for some perspective

the 1098 had the exact same break point on the radiator as the current oil cooler .
The bike would crack in the exact same way in nearly the exact same place IIRC except instead of a oil cooler it was a radiator.

it was of course covered under warranty - the difference was that Ducati refused to do a recall which meant if the bike was out of warranty they would refuse to replace the radiator . and my guess is most of those radiators eventually cracked.

so be glad you got your recall

There's also #6 for the rear wheel speed sensor wiring.

And I believe there were two ECU/Software updates. One of those enabled cylinder deactivation.

What are the details on #6 - rear wheel speed sensor wiring? Is that an official recall on 2018 V4?

Not sure if it's official recall, but there's definitely a technical bulletin about it. My bike was experiencing wheel speed sensor issues, and official solution (via tech bulletin) was to install new wiring "holders?" and re-route some wires to prevent interference. Had to wait for special parts.

Can anybody share a pic of what bolt is actually in discussion?

The chain tensioner bolts are relatively easy to access, so if all the dealer is required to do is check torque them, then it should be a fairly quick job. Contrary to what has been said on here, the rear bolt is not positioned near the rear wheel. One bolt is behind the ABS unit on the front cylinder head, the other is next to the thermostat housing on the rear cylinder head. See the image below of the rear bolt.

Much appreciated! Thanks! Can I ask, is that from the service manual?

Yes. Unfortunately it is on an encrypted pendrive so cannot be copied. You can print out pages individually but as you can imagine that will take hours to do. If you are after specific info let me know....Topo

Try AMS Ducati in Dallas or Pro Italia. Either will sell you one.
