Akra downgrade and upgrade

Hi guys,

Just bought a second 1299s, its a 2015 with DP akra slip ons.

I would like to swap the slipons and mount them on my 2017 1299s.

the 2015 have the upmap installed (dash says "racing"), if I mount the stock exhaust, will I have issued due to the upmap installed?

regarding the 2017, mounting the Akra slipons without any software update. is that bad ?
if I complete the DP pips which comes with an upmap, will it make the system a full system just as if I had bought a complete system from the beginning?

ps.how the hall can the left hand mounting bolt can be reached ??
its behind the chain


Thanks

thanks

Yes you will have a problem. The bike will run to lean. Since the upmap is locked to the old bike you will have to get another one or do a custom tune with rapidbike or that other brand called tuneboy I think.

as I wrote thought to buy the DP akra pipes which come with the full system upmap.

what about the bike with the upmap installed and stock exhaust?

The left rear-set needs to come off. As ever, Ducati makes everything so much more complicated than need be for wrenching on your own bike. Even getting off the rear-set itself is a pain.

The bike with the up map and stock pipes will run too rich. You will essentially be choking the bike.

You do not absolutely have to remove the stock rear sets in order to get the left side on it can be done without but it is easier to remove the rear sets. You will need a ball nose Allen key in order to do it without removing the rear sets or a U-joint socket extender.

this is false. its locked to A bike not a specific bike. you can't have it on 2 bikes at once just download the stock map onto the bike you want. the racing or slip on map will be on the dongle. then download the upmap to the bike you want the dongle will then again have the stock map on it.

and no you won't have any problems if you leave it on without the slip. you dont need anything you may want something need is another story.

Mark, this is incorrect.

The upmaps are not reusable on the 1299 like they are on the 1199. Plus, only the dealer can install it.
