Ducati North America is recalling a number of its XDiavel power cruisers for final drive pulley that may not have been sufficiently tightened at the factory. The recall affects 1,433 units, bike manufactured between July 7th, 2015 to June 22nd, 2016.
With the pulley not properly tightened, there might be a loss of power to the rear wheel, which increases the risk of a crash. As such, Ducati dealerships will install a new washer under the final drive pulley, in order to increase the tightening torque. This will be done free of charge.
Ducati will notify affect XDiavel owners. This recall is expected to begin November 7th, 2016. Concerned owners may contact Ducati customer service at 1-800-231-6696, and reference recall number RCL-16-003.
As always, the NHTSA is also available at 1-888-327-4236 and safercar.gov.
