so sorry for what's happening. is your dealer any good? this is my first ducati and my dealer called me when the recall parts arrived last year when my bike was covered for winter and said they would hold them. i called last week because my rear brake line got air therefore no rear brake. they picked up my bike and fixed the line under warranty. they also had my parts being held for the drive pulley recall and kickstand recall. they fixed them all with the parts they held since november. i live in ct and new haven powersports keeps their word and repaired the bike perfectly. you cannot tell the pulley cover was even removed. even the bolts had no sign of marks. i am lucky to have a good dealer keeping their word. they also have 3 ducati wrenches in the winter. i know ducati dealers are not in many places. i know people who drive from nearby states to them in new haven ct. i have been concerned of the recalls since i bought the bike at the end of august knowing i would not ride in the winter. my warranty is burning as my bike stands still for the most part. i still love my xdiavel s. and wish you better luck with yours. i just got fed up with harley after 40 years of riding and got the ducati. i know they're very different but this ducati is fricken cool.This is a picture of mine. Mind you they want to just clean the threads up with a dye and reuse it. I am so pissed I spent this much money on a bike and that is how Ducati wants to fix it? What else do they hack together if they let this go?
