If you are having starter problems with duc there is a special tool you need for removing the alt cover on the motor to remove the starter. its better for a dealer to do this job so you don't end up with a leaking motor after you get the job done, but you should look at the start relay first and your battary health, also start switch.

2007 Ducati monster sr4s won't start battery good when hit start button engine light comes on and doesn't attempts to start any ideas?

Maybe your starter relay is broken. With a fully charged battery disconnect the starter relay and connect the 2 cables together and see if the starter turns. Be careful, one of the cables is wired direct to the battery so do not allow it to touch the frame. Only connect for a moment or the starter motor will burn out. If your the starter turns over the relay is the culprit.

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.

Ducati monster is blowing starter fuse

Hi, Anonymous you have a dead short which is usually the easiest to find. Using a test light connected to the hot side of the blown fuse holder, start probing the wire leaving the fuse holder about an inch away the test light should illuminate, keep probing towards the ignition switch until the test light no longer illuminates you are now very close to the short.

Wr450 starts on the kick not the button, it will turn over but not fire.

10.5 volts is enough; the problem is more likely in the contact switch, too high of a resistance. Find out which wire gets the 12V on the cdi and make a temp wire direct from the battery. If it starts then the contact switch is the problem. Solution is a relay in between to feed the cdi directly from the battery or a new contact switch. Start is while jumping the battery from a car battery, makes sure it indeed starts.

I need to know where the fuel pump relay is

There is no "Fuel Pump Relay" as such, there are a set of contacts within the Fuel Pump that do the job you ask. emove the fuel pump, access is in front of the rear wheel mudguard (removed). With it out you cav remove the top cover secured with the only phillips head screw on the unit and "Clean" the contacts with very fine emery paper or a points file. Test its operation before refitting to confirm it works, if so, refit it. Remember that this can be operated by pressing ONLY the starter button, without pulling the clutch lever in, if the starter operates then the clutch switch has been bypassed and the cruise control will not work.

Starter motor continues to run(without starting the engine) with the kill switch off and ignition turned of and the keys removed

Most bikes are built with this setup....
the positive battery post has 2 goes directly to one side of the starter solenoid relay, the other goes to the main fuse for the bike. With the key on, when you press the starter button it completes the circuit for the relay coil, which closes the heavy contacts of the solenoid and puts power to the starter motor.
This design allows the starter button to be constructed with smaller wires as they only operate the coil, not carry all the heavy current to spin the starter.
It sounds like your starter solenoid contacts are stuck closed so power is getting through at all times.
Sometimes with battery unhooked you can tap the solenoid and free the contacts....and it may work, however its probably time to replace the starter solenoid relay.

My starter spinns but won't engage

Now, you didn't tell me the year or model of your bike but if you can hear the starter spinning but the engine is not turning over, the likely problem is the "starter over-running clutch" inside the starter if it's a late model bike, (after 1985). On one occasion, I have seen the ring gear on a Sportster break loose from the outer clutch drum and spin around it without turning the engine.

Now, if you know how to remove the starter from your bike, you can probably disassemble the starter and replace the clutch yourself. But, if you're going to have to pay someone to do the job, you'll be better off to simply replace the entire starter. The labor time involved in disassembling the starter motor will eat up and savings you might try to realize by repairing the starter rather than replaceing it.

I tried to attach a picture but it is simply too small to be of any use. Go to and look up your bike and starter. I think it's part #252 on the drawing.

If you want detailed instructions on how to repair your starter, contact me off forum at It's far too much information to pass on here.

Good luck

Ducati starter motor

I have 2 monsters in my barn right now, the starter motor is, well is not the easiest. First, is it the starter gone bad or the relay? Check the fuse. Then check the relay, bottom right of the air filter housing, rubber mounted, make sure it cliks when the key is on and the starter button is hit, then check the battery, make sure it is good, then if all this checks out, check the wiring. If it is still a bad starter, remove the crank case cover on the left, rotate the starter gear to align the bolt, unscrew the 3 bolts, and replace the gasket when putting in the new starter. Don't forget to take the battery negative off, and wire on the starter motor. Good luck.
