|Flog||i haven't had any stalling problems but hitting false neutrals between 5 and 6 when getting up it in the twisties is a common problem. Not the time to be having a neutral situation I can tell you!! Bike has done about 3500 kms so hopefully it will improve as it beds in!!|

Had 2 stalls today, and possibly a 3rd but downshift to 2nd to braking caught it back to running. The instruments was on "outside temp", and goes back to 1st screen like a fresh start.
The shifting requires you to be firm, up and down the pattern.

my back break is also weak, but I am going to fix that when I do the 3,000 miles oil change.
What are you going to do to fix it??

Thanks for all the replies. Much apreciated. At least I know I am not going crazy and to know what some solutions can be.
Peter 1200 - my back break is also weak, but I am going to fix that when I do the 3,000 miles oil change.

3,000 kms and had my first stall today stopping at some lights.
False neutrals 4-5 mainly. I also thought it was me as this is my first Ducati too. Been riding for 35 years, so I'm no newbie either.
My useless back brake is more of a concern to me.

No shifting problems.
No stalling before or after full Termi.

|Borracho||Ditto on the full Termi curing the engine issues. I still have the false 5-6, 4-5 & 1-2 but I usually catch it before I disengage the clutch.|

Took approx. 6000 miles before the gearbox actually ran smooth. Have slightly over 2000 on the 1200 now and not ideal but improving. What may help is to increase the clutch lever outward so you get more stroke for the clutch to disengage (hope your hands are big enough) and reduce that whilst the bike breaks in. Note that the 1200 gearbox is the same as the st4s gearbox ... (I think, ratios are the same).
I think the word is patience ... as I experienced it before ...

the stalling issue has been covered on this forum extensively. most, i believe, have had some luck fiddling with the air bleed screws in the throttle bodies, or just take it back to the dealer. my S4R would die after a start when the engine was hot (say, after refueling during a long ride). i backed out the air bleed screws a quarter, or half turn, and has never stalled again.
the false neutrals have occured with every new ducati i've had. for me, these have gone away as the tranny beaks in, and after a few oil changes. it also could be that you need to shift with a little more force than your previous bike, or position the shifter lever for more mechanical advantage.
my new multi 1200 had a false between 5th-6th until the second oil change @ 3,000 miles, and has been fine since then.
