New 1299S Questions and Issues

Took her out for a quick blast yesterday and the check engine light popped on with 169 miles on the odometer. Additionally, I have been running it in Sport mode and the Sport indicator was blinking. I did change the engine output to High for Sport mode. It was nice day here in the foothills, mid-70's and dry.

Couple of questions:

1. I saw consistent engine temps north of 210 and a high of 218. I did not hear a fan kick in. Is the fan loud? What temp does it kick in?
2. I have had all the children I want (or need) and I assure this has been covered, but there must be a solution for the underseat heat issues. Wraps, etc. The heat is literally ball roasting....
3. Quick shifter buttons - don't seem to do anything.
4. Does the bike restrict certain modes etc until a certain breaking mileage.

Finally, Fay Myers or Boulder Motorsports for service? I bought the bike when I lived in another state. I have purchase a few bikes from Fay Myers but wanted an honest opinion for this bike.

I know I am going to get lambasted for not putting mileage on the bike, but have three boys who all play baseball, ride dirt bikes and do a bunch of other things plus I travel extensively for work. I ride when I can.

Thanks in advance.

I can reply on service - Both Fay Myers and Boulder Motorsports have excellent techs. Remember that for small jobs like an oil change etc both shops will put their lower experienced guys on the job because the guys who are really good will be doing the big jobs. Also remember that service through the dealership gets filed in the system with Ducati USA while any independent shop probably would not. BMS may have some connection to Ducati because they are a very reputable and well known service center but I would ask if its important to you. They are not a dealership.

I've had very good experiences with Fay Myers service and when I lived in Colorado I always took my bike to them. For the first service you may not be able to choose the tech you want but for a major service I always requested Jared do the job for me.

BMS has a new shop and a bunch of new techs. I haven't been there in quite a while but Brian is very professional and experienced and he makes you feel like you are getting a very personalized experience.

You are lucky to have these 2 shops available. Both can do a fantastic job.

I'll add to what Flynbulldog said:

I take both my 1098R and 1199 Superleggera to Boulder Motorsports and they're super. All three techs there have worked on my bikes and they're absolutely top notch (and I'm not just saying that).

As far as your specific problems:

I had the CEL come on my 1199 Superleggera at 160 miles and took it up to Boulder Motorsports and it was a bad MAP sensor (horizontal cylinder) and they changed it quickly and everything was good. Unfortunately, you need the computer to see what is causing the CEL. What I can say that is if it comes on during the pre-check before you start it, it's most likely a sensor that's displaying bad parameters but it could be any of 100 things. If it comes on when you're riding, the possibilities increase..

As to the heat, I've put a couple of hundred miles on the 1199 SL and haven't felt any excessive heat but maybe I'm immune after Ducatis all these years. Your displayed water temps seem normal to me. I'm mostly at sub 200 at highway speeds and just over 200 on the twisties at modest speeds. The fans are quiet (but I do feel the hot air on my legs and see the temp drop).

I have a QS mode in my settings that are on/off. Do you have that on the 1299? Maybe it's off?

Enjoy your awesome bike!

I did the following to reduce heat on my 1199S

1) I wrapped my pipes end to end with THERMO-TEC Exhaust Insulating Wrap: Black 2 inch. I overlapped the wrap a little tighter under the seat than normal to hold in the heat

2) Sprayed it with THERMO-TEC High Heat Wrap Coating to keep it clean and keep the water and oil off of it.

2) added MOTUL MoCool additive to cool the engine a little

3) installed Termignoni Titanium/CF Front Exit Slip-On Exhaust: Ducati 899/959/1199/1299.. The exhaust was shorter, better flowing AND exited away from my feet- so it seemed to help keep the heat off of me.

4) Added THERMO-TEC Adhesive Backed Heat Barrier: 12x12 inchto the inside of the exhaust shield and under the seat

5) flashed my ECU with this: Rexxer ECU Ducati Remap: Panigale/ MTS1200/ Diavel/ X Diavel

Thanks all. Perfect. Dropping off at BMS tomorrow. The Quickshifter setting is enabled in sport mode right now. No idea what is going on there. Add it to the list. Heat mods to come. Serious roasted chestnuts yesterday.

Just a quick thought on the quickshifter, when you say "buttons" are you referring to the Up/Down switch on the left bar? If so, that's a just a toggle switch; the quickshifter works the same as any other one when you shift. Sorry if that was obvious, but it wouldn't be the first time the question has been asked...

Agreed that Boulder is an awesome spot, have heard nothing but great things. Regular service/maintenance isn't actually logged in NDCS, only recall and warranty (factory, goodwill) repairs will be found.

The heat is definitely insane, disabling the exhaust valve or running a proper exhaust system with appropriate fueling will help. Leathers also help.

Dropped the bike off at BMS and met Brian and Joel yesterday. OMG. That shop is pure bike porn. Don't even know where to start. They Jedi mind tricked me though I knew going there would result in mods.

1. Akrapovic exhaust
2. Dyno tune
3. Air filter
4. Frame sliders
5. Rearsets
6. Throttle spacer
7. Pair system removal
8. Shift and clutch levers

They have both a full race Akra system and Street system. Any thoughts besides a rather sizable price difference?

What else am I missing that I should add to the list while the bike is under the knife?

Well that is helpful. First quickshifter equipped bike. I thought the two paddles on the left bar did the shifting. I appears not. If someone could explain their function and how the system works that would be helpful.
