Bike keeps cutting out when downshifting!

Had this problem over the past week or so, I have a 899 that has done 350 miles and I'm currently running her in. When Im downshifting coming up to a junction or roundabout the bike cuts out in 2nd or 1st gear, has anyone else had this problem!! It starts back up fine, just so annoying now!!! is this common when running in the bike?

thanks barney

Its never happened with mine, take your bike to your dealer and they should sort it for you.

I had this problem with my diavel. Called the dealer and they told me bad fuel and told me 2 fill up the tank with shell super unleaded . The bike was fine after about 30 miles.

I had the same problem and currently the dealer still figuring out the problem. Their diagnostics are probably spark plugs and the air temperature sensors. I will keep inform you guys with updates...

Hi Guys,

I found this forum post after searching on Google for 1199 Cut out problems.

I found 2 posts one on the 1199 forum and this here on the 899 forum.

My bike has done this 4 times in the last month, always when up to temperature (Not on a short run) and mostly 3rd to 2nd in my instance when using the clutch when downshifting.

It is back with my local Ducati dealer Causeway in Perth Australia for diagnosis.

My bike is 1199 Superleggera number 366 any feedback you have on what your problems were diagnosed as really appreciated.

I will also PM the 2 guys above who had similar issues.

I don't have an answer for you, but I can say that I have done 3200 kms on my 899 and never had the issue once until yesterday. I had just left from my home after letting the bike warmup to over 40 degrees as I always do, rode about 1km and whilst approaching a roundabout the bike just randomly turns off whilst braking and downshifting. Engine temp was probably about 55 degrees celcius by this time. The oil light was on so I immediately checked the oil level and all was fine. I started the bike back up and all was good. Let it idle for a while while I checked everything and took it easy for the next few kms. No issues at all! Did a 100km ride after that and the issue never reoccurred. Strange!!

If anyone knows what causes this sort of thing I'd be interested to know too.

hmmm. I think it could electrical or fuel..

what fuel do you guys use? I think the bike requires no more than 89 octane...I think. But of course with any high performance engine, you should put in the highest available (93 in my area)
also, have you checked your batter connections? make sure they're tight... I had a similar issue with my car when my batter kill switch in my trunk was knocked by a 6 pack of beer I had in there... Car was running fine, but would die on downshift and then come back on.... it's just a thought

Thanks. Yes, I always use 98 octane fuel which is the highest fuel available here at service stations.

I'll check the battery connections to see if that may have been the issue. Thanks.
