    If it's any consolation both of my road-going Ducatis are utterly trouble-free and display no such behaviour altho' the R doesn't like anything less than 100mph :p

    Get an 800ss. It beats everything :)

    ..seriously, it's a law of diminishing returns on the road and I am of the opinion that 100bhp is MORE than ample at all times.

    There's a lot of sense in that. When you have WSB bikes producing 200-220bhp and MotoGP bikes producing 240-ish you have to question the distinctions between the classes as well as the relevance of...

    I am sad

    I've just come back from a fantastic week in the Highlands with the bike - I stayed up at Torridon.

    Brilliant weather everyday....now back to the same old same old.

    This horsepower arms race is utterly insane as far as road bikes go of course. I can't use all of my 800's 83bhp and virtually nothing comes past me and it on the road :rolleyes:

    That is not quite correct, is it? The rules were adapted to keep twins of all makes competitive. Not just Ducatis. The series will be a lot poorer without twins. It'll just be another series full of...

    I'm worried about the long term future of the twins as I am not interest in a 4, V or otherwise. I like the twins very much.

    Oh dear! Presumably the lack of competitiveness of the 1198 is a factor in this, or perhaps the cynic might suggest it's posturing re. the rules. Whatever, it's a sad state of affairs. :(

    Failed oil pump.
    Blocked filter
    Pressure relief valve stuck open.

    How to tell? Put a new one on, borrow one or put an oil pressure gauge on.

    That's the one. It tells you that you have low oil pressure which, is rather different from no oil. No oil can give you low oil pressure....but you can still have oil and low oil pressure as well!

    I've had one go on the 800 and another on the 748.
    They're both the same part number. The 800's was actually leaking out of the electrical connection on it.
