1098 shifter is stuck! wtf

Ok
so im riding my 1098 today, im as happy as can be! all the sudden i hear a whine come from the clutch, all day i was having problem's catching a gear above 2nd. i look down and my pressure plate is NOT turning freely!!!! i think WTF!!! so i limp home in 1st gear. and my shifter is stuck in first but i can push the bike with out engaging the clutch. i am very pissed because i wanted to ride this weekend.

now i have to wait till Monday to call the dealer t see if they will pick it up. im tired of dealing with the little surprises with this bike. i wish it would just run with out a problem.

on a side note today i learned my bike is 2 times louder than a fatboy with straight pipes infact im going to start using my head phones or shooting ear plugs cause i cant stand the noise anymore!

In my case i had difficulty shifting as there was air/mist in the clutch line. I could not find neutral, down shift or upshift unless i was on the hammer, then i could up shift without the clutch but down shifting was a bitch. Dealer bled the clutch in two minutes and it is good as new. The problem was because of the crapp in the line the clutch would not engage enough. May help may not let us know.

Cheers

If it's stuck in gear but you can still pull in the clutch and push it, it could be either the lever return spring or a bent/dammaged shift fork.

Sorry you're having grief with it, but if you've been listening to the die hard Ducati zelots you should know by now: "IT"S A THOROUGHBRED, IT'S MENT TO BREAK DOWN"

Mind you , the last thoroughbred I saw that couldnt move under it's own power, the vet came out and put a 9mm behind its ear.

Hope you're back on the road soon!

Hey did you ever find out what was wrong with your bike? mine did the same thing tonight on the ride home. i had to limp it home in third gear. was it just the clutch? i was feeling bad for all you guys all this time and happy my bike was running awesome and all of a sudden this had to happen, the exact thing you decribed.

so wtf, are we supposed to ride the damn thing or make friends with tow trucks drivers?
my bike in the shop for 600 miles service, and I hope I don't have all those
problems "knocking on wood and broke it"
but I just know it I am going back there at some point for something,
already a power regulator and lean issues resolved.
