Ducati North America is recalling 651 model year 2014-2018 1199 SL, Panigale R (V2), 1299 SL, and 1299 FE motorcycles.
Engine crankcase pressure can push engine oil into the airbox, possibly resulting in oil leaking from the airbox drain hose.
The leaking oil may drip in the path of the rear tire, increasing the risk of a crash.
What to do
Ducati will notify owners, and dealers will install a blow-by valve kit free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin October 28, 2019.
Owners may contact Ducati customer service at (888) 391-5446. Ducati's number for this recall is SRV-RCL-19-002.
