    Default MTS1200 poor running after a layup at the Ducati Hospital

    Hello All,
    How are you?
    My Multi has been laid up in Glasgow for nearly a year and recently was discharged back to me after being reassembled after a car driver reversed into me and wrecked it.

    The bike is running very roughly. Throttle response low down is jerky and hard riding in higher gears produces uneven running to the point where it feels dangerous to rev the bike hard.
    I have run some Redex through it and no difference yesterday after a 200 mile thrash around the N Highland, where I live.
    Traction control is very intrusive at levels 1 and 2, to the point where it will not clutch up wheelies on demand as it used to do very easily.
    The bike has a Mivv link pipe/can and power commander and has never given me any running problems of any sort in the 9 years that I have had it.
    The can has been rebuilt recently, the bike is mapped above 4k. I am unsure if this would have affected both the low running rpms and the mapped ones.
    Has anyone else experienced anything like this please?
    Its making me sad as I have only just got the bike back after 11 months!
    Have a nice day,
    Ric.

    Sorry to hear that your bike isn't running properly Ric. I would say take it back to Ducati Glasgow and ask them to fix it properly but since that are around 300 miles from you that's probably not so easy.
    Unfortunately there is whole range of possible causes of the symptoms. Connecting a diagnostic software like Melcodiag may be able to reveal a faulty sensor. It could be a long shot but worth trying.
    BTW I have deleted you extra post.

    Hi Derek and Mr. tripple ate,
    Thanks for replying - I’ll have a gander at the sensor thingy TA.
    Yep, the trip to DG is a ball ache Derek, so I am going to spin it up on the Dyno and have a look, as its been 8 years since I had a gander at the fuelling and I fancy a go anyway.
    As for the TC, I think I have forgotten how to ride it during the lay up and just need to practice more. I‘ve been giving it more of a handful today and the technique is beginning to come back.
    Anyone meeting down Inverness way soon? I’d like to be a bit more sociable before the ‘winter comes’.
    BTW, DG have done a great job on the cosmetics I wanted. The bike looks really fresh.
    I’ve no idea how to post a pic though, can I send you one Derek and you can stick it up for me if you fancy and have a mo. I think I have your mobile number somewhere.
    Have a great evening to you both from me!
    Ric.

    Good point Stuart. It's easily missed but should show and error on the dash.

    Posting pics is easy Ric. Either attach it to your post using the 'Manage attachments' button under the message box using advanced editing,follow the instructions and should appear in your post as a thumbnail that will open to full size when clicked, OR, if you have you pictures on a hosting website, right click on the image on the hosting sight and select 'copy image address', then in your DUN window click on the square icon with a tree on it and paste the URL of your pic into the box that opens. Click OK and it will place the URL in your post with [IMG] [/IMG] around it. Preview your post to check and you should see the image within it.
