Hold on...my 98CR is running carbs. It has been my understanding that the 98FE had injection.
August 98 was the start of the newer gen supersports, the apparently so ugly ones that were unrideable.

CR was the old style, that looked like they had run headlong into a bus.

Style is in the eye of the beer holder..

Old style- upto mid 98 = carbs. Late 98 - 2005 injected.

Even after all this time and so many generations of bikes since I still find the 98 through 06 era Supersports the best looking bikes around. Bet I'm a huge minority on that one.

Thanks all! I purchased a Haynes Ducati Manual and have been perusing it. I think this motorcycle is in fact carburated (but I haven't done an exhaustive research).

I did replace the fuel pump/filter and connecting hoses. The pump/filter hoses had deteriorated to the consistency of putty...sticky, gummy putty! So I purchased a foot ($28.00) of a hose designed for gas submerged applications.

I placed fresh fuel and it started right away, but still coughs a bit here and there. I plan to get a fuel additive hoping it will help remove any varnish/gum from the fuel system...

One other thing I noticed is that it seems to get quite hot on the left side as compared to the right side. Not sure what that means.

I'll keep the group posted. Once again, thanks for all the help/advise.

I stand corrected as Shrek states this is FI. As for the looks, I think this is a beautiful machine. Plus it was cheaper than comparable models those days and my insurance was also way less than for comparable models. So on my way to the State Fair 20 years ago (in OH), I called the dealership, asked if the motorcycle was still there and told them not to sell it as I was on my way...

Twenty years later, people still look at it as if it was a piece of art

Dear all: Reading the Haynes book it is unclear how to reach the fuel injectors. Any suggestions/diagrams/photos? I put some sea foam and ran the motor for several minutes but nothing has changed. Today I plan to start it again and let it run hoping the fuel additive works it’s magic. It seems the coughing/sputtering gets worse after warming up.

That sounds more like a valve adjustment issue to me. Anyone?.....anyone?

My experience valve issues are more noticeable as you increase revs, because it can't clear the exhaust gasses or get enough mixture in. I'm still voting fuel filter or fuel pump (voltage, seal) issue from the evidence so far.
