Faulty Seat ?
« on: June 05, 2017, 08:37:39 PM »
Dear all. Please take note of this issue that I have found recently with my bike seat.
Take a look at the photo on the attached link.



There are 2 holes appeared. I can only guess the top pillion seat it catching or rubbing on top of the main fixed seat 😠

Ducati Manchester have been good to call me last Friday and have ordered a replacement under warranty.

Strange it has happened because I haven't had a passenger on the seat nor a loaded bag etc yet. The under side of the pillion seat is rough and full of staples that maybe the cause.

I'll keep you updated.

Had my seat swapped on Saturday. No issues from my dealer. They ordered it and called me last week when it arrived.
They just checked mileage and reg of the bike and that was it.
After checking it with them. It looks like when taking off the removable seat the rubber blocks must catch the lower seat edge and created the 2 holes.
Be very careful everyone as it's easy to catch the back edge of the seat.

It's not fit for purpose iMO.

Also had them alter my headlight beam height. They are set well too high. Free of charge 😀
