Three separate campaigns filed with NHTSA

By Motorcycle.Com Staff, Aug. 06, 2010
Ducati has initiated three separate recall campaigns for the 2010 Multistrada 1200 with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The throttle cables on certain Ducati Multistrada 1200 models may come into contact with the radiator during regular operation. Repeated contact may cause damage the cable and interfere with throttle operation.

Ducati dealers will secure the throttle cable to the frame, preventing contact with the radiator. An estimated 396 units are affected by the recall campaign.

Certain Ducati Multistrada 1200 models may have the wrong screw installed into the steering head. Instead of an M8x28 10.9 screw, some models may be using an M8x25 8.8 screw. The steering head may loosen because the screw is the wrong length and diameter.

Ducati dealers will replace the incorrect steering head screws with the proper screws. Approximately 196 screws are affected by the recall campaign.

The 2010 Ducati Multistrada 1200S Touring Edition.

The Ducati Multistrada 1200S Touring Edition is being recalled because of the mounting screws for the center stand may come loose during regular operation. This may cause the center stand to loosen and possibly disengaged.

Ducati dealers will remove the center stand screws and apply a thread-locking compound before reinstalling the screws to the proper amount of torque. An estimated 495 units are affected by the recall campaign.
