1098 turns over but will not start.

I know there have been plenty of posts pertaining to the same symptoms and I have scoured the internet for weeks trying to find a solution to no avail. I would greatly appreciate someone more knowledgeable than I guiding me through this. The bike turns on with zero codes on dash, will turn over, but a bit slow. Will not actually start. Would like some guidance on what to look at and best course of action to isolate and diagnose. Fuel system cleaning alone was $500 which I could easily have done myself. And they weren’t sure themselves of what might be the problem. Really don’t want to go to a shop again.

Ok, so here’s what has been done so far:
- starter removed to clean commutator and check brushes
- injectors were checked to make sure they’re not leaking and will pass fuel
- second starter lead was installed for better current flow
- new 220cca battery installed
- voltage regulator was supposedly changed according to vin before bike was purchased
- fuel system was cleaned by Ducati master techs
- isolated FPR to verify functioning
- fuel pump check valve was bad so installed stand alone check valve
- spark plugs are nearly brand new

Another important detail I failed to add; when bike would start it would not idle. Very rough and choppy. Thought it was the old battery. I had 3 different places check and they said it was good, but figured I’d play it safe and replace it anyway. Old one was 180cca.

The purpose of posting videos is to hear and see the starting procedure. Your video has to much external noise.

I suspect the OP bought a non-runner and thought it wouldn't be too hard or expensive to get it running. Good luck. I also doubt very much that the starter was actually removed. Let me guess-2007 model?

This bike needs to go to a proper shop that knows the make and model very well.

The bike was ridden to me by the previous owner with an admitted rough idle. And I personally removed the starter, disassembled and cleaned the starter assembly. I’m an aviation technician by trade. Not my first rodeo. I would greatly appreciate if you guys would refrain from completely unproductive responses such as the previous one. Thank you

As for the response about the video, I apologize but I unfortunately live in front of a major intersection, thus the background noise. May try to do a late night recording and see if that helps

Then why don't you tell us how to fix it instead of asking?

My apologies and correction. You bought a barely running bike and thought it wouldn't be too hard or expensive to get it running properly. Good luck.

The bike needs to go to a shop that knows this make and model well.
