2012 Monster 1100 EVO - problem starting the bike

Hello. Just joined the Ducati family and new to the forum here!

Background:
-I recently purchased a used 2012 Monster 1100 evo with 6000kms.
-Inspection was done to the purchase and everything passed...
-No warranty left

Symptoms:
-I would start the bike and the bike wouldn't hold idle and die with in 1-2 seconds
-I could force it to hold idle with throttle but as soon as I let go, the bike dies
-It happened to be twice so far and both time it was after 30-60 minutes of riding and the bike was fairy warm, although not overheating.
-If I leave the bike and come back after few hours it would start normally.

The oil in the bike was a bit dirty so I changed the oil and the filter today and the bike seems to be running a lot smoother. I will have to monitor if the problem happens again but for the time being, just want to know if there are members here that have experienced this issue and what the solution was.

Any help would be appreciated!

Oil Change: August 11th, 2014
-Motul 300V 10W40
-OEM oil filter

Update: August 14th, 2014
-After 1 hours of riding and make stops here and there, I had no problem starting the bike 3-4 times except for once.
-Couldn't hold idle and died within 1-2 seconds. I tried again immediately and gave it some gas for 3-4 seconds and it had no problem idling.

Are there any mods on the bike? Have you checked the fuel filter?

There are only cosmetic mods are on the bike.
After the oil and filter change, it's been running much smoother and no problem starting so far. Ducati OEM filter and MOTUL 300V (10W40) was used.

You do realize what is required to access the fuel filter?

At about 12000km my bike started to cut out at idle and was hard to start. It turned out that the valves were too tight. I would have never suspected the valves. I hope a simple fix as changing your oil is the answer, but I would do a major service or at least change all the fluids and filters.

I actually have no clue where this is and how to check it.

My post was directed toward UNC Monster who asked if you had checked the fuel filter.

It, as with most modern FI bikes, is integral to the fuel pump. That means you have to remove the tank plastics, remove the pump package, and then replace the filter. Not an extremely difficult task, but not as easy as looking at a translucent plastic filter hanging on the side of the bike.

BTW, a fuel filter change is not listed as part of the Ducati programmed maintenance plan for the 1100evo.

Cks, if you are handy I suggest getting the service manual for your bike. Taking the plastic off the tank and taking the tank off the bike are the hardest parts. Go to the Ducati site and download the parts list for your bike. This will give you a schematic for all the components of your bike. If you have any problems, take a picture or ask a question. There is loads of knowledge on this site.

You mean it's not right beside the reservoir for the blinker fluid?

Quite far from handy here.
