If your roads are less than smooth I'd fit a steering damper. I got spat off on a bumpy corner after a massive tank slapper over a month ago and this is the first post since then. I'm familier with the road and have had no problems before on my749s or my wife's M750 , both of which have steering dampers . I'll be fitting one as part of the repair process.

What would a power commander do to a stock setup?

If you plan on getting the Termi's they will come with a new ECU and free flowing air filter so you won't need a Power Commander (which is not available yet anyway) or a K&N.

IMO lowering the gearing is a must do

A 14t front sprocket is easy
I went to a 14 front with a 46 rear to lower the final gearing 10%
You loose about 12mph off of the top but the usable power everywhere else is much better.

Here's my current list for a few suggestions :D

2009 M696 Dark

Installed:
Termi SS slip ons (soon to be for sale...mufflers only...cheap)
"Race" ECU and air filter
DP oil cooler
Ohlins rear shock
14t front sprocket
46t DP rear sprocket
EK Quadra X-ring chain (Black)
CST Case Saver
Removed charcoal can replaced w/ Duc left side shroud
DP tail chop
Scorpio alarm with perimeter sensor
Pazzo brake and clutch levers (Black)
Motovation frame, fork, and swingarm sliders
Rizoma conical bar end weights/sliders (Black)
Rizoma "Radial Naked" mirrors (Black)
DP CF tank Pad
Tec Spec tank grip
CF top and bottom tank cover
CF front sprocket cover
CF header heat shield
CF Muffler guards
CF Headlight cover
CF Belt covers
Oberon "touring" pegs (Silver)
Rizoma billet oil filler cap (Black)
Speedymoto crankcase cover (Black)
Sato Racing 28mm clutch slave (Black)
Spiegler rear wave brake rotor w/Kevlar pads
Galfer front rotors & pads
Removed spacers from front stock turn signals
Numerous O-rings and seals to stop oil leaks

Appointment set for 7-20-09 @ Traxxion Dynamics for complete AK-20 fork rebuild with full external adjustments

On order:
Full CF slip ons with Ti internals (can't tell you more yet..its a secret)
DP CF Cable guard

Purchased but yet to be installed:
MBP valve colets
Complete set MBP shims

Wish list:
DP steering damper

Whew.......:yeah:

What are you looking for in your bike's upgrades? Performance or looks??

I would say for "MUST DO's" on the 696 right after you get it are....

Tail chop... Cleans up the bike so much

Sliders... Protect that nice bike you just bought

New mirrors... Stock ones look hideous

Exhaust.... Whatever brand you get, anything works/looks better than stock

Then, down on the road...
Oil cooler, powercommander(if it is ever released), carbon fiber or powercoated parts, rearsets, air filter

Q's?

.

46t DP rear sprocket

Removed charcoal can replaced w/ Duc left side shroud

Scorpio alarm with perimeter sensor

Pazzo brake and clutch levers (Black)

Oberon "touring" pegs (Silver)

Removed spacers from front stock turn signals



.
That's the stuff I was looking for, thanks, have a favorite source for all that stuff?

With the 46 rear, did you have to change the chain?

Did you do the charcoal canister yourself? easy? Take it to a dealer?

Is the alarm crazy?

How did you remove the spacers?

Pics would be much appreciated!!:D

Stock chain length will work with 14/46 but the OEM DID o-ring chain is really stiff (sucks up power)

Removing the charcoal canister is easy to do but you will need the left side air deflector, $34.95 from MotoWheels.com



Alarm install was a bit of a challenge but with some aircraft connectors and shortening the Scorpio harness I was able to fit it all under the tail in the space that the 1100 uses for the exhaust valve selenoid. (I did buy the DP alarm, what a piece of junk)

The spacers remove easily, just remove the blinkers, toss the spacers, and get some shorter mounting bolts to reinstall (I used the stock bolts from the rear signals that where replaced with the ones from the tail chop kit) Moves them inboard over an inch.

Unless its for warranty a dealer never sees any of my bikes.

Will take some pics tomorrow :D

Even though the Termi's come with a new ECU, the mapping probably will not be optimal. Even on a stock system, the stock ECU mapping is not optimal. The power commander allows you to fine tune the air/fuel mixture at all rpms, and to smooth out any lean or rich spots. There is a local shop where I live that will custom map your power commander using a dyno. They charge about $250.

I have a GSX-R750 that I recently bought a power commander for. I just used the pre set map from powercommander.com and now it runs WAY smoother than stock ever did.

And yes the power commander is available for the 696:

No...no it is not :rolleyes:

It has been "available" to order since December, they will gladly take your money, but the unit has not been completed and they keep pushing the shipping date back.

With the Siemens injection and the new Monsters using Synerject’s M3C ECU with Freescale’s high-performance S12X microcontroller and two Lambda sensors it controls each cylinder separately and has more than enough range for street use. Unless you make some radical engine mods the recalibrated ECU that comes with the Termi kit will do you just fine. Even then, with this units technology, once someone allot smarter than me figures out how to access it without using Ducati's priority sofware, from what I have been told it has a bunch of potential.
.


I went with the EK MVXZ Quadra X-Ring chain
The stock chain is 108 links
I used the Ducati Performance 46 tooth rear, but any rear sprocket for a 900SS will fit the 696. If I had realized this before I ordered I would have gone with something else. I even have a rear sprocket from my old SS hanging on the wall :mad:

Stupid question button on*

Does the shorter gearing change your fuel millage?

Is the rear sprocket a DP part?

by the numbers yes

But reality for me at least was that I was not using sixth gear. With the stock gearing I was using 5th even on the highway. Now I am able to use sixth and am running roughly the same RPM so for me its probably a wash.
Couldn't really tell you though, when it needs it I get gas :D

DP offers a 45 (stock) 46, and 47 tooth. The 46 should be part # 968297AAA

Its an emissions thing... Something about catching excess fuel/fumes that leave the engine I believe... It's not necessary, is ugly, and is just extra weight, that is why many people take it off
