Ill take pics n post em when ive done plus the part number then its over to the new owners to decide. When I get a bike in for work with one of these, I replace them after explaining to the owner the consequences of failure!

Has the cause of the fire been determined yet? I wonder if it is an issue related to the oil pressure switch, if it'll take more accidents before Ducati issues a recall.

It's speculated to be a short-circuit, or a loosen part too close to the exhaust system but we'll have to wait for the official prognosis from Ducati. They should send the guy a Speciale for having literally giving the guy a hot seat.

got the 1098 new back in 2007.

2 voltage regulators and battery toasted
tank is swollen- did not get a chance to change via warranty..
only have 11k miles since its a track only bike now..

I will check that pressure switches next.

Its safe to assume that this was a one off anomaly, and not an indication of a faulty component for across all their models. If it is due to the pressure switches that were in the 1098, will they not just issue a recall and have it swapped under warranty?

Does anyone have a part number for the "Better" oil pressure switch? I take delivery of my "S" next week and it seems like it may be prudent to swap it out during dealer setup.
