899 Question.

Hi , I am new here and new to ducati ... I just picked up a 899 2014... The bike is stock .

1. I was wondering if a power commander is worth the money for my bike... I do want to purchase mufflers down the road.

2. Changing my exhaust do I need to re flash the computer?


3. Whats is a good exhaust around 1500.00 price range?


Thanks.

I would recommend the RapidBike tuner if you want to improve fueling on the 899, we've had great luck with them and no dyne-tuning is required since it will self-adjust the map. For exhaust, I haven't seen anything that I would personally put on a Panigale other than the Akrapovic or Termignoni. The Termignoni is slightly over your budget but does come with the up-map key to unlock the performance map in the stock ECU without any further tuning components required, so it's definitely the "simplest" solution.

I was just reading on the rapid Bike , Very cool and super easy to use.. So its just a plug and play never think about it again.

When i add a exhaust I will not need to re flash computer it will learn mods? Did I get it right ?

Yes, the Rapid Bike does not require any modifications to the stock ECU on the bike, it's a totally external system and it will auto-adapt for any exhaust you put on the bike. Pretty slick system, I've been very impressed with it.

I called Rapid Bike today, they advised me not to buy a kit because this bike has a new ECU with lots of memory , Raidbike has issues communicating with ECU . He advised there is a 10% delay in RPM and fuel .I am not a tuner and don't really what it all means however know enough not to buy it... I thanked him for is honesty .
I wanted to share his feedback.

Who did you talk to?? We've put Rapid Bike units on lots of 899's and there are no problems with it.

He probably accidentally got a hold of claymore and was told that pcv with autotune is a better way to go.

Call Yaman at (407) 277-5557, they are the North American importer for Rapid Bike and he is THE MAN who knows all things Rapid Bike.
