FYI this is the response I got from my dealer's mechanic:

Hi Duanne,

The timing belt tensioner recall is not active in Australia as yet, as there are no parts available to implement this repair. The normal procedure in this instance, is your receipt of a letter from Ducati, advising you of the recall, and this will only happen when the replacement belt rollers are available.
Until then, please continue to use and enjoy your motorcycle as normal.
