Question about Ducati Monster 900 Motorcycles
Hi, Bruce 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.

SOURCE: engine cuts out
It sounds like something is preventing the bike from getting fuel. Check fuel filter, fuel tank vent, air filter too. If you have vacuum building up in the tank, letting the bike sit for a few minutes slowly releases that vacuum allowing the pump to pull fuel easily again for a bit. Next time the bike quits open your fuel tank. If you hear a whoosh of air being sucked in look for a plugged vent line. A plugged air filter can have a similar effect but the only way to check that is change the air filter or look at the one you have. It would have to be really, really dirty or plugged with some debris to cause this problem.

I had this problem before. Here a quick glimpse of what could have been the problem:
Fuel is is filled into the carburetor by the float switch. Starting from cold, its just normal that the carburetor is up and ready for a start. As you cruise along, the carburator is filled up with fuel coming from the fuel tank and is regulated by the float switch. Now, if the engine consumes more fuel than the rate of flow by the float switch, then it will drain the carburetor fuel reservoir empty. What could be the cause? You guessed it right... dirty jets or clogged fuel jet on the float switch. Solution: Open up the carb, clean every hole with wire brush. Blow compressed air on the needles and every hole you could see.. Take not of the ball bearings inside make sure there isnt anything loose when blowing with compresssed air.
Assemble the carb back and cruise for 20 minutes.
Other cases: dirty spark plugs, missfiring plugs, or worse case, CDI ..
Let me know if this helps.

Unscrew your gas cap when it is dying to see if it is plugged up not letting any air in. It sounds like it is creating a vaccuum in the tank and by switching lines you relieve it temporarily. Good luck hope this helps...

Check the cable. I've broken one myself on my 900CR 2 valve. The cable should run from the back of the tach to the top of the front cylinder head. I'm pretty sure in 2001 they were still using a cable for the Monster S4's. Start there. Unscrew both ends and see if you're missing one end or the other.
