Rear Shock heat issue

Hello all,
Just upgraded from my 2015 Ducati Monster 821 to the New 2017 SuperSport base. If have now become aware of a heat issue regarding the rear shock. The shock is so close to the rear exhaust that its melting the Sachs Shock. I have seen photos on other sites and am concerned. Is anyone aware or experiencing this issue. My understanding is Ducati has made a shield that fits between the exhaust and shock.
Really love the bike as it meets what I was looking for... a mix between the Panigale and the Monster... it rides and handles like a dream... Wish I was aware of this prior to purchasing but not sure if would have deturded me.... Just concerned...
Thank all,,,

Rear Shock heat issue

I have just over 1,600 miles on mine and Im not seeing any issue of concern. Is there something at all different, in that particular area, between the standard and the S?
I see two split covers/shields of sort.
One under the outer black.

Yes, I have the Supersport as well with 3k miles and mine is suffering from the same problem. It is burnt and blistered. I can smell it when I am stopped at a red light.

Ducati has released a service bulletin. If you contact your local dealer, you can schedule to bring you bike in and have an additional heat shield installed to protect the bump stop from being damaged by the heat. This is all free of charge. If there is any visual damage to the bump stop, the entire shock isn?t replaced free of charge.

Non S models are more prone to having heat damaged bump stops on the rear shock. S models with the ohlins shock are less likely to have damage, but I have seen a picture of one S model with damage on the other forum.

Thanks tea2jay... concerned about the long term! Checked my bike and seams the shield is already installed, but it doesn't cover the top area so I can't see that it will protect the bump stop. Terrible design.... let's all keep this going regarding the long term effect!

Just got an email:


We would like to inform you that your SuperSport S needs updating.
The update involves the installation of a central heat guard on the vertical exhaust pipe that prevents possible aesthetic flaws of the rear shock absorber stopper.
This update is completely free of charge and extremely quick. On the occasion of this service, your Ducati Service shall also check whether it is necessary to make further updates to the vehicle and control units in order to keep your motorcycle always in line with Ducati latest specs.


I just got off the phone with Ducati and theyre inquiring as to whether or not the parts are being auto shipped, need to be ordered, etc.

Ill be setting up an appointment, when I hear back.

They put on the heat shield when they did the 600 mile service almost a month ago and just yesterday I got an email from Ducati NA saying it should be done - a day late but at least not a $ short.

Anyway, the bike was picked up last week to install the heated grips which had just come in. Coming back this afternoon. A potential downside to these is that there's no switch. You have to scroll through the menu to the appropriate page then you can turn on / up the heat. It sounds like a definite distraction if done while riding. We'll see.

Don't know if you have learned more about the issue since your post, or maybe have had the service bulletin completed.

The shields (2 each) you described, which do not cover the top area, are the as delivered original design. The service bulletin installs a third shield which installs under the two at the top and closes off the gap.

Evotech Performance, but you likely figured that out by now.
