Motorcycle Recall - Ducati

NHTSA Campaign ID:  09V170000
Component:  Fuel System, Gasoline: Delivery
Manufacturer:  Ducati North America
Recall Date: 05/15/2009
Potential Number of Units Affected: 1549
Defect Summary:
Ducati is recalling 1,549 model year 2009 1198, 1198 S, 1098 R, 848 and model year 2010 F1098 Streetfighter and Streetfighter S motorcycles. These motorcycles may experience fuel leakage from the fuel line at the fuel injector connection. The plastic fitting between fuel injector and hose can warp or break which could possibly result in a potential hazard to the rider and possible damage to the motorcycle.
Consequence Summary:
Any damage to the fuel line may lead to an increased risk of fire or an unexpected loss of engine performance, thereby increasing the risk of a crash.
Corrective Summary:
Dealers will replace the affected injector components free of charge. The recall is expected to begin during June 2009. To locate your nearest authorized Ducati dealer, you may go to and select the "dealer locator" or you may call toll free at 800-231-6696.
