I have made silencers or just gutted collector boxes and always take the bike up to the rolling road to check the fuelling just in-case I lean it out too much. Could be £100 well spent. Never yet have they been too lean after modifying but a standard Bandit 1200 was too lean and I had to lift the needles slightly to en-rich it a wee bit mid throttle.I fitted mine myself last week purely because I got it cheaper than dealer price. I took the key in on service but they couldn't upload because their machine had corrupt files on it not my key and they had to wait until Ducati could send them new data files even to get rid of my service icon on dash. It ran ok but was lean and made some sweet popping noises which was fine by me. They also said it will be fine and so don't worry.
I had very loud Termis on my monster s4 without the correct ECU and was good for years.
If it says RACE, then you have the upmap installed. And yes you'll get lots of fantastic popping and less fantastic occasional backfires (and yes with blipping). The popping is a lot less if you install the dB killer (just cut/grind out the center post to get rid of the whistle). I still can get backfires with a blip, but they are much quieter with the dB killer installed.I have a low mount Termi and I was wondering. Could the dealer have installed the Map key without DSS?
Why I ask is that I do have RACE come up on the dash but I do still get a lot of popping and occasionally a back fire. Backfire mainly if I am blipping the throttle on down shifting which I would have thought was extra fuel in exhaust rather than lean. Anyway are these Map key plug and play or need a DSS to work at all? I am just not confident with the work the dealer does... Maybe I need to visit them to find out what they did...
Unfortunately dealers do not appear to be able to do this (i asked when they did mine). The reason is that the dealer requires a unique code for each map that can only be upliaded to One Scrambler at any given time. Termignoni is probably keeping tabs on the keys which makes sense from their POV.Can the dealers get this 'RACE' map even if you don't have the aftermarket exhaust? Does Ducati provide it for customers at a cost if they simply want it put on their bike because they sawed off a piece of fence post for a muffler and entered themselves into an AMA dirt track race?
