Yes you guessed it.... On are way to what would have been a great day's racing at thruxton... Dave's ( Tart 2) 999 broke down Manage to get the thing going again but its running like a pile of poo, Amber light on and no heat from front pipe.... Looks like this could be yet another coil breakdown When are Ducati going to sort all these problems out

Bad luck mister

Get it in and get it sorted quickly. Fred's bike is done and seems to be running well now, just a shame it is not done as an automatic recall i guess.

Sounds so similar, You can see whole new cables etc on mine now, and it's been running fine for 15 miles so far

Get the thing booked in ASAP before the rush starts!

all the dealers i know are stripping these old parts off and replacing with the new version when ever they see them.
its got more to do with customer relations than anything else, the 999 has had enough bad press
i dont know how these things are delt with in the uk

Dave I would still lean on Ducati to send you the parts for free. It's a known issue so they shouldn't be turning you away.

As Tony says I would think this would still be a warranty issue even if you're out of warranty, there are enough cases just on this board which should be able to justify this.

All depends on how Ducati play it and how soon you want your bike I guess
