Yup, 939. What happened is that last Sunday, my fuel gauge is half empty which is expected, so I had it fill all the way up then rode home. I haven't used the bike then since it is raining here in PH. So yesterday, I started the bike while parked at the garage, everything is working fine. I left the bike running for about 2mins as I watered the plants, When I came back to shut down the bike, I noticed that the fuel gauge is flashing empty. I shutdown and started the bike, same issue.
I called the dealer and consulted them about it, they've told me that it is about the fuel level sensor, it needs to be replaced. They've also told me that it is a common problem for Ducati models that has fuel level sensor. They've assured me that I can still use the bike and it won't have any problem, it's just that the fuel gauge on the display will just keep on flashing and I just need to get to used to it. They've also told me that other Ducatisti who had the same issue are just ignoring it.
According to the dealer, one of the cause of the issue is that when the bike is not being used regularly and the fuel is getting stock in the fuel tank. I am not sure if this has an effect or impact on the fuel level sensor. Let me know your thoughts on this.
But what I did observed is that the issue will only occurred when the engine is hot. In-addition, based on my research and reading over the internet, it is indeed common on the Ducati bikes that has fuel level sensor and there are also some cases that even if they had the fuel level sensor replaced, time will come that issue will happen again. So I am not sure if I will had it replace or will just get used to the flashing fuel gauge on the display.
