I agree with John: you want a Duc shop and you want experience.If its a PC then find a competent Dynojet PC center with experience on the Ducs. Infoage may know of someone as I believe he's done the Power Commander thing.
Well, I guess my initial impression of Spectrum's new mechanic, Neil Freeman, was, um, spot on. I was at Spectrum today fishing for valve shims in their parts department and ran into Neil. I asked him how he was doing, if he was getting settled into to the California life ok.I agree with John: you want a Duc shop and you want experience.
I had my map done at Orange County Motorsports (as did Scott S), and I was disappointed. Scott's was the second Ducati he ever had on his dyno, mine was the third. While the bike did run better, the air/fuel curve is very uneven and the tuner himself gave me bad vibes. He is an ex big-time Triumph road-race mechanic with a (Ducati) ax to grind, and he spend a fair amount of time belittling Ducatis in general, and my Termi full system specifically. I tweaked the new map myself the very next day, and think it is improved.
I plan on having Dan Kyle build me a new map this summer to match my latest mods. But, if I were to do it around here, I would take it to Neil at Spectrum Motorsports. I spent over an half-hour talking to him at their open-house and came away impressed. Among the things we talked about were PowerCommanders and their capabilities. He sounded quite knowledgeable and certainly enthusiastic.
They were in the process of moving across the street, so there was a fair amount of disarray. Still, we found shims close enough that I could sand down to make work. Given that I'm running corsa springs, I need to stay very tight on the clearances so there's no way I'd find an exact match anyway.Did you find any shims there?
