Forgive me if this has been discussed somewhere but couldn't find anyone having the same issue as me.


I recently purchased a 2007 1098S, with a little over 6,000 miles. Service on the bike was meticulous and all the records came with it.


While riding, anytime the bike gets anywhere near 200 degrees F, it will randomly stall when I come to a stop. It's never done it while riding, only once I completely stop. Once it stalls it will NOT restart. It's just dead. Once I was able to jump it, today I was not. The battery is brand new, the voltage regulator was just upgraded, and while the bike is running it appears the stator is fine because the voltage stays about 14v.


I've run through everything with my service guys (at a Ducati dealer) over the phone and nothing worked.



Any ideas???

Dead battery, bad voltage regulator, fuel pump not running, stand switch malfunction, stator not charging the battery, probably some I'm forgetting.

Basically the battery is fine, I'm getting power to the bike but when I hit the ignition I hear a single click and nothing happens.

Dirty earths?

When you checked battery voltage did you do it after 8-9 quick starts in succession? Just to test it under load? Bet it drops below 9.

Higher temp of battery electrolyte will also affect battery capacity.

Well the bike won't start....

Check the connection of the ground of the negative battery terminal engine and battery. Scrub and clean the terminals.

Do you mean the other end of the negative cable? My dash is still telling me the battery voltage is correct so it shouldn't be the connections.

Your earth negative cable. The cable that goes from your battery negative to your engine block.

Just checked all the connections again, on every wire I can check and they're all good. After getting in closer it sounds like the click I'm hearing seems to be coming from the area of the voltage regulator. That's just odd because it was replaced a month ago.

The fuel pump is priming, that's actually the first thing the dealer had me check. I can clearly hear it with the tank cap open.

Mind explaining how? I'm pretty handy but wouldn't know how.
Make sure all the wires are secured at the solenoid terminals. If they are, bypass relay and see if the starter will crank. The solenoid is like high amperage relay, once it is energized it allows current to flow to the starter. If you still hear the clicking noise after bypassing solenoid, then you might have a bad starter.

Disregard that this video is for the Ford F150, the starter solenoid on Ducati works the same and can be troubleshoot in the same manner.
