Have you verified this by pulling your codes after disconnecting it?

It definitely does trigger a code(not on the dash). It doesn't matter to me (or to Ducati) because the termi install instructions tell you to remove the whole servo mechanism from the bike.

I thought the full termi kit was not street legal.

I was thinking just mechanically. On my CBR I just disconnected the cable from the servo motor, it still thought it was actuating a valve and never threw a light. Unless there is some sort of position feed back I don't see why this wouldn't work.

This would be the disconnection I was referring to. Didn't occur to me anyone would dig around and disconnect the motor.

There was mention of throwing a code due to disconnecting it and in ADATT's post he mentioned disconnecting it electrically. That is why I mentioned just disconnecting the cable and leaving it to think it is functioning.

From what some say even disconnecting only the cable will show a fault code if dealer checks as when it does the self check on startup the servo ends up in the wrong spot

Just disconnecting the mechanical servo linkage cable will not trigger a fault code. Even if it did...who cares...I would prefer to remove the whole unit. Weight savings
