Question about 2002 Ducati 998 S
Do you have one of those tiny batteries in there? The ones that lay flat, gel pack,? Did you put the gel in it? Did you charge it up overnight when it was first filled and sealed? I have the same problem, weak battery, same battery, 2002 S4, Even when the battery was new, it was sluggish. My bike sat all winter, soaking wet, never touched it, when I went out to start it, I put the charger on it and it fired right up. Everybody else had to go to the shop to get the carbs cleaned and the batteries replaced. Anyway, check the voltage, it should be 12.6 volts anytime. In a week it will run down, it is a static system.If it doesn't hold a charge, replace it. Or do what I do, charge the thing up every time. A battery tender will do the job. Hope this helps.
