      There's not even dent on the front from bugs.. it looks like it's been damaged when it was installed. (it was replaced 2 months ago because the last one popped)

        ?

        Radiators don't just "pop"...

        Well, Jap ones don't...
        “Crashing is shit for you, shit for the bike, shit for the mechanics and shit for the set-up,” Checa told me a while back. “It’s a signal that you are heading in the wrong direction. You want to win but crashing is the opposite. It’s like being in France when you want to go to England and when you crash you go to Spain. That way you’ll never get to England!” -- Carlos Checa

            I didn't literally hear it pop... The original one suffered from the well known issue that appears near the mounting bracket at rear left. Replaced under statutory warranty.
            The new one has damage at the rear, to one of the cores. Looks to me like a disgruntled apprentice was tasked with the installation.
            Once I get it pressure tested I'll find out where the leak is and either repair, or take it up with the dealer.
            I just want to see what's available in the way of after market options. Not opposed to Japanese copies either.

              Has there been some sort of technical revision to the radiators over the years? Such as change in supplier or extra material around the failure point? I can't say I've ever heard that radiators are a problem with 848/1098 etc, but then again I don't haunt ducati.net or whatever nowdays.

                From what I've read, they have been revised with strengthening around that problem area. I didn't see the old one when they had it out to compare it to the new though

                        They sure did mate. It don't look the prettiest at the rear (can't see it when installed) but it was all ok last night. All red stuff accounted for. Highly recommend their services.
