Picked up my new rear sprocket today, the difference is the extra metal between the circular cush drive mounts.

The dealer said that they have had 2 that have sheared and that Ducati want things kept quiet !!!!

The sprocket manufacturer is not responsible for any of the cost apparently as it was built to Ducati's specification.

I could not believe the price label on it , £106 ($210) + labour and they have 14,000 to replace so I was told !!!!

OLD / NEW

I guess they are not taking ANY chances that the NEW one will self distruct!! They beefed the shit out of that thing. It even looks (may be camera angle) THICKER.

I have attached two images of the sprockets. You can see how deep the gap is between the recalled version vs the good version. If yours has the deep gap you need a new one.

"As of 5th December 2007 the modified sprocket flowed into production
from frame no. ZDM1XBEW38B014360 for US models and from frame no.
ZDMH700AA7B013062 EU versions.".
It might pay to check your sprocket regardless.

I have an EU 13711 (AFTER the so called correction) and have the "old" style sprocket. There is no web all the way to the hub.

I called my dealer and e-mailed Ducati. They both say there is no recall listed for my bike even though the chassis number is below the published "fixed" range.

I just checked my sprocket and it's one of the "old" style units. I'm not quite sure how to handle this, but I think it's time to talk to the dealer again.

Holy cow that thing's beefy! Looks like it belongs on a Harley(or john Deere tractor), i wonder what the weight difference is.

Looks like it's time to get a Stealth rear.

I think the bike will be 10mph slower. The new one weighs loads !!!

The amount of failures is being kept quiet but it is a lot more than Ducati is letting on. If any of your dealers informs you that there is no recall I suggest that you insist that there is and that you want them to contact Ducati immediately. The amount of metal on the 'old' sprocket around the centre hub is VERY thin. This is where it has been shearing.

My dealer had a sheet from Ducati with pictures of the differences in the two versions.

Thank you!! I've been wanting to see a picture of the old/new so I can see if my sprocket is the old one.

Well that was fast. They ordered it late last week and had it today. Already got it put on. There must not be a back order problem. Excellent service.
