Question about 1998 Ducati Monster 900
Check the starter. I just had the same problem and it turned out to be a bad commutator brush on the starter motor, it was completely worn out. I had a local shop make up some new ones for $40.

Replaced with a new one. i hit the start button motor will barely turn over. i am lost. its doing the same thing as the old battery which was new last year. sure culd use some input. almost forgot also tried to jump alsojust dose not have enough balls to roll the moter overit tries but no go.what does it sound like when it is turning over? like the starter motor is really straining, or like the starter motor is really slow and lifeless? is the head light bright or dim? could be the engine is siezing up, but I doubt it. if you try to pop-start it (get it rolling on the street in high gear w/ the clutch in, then hop on and release the clutch), does the engine turn over? I'm willing to bet it's somthing simple, like one of the battery leads or leads to the starter is loose or damaged and not enough current is getting through.,,,
