In natural light the grips are a brighter color than the Ohlins.

Just noticed my tank has spread today. Not sure if it's been the hot weather or what... but the grommets were a good 1-1.5" away from the proper seated position.

Anyone wanna save me 62 pages of surfing and give me a few hints/tips on what I'm about to endure from the folks at Ducati?

That looks way too far off for shimming so you get a new tank.

My third tank took about a week, but who knows how long right now. It all depends. I just noticed my tank is loose on both right and left sides. First time that happened. Usually it's just the right. Let's just all hope the rumors of Ducati actually fixing this mess are true.

2nd tank is spreading and buckling

Buckling across the fron of the tank near the stabilizer, and spreading outward to the point the fairing won't stay in the velcro.

This is the second tank from Ducati, the original never gave me a bit of trouble, this is a replacement from a low-side. The tank isn't even 8 months old and less than 4 tanks of fuel... Damn the ethanol fuel and the EPA to hell!!

Bring back the MTBE!!!
