Ducati Thermistor. Replaceable part# 552.4.048.1A

About $56 depending on where you get it. I think the dealer sold it to me for about that much too.

It's attached to the fuel pump assembly (part #9 if you're looking at the schematic for the fuel pump). Pull the tank, drop the pump out, swap the thermistor and button it back up.

I replaced my thermistor 2 years ago after running out of gas and having to push it 1 mile to the nearest gas station. The new part looked a little different from the old one maybe updated, but it fixed it.

Ugghhh.....I just experienced the dreaded no low fuel light on my 1098S. Ran out of gas and found myself pushing my bike nearly a half mile on Interstate 5. Not fun . Got home and immediately researched the issue in this forum. Tons of good information. I have an appointment to get it serviced on this coming week, service tech mentioned thermistor straight away as the possible culprit. In the meantime, it's eyes on the trip meter.

It's a 30 minute fix I've done personally on my 1098S (ran out of gas on 15N around Aero Dr area). I hope the shop doesn't charge you too much for the work or if they do, you're okay with it. Easy DIY fix if you decided to do it.

Thanks for the info Agr0. I took it in, since I have an extended warranty. Turns out it was the thermistor and they will replace it under warranty (RPM). I still ended up having to pay for diagnostics though (1/2 hr labor @ $48 + tax). I was told the thermistor was about a $45 part, so in this case, it turns out to be a break even scenario.

Pay for diagnosis, why is that not part of the warranty claim?

Very good question bstar360 and I "suspect" the diagnosis will be covered in the claim. I intend to confirm when I take it in for the thermistor install. It's currently on order. This shop seems very (overly) cautious on warranty repairs. Don't know if they got burned in the past or what. They are saying I pay for everything when service is rendered (including diagnostics) and then when the claim goes through, I'll be reimbursed. It has never worked that way on any car extended warranty repairs I've had. I will quiz them more when I go back to see what's what, I just wasn't was too alarmed since it was a "relatively" inexpensive repair. However, if this is going to be standard practice, I'm going to take my business elsewhere. Couldn't imagine trying to front the bill for an engine failure or similarly costly repair out of pocket first.

What about you guys out there, does this method of customer paying for warranty repairs with reimbursement afterwards sound legit or standard practice in your experience? Interested in arming myself with knowledge. I get it, they don't want to have to wait to get paid, but I believe that's a warranty company - service department issue. FYI, I am dealing with a reputable Ducati - MV Augusta - Husky dealership in my local area.

Good info here. I suspect my problem (2008 848) is the Thermister. As small as that thing is, I can't believe they're charging $48-$56 for it.............wait a minuet.........yes i can. Oh well...

Went for a ride yesterday and finally got to test my low warning light!!! IT WORKS 😎😱 lol. It came on with exactly 1 gallon in the tank. Right when it came on I was next to a gas station so I topped it off and it added 3.1 gallons to the tank.

Bringing this old thread to life. So i have the low fuel light not working but it works when i cycle the key, it illuminate on the cluster during the self check, well i thought its for sure the Thermistor like every one else, Pulled tank , pulled fuel pump and removed the Thermistor . Used my meter to test it & it passed with flying colors , So i constructed a circuit with light bulb to mimic the same circuit on the bike to prove the result , used a small container of fuel as a fuel tank .

Connected the batter ..with thermistor not in the fuel the light slowly comes on as it should and stay on , as soon as i dip it in the fuel it cools off and the light turns off .To me that was a 100% accurate test , i also checked the wires coming from the fuel pump and found nothing is pinched , cut or not protected .


Not sure what else could it be .Any thoughts or input
