The other day I decided to take a look at the inside of my fuel tank with a flash light. I noticed a lot of rust every where on just about every part of the tank. I bought the bike brand new 8 months ago and it is always kept in the garage. The dealer took pictures and sent them off for a warranty claim. Ducati replied back and said that it is not their fault and it is due to the ethanol in gasoline. Weird, because I have a 2007 GSXR 750 with 34,000 miles on it and its rust free. I am not very please with this, just another life lesson of getting D'd in the A.

Hopefully other 959 owners can check their tanks and not have rust. If they do I wish them better luck than I had.

that sounds like bad gas - from a station that is not Tier A - and from the looks of it the tank probably had rust in it from the day you rode it off the lot!
I would fight that tooth and nail!!!
