Question about 2003 Ducati Monster 620 i.e.
I got on the highway and for about 25 miles my engine kept (stalling/cutting out?) and then coming back on again after a few seconds. The engine light would come on the rpms would drop off for about 1 second and then the engine would come back on again. Almost like it was running out of gas but there was plenty of gas left. It happened about 10 times and when I finally got to a gas station I filled it up again on premium. On the way back home the stalling problem happened one time and then I had no problems after that. Has anyone else had this problem with regular 87 octane gasoline? By the way I ride a 695 with a Termignoni exhaust system. The engine was cold when the stalling started happening but kept occurring even when the temp was running 212. I would appreciate any comments and advice.I've never heard of anyone having issues like that from lower octane and I never have with my carbed bike. I'd rather think you got a bit of water somewhere...possibly in the regular fuel...or it was already in the tank and the fuel is just a confusing factor. Use a little dry-gas and try it again.,,,
