Slow speed low Rpm accelerating/jumping issue
Hey guys & gals new to the forum but I wanted to post about a issue or two I've been having with my 899Panigale.

I bought the bike almost two months ago, within the first week or so I noticed that the bike at random times would fire but would not start(which I've read on here as a charcoal canister issue) or it would start then stall out.
Took bike to dealer they said ride it around like that since there was no fix at the time.
As I rode more the bike would now at very slow speeds cruising 5-15mph while hand off throttle around 2k/2.5k rpm it would jerk and accelerate on it's own up to approximately 5k/5.5k rpm causing my reaction of pulling in the break rapidly. For example: I just started my bike and slowly accelerate to a comfortable 10mph and lay my hand off throttle while exiting a closed off garage structure it'll stall out and fire back up accelerating from 2-5 rpm rapidly. It's easy to catch the bike when it does this on a straightaway but when it does this while I'm steering to turn the bike it causes me to have to catch the bike from dropping on one side because I pull in the breaks and all the weight of the bike is put on one leg to catch once It comes to a rapid stop after this rapid acceleration(I've dropped the bike now due to this with a very minor scratch and gear peg snapping off) ... I don't know if I explained the issue correct but I was wondering if anyone has had any similar problems? Took it to dealer and after the 4th time of taking it they called and said that the starting issue is fixed but they tried to replicate the rpm issue after fixing the starting problem and it didn't replicate all week for them. They say they don't know what can be causing this rapid drop then accelerating issue I am having. Could fixing the start/stall issue also have fixed this rpm jump issue?

And one other thing. I've noticed at faster speeds once I lay off the throttle the bike would keep going as if I still haven't laid off the throttle. Any suggestions guys?

Have you read this thread? Your last point is the biggest worry. :eek:

Panigale 899. WARNING. Throttle sticking!
Thank you I just read it and must say the two differences I have seen on dash is it reading N instead of 3/4 and it going into N while gearing up from 3-4. I just thought the gear selector musta got stuck between gears so I pull in clutch and either gear up or down depending how fast I'm going until it reads proper gear. And the two differences have happened separately from one another... But it sounds very similar to the acceleration problem the guys in the other thread mentioned when laying off throttle...

Knock on wood I haven't had any throttle issues in 1,300 miles now :eek: My bike is butter smooth now it's about fully broken in. Even the transmission feels better now.

I have the latest software updates as of Jan 18th. It would be nice if any forums members with knowledge of when updates come out, start a sticky and let us know...

Sounds like a calibration issue with the TPS :confused:

Firstly welcome to the forum. I had a problem with the gear indication and engine warning light, but not the throttle sticking. I've been into the dealers with it and they performed a reset or something, touch wood, I've not had any problems since, but they're still going to change the gear position sensor at 1st service. I did mention the thread where reports of throttles sticking were experienced, they'd not heard of this problem.

The throttle sticking would be a major safety concern for Ducati, and I'm sure if they identify a problem with the 899 we'll all be getting a recall for a fix, but we need to make sure every incident is reported back to them as early as possible so they can get an idea of the scale of the problem, if only one or two incidents are reported nothing will get done. Those of us of a certain age may recall the problems with the front end on the Suzuki TL1000S which ultimately claimed the life of a couple of owners, a recall was issued and stealing dampers were retro fitted to all bikes!! The 899 is still a new model, differing in a number of ways from the 1199, so may have faults/problems not previously coming to light with the 1199, so we need to feed everything back at an early stage.

Hope you get it sorted and don't have any more scares on the bike.

What I find strange is that at least 3 different UK dealers now state, independently that they haven't heard of the throttle sticking issues.
Ducati must know as surely the dealers report back to the factory. Why doesnt this info get fed back to the dealers about this potential problem?
This seems irresponsible and dangerous.:mad:

There's been a few 1199 and 899 owners who have reported the same thing. Google this topic and you'll find those threads in some of the other Ducati forums.

Regardless of whether or not a dealer has herd of this issue or not, it is worth it to have it checked out—I believe that at least one 1199 owner has something replaced—sorry, I'm not much help.

Thank you for the warm welcome since I've gotten bike back it's been pretty smooth for the most part but I have still had a hiccup here and there with other small problems such as the bike not going into neutral or other small things here and there but those small things do add up and irritate after sometime but problems only seem to happen with mine in Race mode the sport mode is smooth and haven't been in wet mode yet. I had a recording chip attached to bike while it double stalled on acceleration one after another so now ducati should have a pretty good idea that there's a problem that seems to happen...

Keep us updated, be interested to see what they come up with if anything. Mine has seemed fine since they reset it, no problems and got a 108 mile ride in on Sunday and never missed a beat. In for 1st service next Monday, so looking forward to opening up a bit more once done.
