I'm new to Ducati's so forgive me if this has been answered already. I have an 1100. The bike shuts off abruptly one or two times when dropping it into first after just starting it in neutral. The sidestand is up ( I'm positive), clutch is pulled in, throttle is NOT engaged at this point. Any one experienced this? Any thoughts?

Regardless of whether the sidestand is up, I'd think that the sidestand switch would be the most likely problem. Having said that, I'm not sure how you go about testing or bypassing the sidestand switch.

Check the common mods section of the forum. There are a few how to's about the side stand switch, as well as some after market bypasses that you can get. My vote is also for the side stand switch.

Thanks for the tips! Found a great post in mods after searching "sidestand swith"
I have had two side stand switches break on my M1100EVO.
To disable this, cut the wires at the side stand switch.
Three wires: Black, green, and green and white.
Bare all three wires and twist them together.
Solder if possible. Cover with electrical tape.
This disables the cut out so at least you can ride it til you get a new one!
