The dealer will only replace the hose fittings, not the tank fittings.
You might want to consider foregoing the dealer, and buying a full set of male and female fittings. This way you will never have to worry about the plastic cracking, fuel leaking and you bike bursting into flames.
and do a site search here, there are probably a thousand threads on the subject.
Then he went beyond the recall. The Triumph replacement parts are only the male/hose side.Oh don't be so dramatic. Though we've had a very few leakers we haven't had anyone burst into flames.
To the OP it depends on your dealer. Mine put the full monty on mine, both ends metal.

It is a nice piece of mind to have both sides done, though. I did it after 60k+ miles on my '02 without a weap.
Steve mine was actually the plastic box thingo everything plugs into on the side of the tank, it cracked, probably bumped it when i was lifting the tank or maybe while in the shop.Good and interesting post pushr0d.
I'll have my tank off after I get back from holidays in a few weeks and will have a look see. I know DaveM had an issue with leaking fuel connectors last year too.
I am thinking of going strainght to the metal (male and female) quick connectors and being done with it. Plastic and fuel are not friends in my opinion.
Maybe something that we need to revisit. Thanks for posting.
I just talked to Eric at quickcouplings.net. Their online ordering site is down, so you have to call.
The pressure fitting is $10.50, and the hose barb (return) fitting is $17.68. As soon as I verify the size of the hose barb (that it is indeed 5/16"), I'm ordering a set.
Dave, I'm not sure what 'plastic box' you speak of; all the 'stuff' in my fuel section is metal. The only plastic bits are the connectors and the 90 hose barb for the return hose, and of course, the rubber hose.
If you can do without the bike for a bit, order the parts from QC. Otherwise, get the nylon ones (for more money) from either a Triumph or (apparently) a Ducati dealer. Seems like the Ducks use at least some of the same pieces.
Being in SoCal, you might be able to find the parts locally. And, they are available through Omega and McMaster-Carr.
