Smile M696 2009 No electricity at All

Hey

i just bought a used M696 2009 three days ago, its an amazing bike and loving it.
suddenly today: i started up the bike with the choke, works fine till 2 minutes later it turns itself off
i tried to turn it on again, but nothing going on! no electricity
the first owner said he just changed the battery and for sure it doesn't need a battery also
i called the local delarship and they said its either a dead battery or valve something
and he asked me to schedule an appointment for next week, but i wanted to ask you first .
and also there is no warranty on the bike.

so what you guys suggest ?
its my first bike and have no idea how to deal with problems like this.


Thanks

If you turn the key on and absolutely nothing happens, no lights, horn, or anything at all.

1. Dead battery, but they don't usually just quit out......However on that note..... many a new Ducatista have been known to "accidentally" turn their key all the way to the left to lock the bars before removing the key. This position is a park condition and can leave the back light on quickly draining the battery.

2. You blew a fuse. Check the main fuse, it certainly won't be an accessory item that blew.

3. A battery cable came off. It happens. Maybe the previous owner did not tighten the bolts enough. Check the ground wire where it attaches to the frame that it did not break or come loose somewhere you wouldn't think of.

4. The ignition wiring harness has come loose or disconnected due to some fiddling. Trace them back.

5. Voltage regulator is toast. I've heard that when they go, they can burn up a diode that separates the battery from the rest of the bike. The diode is a one way check valve and if it gets burned up can allow the battery to discharge when not in use.

I can't think of anything else.

Do you have a battery charger? If so, hook it up for an hour or so and check to see if anything works when you turn the key on. If it lights up, remove the charger and see if things still work.

Oh and since you are new to Ducati, Check here http://issuu.com/ducatiomaha/docs/mo...ine&mode=embed for a parts diagram on your bike. Page 44 and 46 have drawings that show you where the fuses are kept.

put the key in, turn to the on position- does the cluster come on?
did the fuel pump run for a moment?
if so and it doesn't start you're problably looking at a kickstand switch.

If nothing comes on, you've got some looking to do. the individual circuits have a fuse box on the right in the trellis frame. the main power fuse is on the starter relay connector and you'll have to remove the fuel tank to access it. While you are there you can check the voltage regulator connectors up under the front of the frame behind the plastic covers, you can clean and reinstall the main ground on the front left of the engine case, check the connections on the starter relay and on the battery. clean all contacts off with a fine wire toothbrush and apply dielectric grease at the connections before retorquing the connections.
It's not likely that the bike would start then die a minute later if the battery was that bad.
