Last week, Transport Canada published four safety recalls on the 2012 Ducati 1199 Panigale
The front master cylinder hose might interfere with the threaded end of the reservoir retaining screw, resulting in damage to the hose. If left unchecked, the damage could cause a brake fluid leak, leading to a front brake system failure.
The swingarm shaft pivots could loosen from the swingarm, which could cause a loss of control.
The steering damper mounting bolts at the steering head were assembled with an insufficient amount of thread locking compound and could loosen during vehicle operation. Also, due to incorrect assembly tolerance, the steering damper's uniball bearing could separate.
In extreme cases, engine heat could cause the exhaust butterfly Bowden cable to melt or burn.
These recalls target 169 motorcycles. Owners are advised to take their Ducati to a local dealer to have the faulty components fixed or replaced.
