Trouble starting '00 Ducati Monster 900

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' started by jono454, Sep 10, 2012.

  1. My Monster will only start with the bars full tilt to the left...

    I've had a look and a play around with the wiring but nothing's jumped out at me... the bike will start perfectly fine, but once the bars are moved more than 10mm to the right the engine cuts out and the electrics only kick back in once its near full lock to the left again...

    I'm no expert when it comes to this kind of thing, I'm guessing i'll just end up chucking it on a trailer and taking it to an auto electrician, but I'm hoping someone may have had a similar problem and could provide a simple solution?
  2. Does it have a clutch and/or side stand cut out? Wiring to these would be my first suspicion, followed by the main connector up to the instrument/ignition.
