Hello guys,
I've a 959 and i have only 500km.
I have noticed that after putting the first gear, if I pull the clutch and release it the engine revs go up to about 2000 revs and go down.
I tried with all maps, wet race qnd sport, with ebc 1 and off but is the same.
Is this normal?

Mine does that. Pull in the clutch when coming to a stop and the revs go up briefly then settle back down to normal idle.

Exactly when I'm going to a stop and pulling the clutch to climb the gears the revs go up itself and then come down. It seems strange, is it possible that is an electronic problem?

I'd guess it's normal. Every car I've owned with a manual transmission does the same thing.

If I had to throw a hypothesis out there. You engine has a load on it, that load is countered by fuel and explosions. When you pull in the clutch the load is removed. Suddenly your engine can spin more quickly with less resistance and it takes a second for the ecu to adapt and cut fuel to the engine.

What year 959? There was a small sample of users on here that posted about their '16 959s just dying when coming to a stop and pulling in the clutch. Potentially there's an update to the map to prevent that.


My '16 959 has never done that, but to add on to what @Sdg24 said, every manual transmission car I've driven has only done what you are describing when the engine is cold. What you're describing sounds like heightened idle engine speed due to the ECT Idle map - colder engine temps have higher idles to help warm up quicker. Additionally, idle timing correction isn't exactly real time, so first there's the overshoot of the target idle, then the corrections come in which make it drop.


For both of you, is this happening at any temp (both air and ECT)?

this is normal, when coming to a stop while engine braking and pull the clutch in the ECM is going to increase the revs to most likely 2kish and the settle down slightly below this (this is most apparent when cold like @djshrug said)

I have also experienced my 2017 dying when pulling in the clutch while engine braking when it is COLD. Solution I have found is to A) let it warm up for an extra minute B) dont engine brake down below 2500 RPM until the bike has come up to temp.

How many post for public a video?

This has already been answer for you on the 1299 Forum. It a normal ducati thing to do with the micro switch on clutch upper the revs

Yeah if I'm not mistaken it can be caused by dodgy clutch switches. It's a fairly common thing, if your bike is still in warranty take it back to the dealer, and if they're not arseholes they should get it fixed for you free of charge
