  • New Scrambler backfires and Stalls

    Did anyone have trouble with their Scrambler backfiring and stalling? I have 300 km's on mine and it has done it enough that I'm back to the dealers today. Seems to be a common issue in the states.

      Nup, never had that issue.

      But mine came with termi pipe and the related remap already installed.

          Seems normal for that particular brand of bikes

          Think you got the odd abnormal Ducati with no issues bud, standby for the recall notice
          Best I can do to describe the issue is this.
          Normally it goes BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR, shift, BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

          But now it's a bit more like this
          BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR-r-r-r-r-r-r-r-r-r-r-r-r-R-R-r-r-r-r-r-, shift

            You know if you have issues like that you can get the bike picked up by your roadside assistance package on new bikes?

              There's something I've never used in 10 years of riding Ducatis.

              But the joke about reliability is still fucking hilarious. Keep up the good work.

                Not getting air or fuel or too much of either at the wrong time. Either way, with 300km on the clock it's the dealer's problem. It's not a highly tunes engine so it'll be an easy fix I'd wager.

                  Took it the dealer, No error messages on the computer, so as far as they're concerned it doesn't happen.
                  Got their attention when I mentioned it has cut out on the freeway a few times.

                  Tech's solution. Reset the computer and tell me to rev it harder.
                  He reckons he has reset the throttle sensor. It behaved itself on the way back to work.
                  Real test will be when I go home after it has been sitting for a couple of hours and it's cold.

                  EFI. The firestorm with carbies is running better (than a brand new Ducati with EFI) and she can be a moody bitch when it's cold.

                      They also sell Harleys and are close to Potato's workshop. In the interests of not naming names..

                        I suspected as much from the reaction you described.

                        Hope it gets sorted.

                          Have a look at the throttle air bleed screw and check if there at the right position for both cyclinders.

                            To be fair, that's the same reaction I've had from a wide range of repairers (warranty and service) for Renaults, Aprilias and Peugeots.

                            What would you suggest as a course of action for a repairer in that situation?
