FIM ECU question

Anyone here know much about FIM ECUs? I'm in Portland, and I don't know of anyone here that tunes 'em. I'm not sure what I have is an FIM ECU, I just know it's a distinct possibility.

So what I have is either a stock ECU, or an FIM ECU that's mapped for DP/Remus high pipes and a stock airbox on a 900 Supersport.

What I need to know is: when I reinstall the stock lo-mount pipes in order to carry a passenger, will that cause problems with an FIM ECU mapped for the lower-restriction Ducati Performance pipes?

Re: FIM ECU question

Can you post a picture of your ECU?

My FIM is labeled as Ultimap U59.G2.

Re: FIM ECU question

You should have a Magnetti Marelli 1.5M ECU. FIM has a flash load programmer that can update that ECU with a custom map for your needs.

http://www.fuelinmoto.com.au/

Scroll down to the heading: UltiMapĀ® FlashLoads for Ducati 900ss & Guzzi V11 Sport

Not sure who does the flash loading these days, maybe Silverback? But I don't think putting the stock exhaust back on would do much more than cause it to run a little rich if your ECU is mapped for slip-ons only.

I believe duckman851 answered your question yesterday. And yes it is a stock ECU.

If loud pipes save lives, imagine what learning to ride that thing could do.<br /><br /><br />00&nbsp; M900Sie<br />08&nbsp; Concours 14 ABS

Re: FIM ECU question

COntact Fred or Doug at Silverback for the Flashload.

There are a few others that do it as well, but Doug does my FI mapping.

Re: FIM ECU question

portland where?
Maine?
bruce meyers of meyers performance (former BCM owner) might also be able to help you.
Anyway the ecu will not care one set of slip ons to the other. there is very little difference in the cans. open air box vs. closed airbox is another story.
good luck

Re: FIM ECU question

Most likely he's referring to Portland, Oregon.

Re: FIM ECU question

^ Umm, wrong profile....

Here's mine:
Quote:
Gender: Male
Age: 25
Location: Tualatin, OR
Bike Info: 2001 SS900ie Monoposto
Tualatin is a suburb of Portland, Oregon. If I were in the Northeast I'd talk to the BCM folks. Unfortunately, they're the only dealer still listed on FIM's website, and FIM doesn't give out their e-mail addy on the site. You have to fax them (an international fax, for those of us in the 'States), and they'll e-mail you back their addy. Sorry boys & girls, I'd rather not pay for a fax to find out *if* they can even answer my question.

There's one or two people I can talk to in Portland who *might* have or know someone nearby with the FIM software, but it's pretty long odds.

Anyway, thanks much for the input! I figured that just changing the pipes shouldn't mess with it too badly, especially not for occasional use only. If all else fails... I can cut 'em open and put a larger-diameter perfed core in them. I'm asking because the guy who currently owns the stock pipes I'm buying expressed concern about the ECU being way too radical to run with stock pipes.

I wouldn't even be asking if I could afford the $600 for DP low-mounts (which include the ecu), but I only need lows for occasional passenger duty, and I can't justify wasting that much money on something that won't get used much. If I start carrying a passenger regularly, I'll be aquiring a more suitable bike (MTS or ST), and the SS will either go back to full-time monoposto, or it'll go down the road.

Thanks again!

DOH! Bangs head on desk!

:P


I know for a fact that Silverback has the capability to do your flashload. Doug has been doing FIM stuff for many years.
