Ducati Recalls 2007 Model 1098 for Two Defects

Ducati has issued a recall of certain 2007 Model 1098 motorcycles.

These recalls are a little different from the usual recalls I report on. The first recall is for 119 units that were already fixed before retail sale to customers. The second recall is for only two units.

Recall 1: On certain motorcycles, the horizontal cylinder head fitting to the thermostat produced a coolant leakage. Coolant leakage over the rear suspension and wheel could cause a crash.

Recall 2: On certain motorcycles, the horizontal and vertical cylinders mobile timing belt tensioner is dimensionally incorrect. The mobile tensioner can come into contact with the timing belt cover which could cause the timing belt to fail and consequently stop the engine increasing the risk of a crash.

Check out my Motorcycle Recalls feature for more details.

Had a problem myself with a timing belt, though Martin at http://www.halifaxbearings.com sorted me out. Stocks all sorts of dodge bearings too which is nice. :)
