2006 sport 1000. Started bike for first ride of the year and ran bad. Seems to be running on 1 cylinder. Not much fuel in it. Rode about 27 miles. Second cylinder would I do in sporadically. After 10-15 miles seemed to start running properly. By the end of 27 miles was running well. Rode back home 27 miles and ran pretty well. Rode a couple days later, short 5-6 mile ride both ways and it ran good. A week later fire it up and it's idling/warming up fine. After a couple minutes one cylinder drops out and won't come back without rpms being 4500-5000 or better. Everytime the rpms drop below 4500 runs on one cylinder and backfires. Can barely take off from a stop. Several years ago still under factory warranty she started running really bad, eating fuel, no power. They replaced the Ducati racing ecu and it was cured. Wondering my if I have another bad ecu. It has a full tank of fresh premium by the way so it's not old gas
Full termi single muffler, Ducati racing ecu, open airbox.
Any help would be appreciated

How old are the spark plugs and what do they look like?

Have you replaced the stock R/R unit yet? When they're near failure they can mess with your running before they totally give up. (Or burn up your bike...:surprise:)

When my bike was firing on 1 and eating fuel, I had to clean and reset the TPS/throttle checked the valves and replaced the plugs
