Question about 2001 Ducati 748
Hey guys. I just moved in the last month and had my bike transported in the moving truck. I helped them load it and all seemed well. However
As soon as I got down here the bike started dying about 15 to 20 minutes into a ride. This bike has never given me a single problem prior to moving. It seems like something electrical to me but I really have no idea where to begin. I'm guessing (wild shot in the air here) that some component is getting hot and failing. I could walk downstairs and start it up now and it would start fine and then fifteen minutes later it will die and not start until it has cooled down and sat for a bit. This has happened four times now. I keep it in the neighborhood since I am expecting it to shut down and I end up pushing it home. I've drained the gas and replaced it checked all of the connectors I could get my hands onto. I had some crud on the positive terminal that I could see glowing, so I cleaned all of that up. I'm planning to tear the engine down soon anyways, but I'd like to know what is causing this before I get started. If anyone has experienced this, I would appreciate any info. Thanks guys. Relevant Info: 1998 748 ~20k miles Sil 1/2 system, ITG filter, DP chip,You're throwing darts instead of troubleshooting. When the bike is dead, begin the diagnosis by determining which of the three required elements are missing; i.e., air, gas, or spark. Once you determine this, then systematically trace upstream from the engine, using a good shop manual which describes the systems. Most manuals, like Haynes or Clymers, have a troubleshooting section which may help you once the missing element is identified.,,,
