Ducati 999 died on a ride - electrical problem I think

2003 Ducati 999 with 1900 miles on it. Been sitting for about 3 or 4 months. Fired it up and it kept dying at idle. Figured might not be that bad of an idea to take it for a ride. That was dumb. Rode it for 20 miles. Let it sit. On my way home after like 5 miles. Check engine light came on. 2 miles after that the bike died. Oil light and check engine light on at this time. Bike does have gas. Bike fuel pump does activate. Bike does have ample voltage. Nothing happens when you press start button. I have plugs on the way. Simple to install. Doing an oil change while I am at it. Any ideas what it can be? Hopefully just the plugs? Please help me out.

Ding ding - winner. Simple process of elimination says the problem is definitely electrical. My money is on battery, but it could be something else or even battery problems caused by something else. Step 1 should be to put it on a battery trickle charger (borrow one if necessary). With a charger, you should be able to tell if the battery is fully charged and if it will hold a charge. Might still have a problem with cranking power, but at least you'll be on the right track. Other option is to swap in a known good battery and give it a go. Also check battery cables and terminals very closely. My buddy's M750 had a similar problem. Terminals looked fine with no visible corrosion until removed. However a strange film had formed between the terminal post and the cable connection that was slightly visible once the cables were disconnected. A few passes with a wire brush and bike and battery were fine.

Put some charge in the battery and start the engine.

Instrument Cluster needles stuck -- Electrical Problems


Needles stuck indicative of instrument cluster complete failure. Cause unknown. This is second instrument cluster that has failed on this bike, first one failed at about 3000 miles, twenty-two months ago. This "new" one died in mid May 2008. Received word from Ducati North America that they will accept the warranty claim for the toasted instrument cluster!!! Am still concerned about cause...this is second instrument cluster for this S2R800. Seems to be an issue prevalent on some of these late model Monsters. Will update more after instrument cluster gets in and replaced by Bloodworth Ducati in Nashville.

748 brake conversion


lines and master cyl) front brake system from a 999. Should this bolt on to a 748 or are there any other mods needed.Check fit the master cylinders on your handle bars. The MC does not clear some 2 piece clip-ons. The reservoir on the 999 master cylinder sits very low and often hits the clip-on portion. If it does not clear your clip-ons---I know these will fit. We installed these on a 999 a few months ago. SPEEDYMOTO Adj. Clip-ons: 53mm Silver . You'll get a little bit of angle adjustment and a 5/8 rise for comfort as well.,
