749r problem

i think im going to give ducati leeds 28 days to sort out the cutting out problem if jhp carnt fix the problem,im awaiting a new ecu from ducati,if the problem is still their im out of ideas,the bike has covered no more than 800 miles from new,the bike has cut out from day one(i put it down to new/tight engine) fed up of not having the bike in my garage for me to ride,after the 28 days were in to april! i think im going to ask for a replacement, not what i thought i would get for 13,000

Pedro,mine cut out when new .i found that by leaving the fast idle lever slightly open it cured the problem.
the third new ECU cured it completely .
What tick over speed have you got when the engine is fuuly warmed up?

it cut out when you ie slow down from any speed to a t junction etc.it cuts out also on tick over, but in main its when you down change to lower gears when you roll off the throttle. it does it cold/ warm/ from 20 mph/70 mph. its done this from new in standard form.it has allways had this problem for day one,like i said,i put it down to new engine

Hi My 999 Did it a couple of times just as you said changing down, just cuts out. Warm or cold. It's not the best feeling in the world when it happens (coming into a roundabout with cars up your ass). It must be to do with the ECU as mine dosen't do it now since having the race system with the diffrent ECU. Have you spoke to Ducati UK yet? Hope you get it sorted. Cheers steve

Pedro,

If it's anything like the 749S, it's all to do with cam timing. I had a similar problem on my bike, but it wasn't as severe. It was fixed by setting up the cam timing and tickover again. JHP/Ducati Leeds should know that? Might be worth prompting them though...

Good luck.

most 748R's had that problem, used to really p*ss me off, id be at junctions/lights reving the bike to keep it going. Very cautious when i bought the 996R, this baby runs so sweetly im glad I changed.

my 749 had the same problem an it turned out to be the coils!
These were replaced and has been problem free since, fingers crossed!
