I know diagnostics over the net are never easy, but so far PSB is 10/10 on my Aprilia Issues, so thought I may as well try my luck on the Ducati.
On Monday I was preparing to head out for a ride on my Duc, let her warm up till the low temp light was off, rode down my steep driveway, then clicked her into 1st gear, went to pull off , got to about 10kph barley moving and the bike stalled and a heap of smoke started coming out of the air intake holes in the front of the fairing. Smelt really really oily as well.
Tried to start it again and it kicked over then did the same thing as before (just like a stall) except i still had the clutch engaged. Decided not to push my luck any further and put it back in the shed.
Today I called up the dealer as it is still under warranty and they said to drop it in for a look over.
Just came back from the garage as I was trying to work out how the heck i'm gonna get a non running bike over to the dealer, decided to check again if still smoky etc - and the thing kicked over first try and set into a nice idle with no smoke or anything....... I know I should and will still be taking it to the dealer, but any ideas on what the issue may be or had a similar experience?
Now, i'm on the hunt for a jap bike as my two Italians are giving me the shits at the moment
