The insight is to take the bike to the dealer and get it fixed...People like @sinjin
need to take there bikes to the dealer even for a wash so they don't break anything. For the rest ...don't worry that's what the warranty is for. This bolts was not torqued up to specs @sinjin
and the factory already took measures. K?
Ducati Warranty DOES NOT cover improperly installed parts. However, if the dealer does in fact perform the work and they do not take the proper precautions then they are obligated to fix their own mistake. Big difference and thanks for helping me drive that point home!
Again, you are wrong! Mburley just showed and agreed with Pete899 that it was indeed an issue with the anchor bolt.
There is also a big difference between cleaning your bike and having upgrades installed. At no time did I ever suggest that someone not perform the work themselves. What I did say was that there were potential complications while installing the lower radiator guard which is evident from this and other threads and discussions and that if the individual is not confident that they can safely do the installation, they should consider taking it to a tech that can... if that involves their dealer, then so be it.
What you said was that this was Bull$hit and the little bolt can not be responsible for the oil leak. Your words! When in fact, this has proven to be an issue and Evotech has in fact completely redesigned the method by which it is fastened to the bike.
