If DP parts shipped within a week or two, wouldn't that mean that every single person who ever dinged their tank (and had insurance cover it) woudl be rocking a CF tank right now due to the price similarity?

It's not like Ducati sits on the stuff and just doesn't send it out. Many times they have to get it from their suppliers and are held hostage by their production schedules.

Re: Orders from Italy - how long did you wait?

I still have parts on order from 6 months ago. Believe me it is hard for us dealers also. Just last thursday I had to tell someone their part was still on back order and they would not have it for the weekend. I checked online to make sure. Then it shows up the next day!!!! So i call and tell him it is in, while thinking to myself this guy must think I am the biggest lyer and never bothered to check. I did have to wait 6 months for a crank for my Suzuki tl1000 one year but I knew it would be a while as I had a date to look at.

I waited just over 3 months for my DP CF tank. It probably doesn't help that they're shipped by sea instead of air either.

I waited about 8 months to get my D.O.C. card and patch, and that was just a little envelope.

I'm STILL waiting for a couple decals I ordered in January. Since then, I have traveled to Italy and the Duc factory and got some vintage decals that I'm going to use instead.

I ordered a DP tach kit a couple weeks ago....tick tick tick tick

The longest I ever waited for an order from Red Racing was a week and a half. I'm guessing that you'd only get an order that much faster from a few other companies that feel like you need them more than they need you, even if you were actually IN ITALY.

That's exactly why they had you pay in advance. Too much risk you'll change your mind in the interim and then they are stuck with an item that might sit on their shelves for a year.

Yeah, it's the Bagster cover made for Ducati. Separately, I was going to buy one of the newer Bagster tank bags like the Athena or Tektra. But I can't buy anything yet, until I get the cover.
