    Default Flash the ecu or set up a race ecu

    I have a small carbon after- market exuast fitted to my multistrada 1200s ,which is spitting out petrol. The fueling will need adjusting. Can i get the ecu flashed/mapped or do i need to fit a race ecu and have it flashed/mapped. ?

    Hi Ray, will give you a shot of my monster, had a power commander fitted when Richie made me a link pipe & end can, Stuart Young dyno'd it & it's fueled perfectly, Chappie could sort you out over on the Black Isle.

    same question again, but this time i dont want to here about monsters, no dyno,s or power commanders. the bike has 4 mods so lets keep it simple. my other bikes have power commanders and have been dynoed.

    Ray, the 2010 -2012 models had a race ECU that came with the Termi system. Later models had an upmap that came with the Termi but I doubt if the race ECU or the umap were ever available on there own.
    CJS Racing can do a custom upmap but won't do a postal service, they want the bike on the premises and given that they are in Bristol that's probably out of the question.
    An alternative is Cornerspeed, an official Ducati service centre and although based in Nottinghamshire will do a postal service. You send the ECU and they will reflash it with a Rexxer map to suit the bike and send it back to you. Neil, the owner is a long term Ducati enthusiast, has a very good reputation in the Ducati world and is very helpful.

    thanks derek, that guy sounds ideal. I will just have to check that it is a race ecu fitted and not a standard one.

    What year is your Multi and what exhaust is on it? Does the dash say "MTS1200 RACE" at power on?

    Stuart Young also has Upmapps for Multis

    HTH
    In Theory, Practice and Theory are the same. In Practice they are different.

    A 2011 fitted with a full Termi system would have had the 'race' ECU. A short Termi or other end can with or without the cat still in place would have the standard ECU. If you have a de-cat link pipe you'd be better with the ECU flashed as mentioned above. I don't know who Stuart Young is but I'm sure Tim can enlighten us.

    I phoned some of the recommended names and i have been advised that the exhaust box fitted with cat collects a lot of moisture,which will spit out a lot especially with a short end can fitted. I gave the moisture a wipe and it does not seem to smell of pure fuel.

    The combustion process produces a lot of water as steam (and CO2,etc). At start up with a cold system some of the steam will condense in the exhaust and will spit out as water droplets but as it heats up, and the cat gets very hot, there should be no water evident. If the cat is doing it's job there should no unburnt fuel in the moisture, but that's not to say that there will be no unburnt fuel leaving the engine. The cat will burn it up, that's what it's there for.

    Nelly on Ducati Forum (Cornerspeed) will do a ReXxer remap by post. Tell him your spec and he'll select the appropriate one. Made my Multi much smoother and better to ride. C200+. Worst bit is getting the ECU out. It CAN be done without removing the fairing panels, but it's not worth the faff on-take them off and see what you're doing.
    My best exhaust system was a full Termi one-no cat but a big, long end can. That has the different ECU-reads MTS 1200 Racing on startup.

    yes, i had a look at the ecu and the fuel tank off would make it much easier aswell. Thanks.

    No need to take the tank right off. Remove the panels and take the screws out but just lift the tank far enough to access the ECU. There is a single screw and 2 plugs IIRC.

    While you do have the tank up or off, check that the wiring loom isn't trapped or chafing as it runs underneath.
