Question Problems with fuel leaking on a hard stop

Hello fellow riders

Yesterday i had a motorcycle training,
but i had to interrupt the emergency braking tests,
because the fuel of my strada was leaking over the fuel overflow.

The fuel tank was a little over 3/4 full and every time i stopped hard,
even with 30km/h, the fuel came out of the overflow.

Has anyone experienced this so far, or is it a problem of my bike.

Thanks
SH

That doesn't sound normal to me, and fuel leaks are dangerous, so definitely go directly to your Ducati service garage.

Was your fuel cap tightly secured? That would be the most obvious place to look. Maybe a fuel line is loose.... I'd head to the dealer and have em take a look.

Fuel cap was closed (tested it after the first time)
And it definitely came out or the fuel overflow.

Had this the last time also, when i overfilled the tank.

I can understand if it's over filled. But I hard break often just to test myself and scrub the pads and don't even get a wiff of fuel.

Do you still have the evap canister installed? I know it is known to cause issues if installed and tank is very full.
