Lightbulb Ducati 996 FIM UM222 Chip

Can anyone tell me where I can still buy a Ducati 996 FIM UM222 Chip?
I have a Ducati Performance COD 965025AAA installed at the moment.
I have read that the FIM chip is better and you can convert to single point injection.
I have 50mm Termi half system fitted with the Ducati Performance Chip, will I be better off going down the FIM route or not?
Is there any other way of making my Duke perform better without spending a fortune?
Any help would be fantastic!
Thanks in advance....Kevin

For the Ultimap 222, contact Austin748. He had an 853 chip burned from the shop that has the UM222 map and that can burn you that chip. Probably around $180.

I hear that the Fast by Ferracci 996 chip works well and you can find that at a lower price.

You could have a talk with TomTom. It is likely be able to get the chip you want. He is in Euroland so he may be the cheapest route.

Or just wait for eternity for the 222 to show up.

I contacted Ducati Minneapolis (formerly SilverBack) to have a chip made for my 853. Be warned though, they raised the price to $250, citing computer issues.

You can gain a lot of usable performance by lowering the gearing.

The 996 has a 1.84 primary ratio combined with a standard (non-close ratio) gearbox that makes it probably the highest geared stock Ducati ever. I strongly recommend that ALL 996 owners change from the stock 15/36 94-link chain to a 15/43 98-link setup (or the equivalent 14/40 96-links.)

This lower gearing also raises your top gear rpm at highway speeds to avoid the 3,500rpm stumble and 5,000rpm half-throttle bog that the UM222 smooths out. If you don't experience this stumble the FIM chip won't make a significant difference. It will however run lean at highest rpm because the single injector pulse duration maxes out.

Thanks everyone,
I have check and the bike has a 15/43 98-link setup so I guess that is why I don't seem to have any issues the bike runs fine no problems at all no matter how I ride it.
I think changing the Chip would be a waste of money if I could even source one over here.

So my next question is what about Air Filters.
I have stock ones at the moment, I hear BMC Filters are very good but cost a few pounds.
Is there any others on the market I should consider?
Once again thanks for everyones help here!

Best 916/748/996 Air Filter

I recommend the Pipercross MPX038 Air Filter.

ultimap ceased trading over 3 years ago, so the only way to find any of their eproms is second hand or old stock. silverback, doug lofgren and myself can make the eproms, but i can't sell you one labelled um222 as i don't own the name.

if you're revving it hard enough to have any issues with high rpm leanness then you're riding the wrong bike.

Mine needs help smoothing it out in the lower rpms in 1st and 2nd gear along with stopping the backfiring.

I don't mind one bit paying $250 for a quality chip that is similar to or better than the um222.
