  1. Maintenance & Repair
    I picked up a salvage Monster 796 a few days ago and have it about 90% put together BUT the bike will click when I hit the start button but nothing else. The relays click and are sending 12.6V to the solenoid harness. It will turn over if I jump directly to the starter and if I jump the solenoid...

    After a year of wanting one, I picked up a 2020 797+, Star White Silk. I named her Katarina. My first project will be lowering the suspension a tad, as I am 5'4" with a 29inch inseam. Hulk is small ;)
  3. Maintenance & Repair
    Hello guys, This problem is a bit weird. I ride this bike daily and once a week the bike would just shut down on me during my ride and just won’t start up. The fuel injection system isn’t priming so the bike only coughs but after a day of it sitting out there it will start up again as if nothing...

    Title says most of it. Can an exhaust from an S2R 800 clear the side of the double sided swingarm to be fitted on an M800 motor? I've seen other threads with something close to this but nothing answering this specific question.
  5. Maintenance & Repair
    I attached a photo with a highlighted hole in the M696 engine case. I am looking to use this hole to reinforce the kickstand mount. Does anyone know the original purpose and what the bolt thread/size is?

    Has anyone ever painted their forks? Like is it a thing to just rattlecan your forks instead of replacing them?
  8. Upgrades, Performance & Mods
    So I was going about the process of cleaning up my bike after doing a bit of maintenance, just generally trying to make it look nice, and when it came to wrapping my exhaust I found that my exhaust header on my front valve is rusted to it. I don't have a drill or a bit to drill it out so I...

    I recently got my hands on a DP mono seat for my Ducati Monster S2R, It doesn't seem to fit 100% at my tank though. I was hoping some of you guys could give me some suggestions on what the problem could be. PS: I'm planning to add stickers / paint it to fit the rest of the bike. So that the...

    Since the S2R has the coveted single sided swingarm, its a shame Ducati stacked the exhaust the way they did, obscuring the swingarm from the right side. A guy I used to be friends with (we had a falling out during this project) owed me some work as part of a van deal and modd'd my exhaust so...

  15. New Member Introductions
    Howdy I purchased a 2015 1200S last year and the bike has completely blown me away. Coming from mid 00's era Japanese bikes the build quality, performance, and electronics of something like this really made me appreciate new bikes. Plus it's got that Ducati special sauce that makes it just a...
  16. General Monster Forum
    Does anyone have a resource for a Haynes type workshop/service manual for the 2006 695? Couldn't find one for sale anywhere. I can only find the 620 up to 2005. Are the manuals essentially the same? Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

    I'm James and I have a 2001 Ducati Monster 750. I last rode it in Spring 2015 after recovering from hip surgery. On my first ride back the rear axle had nearly slid completely out while I was riding down the highway. I made the naive decision that this was a sign this was a project bike...

    I rebuilt both front calipers (gold Brembos, 4 piston) a few years ago and ever since the left one still hasn't worked (original reason why I rebuilt them). I essentially rebuilt that one twice since it didn't work the first time so I tore it apart and did it again. I have bled them multiple...
  19. Tech
    Pulled my headlight to straighten my right turn signal arm and only unplugged that signal wire to make more room to work on it. Plugged it back in. Now starter doesn't turn. I just get the same sound of the fuel pump priming as I do when turning on the ignition key. Any ideas would be most...

    Hello all, I bought my first Ducati in 2003, a used 750 Senna, red rims and all. Eventually sold the Senna and bought my second Ducati in 2006, a brand new S4r. Now, all these years later, I am planning a build to transform the S4r into an adventure bike. [cue the purist rage] My first...
