Non-Cosmetic Problems
For motorcycles exhibiting fuel leakage at the fuel pump flange seal, and presented for repair during the Extended Fuel Tank Warranty Period, Ducati will replace a factory-equipment O-ring with an X-ring to prevent fuel leaks at the fuel pump/tank interface.
For motorcycles exhibiting fuel tank pressure against the ignition unit, impeded access to the tank latch, difficulty raising or lowering the fuel tank, or misalignment of the rubber tank supports and presented for repair during the Extended Fuel Tank Warranty Period, Ducati will install a new fuel tank fitting kit. Ducati designed this fitting kit to reposition the fuel tank further back on the motorcycle frame so that any expansion of the fuel tank does not crowd the ignition unit, impede access to the tank latch, or affect the ability to raise or lower the fuel tank, and so that the side rubber supports will continue to fit the frame. If a repositioned fuel tank prevents closing or locking of the seat, Ducati will install a slightly shorter seat designed to eliminate the problem without affecting rider comfort.
For motorcycles exhibiting contact between the fuel tank and the handlebars at a full turn and presented for repair during the Extended Fuel Tank Warranty Period, Ducati will adjust the steering stops to remove such contact without affecting in any material way the turning performance of the motorcycle.
Cosmetic Distortions
For motorcycles with plastic fuel tanks exhibiting surface blistering, bubbling, rippling, dimpling, flattening, or spreading resulting from fuel tank expansion or an original manufacturing defect, or exhibiting surface scratches resulting from interference otherwise repaired under the Non-Cosmetic Extended Fuel Tank Warranty, Ducati will replace the fuel tank during the Cosmetic Extended Fuel Tank Warranty Period if (i) the surface imperfection is greater than three millimeters in size and easily and clearly visible to a passerby and (ii) there is not some other greater damage to the fuel tank not caused by fuel tank expansion or an original manufacturing defect, such as damage from an accident, motorcycle fall, other impact or wear and tear. Surface imperfections caused by wear and tear are not covered by the Cosmetic Extended Fuel Tank Warranty. The original two-year Ducati Limited Warranty will apply to surface imperfections from fuel tank expansion or original manufacturing defects which are smaller than three millimeters.
