Hello. Just joined the Ducati family and new to the forum here!
-I recently purchased a used 2012 Monster 1100 evo with 6000kms.
-Inspection was done to the purchase and everything passed...
-No warranty left
-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.
