I'm a little pissed off at the moment, can't seem to find anyone that offers any aftermarket tuning equipment with an auto tune feature for the 748/ 998 / 916 etc. I'm stationed in Italy and can't find anyone to dyno my bike with the power commander 3 ( the only tuning program at the moment) ( and yea I know you can tune the Ecu with software from ducati). So an auto-tune feature would be very beneficial to me.
As I do more research I find out that dyno jet ( manufacturer of power commander) has such thing and a new power commander the 5, but no support for the ducati superbikes. So I email them and ask if they have a universal version or if they would be coming out with a model. Response : no. we will not make any for the ducati super bikes. Well fuck me right.
On to the next I look at bazazz , I see a lot of ad's for best auto tuning programs blah blah blah. Every product the offer seems really great but none available for the superbikes. Ughhh frustrated.

Does anyone know of any other equipment or am I going to have to take my bike to ducati themselves and say hey tune this!

I had the same problem, my solution was to install a Microtec Ecu in my 748R...

I lived in Rome for 3 years, had a 748 while I was there. Was good friends with a number of Ducati Mechs. When I told them I had a Power Commander 3 on my 996 SPS, they told me to...and I quote: "Take that shit off of there man. Those things are for Jap bikes"

Not what you want to hear, I know, but thats most likely why you aren't getting any joy on that side of the pond.
Would you ever consider going with a custom EPROM and a good tune job from a good mechanic instead of a PC3? IF so, I might be able to stear ya to the right people.

I dont have a problem with removing the Power commander, Ive just had bad experience with eproms, Fast by ferrachi, termi, both garbage thank god i got them with the bike and didnt pay for them.

So upon further research I found an actual dynojet authorized tuner here in sicily so i might take it to him and see what he can do.

While emailing bazzaz back and forth they told me that they are coming out with equipment for the 998 so im in the process of asking dates and if it will be compatible with the 748.

Motech might be my last resort if the wait for the bazzaz to come out is too far off.
