"Flashing Dashes" Odometer Error

Hey all,

I just wanted to get feedback from the HS forums regarding my problem.

I left on a trip a week ago, and left my HS chained up to my Yamaha for the duration. I routed the chain around the frame, next to the engine, on the left side. I got home a few days ago, go to start 'er up, and the odometer on the dash is flashing dashes "------". A poke into the manual gives a blatant "Call your dealer" which I did. Ducati Bellevue told me to unplug the battery ground and let it sit to reset. I left it like that for the rest of the day, started it up again, and the problem persisted. I grabbed my gear for the heck of it, rode around the block, the 1/4 mile to the grocery store, and back with zero issues. I pushed it towards 6 or 7K RPM in 1st seeing no limiter kick in or any other sign of issues. I haven't taken a look at the left side, not knowing what it's supposed to look like if I bumped anything, but I can take pictures tomorrow when it's light out. DB opens back up tomorrow, so I'll give them a call again for advice or a service appointment.

Before then, again, what's your take?

Check those two threads. Ducati is saying that it's a 1/1000 bike issue, but it seems to be happening more than that from what I've heard on this forum and ducati.ms

Nobody ever posts to say they haven't had a problem though.

I checked the first thread already, and I'm having 0 of those errors. The second seems to be similar to the first.

I forgot to grab pictures this morning. Phone to dealer and pictures to you at lunch.

Call Ducati roadside assistance. They were actually awesome. They scheduled the pick-up of the bike and delivered it to the dealer for me.

A late update on this...

The hyper stores your odometer reading in two places: the dash where it displays it, and the bike's "black box". When the readings in these bits don't match, the bike throws up an error code (the dashes) on the odometer. Why does this happen? I heard things from the service and sales guys like stand-up wheelies (which I don't do), excessive rear wheel spin with ABS on (which may have happened), or a pinched communication cable between the two that results in a grounding or short.

End result, it took an hour to ride there and 5 minutes once the bike was in the shop for them to hook up an external controller and pick a reading to be the correct one.

Good to know. That would have to be a lot of wheelies and rear spin. I mean, you'd think they would build in some margin of error. I do a little of both but nothing that logs significant mileage. When you have redundant instruments, you need one master and one slave that correlates with the master.

Is anybody walking their Strada for miles down the highway or melting their tires on burnouts?
