Question about 2003 Ducati Monster 1000s i.e.

1 Answer

Is my tach broken?

I have just purchased an used 2006 with 1800 miles on it. Few days ago when I turned on the ignition and let it idle, I noticed that my tach needle is pointing below "0"! Motor starts up fine without any hesitation and Choke works fine too (needle goes up to 3000~4000rpm). When I open the throttle during the idle, the needle moves too. Just during the idle the needle points below "0".??? I first thought my idle is low... but idle is not rough and it seems fine in my opinion. Has anyone here encountered same problem? If so, how did you manage to fix it?

I have the same problem on my '05 monster 620. I hear it's very common. Upon calling my trustworthy mechanic (not the dealer), he informs me this is quite common. The glue holding the needles in place is apparently not the greatest, and moisture inside the instrument panel screws it all up. He recommended I take an engine speed meter, take apart the instrument panel, and glue the needle back in place at the appropriate reading for the engine speed. I haven't tried to do this yet as the rainy season just started, and I don't have a garage :/ Let me know if you have any success in this regard as I'm very interested in hearing about it.

Wait for new one to be installed before selling. The more you drive it, the bigger will be the error on the odometer miles. You will have to mark the title as incorrect milege if the new buyer notices the broken speedo. Wait, fix it, sell it.

1990 virago 535 starts and runs great for about 3 or 4 miles


Pull the float bowl caps off the carbs and then spray carb cleaner into the main jet and all other accessible ports on the carbs. Chances are there is a build up of water condensation in the carbs.

Will not fire


When you turn the key, do all of the little lights on the tach light up and stay lit before you try the starter ? I ask because my key-switch has become a little fickle this year. Sometimes when I turn the key, I can hear the electronics going through the pre-start sequence, but, only one little light on the tach comes on, and then I know that it's gonna act up a little. When that occurs, the engine will crank but will not start. Have to turn back the key and do a little jiggle and wiggle of the key on the tumblers while turning the key to get everything working
