Full Akrapovic SL ?s

Hi guys, Iím interested in changing the exhaust on my 1199R it has the full term on it and I would like to put the Akrapovic SL1299 exhaust on it. At the moment itís a dedicated track bike. From what if found Iím pretty sure it will fit, but Iím not sure if itís going to turn into a tuning nightmare. If anyone has any constructive feedback it would be appreciated.

Hi mate,
I fitted the 1299 FE exhaust to my 1199. From a fitting point of view there was no change, everything fitted perfectly, but....
I was doing a long ride and approx. 600km into the ride the bike started to stall. I pulled over and the exhaust cans were hot but nothing unusual. The exhaust also included the Euro 4 type cans which run way hotter than my Termis.
Started the bike, all good. Rode for another 20kms and the bike stalled again. When I pulled over there were flames coming out from under the exhaust cans.
The $11 plastic stone guard the covers the sump had ignited. Black smoke pouring out everywhere and the inside surface of the cans was glowing red.

I put it out on the forum for some ideas and a lot came back that the MAP sensor was fucked. I had no fault codes on my bike (pushed it down to my local dealer), but none the less I changed the plugs and leads just incase.

I was still running the Termi UP map and believe the bike was running rich and I had a carbon fire due to the design of the internals of the cans.

Fortunately there was no damage to the bike. I got the cans cored out.

Since then I have tried 12 different maps that TB supply with the software. Some have good points other just keep making the bike stall when you move off in 1st gear, so I have bitten the bullet and I am getting the bike fully tuned on the 24th May by a professional tuner using TB software and wideband sensors.
I have been told it will be a 2 day process, in which he tunes and balances each cylinder in 20% increments i.e F20%, R20%, F40%, R40% all the way up to 100% throttle. This is costing $800AU, which include him using a harder tyre mounted on my spare rim.

I hope this helps.

maybe look at the CAT removal Pipe from Ducati Coventry / JHP racing ( on facebook)
as that might help you prevent this

Thanks for the info. I was thinking the SL exhaust didn’t have a cat.

I pull the picture from the site I was planning to order it from. It sounds like a major PIA . I think I’ll just ride what I have for now. Thanks for the information
