If you were to purchase factory optional aftermarket exhausts from Ducati as in Termignoni and are listed for that model then usually they come with a plug in ECU to re map the fuelling to suit.

If on the other hand you fit a non standard exhaust and this applies to all makes its best to get the fuelling re mapped, this will involve fitting a power commander or the like and getting it Dyno tuned.

Its going to get harder and more expensive to do this sort of thing as new bike fitted with anti anti slide and so forth all have control of the fuel map as well.

How about the BrenTuning Tuner for 2012+ Ducati Monster 1200 (not sure if works with the "R" but doesn't say either way)?

Thoughts? or Reviews?


Thanks, Ben

Thanks, Ben
Guys, I did email BrenTuning and they said that the handheld works with the "R", but after I purchased it they asked me to send in pictures, etc. Then BrenTuning wrote me back to say "Looks like this is a continental ECU not the melco which I cannot do with the handheld". So I am back at zero.

My issue with adding the SC Project exhaust is that I smell like burnt exhaust fumes at work (~35 mile ride). I do like the look and the sound from the pipe, but I am going to put the factory pipe back on until I can find a solution to remedy the smell. I work in a professional environment where the coolness of smelling like the backside of a dumptruck is not optimal. I was hoping that the "tune" would correct the fuel ratio to resolve the smell. Am I the only one? What are the options now? It seems Rexxer is leading, but you have to send in the ECU to have them crack it open...or maybe the RapidBike Evo autotune?

I'm running with an SC-Project and an un-modified ECU with no such smell that may be considered much different than completely stock. I think your ECU tune is the primary suspect.

I am also running the un-modified ECU, so the tune should be the same. I'm surprised that your bike is not noticeably more fumey/smelly. I guess I'll mention it to my dealer/mechanic to see what their thoughts are.

DarR, I thought that you were going to get the Rexxer tune? Did you change your mind?

We're still snowed in and I'm still skiing for another two, maybe three weeks. I've contacted Rexxer only just a few days ago. Although It's a pain having to send the ECU to them and also a big leap of faith, I'm going through with the ECU mod shortly when riding weather comes around.

This will make a huge difference in performance. Termi upmap keeps the bike in closed loop and servo active and is over rich past 40% throttle. I'd pick another exhaust and stick with the ecu mapping for said pipe. If you are on the fence about an exhaust just do the mapping as it wakes the bike up a ton with greater drivability.
I'm glad you're back. Have you received an explanation about: "as well as the torque limiters in the first 3 gears"? Was this simply a misunderstanding?
This one bothers me as I would like to know more about it.

Rapid Bike woes

Iíve got a 2017 1200S with an SC Project Carbon Oval. I had a Rapid Bike Evo put on and thatís been a complete cluster. The RB does cause the bike to run better (pulls stronger). However, Iíve been getting a check engine light since the install. Very frustrating and not remedied as of yet. The SC Project exhaust is a home-run, though.

Just posted in another thread I have sc projects carbon oval and rapid bike with a custom tune. It made 143hp and 83 torque.I have not been able to ride bike yet but tuner said it ran great on dyno. I asked about engine light he said should not be a problem with the new tune. I will post back when weather breaks and. I ride bike.
