Just came from my dealer who told me that they were told no bikes were shipping to dealers from this point due to the fuel part not agreeing with US fuel additives.

Dealer was unable to even guess when they would get shipment. They apparently haven't even been told how Ducati will handle this issue. The bikes are here (in the US) so will they retro fit them before they deliver to the dealers or once they get all the parts send them with the bikes for the dealers to handle? No one seems to know.

If you already got your bike, stand by for a recall.

My dealer has already received the parts to fix the recall. Unfortunately, he only received a black 'S' model for the demo...not the red one like we anticipated.

Really? Huh and I thought my dealer had their stuff together. I'm starting to think that their not quite what they crack themselves up to be.

Same here, they have the part for replacement, except they only have a red S and not the black I ordered.

In the recall announcement posted in another thread, they plan for the recall to be implemented in June.

You're right, but my dealer already fixed the demo bike when they received it. Since they already have the parts, they went ahead and did the fix...

I have been told the same thing from my dealer Ducati Seattle who are NOT full of BS just to placate customers. Sure its a bummer having to wait but hey.... get it right before you send it to me... thats a customer focused business.
