Just wanted to drop a quick thanks to everyone who has been working on this project. You've improved the starting of my 2001 st4s immeasurably
I've been having starting / running issues with my st4s since i bought it back in 2012. Been through loads of parts trying to resolve the issue, good news is that i know the bike inside and out now!
Recently found this thread and thought I'd try getting the data from my ECU, mainly to switch off the immobiliser as i don't have the red key or the key card for this bike and only one key which works with the immobiliser.
Downloaded all the appropriate software required and successfully got the data from my ECU, immediately ran into an issue where my bin file does not align with the xdf generated by Meinolf, so was unsure if i could still turn off the immobiliser in my bin file as the location could be different.
I then saw the bin file that Meinolf was available for download and obviously that aligns with the xdf perfectly so i figured I'd try download that bin into my ECU (did a trial run with my bin file first) Downloaded the new bin file successfully and hit the start button, The bike sprang into life as soon as i pressed the button! From cold and without touching the enrichment lever! something that would have been impossible with my original map.
One happy camper now, not touched the immobiliser settings yet but that's only a few minute job. Now to find a DP map for it
Bit of history, On the early st4s (apparently) the calibration software for starting was iffy, this was a known issue and Ducati dealers were resolving it by replacing the ECU's. In later model year bikes the calibration was changed and the issue resolved.
