This has led to recalls in the states I believe, overheating in warmer climates....

no worry of it happening over here
Remember: If in Doubt use Full Throttle, It may not make the situation any better, But it will end the suspense...

The rider's name is "Nitrouz"....he deserves his bike to burn to the ground just for that alone, frickin' loser. Kinda apt, though.

There has been a recall for fuel venting on the V4.

This guy fitted an aftermarket fuel cap not designed for the V4. I believe Ducati replaced the bike FOC.

It’s like the self combusting 916 electrics all over again. (gah)

My parents always said everything comes back into fashion at some point.

Quite possibly....if the breather hose isn't in place correctly then the fuel will come seeping out of the cap/seal itself, run down onto the engine & ignite.

Don't ask me how I know this.
