Hi Oliver,

I confirm that the voltage should be around 14v with the engine running.
Anything below 13.5v and you have a rec/reg issue.

Cold voltage should be between 12-13v.

Hope it helps.

Could it be the neutral sensor? The one on my M1100S was randomly working.

Have you tried to start the bike while being on the bike, side stand up and clutch engaged?

You can't go wrong with EBC Sintered HH for the front. Progressive and powerful, they are great value for money.
I replaced the stock pads on the 1100 Evo because they were squealing.

The 696 makes for a good commuter. I did use mine as such for a few years. The only minus is that Ducati in general lose all their resale values if the mileage is high. And by high, I mean anything...

Hi Geoff,

Good choice on the M1100s. It's a fantastic bike and they have become very cheap considering the hardware it comes with (radial brakes, Ohlins suspension).
