1700km and quite a big issue

a mounting point of my head lamp grill is eating (but really, it's not just a small rubbing) the front brake hose every time you move the handle bar.

I'm certain my dealer is going to handle this perfectly but you should definitly check your bike.

When I installed my grill recently I noticed there was interference there as well, so I'm wrapping the hose with a small bit of protective sleeve to keep it from rubbing through. I think the lower bolts aren't placed very well especially for how expensive it is as an accessory.

Do you think that it is an issue with how it is installed on your bike or is this something that will likely happen to all Scrambler's with the headlight grille? It's a bit disappointing since that was an accessory I was planning on buying.

If this is reported back to Ducati by the dealer, and it certainly should be, then they will likely issue a Technical Service Bulletin with instructions for installation to avoid this. If not, as a safety issue it could warrant a recall.

Found the same on my bike. Without headlight grill.
Still need to bring it to the dealer.


So what you are saying is that we should all check the brake line. Thanks!

Here is mine.




I have 1800 miles on the bike and there is definitely a small wear area, nothing to worry about yet, but with more miles.......who knows. I think I will wrap it with a piece of rubber where it rubs for now.

Had the same issue on my Diavel. Just throw a little black duct tape around it at the spot where it's chafing. I noticed mine is rubbing a bit as well and will likely do the same.

I cut a small piece of automotive heater hose and zip tied it around the line and that has worked well to keep it from the brake line and is hardly noticeable. I plan to mention it to the dealership next time I am by there but its really a simple fix if it causes concern.

FYI, upon further inspection, it is not the brake line itself but the rubber shielding that is on the brake line that is getting rubbed. I am sure the reason for the rubber protection on the brake line is this exact issue. But, unless it wears all the way through the outer rubber and the inner brake line, there is no immediate danger.

The metal clip behind the headlight, that holds the brake hose and throttle cable rubbed through the outer housing of my brake hose. It may have been due to the lower handlebars I installed (and have since removed). Idk if anyone else is getting wear here, but that wire retailer sure seems tight.
