The fuel sensor just went out on my '13; it was the original (an "A" series sensor I guess). The bike is a long way out of warranty, but the service supervisor at my dealership (PJ's Motorcycles in Albuquerque) suggested we just submit the repair to Ducati. They responded within 30 minutes and took care of all costs. A "D" version of the sensor was installed. The dealer told me that they had not seen any of those come back yet, but from the above post, I guess that varies. I have used mostly Non-ethanol gas in our bike (we have good access to that gas here), but as we all know it's not always easy to find when traveling.

"Both were the D version. The last one lasted about 5k miles (about one year). I suspect that the ethanol in our gas is the problem."

I suspect the idiots forgot how to make a simple float!
My 2003 ST4s with 45,000 miles still functions perfectly! Ethanol and all...

I'm still on the 2nd sensor (the rev D sensor Ducati installed under warranty almost 2 years ago). Still functions properly and I ride my bike at least once a week.

Heya Ken... New member and fellow Austinite '13 MTS owner here, who also happens to have inherited the sender issue on my new-to-me steed. Previous owner had the bike since Sept of 2014 with the sensor failed the whole time and didn't replace, the Dallas dealer stating "of course we can replace it but why bother - it'll just fail again"... Ha! That said, I'm wondering if I can get it replaced under "goodwill" warranty as well. Mind sharing your contact at the local dealership? I've heard good things about Austin Ducati otherwise and had a good experience running my VIN with them before purchase a few months ago. Also if you're up for grabbing lunch or something sometime to talk shop a bit, shoot me a PM. I work near campus and live up in North Austin. Thanks!

Hi,

Ducati Austin is the best. The dealership was a major factor in my decision to buy my Multi. I think you'll be happy with whoever you talk to there. Several of us meet at the dealership on Saturday afternoons (4pm or so)....you're welcome to join us.

Thanks Ken. I have an appointment there this afternoon, and Tyler there said he'd work with his SM to at least cover labor since corporate would likely not cover the part (though he'd put in a request anyway)... So I'm out maybe $100 - not too shabby! Hope to see you guys out there a Saturday soon! Thanks again.

I had my fuel sensor replaced about 4-6 months ago, I'm assuming with the latest and greatest revision. I went out for a spin about 2 weeks ago and with a 1/4 tank stopped to fill up. Ironically enough after filling up and pulling away from the station I only had 1/8 tank and the fuel light came on and the gauge turned that pretty orange color.

Now I have to deal with calling them for a replacement and I'm tired of riding the 1 hour each way for warranty work on this machine. I am really going to push to make them come and pick the bike up to fix it but I am pretty sure they will not go for that. Very frustrating for a $22k+ motorcycle.

EDIT: This is on a 2016 1200S Touring.
