Question about 2008 Ducati Monster 696

2 Answers

Breaking Down I have a monster which will break down often. By break down, I mean that the bikes dies when I am riding it and feels like it is running out of gas. I hit the throttle and it starts to sputter and finally comes to a stop. The battery works and it tries to turn over but the engine won't start. I replaced the fuel line and am guessing that it might be the fuel pump. But if the fuel pump was broken would the bike start to begin with? I can ride for an hour, and then I get this issue, and the bike is full of gas. Once the bike sits for a while after it dies and if I raise the gas tank, it will then start up again. Any thoughts you might have would be great.

I had the exact same problem. Took to a shop and changed hoses, cleaned tank and performed a number of test with no fix. Ultimately, they said I needed a new tank because of the rust inside the tank. The rust was getting into the engine which caused the sputtering. I gave up and ditched the bike. It was was a 1999, so I gave up on it.

The problem may be a pinched fuel or vacuum hose, or a weak/collapsed vacuum hose. The problem may be varnished fuel/carburetors. It may be an electrical problem: loose connector or defective conductor. I cannot help you other than this without having the Duc and performing a few tests. The Monsters are fun to ride.

In four gear excleration is fine but, when I maintain a steady speed It feels like I am getting uneven fuel flow. What is the best action to take for this problem. thank you


If you are getting even acceleration through the gears I would say your problem is the spark plugs are breaking down. It will give a jerky feeling in the bike or sometimes may be explained as a surge then a lag and it might even sputter or sound odd and uneven exhaust noise.

If the bike is starting well and doing all the other "normal" stuff then I'd be point a finger at the spark plugs. Replace them with the correct brand and spark plug number also while you are at it replace the fuel filter although I doubt this is the problem.

When the engine is hot and you shot the the engine off and then you start it up again I am having hard time start it up.


If I recall correctly this bike has C.D.I. but down on the crank are two pick up coils.If this is the bike I'm thinking of these coils are bad for breaking inside.When you cold start the break is together but when they get warm the break expands apart and you have trouble restarting.Does one of the pistons cut out when you are riding along? If yes this is most likely the problem

New crf250r breaks down at high revs since new


Thats not normal. You could get a bike off the show room floor and completely skip the break in period and it would run wide open. If your bike wouldn't rev past quarter throttle there is something wrong. With a blackened silencer and a motor that dies at quarter throttle I'd say you've got a problem with your injection system flooding your motor with fuel. I run 3 warm up and cool down rotations and go ride like normal. After 4 tanks of fuel your bike is more than broken in. If you aren't familiar with the injection system take it to the dealer and get someone to look at it. If you bought it new it should be covered as a manufacture defect.

Start


the bike even kicks. The only way I can get it to start is by push starting it. Once I ride it for about 45 minutes it will start if I turn it off. Sometimes during the week if I ride it everyday the problem will go away. The problem comes back if I don't ride it for a couple of days. Sometimes it'll start in the morning going to work but not in the afternoon coming back. I have taken it to the shop twice but both times the problem went away and the shop couldn't find anything wrong. If anyone has any insight I would appreciate the advice.When you say you hear the starter going -- does that mean you can feel the starter engage and move the pistons up and down? Also, when you say that the bike even kicks when you let our the clutch...what does that mean? It almost sounds like a starter solenoid issue, but it's hard to say until I understand what is actually happening or not happening...,,,
