Yes I do.

Ask any KTM owner what they heard and from whom regarding their tank deformation. I can't speak to that, but I would like to know.

When I own a bike and it has a quasi-serious fuel related issue, I'd like to know the Company is behind it and stands up to their responsibility. My experience with Ducati? No so much. I'm not exactly alone either.

How did I hear about it? Ducati forums and internet related websites. Word of mouth etc. No direct notification from the Big D.

However, I do know the same polymer and same supplier (Acerbis) is used by KTM. Since my KTM was made before the recent issue, I'd like to hear from a KTM owner on how they feel they've been made aware and treated of this issue. . .
