just recently we have been getting many calls and emails for coating the SF tanks.
We have done numerous Sport Classic, Monster, 1098/848, and Multistrada tanks in the past 24 plus months and 100 Plus tanks sealed so far with no returning issues.
Now the SF owners are really coming around to getting it coated professionally.
I have had my personal SC Paul Smart tank coated since early January and it has not budged or expanded. I can leave a full tank in the bike for weeks and no problems
Some SF owners are having the existing tank coated and other are sending them right out of the box when they receive their replacement tanks.
These tanks will shrink back if the gas is removed and the tank washed out and hung in a dry well ventilated place. surface or aesthetic bulges, paint blister or cracks will not disappear but can be painted but why go to that trouble when you can get a replacement.
you have til 5 years or 30,000Km (18,620 mile) to keep getting a replacement. after 5/30 they may not.
Cost for service is $225 plus what ever the shipping cost is to Southern California and back. Turn around is 7 to 10 days.
Let us know if we can help you

When you get the new tanks get them coated on the inside.
Save youself and ducati the hassel. You know the new tank is going to do the same thing, spend the 200 bucks and get it done. Sure they should come that way but they don't. At least ducati is replacing them. Its not really their
fault we have ethonol in our fuel. For now it is the only answer. You spend thousands on carbon and a keychain whats a couple hundred bucks to fix the problem for good?
