I am new to the Ducati world/v twins and am having some issues.

2001 748s 5000 miles. friday filled up with 93 octane ran around for about 60 miles and went into work, came out bike will not idle.....adjusted the idle runs around 2 grand at idle as soon as I back off the idle adjust it dies..

Got home drained fuel and replaced, replaced plugs pretty black.

started the bike up same thing, ran it around the block died everytime I let off the throttle.

once again got home drained fuel and replacedwith 89 with a lucas injector cleaner, replaced plugs again pretty black( running rich)

started up and it idles very low after engine warms up it will not idle. took it around the block the bike sputters, surges and dies.

This was a warm day around 80 deg F, I am still wondering why it is running so terribly after above 200 on local gage. Also this may have nothing to do with it but there is a hesitation as if the power is shut off completly to the bike, it has shut me down on the freeway once before. Also every now and again the bike will not allow me to start it even if the kick stand is up.
