My 1098s has been sitting over the winter on a optimate charger and I fire it up every couple of weeks! Last week it would not start, it Turning over twice then the servo runs for another 5/10 seconds. I replaced the battery but it still only turns over twice won't fire and the servo runs on. Hope someone out there can help?? It's getting a spark but not sure about fuel as when I turn the key I don't hear the fuel pump but when I turn it off I hear a pump running for a second or so..
I checked the relays on the right hand side of the battery, they appear like water has got at them and the spades on the relay appear corroded. I will try to get two new ones and clean the fitting block! Have you any idea were I can get them without going to ducati as they normally take weeks even to get the smallest parts! Thanks for your help!
Hi guys thanks for all your help I replaced the two relays and had a new starter clutch fitted an the bike is starting and running very well! The relays i replaced looked like they had water damage so much so that the spades on them had changed colour!! I put the grease you recommended on and removed and cleaned the earth strap!! Thanks again
