Question about 1998 Ducati 900 SS
My 1997 900ss/sp will not start. I'm new to this bike so I'm wondering if there are some known issues to look for... Here are the symptoms: 1) Engine turns over fine and strong but does not fire up 2) I smell gas 3) I am getting a spark 4) After letting it sit and dry out a bit tried again. It backfired and flames came out of the exhaust pipe - Thanks in advance for any suggestions!Can't tell from the post whether or not it's been sitting a while. If it has even for as little as a couple months, the first thing to do is drain the fuel and get some fresh stuff in there, float bowls too if you can. From my experience, they are sensitive to stale fuel. Wouldn't hurt to throw in new plugs too and of course charge the battery.,,,
