And broken again

We're at 2,400 miles, around 1,000 since the last repair (sprag). Out riding with a group, and in 4th gear accelerating...then the motor revs like it popped out of gear. I kicked it down a gear, and it just revs again. I looked down to see if I had lost the chain, but it's still there. Everything looks, and feels normal. Clutch feels normal, bike starts and the gear indicator says "1" (or 2 or 3 or whatever). It's like there's no chain on the bike. No resistance to the revving at all. It didn't make any odd noises, it just broke.

MV/Ducati Austin sent a tow for me, and they have the bike. They checked it over and were kinda stumped. They'll open it up and see what happened. Fourth repair, in 2,400 miles. I'm so glad I bought an MV.

it can't be mechanical it has to be electrical

Nothing to do with the quick shifter, three techs have seen it and believe it's a mechanical issue.

ok

does the lever return to the center position?

if not its the lever spring.....

if it only shifts up or down its a ratchet pawl spring

there is an arm with a roller that centers the drum in each gear it has a spring......if its broken it won't "center" in a gear preventing the ratchet pawls from working

bikes have sequential constant mesh gear boxes they are in gear or neutral

Everything feels perfectly normal. It's exactly like the chain is missing, but it's not.

I feel for you. Time to write a letter to MV. Ridiculous for a bike to be that new and break like that

I've had a few small issues in about 3000 miles and some hard riding but nothing like that

To be honest if I had I would be trying to get my money back. I knew when I bought mine it would have a few 'charms' but to go that much is in my opinion not safe or fit for customer use
