Glad to be back....2019 Pikes Peak

Hello all. Been away for a few years experimenting with some Aprilia’s (Tuono’s and RSV4’s)....really enjoyed them.

I have had 3 previous Pikes Peaks (12’, 13’ and a 2014)...and LOVED them. So, am thrilled to be back again...and picking up my 2019 PIkes Peak later this week. Excited to see the difference that the DVT and 1260 motor has made on this beast. I have been reading all of the posts and reviews...and look forward to maybe doing a comparison myself.

Couple of additional points/questions:

1) I have already ordered a 42 tooth rear sprocket (for some additional low and grunt)...and will either swap myself or have the dealership do it when I pick it up. Any tips or recommendations on the install would be appreciated. (Watched a few vids)
2) Also ordere an RG radiator guard.
3) Ok.. now the dreaded question about decatting with an Arrow midpipe. If I do a midpipe at all (for weight and maybe a slight pickup in power/sound).... I would ONLY CONSIDER DOING A MIDPIPE WITH STOCK HEADERS AND THE STOCK TERMI that comes with the Pikes Peak...with NO TUNE. I have read I believe to be ALL of the posts on decatting.... however still haven’t seen the exact answers I am looking for. So my questions are:
A) has anyone with a 1260 done a midpipe yet and keep the stock headers/pipe...and NO TUNE? If so...results? Did the stock ECU adjust the A/F ratio?
B) Ideally, i would be looking for any hard data... like the stock air/fuel ratios pre mid pipe......and then the air/fuel rations after the midpipe and NO TUNE.

To clarify...I am NOT looking for input on doing the full TERMI system, or mid pipes WITH TUNES, etc. If those are the only way to effectively decat the bike....then I will leave well enough alone, as I am not interested in giving up my warranty. (I did a Mivv and Tune on my 2014, and just not interested in doing a tune again).

Thanks in advance fellas.... and thrilled to be back on a Ducati!!

Welcome aboard...right now, the full termi and map is about the only option. Don't think there is even a mid-pipe available for the 18/19 Multis last time I looked.....

I'd rather have a bottle in front of me then a frontal Labotamy!

I have a 1260S and have been looking. Right now, there is no midpipe available, so the full termi is the only option. I'm not willing to do it either. So the oven roaster stays on for now.

I’m in Dayton, although I was in Columbus Saturday for the game and Sunday with my family...and I’ve been toying around with getting a Multi for something cushier for trips etc. Ironically, I also have an Aprilia Tuono! Anywho, where’d you get your Multi? Any advice on dealers around here? Thanks!

I know what you mean about tunes, but sometimes they make such an improvement...look at the OFT Tablet for the Aprilias, what an improvement in rideability...

Firstly..... O H !!!! <img src="https://www.ducati.ms/forums/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" /> What an amazing game/outcome for the Buckeyes. Still over the moon about it.

In terms of dealers... I highly recommend both Motohio and Iron Pony both. I am a bit of a wingnut... and somehow find a silly reason to buy a bike every year, so have bought plenty from both dealerships (Ducati’s, Aprilia’s, BMW’s, Japanese, etc). Iron Pony is much larger and also has all the accessories in the world, whereas Motohio is smaller and family owned but SUPER knowledgeable and well respected. Both fair on pricing/deals, and solid service departments.

I just did this after receiving advice on the dedicated thread. You probably have something to break the nut loose on the sprocket side after owning all those multis. I had to buy a big-ass breaker bar with the 55mm socket. About $70 delivered. The big-ass torque wrench to put it back on was $65 delivered, both from Amazon.

Soak the axle nut and sprocket nuts with PB blaster the day before. Break loose the sprocket nuts. Break the axle nut loose with bike on ground and standing on rear brake. Takes a friend unless you are Superman. Loosen the two screws cinching hub and roll the chain full loose. Remove axle nut. Pull out sprocket and carrier. Use 10mm hex from behind carrier and brace for a fight, they are locktite tight. I used a small air gun. I suppose a little heat could help but they are through rubber bushings, don't want to degrade those.

Wire wheel or brush the nuts clean of locking compound. Use a bit of blue locktite when reassembling. I used my torque wrist but if you have a proper wrench the spec is 36ft lb IIRC. Pop it back into place and tighten axle nut. Adjust chain to spec, on sidestand in enduro suspension mode. I used the provided Ducati chain device.

Enjoy proper gearing, it's much improved. If you have all your tools prepped and a good work space it's a 30-45 job as Dave K claimed. Don't ask me how long it took...

I posted a thread on this topic with no replies as of yet.

You may buy the full termi header parts individually although I can't get a confirmation if they fit the carbon Pikes Peak Termignoni silencer.
I was in contact with Yaman at Rapidbike today and they have a 1260 on their test bench. The new calibrated unit should be available for sale soon.
With this unit, you don't need a tune as it self-adapts. You can manually adjust the AFR also among many other parameters.

Wow...just did some reading on the Rapidbike product. This could be an interesting option.

Thank you.
