Going through the process of fixing mine at this time. Seems to be a leak at the seam between the two halves. Getting to the thermostat itself is a cast iron bitch.

I wonder why the dealer did not simply open mine and place a good quality gasket cement between the two halves?
Please post pics of your strip down and repair, I'm sure many of us will benefit

Anyone knows or has experience removing the OEM hose clamps? I will replace the thermostat housing soon (squirter unit, how Ducati calls it) and there is not much room to move hands around.... I see those OEM clamps pretty tight and I dont know if there is a "trick" to easily open/dispose them?

The ones connecting to the squirter unit use a 1/4 socket set, for the ones to the head use a very long biggish flat blade and pry the click together clamps apart (not alot of force is holding the clamps together.

Replace all clamps with worm gear ones.

Because a stealership would rather sell a part and labour and not a fix that might not work.

I haven't actually heard of the thermostat housing being upgraded but Ducati does show an updated part number. The replacement part number for a 2012 1199 up to and including the 2017 1299 was 553.2.012.1A. The new part number listed is 553.2.012.2A.

Squeeze an OEM clamp together with a pair of pliers, the tab releases and it pops open.
I agree, with the amount of work that's involved, don't reinstall the unit using the OEM clamps.

Replacement of the unit was discussed in the following:

I'm in Siem Reap... only a couple of Panigales floating around here. Ducati opened a dealership in Phnom Penh two years ago and that's where you'll find the bulk of them.

Anyone know the diameter of the smaller coolant hoses? Looking to replace the clip on clamps with worm drives.

Is this true because the unit from what I can see looks as if it can be opened ?

The thing is made of plastic and sits between the two cylinders where it gets very hot and I was wondering if there is an after market part made of aluminium?
Any advise ??
I have a metal one that deletes the thermostat that I got from Desmo Veloce in Arizona when they botched my engine build. The bike takes a little longer to warm up on the street, but that's not really a big deal.
