Just got a text that the bike is ready for collection - no diagnosis report or explanation. Let's hold thumbs

I was following someone on FB that had the same problem and this was his fix below. My bike will be going to service tomorrow for the same issue and if i get the run around (cant replicate blah blah), im going to install a QS from a super sport as the part# are the same but supersport end with a B and the V4 end with a C. I was able to locate a use one off ebay for 100.




"Well ducati took the bike and ran some dyno tests but could not replicate the issue, at the same time ducati released an ecu update that included a dqs update which they did as well as just replacing the qs itself. I rode the bike some more and still had qs lockout on upshift but this time it felt mechanical not like before where it felt more like a drunk ecu.
Again back to ducati.. Again they replaced the quikshifter but this time used an older batch qs from I think a supersport model (runs the same qs).
Bike now preforms smooth as a whistle with zero issues and trust me when I say I put her to the test!
Maybe a faulty batch of quickshifters?? Seems the older batch qs works no worries."

Some feedback guys.

Ducati replaced my DQS - They say diagnosis showed "DQS circuit open/close" error and they just replaced it. No questions. Taking it out this weekend. Wooop!!!

This is worrying however!

The first thing to look at is going to be the him joint that attaches to the shift lever, about half of the quick shifter issues we have seen has been from there being too much loctite applied at the factory (it gets into the heim joint and acts as a sleeve retainer)and it causes the shift lever to bind in the direction of the last shift. There is an issue and Ducati is working diligently to remedy it. The part numbers for the Supersport QS and the V4 QS are different, but are essentially the same part, I have not tried this repair yet, but will this week and I'll report back here for everyone.

I'm not sure how diligently they're working on the issue. Across three Panigales ranging from 2012 to now, I've required FIVE new quick shifters. It's a pressure switch, not a space shuttle. I'm guessing it's not bad enough for business to actually find someone to make these things out of metal and up to higher quality standards. I dissected one that the plastic housing deformed on my 899 and it's absolute trash compared to aftermarket units I've added to other bikes. As soon as I find a good aftermarket switch that I can make work with my V4, that OEM piece of crap is gone. I've been waiting on Ducati for six years to address these things, I'm not holding my breath at this point.

Feedback: Got the bike back and took it out for a spin. Seems fine, but I'll only really know once I take it through its paces on the track.

Interestingly though, the part number of the replacement QS is different than the one that was originally fitted on the bike - although it is still V4. Perhaps Ducati has attempted to fix the issue.

I'm facing the same issue now after 1700 km. Out of interest can you share the part number of the replacement QS please?
