I know it is risky on the warrentee part but many people have
lined the tanks and no one has had the expansion problem!
Don't get me wrong SquireSCa, I forsure agree with your frustration,
I have had 11 ducatis and loved everyone of them.When i got my
R/s monster i put every dime of extra money i had into it. I would
just stare at it for hours. One day i tried to lift up the tank to service
the air filter and i could not unlock the tank latch! I was really pissed off.
I called the dealer and they jumped right on it and had another one
a week later. That was great! Problem solved! Wrong, One month later
the tank deformed again.This time it took a while to get another tank. So as soon as the other tank arrived i sold my beloved monster! So i saved some money
because i wanted another ducati(did not care to much for the streetfighter at that time) but i did not want a track bike so i went to portland moto corsa to see my buddy Arun about a new bike! He hooked me up on a test ride
on a streetfighter S a red one. Was not real impressed at first,but it grew on me. When i got back from the test ride Arun had wheeled out a White streetfighter S, I had to have it. I asked if there was any complaints about tank expansion on the streetfighter. He said none. I believe him. At that time there was no problems. Well 3 months old the tank is expanding. I was wrecked! But not totally shocked! I will try the tank liner and if it don't work i will get a carbon tank. I really do not know what else to do.
