Q Why can’t I un­leash the beast when I want Mon­ster fun?

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Mcn garage -

My 2010 Du­cati 1100 Mon­ster is great for gassing past clumps of cars where I live in Lon­don. But when I stretched its legs with a run to Bath re­cently I no­ticed that the en­gine seemed to be hold­ing back slightly above 7000rpm and wouldn’t pull up to the red­line in the higher gears. What’s wrong? Harry Crack­nell, Lon­don

An­swered by Richard Llewellin, Louigi Moto The symp­toms you’re de­scrib­ing are typ­i­cal for a par­tially blocked fuel fil­ter re­strict­ing fuel flow at higher revs. The fil­ter has a two-year life and is lo­cated in the fuel tank it­self. It’s a 30-minute job to re­place and I’m sure fit­ting a new one will trans­form your bike’s per­for­mance.
