Question about 2001 Ducati 996 S

1 Answer

Ducati 996 my 00 996 not starting. Recently i took it out for a ride after a long time parked in my garage. After about 2-3 miles ride it started to spit and backfired. I immediately turned around. On my way back i had to rev so high at the lights just to keep the bike from stalling but i still backfiring. I didn't start it again until i install a new battery and it still not starting, though one time it just started and quit. I've already check for gas,fuses it's good but before i go any further can someone out there tell me what wrong with my bike. Thanks

Two problems-dont know cause or if related or not. #1 engine backfires,stalls spits hesitate like not getting fuel

This is definitely a carburetor issue... when your rider needs more fuel and air to suffice the engine, it's not getting it. How old is the unit? When is the last time it's had the carburetor removed to he serviced...

Start there....

Was riding the bike parked it went to ride next day.

Hi, Anonymous 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.

I just took my ducati out of its winter garage, when i parked the bike there 4 months ago it was all fine, but today when I started it first time this year the engine did not run well. after 30 minutes...

hello rob. often when there is oil in the air filter it is an indication that the machine was turned on it's side. that said, replace the air filter and the spark plug[s]. Also remove any old fuel and replace it with brand new fuel, not fuel that has been sitting around.

finally if it is still rough running go to the auto parts store and get a bottle of a product called seafoam, a fuel additive that cleans the internal parts of the engine remarkably well.

Hi i have a 2005 st3,and has been parked

My suggestion is YES! I change mine every season on my 900CR whether I need them or not. It's not a hard job to do yourself, and it's dirt cheap insurance. I would also HIGHLY reccomend a valve adjustment too, but would do so after about 500 or so miles of run in to make sure any rust/etc on the valve seats has worn off. My suggestion, ride her for about 400-500 miles, and belt and valve her at the same time next season, early. the Stick
