I don't know why , just sharing experience dude. If I had a $ for every inexplicable thing Ducati's do i'd be a very rich man. I had a 999 motor do exactly this at 5000rpm, not 2000rpm, except mine backfired. Removed 1 shim...fixed. Certainly worth a look, it's free. My current Euro 998s will only run with NO SHIMS & i'm certainly not going to get into asking why coz it came from the factory with 2 shims.

But my question is… what changed to cause this condition? A little Italian didn't show up one night and mess up the height of the ignition sensor.

Which begs the question, has the OP ever seen the bike run right? If so… when was the last time it ran right?

The bike was running as usual, I didn't use it for a week, then, this happened. The only explanation could be that my mechanic replaced the water pump like a month ago, but after that the bike was running fine with no issue, until now.

Yea, ya just gotta go through the usual stuff, battery, charging system, connectors first. I doubt something magically failed, its probably something loose or WET. These bikes don't like to get wet and any dampness can damage the fuel in the bike (condensation) AND connectors.

Ahh...the rest of the story. It makes even more sense now. Removing and replacing the left side cover can upset the CPS gap. The symptoms are consistent with this being the culprit, but not for certain.
