Question about 2005 Ducati Monster 620

1 Answer

Gear problem Strange thing happened to me on My monster 620 today: I'm cruising on the interstate at about 80mph. My RPMs are at around 5.5 -6 K. I'm not sure what happened butI did something with the gears and my RPM went down to 3-4 K...awesome!? You'd say that I just switched to a higher gear right? umm I don't think so. I counted the gears and I was on 6th already... so I'm guessing that there is some hidden overdrive gear?? I can't get it again and my rpms are still in the 5.5-6 range at 80mph...I miss being in the 3-4K level at this high speed...just when I was beginning to think that my bike is rather tourquey...guess not! :-( All other monster 620 riders I would appreciate your comments... thanks!

Errr... that doesn't sound right. When I had my 620, im pretty sure anything over 80mph would have my tach over 5k. You should honestly be up around there all the time tho. Ducs are much happier in the 5-6k RPM range. It might sound scary at first, but trust me that the engine runs nice and torquey up there.... its the happy place! enjoy.

The rpms seem higher on this vehicle than I am use to seeing, cruising at 80mph the car is hitting 4000rmps. Is this normal for this vehicle?


there is not enough specif details available to be able to be close to exact But I will give an example that you can compare
in a manual transmission with a diff ratio of 3.909 and in 5th gear the rpms for 79 mph is 3200 rpms
the difference between gears is around 250 rpms so if you try to correlate the differences if it was in 4th gear the rpms would be around 3750 rpms so I suspect that the over drive section of the transmission is not engaging ( assuming that it is auto transmission)
so to answer your question , I am saying that it is too high in rpms for that speed and I suspect that the od is not being engaged as the rpms at 80mph I would be looking at around 3200-3500 rpms depending on the diff ratio

Ducati monster wont start


Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
4. Bank angle sensor tripped and ignition/light key switch not cycled to the "OFF" position and then back to the "ON" position.
5. Faulty starter button/switch.
6. Faulty jiffy stand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
7. Security alarm needs a reset.
8. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
9. Electric starter shaft pinion gear is not engaging or over-running starter clutch slipping.

hmmm... 80mph @6000 rpm is not normal. you are needing a lot of power to produce 80mph. it seems clutch assembly needs replacement. clutch assembly includes clutch disc, fly wheel, and release bearing. might as well check your clutch master if the vacuums are still working properly. this might be the culprit to the stuck up clutch pedal.

after replacing the clutch assembly, you can reach 80mph @ 4000-4500rpm

2002 vw jetta tdi - problem with rpm gauge?


Hi, Did you notice the motor actually reving higher when the tachometer was reading a higher rpm.. If it was it could be your transmission slipping.. Set your cruise control and listen to your motor while the tachometer starts moving erratically.. Good Luck
