Hi Just joined forum,so bear with me.
I have a Icon 6 mths old, on Friday bike stopped, when I pulled over fuel was leaking from under tank.
Bike had to be returned to dealer.
Any body else had this problem?
Same thing happened to me with brand new bike with 40 miles on it. I had just picked it up from the dealer. Sprayed gas all over me and the hot bike. Dealer says they took tank off and fuel hose had worked loose. I posted a longer thread about it. Ducati needs to address this. My situation could have been very bad. Dealer being very good about it. We'll see what Ducati does.
Same as Ghostman, mine had 120 miles on it, fuel all over me and a hot engine, had to be towed. The dealer replaced the fuel pump. When I was searching around, it seemed around a dozen people had reported it happening to them.
FWIW I did report it to the NHTSA, with a long writeup and pictures, and I would suggest that others do the same.
I've got about 600 miles on mine now, been OK since the fix. Except the battery was dead when I picked it up at the dealer.
Definitely made a new purchase a bit sour.
Blackie, make sure they tug on the lines connecting to the fuel pump, others have had to have theirs replaced. They might not be aware there's a problem with some of them.
The plastic collars that form part of the quick release on the fuel cassette are very fragile. They have 4 crappy little plastic teeth that once snapped, mean the fuel line does not lock into the cassette properly, it's just pushed in.
I fortunately found this was an issue while adjusting breather pipes, not through a leaking fuel issue.
To replace these crappy little plastic collars, it requires ordering a whole new fuel cassette (£650 uk)
To get the fuel lines out of the cassette requires squeezing the exact points on these collars and pulling quite forcibly on the fuel line. A main dealer was responsible for breaking mine, so it seems this quick release mechanism is worryingly vulnerable. Negating any benefits of it being 'quick release'
Agreed .. I rebuilt the fuel system on my 748 after 16 years of ownership, and the connections were still superior to what the Scrambler has. In fact, I bought new connection parts beforehand, but opted to leave the originals in. They were fine, and reusable.
