Installing Akrapovic Slip-on, Remove Servo or no?

Anyone experienced with removing the flap? What to do with the error code?

There was no error while installing the full system so i don't see why you'd have the error code with the slipon.

I removed the servo when I installed my Akra slip-on, but I always assumed there would be an error code so I bought one of plug in modules.

I completely removed the motor, flapper valve, the add-on brackets for the flapper and blocked the holes with counter sunk allen bolts and nuts. Whole system Jet Hot black.

On a side note...with ceramic coatings, if you're not getting the inside coated you're missing out. Jet Hot made a difference, and IMO, the mixed reviews in regards to the ceramic coating is due to just that. Some coating supplies aren't spraying the inside, which gives less than seller results.

The modules just trick the ECU into thinking its still moving the servo, and that its present. I wonder if the ECU has a provision that allows the servo to be unplugged w/o throwing the code. But, I also wonder if the ECU changes anything else when it detects the servo has been removed.

I'll try unplugging it and see what happens.

Sort of off topic but I remember another thread you mentioned running the Akra full system w/out any upmap.

When you installed the full Akra w/out any tuning or upmap, how did it run, idle, did it run smoother etc?

I've had it for like a year with no problems. Idles fine and runs better. Well, definitely no worse than oem. I'm waiting for the full system termi upmap i recently purchased and I'm going to dyno the bike before the upmap and once more immediately after the upmap. Same shop, same day. A couple of people on here have ran their full Akrapovic with the termi full upmap and have had no issues with it. Although you don't "need" a tuning solution of any kind for the Akrapovic, i figured why not. I certainly don't need the added power since it's already a powerful bike and it's not like the bike runs like crap to begin with. Just makes a good bike better. I would do the RB module but at almost $1000 for the top system, it's pretty steep. I don't push the bike hard in the first place.

Huh. So I went and unplugged the servo buddy thing I bought from Revzilla. No check engine light. Now, I didn't go for a ride or anything, just started it and let it idle and gave it a few twists.

I'm a little pissed about this.

I saw a thread on the 899 forums about the same thing. Some one either referenced or linked a manufacturer, who wrote on their site that they weren't required on the newer Ducati models. The 1199 wasn't referenced directly, but the Monster 1200 was.

I'm thinking I've been shammed.

I've already hooked up the return policy.

No shit. Check this out...

http://www.vizi-tec.com/duc-ee/

* The new Hypermotards (821 base) and new Monsters (1200 base) don't need this device . These new Ducati bikes will not throw an error if/when you remove the exhaust servo system. Sure I could sell you one... but you would be wasting your money. If someone else is selling you an elminator for these bikes... they lack integrity.

Yea. At least it's not expensive. Hopefully you can return it though.

Def good to know. My '13 has that stupid low end surge/lunges when cruising around 30mph and steady on the throttle. The dealer said the bike is up to date so I'm wondering if the Akra might somehow fixed that since you've mentioned it runs better.

I'm really considering the Akra more now since it has silencers making it quiet for Laguna.
