2019 950 Stalling issues

58183 Views 287 Replies 55 Participants Last post by  STLHyper950sp
So, I got the bike back from my dealer with an "update." The bike now stalls frequently. If you pull in the clutch when the revs are above say 4-5k the engine just stalls. The only way to keep it stalling coming to a light is to let the revs drop really low before you pull in the clutch. Obviously, this is totally unacceptable, as it stalled about 5-6 times on me yesterday and then gave me a hard time restarting each time. Also, when I stopped for fuel it gave me a hard time restarting. Is anyone else experiencing this. The dealer is getting a call today. Surprisingly, they are actually open on Mondays.

They chased my issue and found that it was a faulty throttle position sensor on the throttle grip. Mine was doing the same thing as yours and the issue got progressively worse. Have them check it. Mine became hard to re-start after a little bit.
Mine is stalling pretty bad as of late. Only thing done to it is the full Termignoni exhaust and associated upmap. Did the new TPS sensor fix your problem? Thanks.

S I am taking mine into a shop that just works on Ducati's. Apparently when you install the full system with the upmap, you set the parameter relearn when the bike is cold. My dealer did not do that. I took it to the other shop and we reset when it was hot knowing it would probably mess up and stall bad. That's exactly what happened. So I am going back to do it when it's cold and see what happens. I know my dealer did not do this, because I rode the bike to them and it only took 25 minutes for them to give it back to me.
Fingers crossed.

UPDATE: So I got my bike back from BMS (Boulder MotorSports - they are Ducati specialists). Bike is stock except the full Termignoni with upmap. Bike was stalling very badly (23 times on a 60 mile ride). Wasn't impressed with dealer service, so I decided not to use them unless I have to. They did a parameter relearn and MAF learn and rode it a couple of times. Apparently the new 950's are very tempermental on setup (different than 821/939) when doing these relearns.
I was only able to take it on a 33 mile ride this morning, but ZERO stalls. I tried to recreate scenarios when it would stall and never hiccuped once. Took about 8 miles for the bike to feel like it should when the ecu compensates for riding style, etc.
I took every idea this forum had for stalling and brought it to their attention. He did tell me he talked to a connection at Ducati and they are aware of the stalling issue and he expects to see an update to address this. He couldn't tell me when and what they are looking at, but it's better than nothing if it actually happens.
Hopefully this help someone. I'll update if it changes for the worse. Fingers crossed.

Got my bike back today. I was not able to ride it due to snow covered roads, but I did start it when I got home and noticed that the idle seemed a tad stronger. After letting it warm up to temp, I revved it up a bit and let the idle fall. It sounded stronger 'off idle' and i didn't drop far enough to make it sound like it would die. I let it get to 200 and tried again. Sounded strong with no sign of low idle after letting off throttle. Hoping it fixed it. The dealer said they had 18 hours into it and actually flew the guy from California out to diagnose. He said they have been dealing with a lot of these in California for this issue. All my paperwork says is they performed throttle body cleaning, synced them and performed mass airflow adjustment.
My service guy did say over the phone that they had to go into the throttle body parts and adjust parts that Ducati says should never be touched (even by dealer). He didn't explain further.
If anyone is being stalled by the dealer, I have the guys name that wa my SAM (service area manager) from Ducati and he is aware of the issues with the 950's. I don't know if he covers the entire US, but I can get you his name. At least be a starting point. Just PM me if you need the name.

Was able to ride the bike yesterday for the first time since I got it back (22 days ago). I left and temperature outside was 27 degrees. Bike ran well and never stalled. I didn't drop below about 1350 rpm's when I pulled in the clutch. I tried a couple of things to get it to stall and it didn't. Besides freezing my ass off, ride went well. Left work and and it was about 65 degrees out. Bike ran well again and bike never dropped below about 1320 rpm's. Again, tried to get it to stall in places that it did before. I was watching the idle at stop lights and it stayed constand and didn't flutter up and down. Take off was a little easier as I didn't have to rev it up so high to get going.
So I would say it is fixed, but will give it a few more rides to fully trust in it. I'll update if anything goes wrong.

I also have the new BMW s1000rr and that thing has been plagued with issues as well. Fortunately, both of my dealers have been great. For me, however, I just have that kind of luck. If I bought a bag of rocks, they would all be broken when I received them. 😁
What kind of issues are you having? Working on a race team and we are running the new 2020 s1000rr.
