an aluminum tank is still a better option though. They do them on the old bikes, why not the new????

I Love my MV F4.
Stuff like this can occur from time to time from any manufacture. Compare this to Lamborgini's that burst into flames................

The main thing is that Mv Agusta does what is RIGHT, and stands WITH their Customers and Stands behind their products.
Then, for me, All is forgiven, and I may be a customer for LIFE.

I keep looking to see if these guys are going to do a tank for the MY10+ models. They have the old style. Maybe if enough people inquire they would.

Tanks for that web-site. Very, Very, Nice work, I Love Aluminum.
$2400 (+-) Plus Shipping. Basically same (retail) Price MV would sell a Shitty Plastic One for.

I added that site to my "favorites" list.

Motorcycle art my ass.

Any ideas on how to escalate this?
Not liking what I'm reading here as far as MV not warrantying swelling tanks. I sure hope that's not true.
I was at my dealer a few days ago, & asked for an update for my '11 1090RR swelling tank warranty claim that was submitted & approved back in April. They are supposed to have emailed MV (& copied me) asking for an update. I don't expect to hear anything since Italy is pretty much on Holiday this month. However, I do expect to get some sort of update early next month.
An aluminum tank would be awesome, but I don't see that happening unless it's a custom job, at my own expense. At the very least they should send a new tank that's had the interior coated at the factory or pay to have the coating applied by the dealer before installing the new tank. Man I hope they take care of you.
Good luck,
Glenn

I wonder how for the swelling/deformation would go if the tank wasn't replaced. Do you think it could expand to the point it becomes a matter of safety?

Here is the letter, retyped verbatim, from Mr. Tang Wu at MV AGUSTA USA, LLC

From: MVUSA Tech <tech@mvagustausa.com>
Sent: Thursday, April 19, 2012
To: Service (Euro Cycles of Tampa Bay)
Subject: RE: TAMPA 1090RR FUEL TANK

Jeff, (Service Manager)

Concerning the fuel tank issue, at the moment unless there is a possibility of a safety issue (i.e. leaking fuel, improper fit, softening tank, etc) I would ask that you let the customer know MV Agusta will replace his fuel tank once a solution has been found by the fuel tank manufacturer. There is a limited stock of the original batch of tanks which will most likely result in the same issue and those should be reserved for safety related repairs. If you feel the customer will not accept this answer, please give me a call to discuss at 215-781-XXXX

Thanks
-Tang

My thought is that the simplest, least expensive solution for the tank manufacturer would be to apply a suitable protective internal coating (like some that have been suggested) on any existing tanks they have & all tanks made in the future.

An email was sent a couple of weeks ago requesting an update, which has not been responded to yet. I'm sure that has more to do with Italy being on Holiday this month than anything else. Anyway my service manager, Jeff is going to call Mr. Wu directly on Tuesday to ask for an update.
Hopefully I'll have an update later in the week. I'll keep you all posted.
Cheers,
Glenn

Thanks for that information Glenn. I'm willing to be patient while MV work with the tank manufacturer to find a permanent fix. I wish MV would release a service bulletin though so the coating could be applied as a precautionary measure for those currently unaffected.
