Hi all, An FYI that may save Ducati owners (and possibly others) a lot of time (and/or money) one day… Spent the last 2 months (on and off) trying to get to the bottom of a fuel pump problem. Out of nowhere, the bike would cut out, and then the fuel pump wouldn't prime on start-up. Started moving around some wiring near the fuel pump relay and that seemed to work - but only sometimes. Sometimes it would work for 400km, sometimes for 5km. Checked the relay, it was fine. Sometimes these can accumulate some gunk and cause the connection to be less than reliable. Replaced it anyway (relays are dirt cheap). Over time the problem got worse and bike would cut out more often, but if you left it for a while, came back later that day, it would often prime and start straight back up… So this was driving me crazy as I’d play with something, that would seem to fix it… take it for a ride and BAM… cuts out. Relays were fine, wiring in the wiring harness (behind the battery etc) was all in-tact and looking good, fuel was clean, but I couldn’t locate the problem. So one time when the fuel pump wouldn’t prime, immediately connected a multimeter to the connection just before the fuel pump and it was still jumping up to 12.x volts for the ~2sec after start-up. So now I knew it was in the pump/wiring to the pump. Long story short, after eliminating everything else including the pump itself, through trial and error (a lot of test rides that ended up with me on the side of the road ) managed to trace it back to the wiring that leads into the fuel pump. Turns out this is a common problem with Ducati’s (at least monster and the 749/999 series which is what this kit is for) that the wiring leading into the fuel pump comes loose INSIDE the epoxy that is meant to hold it in place – OR the epoxy just gets eaten away completely and the wiring comes loose --> no power to pump --> no fuel to engine --> no smile on Ducati rider's face. California Cycleworks ( http://ca-cycleworks.com/products/fuel-carbs/fwireslg ) has manufactured their own replacement for fuel pump wiring. Their wiring kit which is much better than the original and seems to have solved the problem for me, and a lot of other Ducati owners throughout USA and Aus alike for all models including the Hypermotard, Streetfighter, all 1098 family Superbikes 1198/1098/848, new Monsters 1100/796/696 etc. If you take this problem to a mechanic etc, word is that they are instructed to replace THE ENTIRE PUMP ASSEMBLY, and I've heard this going for anywhere from $400-900 depending on who’s installing it. The CaCycleworks kits are $100-150 to your door and you get to have some fun installing it too! Tricky thing is that you won’t usually be able to see the loose wire. Mine was still held in place by the epoxy and seemed ok, but the connection was broken/loose inside. So after a bit of fiddling around with the fuel pump, as you have to dismantle the entire thing to install the new wiring, it’s pretty easy to do yourself if you’re relatively handy with the tools. Food for thought.
