Not sure if this has issue has been posted before, but the rear tab on the detachable portion of the rear cowl just snapped off on me. I have less than 50 miles on the bike and have only open the darn thing a few times. Obviously an under engineered part. The dealer is going to try and warranty it.

Wow, that must be defective. I've taken mine off often, just because, and never had an issue.

The dealer said they would warranty it, but I decided to go ahead and fix it instead. Just seems like a weak design. Anyway, you can see the fix below. I know some of you will not like the rivets. lol!

If the dealer will replace it on warranty I'd get a new one. They do seem a little flimsy, don't think mine will be coming off all that often scene as you can't really fit anything under there!

You're right about that! I usually carry a micro towel and a small bottle of cleaner to be able to de-bug my visor. I haven't quite figured out how I'm going to do that yet! lol!

The dealer said they would send it back to Ducati for warranty. So I read that as "they might warranty it". I just didn't feel like going through all that hoopla!
