Better check with MCC or another Ducati dealer. Their key situation is funky, and you may need more than a gauge cluster to get it going.

It is far better to be thought of as a smartass than an dumbass. And as American Humorist Robert Benchley (1889-1945) noted, "no matter how well-intended, any reply to a dumbass question will inevitably appear smartassed". - Bob Hall (creator of the Miata)

Every dealer will tell you that you need to spend about $2000 to repair the problem . In reality , you can have the ECU modded so that the emobilizer is de-activated . Its all in the ECU .

now this emobilizer is that something that is easy to do or does it need computers to do it? And in that case is it something most shops do. And how much less than 2000 would it be supposing the cluster is the only problem

the immobilizer sensor for the key is a separate issue, it's embedded in the plastic shroud that goes around the key ignition - not the gauge cluster. It definitely won't run without the cluster either though - ECU needs to be able to 'talk' to the gauge cluster.

a new (uncoded) set of gauges would be all he needs.

a brand new set of gauges will work. a used set from a different red-key bike will not, and would need the ECU modded.

not sure how much gauges cost new from Ducati, but I'm sure it's not cheap. might be able to buy them direct from Magnetti Marrelli?

another solution might be an ECU and gauges from before 02 or after 07?

A new set of gauges wont be enough . It all needs to be replaced together . At least thats what I was told by dealers . But the Stanimal dont play that . I had a used cluster and then just sent out the ECU to get modded. Once the ECU is modded , you never have to deal with the red key or anything else , plus a performance tune can be added .

Good luck.

That bike needs more than some electronics. After his asking price and repairing everything, you could just buy someone else's used but not trashed Monster.

That one would probably be nice to part out at the right price.

Sad to see it all messed up though.

I know of at least a couple people that replaced the gauge cluster with a new one, and everything worked fine. most dealers don't understand how that system really works, or they're just more than happy to sell you a new set of everything. I got the same story when I wrecked my MTS a messed up the gauge cluster and a couple of the sensors.
