SO........ a little update on my wheel damage, i decided to put it through my insurance as accidental damage as im fully comp, after a calendar month from claim reported I have been informed by repairers that my bike will require front & rear wheels but as they cant guarantee the inner structure of the tyres they will need to replace them AS WELL......

So these prices I got from Ducati Manchester
Front wheel / 50121603aa/ 870.29 + vat this doesnt  include brake discs
Rear wheel  / 50221752aa/  947.23  +vat  again no brake discs included
 
Front tyre  152.14 +vat
Rear tyre  195.62 +vat

So without labour costs total 2598.33

All for a pot hole but my excess is only 200 so happy days there

But parts cant be posted as too big & heavy so have to come via road  ETA FIRST WEEK IN OCTOBER

If I had a second brain cell it would be so lonely......

Good idea to let insurance take care of it and they can haggle with the council  :028:

Does the wheel include valves? Usually when you buy parts you have to specify everything  :003:
Anything more than two wheels is unnecessary.

Does it loose air? If it does repair it... but the alluminium has memory... so It will be easier to suffer the aame issue again. On my Hypermotard I have the same on the front wheel... It doesn't loose any air... so from the 3500km that I hitted the front wheel until now with 85000km... no problem at all.

**UPDATE**

After 2 months I finally received my bike back yesterday, will a few unnecessary (my opinion) parts.

I only wanted a new front wheel, what they actually replaced was....Front Wheel, Front Tyre, Front Mudguard, Rear Wheel, Rear Tyre & for the life of me I can't think why :187: but looks like they changed the oil as well as its bright green

All for the pricey sum of my 200 excess (plus what I get stung for next year in increased premium (definatly with a different insurer)
If I had a second brain cell it would be so lonely......

Those are shocking pictures.  Sorry for those who have experienced that. 
I also read in a review that before they got very far they also damaged a rim and punctured a tire. 
I opted for the spoke wheels because I intend to trail ride a little and they look sweet.
Hopefully they will also be MORE FLEXIBLE when under stress. 
OUCH  :012: 
Life behind bars enjoy the ride
