PE10045DUCATI NORTH AMERICA11/04/201002/28/2011Fuel leak at pump/tank interface11V020000
 After opening this pe, we met with subject owners, dealers, and ducati north america personnel.we learned that the subject leakage is limited to the multistrada line alone and is unrelated to composite fuel tank deformation.rather it stems from the inability of the original sealing o-ring to conform to the tank's relatively rough sealing surface.recall 11v-020 provides a new x section o-ring to address the multistrada issue and with that recall, this pe is closed for the multistrada.meanwhile, unlike the multistrada, the monster line fails to exhibit a current safety defect trend and, on that basis, this pe is closed for those models as well.
PE10045DUCATI NORTH AMERICA11/04/2010Fuel Tank Leak
 Ducati is using a composite material in constructing fuel tanks on some motorcycle models.in some instances (the sport classic series, for example) the tank simply deforms but does not leak.however, leaks have been alleged in the subject fuel tanks when tank deformation compromises the o-ring seal between the tank and fuel pump.some owners report a pooling of fuel below the bike and/or on the engine when this occurs.web forums, too, are rife with related postings.most owners suspect the tank material is not compatiple with the ethanol found in today's highway vehicle gasoline.to learn more about this issue, odi is conducting this preliminary evaluation.

 2005 ducati monster 620 with a plastic tank that is expanding. the dimensions of the tank have changed so much that the tank now interferes with the tank latch, the handlebars now make contact with the tank when turning, and it is pressed against the ignition switch. the tank rubber mounts no longer rest on the frame. there have been no modifications made to this motorcycle that would lead to tank expansion, the fuel system and fuel pump and exhaust have not been modified. i am now very concerned with the safety of this motorcycle as well as any others that have a ducati with a plastic tank. if the tank swells enough, it could split open and i am very concerned that this could happen while riding. i took the bike to a local dealer who have authorized a warranty replacement and their believe is that the expansion is caused by ethanol additives in our fuel. this leads me to be concerned that my next tank will also expand and present the same safety hazard. *tr
