1998 ducati st2.


Just got it. 32k miles. I just put new timing belts on and checked valve Clearance. Also new NGK spark plugs.

Took it out for first ride and it seemed good. Cluster lights are dimming when turn signal goes on so I know there's some type of electrical deficiency going but I'm not sure if it has to do with my problem.

After about 5 minutes of running the problem started to occur (right when warmed up I guess)


Main problem is that when I try to accelerate under 4k RPMs or so, the bike has no power and wants to die. Also bucks on and off. Higher RPMs seem to run fine. The bike is pretty much un rideable like this. Have to basically burn the clutch to go anywhere.

Please help. thanks


Oh and it starts fine and idles fine (kind of lopey like it could use a sync) but doesn't try to die at idle
