Absolutely! They are exactly the same as your pics. Have you contacted anyone? I have not seen anything on this. I did hear that the owner of GoAz [Bob Parsons] in Scottsdale, Az. repainted the whole bike due to this.YES. I am going through this right now. Are they darker/brownish in color? Almost like a burn or a stain?
I tried to capture the issue, but the SL paint is tricky to photograph:
linkie no workieOn a side-note,
my friend PanterDude ( http://www.********************* ) was wondering how Ducati pulled-off this paint job (color) in the first place.
Apparently, that color, (day-glow orange/red) or any day-glow/neon type color is very susceptible to premature fading.
He was impressed…..
Time will tell. :nerd:
I had the same issue after riding from Az to Mn and back to Az. The bug accumulation was huge [even though I did clean them off everyday] and I had 10-12 brown spots on the upper fairing and tank. I placed the bike in the direct sunlight, rotating every hour for 6 hours and they were gone. They have not returned.Hi All,
Ducati recommends placing the SL in the sun and rotating it every 45 minutes. That should clear any spots up - I've personally seen it work and clear up those spots on the tail and tank areas of a SL.
