansion.
He further advised that a warranty claim may be covered in cases where the tank is leaking or other extreme no-start issues.

Can anyone advise further.

TIA


Well, just a followup...

Had a a service appointment at Ducati NY today and the service manager didn't budge from his position.

Quote:
"Ducati NA will not cover tank replacement if the tank is not leaking."

I showed him the latch around the ignition, the rubber mounts, the ripples and the handlebar hitting at full locks, left and right.

And asked, have you had customers come in riding their Ducatis with leaking tanks?

He "affirmatively" said "YES" and said you'll be amazed how many still do without a tank replacement Roll Eyes

So I guess its off to Cliff's or Gold Coast.

Maybe he's running a personal record of how many claims he rejects...

The worst part was how he tried to explain it "convincingly"...
