I repainted the tank...

  8. The Infamous Tank Expansion...and Then Some

    Alright, new to Ducati, last bike was a Triumph Daytona 675. So I purchased a 2011 848 EVO. I absolutely love the bike, minus the complete SHIT tank.

    So one day I started my bike put it into first gear and drove 5 feet before it turning off. I started it again and didn't want to run. It turns over and I can hear the fuel pump engaging like any other time you start a Ducati. I smelled gas so I didn't want to keep starting it due to safety...
