1199 shutting off still

hello,
So I have had the bike about 3 weeks now. It shut off on me about 4 times during the break in and has had a few times where is was very difficult to start. Based on what I have read here and other places, when it went in for the initial service today that was completed and had a set of Termi slip ons with the up-map installed (sounds great) and had the charcoal canister removed.... On the way home the bike shut off once waiting at a light and once coming down an off ramp almost at a stop.....

The dealer is closed for the day but I will call them in the morning... Anyone have any ideas? This is totally not acceptable as far as I am concerned and almost caused someone to run into my back tire tonight....

thanks for any suggestions....

They weren't able to fix it last night?

Not sure what is going on with Ducati...

I just posted a pic on the mechanical forum showing where the chain is hitting my swing arm... Agree completely with this stuff being not acceptable.

Hope they figure it out soon.

I reckon it has to do with fuel quality or specifically octane quality. Forum member AntiHero previously mentioned this as a possibility. I have noticed that all my Ducati's have a tendency to cut out on what appeared to be a very random basis. I experimented with different fuel types and found cut-offs happened the most when I mixed fuel from different vendors.

The one fuel that I had minimal if any cut-off was with Shell.

Hey R, i wanted to share in case you have not already submitted:

(i just did for the swing arm rubbing)

Reporting of safety defects
If you believe your vehicle has a defect that could
cause a crash or cause injury or death, you should
immediately inform the National Highway Traffic
Safety Administration (NHTSA), in addition to
notifying Ducati North America, 10443 Bandley Drive
Cupertino, California, 95014, Tel: 001.408.253.0499,
Fax: 001.408.253.4099. If NHTSA receives similar
complaints, it may open an investigation, and if it
finds that a safety defect exists in a group of vehicles,
it may order a recall and remedy campaign. However,
NHTSA cannot become involved in individual
problems between you, your dealer, or Ducati North
America. To contact NHTSA, you may either call the
Auto Safety Hotline toll-free at 1-800-424-9393 (or
366-0123 in Washington, D.C. area) or write to:
NHTSA, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE W43-488,
Washington, D.C. 20590. You can also obtain other
information about motor vehicle safety from the
Hotline.
Thanks from Rmeeks

Vehicle shutting unexpectedly is a safety defect, no doubt. It happens on all kinds of cars and is often treated as a minor problem-downplayed, but common sense knows its an accident waiting to happen. For cars, it can affect steering(no more power assist), interruption of traffic flow to a standstill, and overall loss of control to the vehicle. I am surprised these types of issues are not taken more seriously although my bike has no such issue at all. The only time is shutdown on me is when I put into gear with out raising the stand, in which case I love this failsafe feature.
