I came across your post as I was waiting for the tow truck to pick up my 2007 Ducati Monster 695.
I seem to be having the exact same problem you described.
Can you give me a little more detail as far as where to look and what to replace? Spending 900 bucks on a fuel pump is out of the question for me. Can't afford it right now.
Hi man, I came across your thread on your Monster fuel pump and I'm having the same problem. The shop wants to put in a new fuel pump. I'd love to hear how you fixed it if you could help me out, thanks!
