Happend to me right after 1200km service. The quick connection under the tank got unconnected when i was doing an overtaking at 110km/h, quite unpleasant. I see you have heated grips installed. I had mine installed at the 1200km service. I suspect they pulled the tank a bit to hard during the installation. Anyway they fixed it under warranty claim.

Does the leaking stop when you turn the bike totally off (display off)?

Had driven the bike hard for hours before so i too was really worried about the bike and me catching fire. What do you guys say it is a big chance for ignition?

Think it needs a spark to ignite it, mine had been in at Ducati 14 miles ago for some warranty work on the air box cover but unsure if they removed the tank!

Blimey not good :eek:. Weird about the vibes, I've just been away to the Lakes for a week and noticed a bolt has disappeared from my exhaust guard, must have been vibrated out! It's going in for it's 7500 service on 22nd. Haven't other people had problems with fuel leaks?

I believe it's the quick fit fuel pipe that fails but they will let me know tomorrow as Ducati actually forgot to pick my bike up today!! Not good after it took nearly 4 hours to get home last night, a full 3 hours waiting time and then nearly 30 mins at both ends to build the trailer (like a meccano set) and get the bike on and off the trailer.

New fuel pump needed!!! A clip had failed but you have to buy the whole system, what would of happened after my warranty? Big bill! I'm having doubts about the quality of these bikes, maybe triumph can do a me a good deal.

Ducati said they will take a pump off a new bike in the showroom as it would take a while to get the part which was very good service. Let's see how see runs when she gets back as missing her already! (Maybe I won't go to Triumph )

It all happened too quickly to be scared but it could of ended badly as my leg was covered in fuel! In fact I'm probably more scared now as this will be at the back of my mind on every ride also the wife is refusing to go on the back again as to what could of happened.

Glad they're seeing to it right away, Armo. Good you've still got warranty coverage, too. Did they happen to point out the particular clip? Thanks for the follow up.

Hi Sarah,

I'm hopefully picking the bike up today so I'll try and get a bit more info.

Cheers
