Side Stand error- not registering as up

My scrambler won't start because the display keeps saying the kick stand is down. This happened before and turning the bike on/off a few times and kicking the stand up and down seemed to have fixed the issue for about a week.

The problem has come back and and just doesn't register as kick stand being up.

Any ideas on what the problem could be? Hoping for a few quick things I can check myself before paying for the dealership to come out and fix it.

Thanks

It's probably the micro switch that is located on the side stand pivot mount.

Quite a few people have posted about the issues they have experienced pointing to the same thing.

At a pinch, if the switch is completely unserviceable you can short circuit the wires out to get the bike going.

Thanks for that, rider. I bought my bike used, so I need to dig into this myself. Thanks again.

Even if you bought it used it may still be under the Ducati warranty and may also be included in the recall. A Ducati service dept. can use your VIN to check. I did that last week for the one I bought used and I was given its service history and no outstanding recalls as of last week before this new one for the kickstand bolt & nut.

Thanks, Neil. I punched in the VIN at safercar.gov and it came up 0 recalls. I'll give it a little while and check again, in case they haven't had time to post a full listing of the bikes. I'll probably put in a call to the dealer any way, just to make sure.

Sarah,
I don't know if you checked again recently, but I just got my recall letter for this issue.

I got my letter a few weeks back, in the letter it asked for you to notify them if you had sold the bike already and it give them the details of the new owner so they can contact them
My bike was almost due for my Desmo service anyway so got it fixed up at the same time - I hadn't seen any issues on my bike with the side-stand but better safe than sorry.

I don't know if I'll get a letter since I bought the bike used, but it's now listed on safercar.gov. The nearest dealer in Nashville said I'm welcome to ride on down just as soon as they have the bolts in stock.

I'm pretty sure that you won't get a letter from Ducati because they have no solution to know that the bike's owner has changed. Except if the previous owner returns back to Ducati the letter he will receive, with your own coordinates...


But, any Ducati dealer can get access to the bike history and tell you if it needs a recall.


I bought my first Ducati ST2 as a used bike and my dealer told me that it needed a recall, which he performed at the first service after buying.
