Question about 2001 Ducati 900 SS i.e. N-C
Hi, Ab_brown 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.

The battery is a storage unit. If it's old, it can have problems, but it isn't likely. Besides...
"if its the battery wot drains the power from it"
You likely have to keep charging the battery because the batt is not receiving a charge from the bike's alternator.
Why not? Trace the wires from the batt. Find where the insulations bad or a connector came apart. If not wiring, then the alternator is not putting out any power to keep the batt charged. That may be a bad voltage regulator or a bad alternator.
For more help, get the Service manual from the dealer or from Clymer books. Another source is the 646 stacks in the reference section of the library.

I have to have you start at the basics first on this one. Check the spark plugs, the plug wires, and most importantly, the timing belt tension. Check all connections going to the crank sensor, and also check the rectifier connections and the coil pack connections as well as the spark boxes. Also, when was the last valve adjustment/belt replacement? Usualy the injected Duc's don't ever pick up missfire conditions. The Carburated versions are sometimes known for it, but usualy it's the result of the carbs out of synchronization. I would be willing to say this is a tune up issue rather than a broken part issue. If it were a broken part, you'd be experiencing the issue almost all the time, not just at high rpm's and high load. Check the tune up, let me know if anything looks out of the ordinary in there.
