Thanks Ducati 4 making my 1098 so lite, it makes it much easier to push when it won't start, when I stop for gas, or when it dies at an intersection. It gives me lots of time to reflect while I waiting for it to cool down enough to start again. Sure hope Dave and the gang can sort this out on Saturday, Ok I feel better now.

Sounds very familar to my experience, within the first 100 miles or so my 1098 died and would not restart on 2 separate occasions. I had to have DucSea pick me up both times, but Marty and the crew figured it out(Bad battery from the get go)
and had me back on the road in a blink of an eye. No problems since then...

Jkester, are you running the Termi slip ons and ECU?

Not yet, everything is stock. There was a mix up and EMS could only find 1/2 my exhaust when the bike came in, they found the other 1/2 about a week later so I'm having the full termi systym installed at Duc Sea. Saturday

Cool. With the slip ons, DNA want's the ECU's back to reflash them with a possible fix.

Jeff It sure is nice to know these guys are around just in case I travel off the bus line. Hats off to Dave and crew, again..

Hey jkester,

My Dad had a 75' Thunderbird, piss yellow, that did the very same thing. Yet it was not so "lite". The trick my old man figured was just too keep that old ford running while fueling up. That beast later doubled as a back-stop to many a wiffle ball game:happy57: ! Just thought I'd share.

Emissions charcoal cannister..................................

Take it off, then toss it in the middle of I-5 and watch it be unmercifully pummeled by the cagers.
