Well, the issue there is that without the DP ECU, you will have limited tuning ability with a Power Commander due to the stock one being a closed-loop system with the O2 sensors. You have to disable those and then you can tuns all you want with the PC-V.Not to thread jack, but I have a question along the same lines-
I bought a 09 1198 and have the FMF slip ons and a BMC filter enroute as we speak. I was thinking about a PC V (I think, maybe its a VII) and a custom map. It would save me over $1k over a full Termi/ Ackro/ Remus etc. system and should produce an decent power increase for the money.
I don't have much experience w/ Ducati ecu's and the such, but have had great success with PC's and a dyno tune on all my past race and street bikes. Even without making great HP increases, the rideabilty and power delevery was much improved. Am I off base?
probably so. They're called Fat Duc o2 Manipulators. We've installed a couple on customers bikes (only 2valves so far though) and they are definitely an interesting product. They do however cause the random CEL (usually an upstream lambda code) and are kinda finicky. Bikes run beautiful with them installed and some minor fuel/throttle body tuning.Good info. The device your talking about, would that be one of these "Fat Duc's" I've read about?
