Ignition Coil issues

Hello Everyone,

I just picked up a 2013 Hypermotard sp and started researching the service requirements. During my search, I found that quite a few owners of the same bike and year, to include the Hypermotards experienced some serious issues with their oem coils, which eventually took out the dash and in some cases the ecu to include a few other anomalies.

I looked up the part number 38010145B and it seems it's the same as what I have on my 2013. I'm probably going with the Aprilia coil packs, but has anyone experienced or heard of any other models with with the oem coil packs taking out the cluster (dash) and creating havoc?

Just wondering if it only affects the 13 motards, but if yes, it seems even the newer bikes use the same exact part number.

Good info here on how to install the Aprilia coils: Installing Aprilia(Eldor) coil packs

Thanks.

Ducati did a recall that added a voltage protection device at the dash to protect it from voltage spikes. Some suggest one should be used at the ECU as well. Basically the coils are noisy (lots of coils are) but the Hyper in particular is not built to handle those transient high voltages.

I had the recall done and also had purchased the coil packs that I planned to install eventually, as a double check, but never had an issue during the ~15k miles I owned it.

Thanks kuksul; I will move forward with the Aprilia coils, gray service areas really bring out my ocd. I need to check/replace the plugs and air filter anyway as I don't have the complete service history, so might as well switch out the coils while I have the tank removed and coils out.

The service bulletin repair is free and is specifically for this problem. I'd do it, and then if you do have a problem, ducati is good with out of warranty repairs of this issue. If you don't do it, you are truly on your own.

The prior owner may have already done it - a dealer can tell you. It is a service bulletin, not a recall, so the online recall function of the website will not give you accurate info..

Extremely helpful!

Thank you and I'll post an update.

I called the dealer and it looks like there are a total of 4 campaigns (SB's) on my 2013 hypermotard:

*Software update (ouch, since it will override the current fuel curve for the SC exhaust).
*Dust cover (not sure exactly what this is yet...).
*Throttle inspection (replacement if necessary).
* and finally the CAN protector filter, we do know this one.

Thank you all for helping me steer toward the dealer

It's California Speed Sports in Livermore, I've dealt with them before, and they have been great so far.

Some of those may have already been done, but the Throttle Control Unit has to be checked for each bike as they have to read the ID number off the specific part on your bike. A VIN check should determine the other repairs/updates.
