Seems like Ducati is using the 30 or 40A (large) fuse as a "main fuse" in the last few schematics that I looked at. (This was on a 1098, 1198, and 848--I was looking at the U.Manuals that you download on-line for info on the alternator sizes.)
Anyway, DUC used to use the big fuse as just a Reg.Rectifier fuse, but as I mentioned, it looks like they use this fuse as a main, now. Also, it appears that on these SBK machines, that this fuse is now placed right on the starter solenoid.
Maybe the "new" Monsters are like that. That's where I would start looking. Shouldn't be too far from the battery.
Try this home-cure-all: Shove a DUC between your legs.
