What is your rev limit?

Hey all

Just got mine back from the shop again. I'm not convinced its fixed. One of the things I am confused about is my bike is rev limiting at around 8250-8500. My manual says 10,500.

its a 13 821 strada. What does yours go too? The tech says they limit right where mine is, but I'm not convinced.

rev limit is 10500.

your bike seems to have some problem. when bike thinks its in neutral or thinks clutch is engaged, it limits revs earlier.
do you have aftermarket clutch lever ?

hello again Ferdi. I did in fact put a Pazzo clutch lever on. So I just went out and swapped it back and it still does it.

Thing is though, when I put the pazzo on, the bike wasnt recognizing the clutch being pulled in. So I pulled it apart and noticed that the little button on the switch was stuck in. So I used a pin and a little wd40 to unseat it and put it back into place which fixed my inability to start the bike. I'm wondering if the switch broke.

yeah so I was reading about this in another thread from ducati.ms and someone suggested trying to start the bike while its in gear without the clutch engaged. guess what happens? it jumps across my garage. Guess I broke the switch? If I jumper it as people have suggested on other forums I think it will trick the bike into thinking the clutch is engaged which will again keep my rev limit down.

Hope im right. I called ducati shop and they think I'm nuts. Which is partially true

Sounds like you should adjust your clutch - if the bike moves its engaged.

Some bikes have adjustable rev limits - check the manual carefully and see if this one does. Might be buried in the menu.

My preferred clutch play setting caused a slight engagement when clutch was engaged. I could feel it when starting (slight tug in the chain) or when idling with clutch engaged. It never affected my rev limit, however. Just trouble finding neutral when cold. I also have an aftermarket lever set.

Others on this site have Pazzo levers and didn't have that issue. You must have gotten a bum set that didn't allow travel of the plunger.

If the switch were operating properly, when the lever is disengaged but the bike is in gear, it shouldn't turn over, right? The micro switch is malfunctioning.

When I first swapped in the Pazzo levers I had the opposite problem of this. The bike wouldn't turn over at all. So I pulled out the switch, used a pin and wd40 to get the little button to move freely again. Apparently it's stuck but in the opposite position now.

Does the hyperstrada have an adjustable rev limit? I can find no mention of that anywhere in the manual or online. If it does I would love to know where in the menu!

I have not pulled it out yet, but my theory is that my micro switch is stuck engaged. The little button is not popping back out again, basically. So according to the bikes electronics the clutch is always engaged.

I'm not sold on this yet. But when I swapped in the Ducati lever and turned the bike over with a disengaged clutch, I knew something was wrong. Regardless of if it fixes the rev limit, it's still malfunctioning. The only connection to rev limit that I can find online is in forums. Nothing in the manuals anywhere and the Ducati tech says I'm wrong. I have found numerous other examples of people with the same problem on forums though and that switch or the one it connects to on the back right side of the motor seem to be mentioned every time.

It's worth a shot. If I can get it to work even just for a few minutes I can test the rev limit with a quick shot out of my driveway. Headed out to try in a few!

Well, the switch seems totally fine. Now I'm once again lost. Unless the switch is malfunctioning internally...

Where else would the bike be tricked into thinking the clutch is engaged? I even loosened the clutch cable as far as I could to make sure it wasn't slightly engaged. Changed nothing, it'll still try to start in gear
