thermostat housing

I have identified that my thermostat housing (squirter module) is leaking the agent says the part is not serviceable and a new unit needs to be fitted?
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 ??

It looks like it can be pulled apart but the screws might strip putting them back in since it’s only plastic.

And yes it should be made of metal, made it cheap and nasty.

..it's an inexpensive plastic part, prone to failure...i've gone thru 2 (or 3)....eventually you'll get a better made one (from the ducati parts bin)....but no aftermarket one exists (that i'm aware of)

Yep just had to order the complete housing, I will take the old one and have it CAD modeled (I have a CNC machine)and see if I can machine it out of T6 may have to make it out of three parts, I will only know when I have worked out the tool path, pity I'm not home for a while otherwise I would not put back a plastic part.
Problem with prototyping is we sometimes have to make a part a number of times before it's perfect why Ducati did not just do it in the desighn phase of this bike is questionable, the bit of extra weight in this part versus its reliability should have been considered
Thanks from Gecko and AaronJ

The extra weight would have been negligible.....checked mine out its dribbling (small residue) out of the housing so ill keep a eye on it.

Only done 1000Kms since changing it out, used blue loctite were required too and a torque wrench.

I'd be interested in this if you end up making a few.

You could send these and the water pump drive gears to china and they could make a perfect replica.

Chinese build to a price...
