My first Duc!

Hello All,

Just bought a 2007 1098S. Sooo sexy! This is my first Ducati and I am so happy. I have been riding sportbikes since 1983 (Honda Interceptor) and have had about 20 bikes since then.

Anyway, looking forward to reading all the posts and learning more about my new toy!

There were a number of recalls and small problems with the 1098, 1098S, and 1098R's. The more memorable was that the thermistor burned out. This is the little device that senses low fuel level and turns on the low fuel level light. There's only one way to find out if this has happened.

Better that OP is prepared... 2007 is the first year so it has every problem that cropped up on these bikes: Reg/Rec, main bearing preload, rear sprocket, rad mounting, rear hub, fuel thermistor, cam timing marks, ECU tune, and I'm sure I've forgotten some.

Welcome to the club and start reading! Lots of info.

Well after so many years and 13k on the bike, shouldn't most of those issues be resolved already?

I have an 848, very similar bikes similar problems it took my voltage regular 50k miles before it went out some had theirs go out as low as 3k.

These bikes will last if you stay on top of them, itís not like my old CBR.. but itís a good thing if you get hooked youíll not only love riding it youíll enjoy keeping in maintained.

But Iíd think at 13k I agree hopefully the previous owner kept up.
