Tell Me About "TANK SPREADING" ....

1228 12
I have an 07 SC biposto and an 06 SC Monoposto.... i have not heard of this tank spreading phenomena before so tell me where to look .... I am assuming it must happen at the front at the tank mounts that it would become noticable .....also is this a problem related to age, inside or outside storage, ambeint temperatures, ( ie is it more common say in Arizona than Quebec , Canada climates ?) or is it more common to particular year of SC ? has it been diagnosed by Ducati or do this just replace under warranty without explaination ?

Looking forward to some feedback on this one ...

Meanwhile thinking of doing my own one-of aluminum tank and tail section...

Your dealer is misinformed. None of us has been running with the evaporative can since we bought the bikes new. I just ordered my fifth GT tank, not even 3,000 miles, all w/o a can.
If 10% ethanol can result in the need for a replacement tank or two, you must be running neat moonshine in yours, Nimi. 'Fess up! ;)
