Till the morning comes, it'll do you fine.
Till the morning comes, like a highway sign,
Showing you the way, leaving no doubt,
Of the way on in or the way back out.

It did what Ducatis do- complete catastrophic mid-ride failure.

Thanks Andrew!

Well, the Duc is sitting the garage as a mystery.  We have spark...we have fuel...it's not the injectors...the oil looks fine and doesn't smell...I tested an ECU swap and it's not that either.  There are no issues with air leakage around the throttle body boots and there are no mechanical sounds out of place.  It's almost behaving as if the spark timing is off - as if it's sparking when there's no fuel in the cylinder.  Best guess at the moment is that there is a sensor driven near the timing belt that came loose...but I haven't gotten there yet. 

/shrug.  Time is on my side at this point.  I filed it as a non-operator with the DMV and took it off insurance.  I'll keep digging on it slowly but surely.  I figure I'll check the belts next and maybe something around the timing. 

Total mystery. 
IBA #:  20880
Damn.  Was that really a good idea?

TIme to take the T-belt covers off, the code you had is related to engine timing.  But then time is on your side, relax slow and simple
