Post 1098 radiator leak
Does anyone know if there is recall for this issue? I'm finding out the this is a common problem.
I have a 1098 2007 with 9,000+ miles and like others I find it hard to believe that I'm having issues with the radiator already. The leak is on the top left corner of the radiator.

If there's no recall does anyone know if these radiators can be repaired? Is it worth it? It seems like new radiators are pricy.

Thanks!!
Frank R.

have you tried calling the dealer to see if a recall is active?

fixing it might depend on the material of the radiator.

FYI,

So it turns out that Ducati will be replacing the radiator at no charge according to the dealer. It seems the radiators have been a problem.
