1098 Recalls

Just saw this on MCN from the UK:

The 1098 is recalled for two seperate problems
Ducati 1098 recall
By Steve Farrell

Ducati's 1098 is being recalled over two separate problems, the firm said today, Monday, May 14, 2007.

A statement issued by the firm said: "There are currently two safety recalls for the 1098 which are being dealt with under usual Department of Transport guidelines. The first recall concerns the cam belt pulley tensioners which were found to not be within specified tolerances during the early production of the bike. The second recall is for the fuel pipe clips which are checked for proper installation. In both cases the number of bikes affected is very small."

The firm has so far failed to confirm exactly how many bikes are affected or the precise symptoms of either problem. Spokesman Alan Jones said: "As far as we are aware, none of the fuel pipes checked so far has needed altering and we have not been made aware of any failures directly attributed to these recalls. It is not uncommon for there to be early issues with new models from all manufacturers and we are satisfied that any quality issues have been quickly addressed."

Thanks for the info! Good to see them stepping up with a recall... wonder if they'll do the same with the stalling issue?
