1000R sometimes dies

so I took my bike out for a spin yesterday and when I was coming home, on getting ready to make a turn into my neighborhood, I pulled in the clutch, downshifted, braking, and I noticed that the bike had died. She had done this once before when coming up to a stop sign but I excused it as being new and tight. Now I am wondering if I should let my dealer know about it or not, or if anyone else has had this happen?

I believe she is the Devil in a candy wrapper.

Well I figured stalling would be different, but I suppose not.. lol I just got power back on so my brain is not quite what it should be. I have been without power since the 10th. I suppose your right... its the stalling issue...

Dova - how many miles do you have already on your bike?

So far I've only been able to put in about 130 miles since I took it home about 10 days ago,it's been raining here a lot.

I have so far I've had no stalls, but I do observe a very noticable "tick" sound from inside the engine somewhere... it only happens when the bike's moving, and I notice it the most whenever I downshift - about 1 second after. I downshift... and then "Tick!" from inside the engine, very strange feeling. I've never heard such a sound from any of my bikes before. It's similar to the ticking sound of a bad cam chain tensioner, but its not continuous. What the heck could that be

Only 170 miles, weather has been shat here. Theres to much debris from the ice storm on the road to do much riding. That and on the weekends its 30 degrees, during th week it gets up to friggin 60!

I dont know about a tick or atleast havent heard it... I figure everything is under warranty so if its going to happen let it happen in the first 600 miles..lol

Dova,

Assuming the F4 and the Duc 1098 are fairly similar as far as electronic engine controls and EPA compliant exhausts are concerned you might want to visit either "ducatispot" or "1098-forum.com" (google either) and read the posts re: stalling. I know it's a long shot and we're talking apples and oranges. But they're both fruit, no? Maybe you'll find something of interest or informative.

I got mine. Boy do I ever got mine.

Might have to do that, I plan on a midpipe for my 600 mile service. hopefully that will help it smooth the 5k rush, and the stalling.
