Forgot to mention this. Just because they are sending out a DNA tech doesn't mean a thing.

He totally misdiagnosed the problem while telling me not to use the bike as intended.
Thanks from Macattack

Who are the dealerships? Are you one of those guys that just make these types of statements that could lead to catastrophic results, and not mention who the dealership is? So three different dealerships over filled three different v4Rís. ?
Yeah ok. Seams plausible. Lofl.

mine was leaking, it was appearing from the bottom of the clutch housing. Only knew because I had removed my clutch cover.
Replaced and all good now

I guess the techs can't read the manual. There is a oil filling process you fill to a set capacity then let the bike settle for a set time then check the level again.

I wouldn't just assume the bike was improperly filled or go directly for the clutch area.. mine started leaking oil at about 300 miles. Pulled the lower fairing and found leaking Oring where oil line goes into the cooler. I'm thinking it was likely damaged when the Akra exhaust was installed. In any case 30 minutes and a new Oring has solved the problem.. just my 2 cents.

the funny thing is I remember techs having problems overfilling the Testastretta Evolution (1098) engine with too much oil . these forums were a lifesaver for some people who couldn't figure out what was causing all the oil in their airbox on a brand new bike. LOL


and that bike was simply a drain and fill - the V4 is not so simple

Update: the oil seal was replaced under warranty by Ducati and they gave me a brand new rear tire because the other tire was soaked in oil 👍🏾 the motorcycle is running awesome now..

Hopefully doesnít happen to V4Rs but where would one look to keep an eye on if you were leaving the clutch cover and fairings on.
