Tuning recommendations

Hey guys,
I finally started unpacking the goodies that came with the low mileage 2014 1199R I picked up a week ago. To my surprise there was no up map key in the box from Ducati for the full system. I have a call out to find out if the previous owner still has it but he last told the dealer he gave them everything he had. So potentially I'm stuck with a full system and no key to swap the race up map and take advantage of the full system power boost. Not knowing much about ecu tuning I've been searching but I'm just getting more confused. I've come across posts with rexxer tuning and tune boy. Will these effectively do the same thing? I'd really like to throw this setup on soon but there's probably no point on the stock tune. Could I just throw on the termi mufflers as a slip-on setup for now? Thoughts?

You can run the full system with the stock map . I use a rexxer map it's not a piggy back type system but essentially will give you a better tune than a up map will .
I have never used Tuneboy or Rapid Bike but people are getting great results from these systems as well but are more hands on than the Rexxer or a up map .

If you have a competent tuner available (how far are you from EDR?) you can use RapidBike and have a custom dyno tune done. That will always, always give you better results than some generic map.

I'm running a rexxer tune and am very happy with the results after gutting the cats on my oem cans. I just scored a crazy deal on a full termi system and need to see if my tuner needs to write a different map.

What is EDR? I live in Los Angeles. Should I call some Ducati dealers for tuner recommendations?

Thanks Wilks, how do I get that tune? Just mail them my ecu and they send it back?

I've used PC and Rapidbike. I find the RB easier to use and install and it tunes as I ride.. You can actually feel a difference the longer the trackday or ride goes.. It kinda creeps up on you as you ride.. I prefer RB..


Be nice Claymore lol

for all cored exhausts i ship out i add the note where i recommend the RB due to its simplicity and adaptive results.
