gear position sensor issues

I described to the service manager how my 2013 1199r with 1565 miles on it would not stay in neutral. He explained it to the service tech who instantly said it was the sensor. It cost $149.00US for the part and $210.00US for labor. If a $32000US bike will not go into neutral there is something seriously flawed. I think that Ducati should do a recall on all of those bikes as it is a safety related issue. The dealer was not sure why so many of them fail, however I am glad that they fixed it under 2 hours.

If previous replies are correct only takes 15mins dealership robbing you..... same goes I asked dealerships how much to replace fluid in forks they say 2hour job when you can watch someone on YouTube do it in 15-20mins per leg.

When they take the bike out to the back room how do I know what is happening? My issue is with the faulty part. Why should I have to pay $367.00 dollars for a crummy failed part? Like I said, it is a safety related issue and Ducati knows about it. But at the end of the day they do not want to fix it as a recall. I guess it's time to get in touch with NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration), US Deptartment of Transportation. They have more pull than little 'ole me. If I abused the 1199r, it would be one thing. I'm freaking 70 years old! I have a clear driving record. When I first contacted the dealer he said it could possibly be a transmission issue requiring a very expensive fix. To me, $367.00 is an expensive fix involving a junky part that looks like a spark plug with a wire and plug and play connector.

When mine failed I went to the good ol' ebay and bought an used one from a donor bike with like 1k miles on it and replaced it myself (about 2 years ago and still working like a charm)

Total cost including my labor: $30
