Yeh can't say you can blame Nitrouz for trying to replicate the problem, if something happens you WANT to know what the heck the problem is. Done that a couple times with my 1299 with what i'd call minor issues. If you don't try and figure out what the problem is do you actually think a dealership will bother trying to figure the problem out for you? They tend to just ride it around the block and say it's fine.

Of course. Replicating the problem is one thing, and in the situation with his friend when it happened suddenly and all at once, sure, it was a life threatening situation. However, claiming it's life threatening and being upset with Ducati when you're trying to replicate it just doesn't make sense to me. The bottom line is, if you have an issue with a system that's option, you either take it easy until you find out what the problem is (IE: avoid corners) or you turn it off and let the dealer take care of it all. However, you don't go trying to replicate the problem while bombing it in the twisties, which is when it becomes a truly dangerous issue.

Nitrouz was specifically saying it was dangerous because what if it happened during a turn. Logical. However, when you tack on the fact that he was trying to replicate an issue, if it happened during a turn then it's his own damn fault. He would be putting himself in danger at that point.

Also, do people just not pay attention to what's happening with their bike? Prior to the recall, my bike had one of those moments where it started chugging and surging while I was in a parking lot. Could have launched me into a car... theoretically. However, the second I noticed the bike doing something I was not telling it to do, I pulled in the clutch and found somewhere to stop. How the fuck are people going down the road, noticing the bike doing crazy shit, and just continuing along waiting to see if it resolves itself? If your bike is acting up for 10-15 seconds before doing something that bucks you off, you're kinda an idiot for not pulling in that clutch sometime before then.

I don't get it man. I guess it's because I'm military and we are all forced to take basic and advanced MSF courses where stuff like that is taught to us. I can't imagine my bike surging the throttle or starting to stutter and just going, "Huh, that's kinda weird, I'm just gonna wait and see what happens."

This will be my third and hopefully 3 times' a charm.
Hi Nitrouz, is it working ok now?

Yes the new quickshifter is in and it's back to normal. But who knows for how long this time. Hopefully it's just a bad initial batch of quickshifters.

But now the rear wheel is clicking. Sounds like it's from the hub. Have to bring it in again next week. Seems like most of my mileage is from riding to and from the dealer. Lol

That's interesting about the clicking from the rear wheel.

I have pulled away from junctions thinking something is catching the spokes in the wheels but then stops, thought I was imagining it.

Be interested to see what it is causing it.

Iíve been having the same issue, bike runs good for about 6miles or so then the Qs shuts off a few times I was pulling away from a stop light and it momentarily killed power then came back on and almost bucked me off. I took it back to the dealer twice for this and itís currently there now, they have done several master resets of the Ecu and had the Qs relearn. Friday they pulled a Qs off another bike in the showroom, now itís working on upshifts but not downshifting at all. They informed me on Saturday that Ducati issued another software update to address the Qs system on Friday. My bike also would flash the mode it wouldnít set when ever the Qs was acting up so hopefully they figure this out soon because I only have 240 miles on my bike and itís been in the shop since I got it pretty much

Normally you are suppose to get paid for being a Beta tester!

Hopefully you discover all the loose ends before they are ready for commercial release, wait a minute...they already did. WTF!

Be careful man. Turn off DQS until this is sorted.

Question for you guys: Did anyone with the QS issue have their TC/ABS light come on when the power was getting cut? Just yesterday I was at about 90% throttle in 1st going on to the highway at a fairly spirited speed. The front wheel was off the ground (as it does when you give it the beans in first) and then the damn thing cut to what seemed like 0% throttle, front smashed down, smashed my balls on the gas tank, etc. I hadn't had a chance to roll off the throttle given the major WTF moment and it immediately surged back to full throttle again (about 2 seconds after cutting out). One thing I did notice was the amber TC/ABS light flashing when this happened.

I was riding with warm tires on scorching hot smooth asphalt, off the brakes, not cornering, lots of traction - no reason for any type of interdiction to be happening - so the TC light flashing was a bit of a mystery.

Is this consistent with what those of you that have had the QS issues experienced? I left mine on but turned around and rode back home at a very relaxed pace. Didn't notice any issues other than the one occurrence and no weird chugging before or after. Other than that one occurrence the QS has been great, but now I'm scared to ride this thing hard and need to figure out what to tell the dealership. If anyone can confirm / deny that this is similar to what they went through that'd be great. Might be something else but I can't see what other system would completely chop the throttle like that for such an extended period of time.
