so i'm trying to pull the bike apart to figure out what shortedout and blew fuses...i was pulling off the airbox and there is something attached to the bottom. i couldn't get to the second bolt holding it onto the airbox so i wiggled it around a bit..then i guess i wiggled it a bit too much and the wire that is attached to it came loose and looks like it broke :-[

any idea what it is and where it came from?

i'm going to take pics and post them in a sec..gotta run inside to do that.

According to the pdf from ducati it appears it is an ignition coil

unlike myself, i am sure you checked the fusebox first ::)
actually, yes. i was on the road in stop and go traffic when the bike just went dead. amazingly the first thing i thought of was the fuses. and what's more..i went for the master right off.

No worries, cut the end back about 1/4" and thread the spark plug cap back on it.

;D
that's the stuff i need to hear!
now if you sold new spark plug wires for my bike i wouldn't be as worried ;) ;D

thanks chris..coming through as always [thumbsup]

You're very welcome!

Actually, I do have a small stache of wires only that work. (if you want them, please e-mail [email protected]) When you go to the speed shop, ensure the wires you get have a stranded wire core and not the suppression core. The wood screws at either end like to bite into the metal of the conductor.

;D
