Heat issues, addressed today by Ducati!

My dealer just called me today to let me know that Ducati has sent an email out addressing the heat and are preparing to send out update kits to address the issues on the 1199! Sounds like some new parts are on the way!
Thanks from unrazzo, Marchant, RonDog54 and 1 others

Wow - what parts you think - just a new exhaust cover, or something under the seat too? I am surprised they are doing this.

Ditto. I was pretty sure they would redesign the heat shield for 2013, but I can't tell the difference between mine and a 2012 heat shield. That being said, I don't think the bike is unbearably hot like a lot of people do so maybe I have had the "new" heat shield all along and just never knew it.

We could ride out to Udvar Hazy and pull a tile off the Discovery. That might be burly enough to stop the heat.

I am extremely curious to see what this is. If your dealer lets you know anything further, please post. I haven't heard anything from mine yet.

#1. I wouldn't trade this engine for less heat. No way.

#2. Sorry, but I STILL refuse to believe the heat is the SOLE responsibility of the rear exhaust routing and more-so the relation to the the inner leg and the rear head.

Update kits for the Termi full exhaust or just stock set-up?

I have a 2013 base abs and the bulletin addresses all 2012 and 2013 1199's. from what I remember it was several parts, just can't recall since it was a quick phone call. 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...
Thanks from nyandy

Mystery solved! It is a heatshield update, for both exhausts types- wider heat shield extension for the bottom right, and a new sheild for the rear of the cylinder head. All customers will get a mailing explaining this. All free.
Thanks from ScottJon, Phl, nyandy and 5 others

Trauma, thanks. I'm no mechanic but do these updates sound like they are going to actually help the issue?

I agree, hopefully it will be a noticeable change and not just a cosmetic one.

Yes - the correct approach that no one tried - deflect the heat at the source.

This is interesting, as I too feel that more of the problem is the head from the rear head. But I'm curious if the installation of more sheilding will overheat the head at all?

Just hope it won't disguise the bike too much.
To me it isn't much of an issue to start with and bigger shields mean cosmetic changes.

The description sounds like behind the scenes stuff. And there is no way Ducati would change the asthetics to squelch the heat issue. I do think it's pretty incredible they listened and made a change - this, the low-mid throttle problem, and the oil level viewng were the only, or at least main complaints throughout last year, and they have fixed all 3.
Thanks from youngR
