Hi, Esa_karjalai this is a common problem when buying a motorcycle in one country and shipping it to another, my best advice is to contact a the closest Ducati dealer where you live and get their feedback I'm sure they have run into this situation before or any motorcycle dealer for that matter. You may also try contacting Ducati customer service in Bologna Italy for their feedback.also, try visiting some Ducati forums in your country. Good luck and have a nice day.

SOURCE: Had enough

it feels like it will stall. Doesn't do it all the time maybe after i've been riding for 20 mins or so. At the time i thought it was the Throttle position sensor (or so i was advised by Ducati Melbourne) and that cost me over 1k to 'fix'. I say fix because it reduced the problem. Instead of doing it every ride it did it maybe once every 4-5 rides. Have no idea what it is, taken it to dealerships and of course it won't play up on them when its there. It hasn't done it in the past 4 months, since i changed my sprockets and chain over. Then last night, it was a warmer night so i took it out and guess what, hour and a half into the ride started misfiring to the point where it was almost unrideable. I thought it could be a heat problem, even though last nights weather was around 14-15 degrees Celsius, i've ridden in warmer weather during the weekend. I've dropped enough coin on this puppy and although i love her to death i think its time i move on and remove this headache.,9 times out of 10, what your describing is an A/F mixture problem. I don't remember why we agreed with you, the timing sensor could have been bad, its been a while. Have you tossed the bike on a dyno and check the A/F mixture? I wouldn't doubt its way off and to be honest, it could be a very simple adjustment, you're dealer never found.,,,

SOURCE: Help: 93 750 supersport wiring diagram or charging system info?

tons of Italian spice at a budget price. Mine has nearly 20k on it. I would also take tire advice if anybody has any. Since the bike is down I am going to change those too. Mostly commuting some day trips and always ride in the rain. Thanks much.We're going to need some more info. How old is the battery? The battery won't hold a charge or the charging system doesn't put enough energy back to the battery to restart it after running for a while? Check all your electrical connections battery terminals, solenoid, starter, and engine/frame back to ground. On the left engine side cover is a heavy gauge cable from the altenator. Follow that wire to some push connectors. Check around the connections for burned or brittle wire insulation. Check the regulator/recifier (R/R), aluminum block with fins, wiring as well. It wouldn't be unreasonable, on a '93, to expect that it may need a new stator and R/R.,,,

SOURCE: 1999 Ducati 996 Will not start

yes, it is either the ignition relay which also runs the fuel pump or the feul pump itself is either locked up or just has gone bad. you should charge your battary then try it again and that does not work you can try hitting the feul pump with a small hammer after you have removed it from the tank, this sometimes will get it going again. i've had brand new bikes just out of the crate need a shock to the fuel pump to get it going. it's a contact problem between the brushes and the commutator of the starter motor. something else to look at before toy take the pump assembly out of the tank is to varifey voltage at connector body of the fuel pump under the tank. find an electrical diagram to find out which wires send the voltage to the pump, if you have voltage there at key on then you will have to pull the pump out. hit it with a small hammer on the body of the pump motor and plug the assembly back into the bike and hold the pump upright over a small container to catch gas that may come and turn the key again. if it does not run you will have to buy a new pump.

SOURCE: frame number


ZDM = manufacturer code (i.e. region code Z = Europe, country code D = Italy, manufacturer code M = Ducati)

3H99R = TYPE = model information: model, engine type (manufacturer assigned code). For US models, Ducati uses the last three digits to indicate the engine type.

9 = check digit for factory use. A single number or the letter X (varies) used to verify the accuracy of the transcription of the VIN

1 = Model Year 2001

A = model year 1980 B = model year 1981 C = model year 1982 D = model year 1983 E = model year 1984 F = model year 1985 G = model year 1986 H = model year 1987

J = model year 1988 K = model year 1989 L = model year 1990 M = model year 1991 N = model year 1992

P = model year 1993

R = model year 1994 S = model year 1995 T = model year 1996

V = model year 1997 W = model year 1998 X = model year 1999 Y = model year 2000

1 = model year 2001 2 = model year 2002 3 = model year 2003

B = plant of manufacture (manufacturer assigned code), B = Bologna

012329 = six digit serial number. Some manufacturers restart at 000001 each model year, while others just continue sequentially. Some use different number groups for different models.

I bought my bike in germany, I'm now back in Az.

I'd write Harley Davidson's archive department. Send them the serial number on the frame and they can tell you if your bike is a "domestic" model made for the U.S. or an "export" model made to the specifications of another country. It's the same deal if you buy a Mercedes in Germany and then bring it to the U.S. It must be "nationalized". You may have to change the headlight, turn signals, tail light, and some other things to bring it to Dept. Of Transportation specificatons. Good Luck

Kawasaki zx4r import.

You just need to make a couple of phone calls. Try a Kawasaki dealer close to your city. The USA dealers can check the frame VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) and tell you what you have. Since the bike was not intended for USA shipment, there is a possibility that only a Euro dealer would have the information. Find a Euro dealer on the web, then call or email for the information.
