Just got my bike about a month ago and has about 856km. This is what happened today. Any one had same issue before or I am too lucky?
Btw, not first service yet. They suggest me when it reaches 1,000km and bring the bike for first service.
Thanks for the advice, I will contact Ducati Canada directly.I don't know how Ducati handles repairing possible major oil leaks (yank the motor & completly tear it down) because I just went the rounds with Toyota on my 4 month old Tacoma needing the motor pulled for a timing chain cover gasket leak requiring the engine removed & taken down to the short block!!
I wanted to tell them to shove the POS up there ass.......but due to a 4 month wait to get another one I leaned on them hard enough to get oil & filter changes every 5000 miles & extended power train warrantee for 10 years 100,000 miles
That's how bad I hated some flat rate mechanic removing my engine on a brand new truck being as anal as I am.
That being said if your motor comes out tell them to keep it & you want a new bike because I don't care how professional they say the guy doing it is you can still tell it's been apart by the way every fastener no matter how much care was taken WILL have socket & wrench marks on them not to mention possible frame scratches, case markings & excessive ducabond squeezing out of every engine mating serface
Anybody that knows what a pristine Ducati looks like WILL be able to see it
The water pump is blocked off from the oil passages on the motor end, the design lets the seal weep externally unless it mechanically fails at the metal end. Look at an exploded diagram and it'll make sense.Did it fill the motor with water?
Meaning your oiling system with water.........that's a major problem on a high strung engine possibly rod bearings lubricated with antifreeze /water mix? That makes a pretty shitty lubricant let alone having everything from your gearbox to the oil cooler contaminated with that shit
I should know that... Happened to my friends Diavel.Too much oil isnt going to burst gaskets or seals. The engine has a crankcase breather, an over-fill can result in oil being pushed out of the breather and into the airbox. Most airboxes have a drain hose but oil can go into the intake.
What method has Ducati decided to drive it?The water pump is blocked off from the oil passages on the motor end, the design lets the seal weep externally unless it mechanically fails at the metal end. Look at an exploded diagram and it'll make sense.
Gear drivenWhat method has Ducati decided to drive it?
Water pump shaft connected to some internally lubricated component like crankshaft or camshaft to spin it? Coolant can & will leak past a pump shaft seal @ 15psi coolant pressure.
Or belt driven & compleatly isolated from any lubricated component? (That one CAN'T leak oil just coolant)
