I am the 3rd owner of a 2005 s2r 800. Will DNA still take care of my tank problem? Just bring it into the dealer and they take it from there?

I haven't heard anyone even being asked if they are the original owners.  As far as I know, 2nd/3rd owners will be covered.  Kudos to Ducati for that.

Next in line, 2nd owner
My story: today 07/09/10
Stop by my local Ducati dealer, to look for some gear, and tried on a ForceField vest, and the guy that was helping me out works there on the parts/sale.
So he says" you can go ahead and try it on lets go outside sit on your bike ( 05 s2r800) and see how it fits. I said Kool ok, head out sat on the bike . He looks at my DUCA and says I havent seen a yellow s2r around, I am " really," then told him" I want to custom paint it" He started to look for the tank said " You know your tank is expanded" I am " expanded how?"  Huh?  Shocked , I am in my mind " how" So he says " yeap these are expanding and if you paint it it will expanded the paint will be warping" kept going" yeah ducati is redesign the tank and working on new materials to build new tanks, so you are going to end up painting 2"

Ok so, I was concerned on my safety that's why I am here posting because Followed everything on the Original position research comments etc. and here I am writing about it!

Amazing how some can get a third tank while some only get grief trying to get their first replacement...

It is the dealers.  But it is mostly DNA's fault for not providing more clear guidance.  They are replacing every bad tank but need to provide the dealer network w more clear procedures.

I was a member here and the DML for many years before selling my S4Rs and jumping ship to KTM. Just to let you guys know, Superdukes also have this expanding gas tank problem. Two days ago I had to hammer a flathead screwdriver between my tank and the steering stem and had to pry that bastard into position in order to get it screwed on. Plastic tanks suck ass....

I would like to confirm that -- if they have the same maker and material, it would be very interesting.

Then the question is whether they are made of the same material.  If anyone has access to one please PM me.

Guy on the Ducati.ms Sport classic forum recently contacted the NHTSA and spoke to an administrator, who suggested he contact the Fed. Trade Commission. (see "tank probs- yes or no" at pg 63...) He was told the NHTSA can only discuss the problem with Ducati, and monitor them if they are actually working on a fix(ie. replacing tanks).

Also, apparently some of the SC guys are getting used tanks as replacements from Duc. and returning them. Maybe they do contract on the ride back to Italy.

Anyone have experience with CA CycleWorks' tanks?
http://www.ca-cycleworks.com/mtt43/

Much cheaper when paying out of pocket.

CDawg, thank you for posting that link.  Didn't know about that option.  Might have to get one of those some day if this issue persists with the OEM tanks.
