2009 Monster 1100
I just picked up a 2009 Monster 1100. Only 6000 miles. Has a dubious service record, so I have done all the usual, belt changes, oil change, new tires, etc. As far as I know engine is stock except for Arrow slip-ons. It has a cold starting issue. Will not start unless I give it a bit of throttle when cranking, and about half of the time won't start at all. When the engine gets warmed up it starts fine. I have owned numerous Jap bikes, but this is my first Ducati and I don't have a clue what it's problem is. Anybody got any suggestions where to start with diagnosing this problem? Nearest Ducati dealer to me is 3 hours. Help!
