Question about 2001 Ducati 996
When I bought the bike (used) the headlight long beam would "lag" ie come one a full second or more after switch-on. Now it does not work at all. The bulb is good. The switch checks good too.

Hi, Anonymous if your headlight is not working, keeps burning out or is dim the first thing you need to check is the headlight bulb for damaged filaments then check your light circuit fuse, that being said the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty ground or power supply wire to headlight bulb socket.
2. Worn, chaffed, or broken wires in the light circuit.
3. Corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets in wire connectors.
4. Faulty hi/lo beam switch.
5. Faulty ignition switch.
6. Fuse is good but no continuity on both sides.
7. Faulty wiring between battery positive and headlight bulb socket.
8. Weak charging alternator/generator.
9. Faulty voltage regulator/rectifier, overcharging.

Chips and relays go bad, but before checking that I would: Check that you are getting current in the socket that the bulb connects to. Also make sure that the socket is solid and that the connectors are intact. Make sure all wires are connected. Sometimes the ground wire or others disconnect, but look connected. I'm sure you pulled out all fuses to check with a flashlight [if you cannot see if on was blown with the naked eye]. Also, odd and obvious as this sounds, sometimes the replacement bulb may be defective too. So I'd have a couple new ones to see if that is the problem. Follow the wiring to make sure that the wiring or connectors are solid. Actually disconnect and connect all connectors as sometimes loose connections cannot be seen with the naked eye. And I would check everything forward and reverse, as it is sometimes to miss something if you only go in one direction. In other words, start at the headlight, then work back to the chips and relays, then start at the chips and relays and work toward the light. One thing I do is work in a dark place and use a bright flashlight to focus on areas I am checking. Seems to work better than in a lighted garage, etc.

hi m8,,if all is been adjusted as u say ,and still high,,4 an easier option ,, u will have to take off the head set fairin,, wen u can get to the head light, take off the 2 top screws holding headlight on,,and fit on some spacers or a few washers this will tilt the head light down ,,leave the to bottom screws of the headlight as they are ,, just do the top,, u will have to re adjust the light back up,,cheers

Your fuel pump is vacuum operated, I would look for a crack in the rubber somewhere. Also, the side stand, the bike will start with it down, but will shut off the second you put it in gear. I have a 2002 S4.

Testimonial: "sidest. switch OK. Short wiring pump doesn't make it run! Emptied tank, found a loose part with o-ring seal on the bottom. Dealer tomorrow "
