But it addresses the heat from the exhaust and something concerning the heat coming from the front. Ill swing by dealer this afternoon so ill try to get more info. I'm glad Ducati is addressing the issue, regardless how it actually affects each person, I'm happy they are addressing it. It certainly won't hurt! And from what ive heard, our 2013 bikes are the exact same as the 12's as far as the heat shield so of your dealer told you the 13 had the "fixes"/new shield already applied, they may have been misinformed because this update will be for the 12 and 13's.

They did say the update kits will be reaching the dealers in February...
I can just see the confusion that will eventually start when you use the word "recall" twice in your post on a "hot" issue like this.

ETA: Based on reading that letter posted earlier from Ducati, this might indeed be safety-related so there's no telling if this turns into an actual recall. I think the heat is quite excessive (during high temperatures and when you are not dressed properly) otherwise I am fine. I can remember only once where the heat was so bad that it almost forced me off the bike at a stoplight but that won't happen to me again, I've learned my lesson.

Haha good point! Oh we'll, adds some fun for those who don't actually pay attention to what they are reading :-) I think they call that subliminal messaging

I'd prefer it was not a recall as I want to see the experience of others with engine temps before taking Ducati up on this mod. When I came off track last summer in 35 C ambient the bike was at 103 C and the fan was running. Personally I don't have a problem with the heat, but I would have a problem with a cooked motor, ecu, wiring, etc.

For me at least, it's pretty clear that the head is the source of the heat that makes the bike uncomfortable. Heat from the head is the heat I was talking about.

But where will they reroute said heat? Just allow the bike to run alot hotter doesn't seem like a good idea either. Optimistically skeptical.

That is really good news. I was starting to notice the heat problem as well and now it is nice in chilly in Texas, but when summer comes boy.... i dont want to think about it. so it is perfect timing! Glad Ducati is fixing these issues. I will call my dealer as well.

I'm not sure why you are skeptical. Most big bikes put out a lot of heat, but they design the bikes to route the air past the rider. I've owned two bikes that were first known for their heat, but then fixed by the mfr (mine were both versions after the fix). The early FJR 1300 Yamaha and first two years of Kawasaki Concours 14. In both cases the revised versions put out zero heat on the rider and no issues with cooling.
