So finally got the Carbon Emission Can removed and I would recommend it to everyone except for those in the state of California. The bike starts so much better and stronger.

Why not in California?

I'm curious what you think the repercussions would be for someone living in this state if they removed this device from their motorcycle.

My knowledge is solely from reading up on other forums but because of California State's strong emission laws, this canister is required. I would assume that if you were going through an inspection in the State of California, the bike might not meet the requirements and fail the inspection.

The canister is required to sell the bike new (dealer/manufacturer requirement) but once purchased there is no annual inspection so if you remove it there really aren't any repercussions.

I removed mine quite early on but didn't notice any difference in running at all quite frankly.

My '12 EVO has the starting issue but only when it is cold. It wasn't a problem until recently (5800 miles). Last week I was in North Carolina and every morning it was a very hard start. But once started it ran all day no problem. But I was frustrated with it so one morning I put it in second gear (cold) and was easily able to push the bike. So I think its a valve problem. I just brought it to Duc wrench and he called to say yes the valves were too tight BUT that the valve guides were also worn out!! Apparently some of us got a bad batch on the 2012 models. Ducati NA prolly won't goodwill the parts but I'm gonna try anyway.

2012 Evo

Hi guys I just bought a 1100EVO with 6000KMs on it.. From what I'm Reading here a Valve Check is one of the first things for me to do as well as belts..
Ive been doing my own valves on my SS's for years and from what I see in the manual its not that much different..
No idling issues with the bike as of yet though.

Were you successful on the goodwill bid?

no luck at all with Ducati. The OEM guides were close to $200 but my wrench found D1000 guides that he has a good history with for a fraction of that price. God bless the independent shops.

Add mine to the list. Just bought a 2012 1100evo; 2500mi. Rode it 50mi and fell in love. But at the end of the ride it'd stall at every traffic light. #ItalianOwnership

>I let the bike cool but no change, normal startup dies after a second or two.
>Cracking the throttle ever-so-slightly (1100rpm) and it's totally happy. But CLOSING the throttle stalls.
>Air filter is pristine
>Battery good. 24hr w no tender has it at 13.1v when off.
>Hoping it's old gas, topped up and rode another 10mi, no change. Will run another 100 this weekend maybe.
>Fuel filter? I already have the tank off as I tried disconnecting the battery in hopes of resetting the TPS but no change. I may replace that next.


Something changed on that first ride. I'm not inclined to chase a throttle-body sync as the bike worked fine for awhile, but now does not. Will post updates, I want to figure this one out myself if I can. Not my first bike, just my first Ducati.


Update 10/21/19

With the throttle cracked the slightest bit, with an eye on the digital tach, the bike will idle fine, even as low as 950rpm, but close that throttle and it stalls. I checked every air line, they're fine. If I dial the throttle cable out a wee bit, the bike idles fine, as the throttle is cracked, but this is not proper. I believe the TPS needs a reset w a dealer PC. The sensor itself is $400 fyi. One thing,
possibly related: I installed new OEM grips, as the previous owner had aftermarket. The right grip comes from Ducati with a new throttle tube. Perhaps the dealer would re-calibrate TCS when doing this?


The battery, even on tender is getting sluggish to start the bike, even a after a week on tender- I will replace it. Have not done fuel or oil filter, not convinced they're culprits.

Problem identified. The two small air hoses coming form MAP sensor to Throttle Bodies had developed cracks. I had looked at them, but the cracks formed on the back side. $12.
