Question New Member '13 Monster 1100 EVO

Good day fellow Monsters -

Hate to be new and asking questions already. Why does my Monster choke out / won't hold the idle for a few minutes when I start it up these days? Even after normal riding, stop for a bite, still warm start up is questionable.

Good to be in the group,

DJ

Welcome evo brotha!

Mine gets a little funny when it's warm and restarting it - possibly vapor lock? Does your bike still have the evap canister on it? Mine was scrapped.
I don't really know if this does anything actually, but if it struggles to start when that happens I open the gas tank to vent it for a quick second and it seems to start up faster. Don't really know why or if that's a just a mental thing, but try it out.

Thanks! Yes, have been wrestling with this for a while. Since my 15k service is due i am going to have a more skilled Ducati mechanic address it. It will set my retirement savings back a bit (it ain't cheap as you probably know).

Thanks again.

Where are you located? I'm in lovely Dayton, OH but I have all my service done at Ducati of Indianapolis. I just had my 15,000 mile service done, plus new tires and a battery. Cost $2000. The bike is running better then ever. I've owned since 11/14. Good luck the 15,000 service will probably solve your issues.

Ride as often as you can.
