FWIW here is an old scope shot I got just connecting to the battery a few months ago. Ground clip to the (-) and probe to the (+). I know it's not the best way to do it, but I could kinda see what is going on.

This is at idle in AC coupling. You can see the steady state voltage varying around +/- 0.2V which I consider pretty good. But then you can see some random transient pulses spiking to "infinity".


When zooming out to capture only this pulse, it looked like this. A spike to about 7V, so the total would be ~14.4V + 7V = ~21V.


The bike should be designed to handle dirty voltages for various types of events. The coils that fail must be exceeding this threshhold, OR the transient voltage protection components in the dash are no good.

ukphotoguy, are you an EE? Do you know if its possible to simply add something across the battery (or elsewhere?) to absorb these things and protect the whole bike?

i have just been to my local ducati dealer to price up the coils so they could be replaced at the demo service.. they asked why i was looking to replace them so i explained the reasons here. They said they hadn't had any problems but looked on their ducati site... low and behold there is a recall just out for my 2013 hyper for a wire that goes into the system to stop the dashboard lighting unlike an xmas tree with warnings.
So hopefully this may be the cure to the problems encountered with the electrics system meltdown

great news, going to ring my dealer to see if my bike is affected and have the recall work carried out if required.
People who have had to pay to have their bikes fixed due to this problem should be reimbursed imo

Wonderful news. I'll check my VIN # when I get home today and see if it's included. I know my VIN ends in 000655, so it's probably one of the earlier affected bikes.

Get us more details about this recall if you can. My VIN also shows that there are no active recalls on the bike.

My bike is one of the earliest 2013 ones which are the ones that seem to have been having the problems according to the posts on here. Just remember though it is probably best to check with Ducati ,as the year a bike is registered for the road is not necessarily the year the bike was manufactured.

Monkey, have you put your VIN No. into the link I posted? If you could please and post back what it says, I'd like some piece of mind that mine is defiantly not an affected bike.

Cheers
