|FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE|
|I have a ducati monster 796. it is approximately 2-3 months old. after the first 6 weeks of riding the plastic fuel tank deformed to such a degree that fuel was leaking onto the engine casing and then to the ground in my parking garage. i was advised not to ride the bike in for repairs because the leaking fuel represented a combustion hazard. the defect posed a serious danger both to myself and other motorists on the roads of new york state. the problem has yet to be rectified by ducati north america but i have been told that the resolution to the problem will be to fit an identical fuel tank to the motorcycle that will presumably fail in a similar fashion to the first tank.|
