I was advised by my local Ducati dealer that a simple o-ring for my fuel pump/ fuel tank was a "special order" item and that they needed 5-7 weeks to bring it in. On top of that I needed to pay for the order at time of ordering for a mere $28/ o-ring.
Just wanted to post that after a little searching I found the o-ring at John Deere for $6.00. I know that even that is expensive for a o-ring, but it is Saturday and none of the usual gasket/ seal places are open today. So if anyone needs one like I did.... nothin' runs like a Deere
If anyone cares I can post up the item# later.
PS- as it turns out if I REALLY wanted a "Ducati" o-ring I'll be in Italy in 3 weeks, so technically I could get one faster than the dealership.
