Battery Trouble! Ducati 749 dark

So I went to start my bike, it has not been running all winter, i fired it up once or twice to show off to some ladies. But seriously, the volt meter reads 10.0 and 9.0, the bike will not start! The only way I got it to turn over was to run it down a gently hill and pop the clutch. Once started the battery does run UP to 11, then 12, then 13.7. Once started, It will then bounce from 13.7 - 13.8v - 13.7 again. I had left this bike to run for about 10mins and it seems to be able to start up again... but what should/ can be done here? How can I charge this battery? I have a Honda 1000 generator can I use that? Do i have to boost it with another bike? I know that I cannot hook it up to my car battery because they are different voltages! What do I do fellas

You need to get a battery tender, and when you put your new battery in it has connections that will stay on your battery and you just plug it in after you are done riding and cleaning her. oh one more thing when you get a new battery you need to charge it for 8 to 12 hours before using it, they are not like a car battery buy it, put it in, and go, you have to charge them up first. The tender should keep you battery charge all winter long. I hope this helps you. One more thing, 749's do not like weak batteries as you have found out. Buy a new one, install a tender and and use it, the battery will last much longer.

Hi my 749 is showing error code 38 CAN line what is the best way to resolve. thanks Angie


Ducati uses a cam bus. Something was added to the main harness or one of the sensors went bad. This can happen if an after market alarm system was added or fog/running lights. Can also be an oil pressure switch, or a TPS or any of the 20+ sensors on the 749. Difficult to say. Needs to be taken to a shop.

Bike battery seems charged but i hit the start button and nothing at all happens


Hi, Jim 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.

I LOST THE MANUALS AND THE 2nd KEYS OF MY DUCATI 749 DARK 2006. CAN I JUST MAKE A SIMPLY COPY OF THE KEY I USE ? TKS JR


Manuals I can help you out with. The key, you'll have to order a new one from Ducati, giving them the key code off of the gold laminated key card you should have received with the bike, as it's an encoded key. Using a standard copied key, it will shut off after a bit and lock itself out until you use the red key.

First of all is this fuel injected or carberated? second my bike will start and idle with the choke open half way. as soon as i ride and go to stop the bike stalls. what is causing this?


your bike is carburated & sounds like it is in need of a carb service, the pilot circuits are plugged & need to be cleaned to rectify your problem.
