Question about 2004 Ducati ST4s ABS

1 Answer

ST4 won't Start.... Any ideas?

So I just pulled the sheet off the old girl after a long winters slumber. Exceited to take her out on a nice spring day. I pulled it out in the drive and inserted the key. Turned the key and the lights came on. The normal wind of the fuel pump. But, the expected sound of the engine turning over never came. I have had the bike connected to the battery tender all winter long. I opened up the fuse box and checked all the fuses and they all looked good. I am at a loss. Does anyone know anything that I am missing? Your help is greatly appreciated. Thanks

With cars or bikes you have to isolate the problem to fuel, electrical or mechanical. It appears you have narrowed it down to an electrical issue. If I were in your shoes I would: 1. check the "run switch and fuses 2. triple check the "run" switch and fuses 3. pull the fairings and check the voltage at the battery(12 volts is a dead battery) 4. check starter relay. 5. check that all battery connections are snug Check the above and let us know what the results are.

2. 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.
3. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and module.
4. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting / leaking, spark plug cable connections loose.
5. Faulty ignition coil or ignition / electronic module

Which engine oil for gsx 1100 1982 model,, also any help on this i have attached a fully charged battery nice bright lights and indicators,, but the the essential bit the ignition not a peep out of it ???...


A bike of that vintage should have 10W40 in the summer, and 10W30 in the winter.
Check your fuses for the starter issue, and also check the neutral and clutch safety interlocks.
Most bikes won't start is they think they are not in neutral or the clutch isn't pulled in.

Hi, Beardak and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty.
2. Fuel supply valve/petcock turned off.
3. Fouled spark plugs.
4. Engine flooded as a result of overuse of the enricher.
5. Vacuum hose to the fuel supply valve/petcock disconnected, broken, cracked, or pinched.
6. Fuel valve/petcock or filter clogged.
7. 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.
8. Loose or corroded wire connection at the coil, battery or plug between ignition sensor and module.
9. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting, cable connections loose, or connected to the wrong cylinders.
10. Ignition timing incorrect due to a faulty ignition coil, ignition module or sensors (MAP, CMP, CKP, O2 and/or BAS).
11. Security alarm needs a reset.

Replace oil filter on a ducati st4


First, do you have the new filter? How about the oil? Pull the plug out of the side of the engine, It is a big allen head bolt, I made a wrench out of an old carpenters cat's paw, it was about 1/2 inch, ground it down a little to fit, turn it with a wrench, pull out the sieve and let the oil drain. then pull the filter, It should be hand tight, put some fresh oil on the new filter gasket, turn it in real tight by hand, real tight. Then clean out the sieve, and carefully put that back, watch out for the aluminum ring, it crushes easily. Fill it up with 3 qts of full synthetic motorcycle oil. about 5-30 weight. It should be real close to full. Hope this helps.
I have a 2002 S4.
