Won"t start after oil change

I own a 2005 Multistrada 1000DS and did a simple oil and filter change. Now the bike won't start. It cranks - chokes a bit but just keeps cranking. Is there something electrical that needs to be reset? I installed a Ducati filter 444.4.003.5A so it should be the right filter.
Seems crazy that an oil change would cause a problem but I've got one.
Thanks in advance for your help.

It has to be something else, are you sure you didn't upset/dislodge any wiring?
