Default loping

Just picked up my 1100 evo and ive put 110 miles on it, I have to ride through several places to get to work where speed is 25, its almost impossible ,feels like im on the professional bullriders tour.Waiting on exhaust to show up and sprocket will be changed also in the front ,will this sprocket fix this?How many miles should i have on it before i can ride the pi$$ out of it? Traded a 600rr for this ,and hope it will perform to satisfy me.

First break-in period ends at 600 miles.

Things will get a bit better after 800 miles or so,
but some of the more popular fixes are:

Throttle Tamer
14 tooth front sprocket
ECU remap

I've done all 3 of these and now I have no problem going through 20 mph zones

My favorite method is just keep it in 1st gear and run the piss out of it.

Having the bike fight you back a little and "feels like riding a bull" is honestly why you bought a Ducati and not a Kymco or Hyosung.

I love my monster and I experienced exactly what your experiencing now. My previous riding experieince was all on inline 4 sport bikes. high reving.. precise machines. I was shocked when i first rode away on my duc from the dealer. stuttering, bucking, abrupt. There was no GREY? it was just black or white? On or off? I couldnt live with that. And i refused to accept what some herald as a badge of honor "its the way ducati's are".

Well, not mine. I did a few things that made the bike rideable in all conditions, not just Wide open throttle conditions

1. 14t sprocket
2. 500 cam throttle tamer (be advised most like the 300. I never tried it, dont know).
3. Bar end weights.
4. Gel grips.

Bike rides almost as smooth as a crotch rocket now. Yes, I know to many.. thats sacriligous (spelling). tough.

Fix it.. and make it yours, dont just "live with it".

I had much the same reaction at first. But after 18 months, I found that I don't notice it that much any more and can slowly trawl around carparks without thinking about it. Mind you, I have done mods 2, 3, & 4 (including the 500 TT). I am thinking of tossing the TT and getting the 14T sprocket as I am sick of the unpredictability of fast starts and the doughy feel immediately after launch if you don't slip the clutch enough. I nearly got blown off by a Cooper S the other day...

Try asking to exchange your TT for a #300 cam.
