Ducati is recalling 753 Streetfighters, 1098R’s, and 1198S’s Superbikes because of a potential fuel hose clamp issue. The recall affects only 2010 Streetfighters and 2009 Superbikes, and if left unresolved could result in the bike stalling from the lack of fuel, and potentially starting a fire.
Unless that’s your sort of thing, we suggest taking your bike down to your local Ducati dealership. Dealers will inspect, and if required replace and reposition the fuel hose retaining clamp free of charge. The recall is expected to begin during October 2009. Owners may contact Ducati at 800-231-6696.
As always, you can call the NHTSA at 1-888-327-4236, and reference campaign #09V381000.
