The bike only has 1700 miles on it and is ridden pretty hard on Sunday morning sport rides. I run 91/93 ethanol free fuel. I don't accept that it is a fuel issue or not riding it hard enough. It should not have taken over 5 weeks to start to swap parts into from the demo on the floor.

Waiting for Italy to give the service department the next step is ridiculous. If the Northeast service manager is spread to thin then he should give the dealership the green light to troubleshoot the problem and Ducati should reimburse the shop. I had to wait for the rep to come to the shop and work with the tech personally. If he doesn't want customers calling him, I get it. In this case I gave him the option to call me for a brief conversation. That would have been good customer service.

So for the guys still having stalling issues, maybe have your dealership check the throttle bodies. I have about 300 miles on the bike since the swap and its running good. I'm trying to put as many miles on the bike as I can before we get closed out by the cold in upstate NY.

Funny, just spoke with my dealer and they are going to inspect throttlebodies when the bike goes back in .

I would be very interested to see what they find. Mine had a slight etched appearance on the throttle blades and slight carbon traces. Keep us posted. Thanks.

I hope to hell they fix it, as this issue is ruining what has been my love for this bike. It truly sucks to wonder whether the bike is going to stall every time I pull up to a light or intersection and it can also stall when I am edging forward. Then, it is hard to restart. I LOVE THE BIKE, however, right now she is a quirky girl.

My bike has1000k miles and is bone stock. It’s in the dealership here in NY. Please keep everyone posted on the updates. I would also like to know where these bikes are located so we can track which dealerships are aware fo the situation. It’s helpful to report it to your dealer to create a service bulletin.

By the way, this has only started after the 600 mile service. Not sure what the download was or if that effected it. But it’s driving me [email protected] nuts.

I only had one or two minor stalls prior to the 600 mile service. Since then it has been a shit show with stalling. Having the bike stall and not easily restart on a steep hill with cars behind you is hairy, especially since this is a tall bike.

Not sure if this is related, but I purchased a 950 SP (new) 3 weeks ago. Rode home from dealership without issues. Went for a ride the following morning - Started the bike and it only run on idle for 2-3 seconds and then stalled by itself. Wasn't doing anything, the bike was idling and being on the side stand. Same thing happened when I started again - only more difficult to get the bike started. In the end I managed to leave the house by constantly playing with throttle and clutch, without some throttle the bike would have stalled, no questions asked. This issue vanished when the engine became warmer. Same thing happened the following morning... Maybe even with the engine warm the revs dropped in a strange way, but difficult to say if it just felt like that as I was getting used to a twin again after years on inline fours.

Took the bike to the dealer and in the end the issue in my case was a faulty air pressure sensor that gave wrong signals to the ECU (This is as much as I can describe with my technical knowledge). Got the bike back on Thursday and felt good when riding home. Fortunately had to leave for a business trip same day and only back next weekend, so will only know then if problem really was solved or not. Just in case this helps identifying any issues. Happy that the bike was looked after by Ducati Monza, at least they seem to be genuinely interested to find out what the issue was and get quick feedback from Ducati as well...

I think every bit of info helps. The older Hyper’s were plagued with a very twitchy throttle. The effort to fix that problem may have been a bit of a stumble.

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. ECU was replaced and accused as the culprit.
Took a 50 mile ride and the way back home and tried hard to make it stall.
It felt great and I’ll keep all posted if it stalls again.
Hope this helps some folks with this issue.

I just got a call saying my bike was fixed. They told me that the throttle bodies had some sort of anti-corrosion substance on them that had dripped on to them and was making the throttle bodies stick. Ducati is apparently stating that this is an issue that can happen. The dealer said they rode it afterwards and it is working fine. We shall see. I will pick it up on Friday most likely.

I got my bike back. Interesting, as the idle was definitely about 250 rpm’s higher. I would say that it idles now at just about 1400 RPM. I always felt that Idle was too low. On the ride home, the bike nicely dropped into that idle when the clutch was pulled in. Supposedly, they cleaned some sort of goo from the throttle bodies which Ducati had told them to look for. They said that it was an anti-corrosion substance they applied on these bikes. Anyways the ride home was short, as it was cold outside and nighttime. Regardless, the bike ran very well. I’m optimistic because of the way it ran. Hopefully I get a good day that I can take it out and really test it out.

I still think my idle is too low. I wonder if that’s the fix for me.
So today my bike was a bear to start. It didn’t stall but it just would fire up. I am losing my mind with this. Really pissing me off. Maybe it IS a throttle body issue. I called my dealer. They are awesome and said to bring it back in when I’m ready. Here we go again.

The bike does seem to idle too low on mine as well. I get the occasional start into a too low idle then a stall within 30 seconds, and only once while riding and pulling in the clutch. Not chronic.

Just bought a slightly used 950sp and the prior owner said he never had a stall on the bike in the 1200 miles he owned it but on my pull in to a gas station after about 200 freeway miles it stalled.

Called my local dealer and they said there is a campaign to address a technical issue but it didn't say more than that. Hopefully I'll know more Tuesday when the service manager is in and it's for this issue.
