Hello,

Was wondering if anyone has gone the Akra way for the FS on 2016 DVT. Did search around, didn't find anything on this.

Would really appreciate if anyone could throw some light on this.

Was planning on a Optional Header (Titanium) E-D12E6 + Slip-On Line (Titanium) S-D12SO9-HAPT combo.

Any remapping required? Akra support says they don't have any upmap/remapp for this though they said this combo works well without any change in maps.

TIA!

Friend of mine did it. Looks and sounds awesome, though he did some extra cutting on the carbon part. He's says it runs fine. But he's doing a rapid bike EVO soon

I just installed the slip-on version this weekend, the Dominator de-cat showed up Tuesday.
I'm going to hold off on the De-cat till I order the rabid bike system.

I had to trim the carbon shield also, that and I didn't use the spacers on the hanger.
If I used the spacers my side pannier would not mount.

I'm mildly disappointed in Akra since the listing clearly states they work with the panniers.

I will be keen on knowing more about the Rapidbike set up.
Yes, a Rapidbike unit is a must. Exhaust manufacturers like Akrapovic and Temignoni are snake oil salespeople. They offer fuel upmaps when on contract with Ducati such as available for Panigale's yet they say you don't need fuel map adjustment for models where Termignoni is on contract and btw, vice-versa. Real POS salesmanship IMHO.

I have kept my Rapidbike unit when I traded my Panigale. It works flawlessly. I intend to re-install it on my Multistrada eventually once I remove the exhaust valve.
The set-up is simple and Rapidbike will equip the unit with a basemap that closely matches the equipment you have on your Multi. It will then self-adjust to fine tune the fueling a few hundred miles of riding thereafter.

This is good information. Bike is out for the 30000 km Desmo service. It sure is running lean going by the way it pops on decel. Need to figure out ways of getting this asap.

Been very pleased with my full Akrapovic setup with RapidBike on my 2016 PP. Was hoping to get by with no remap originally, based on what the Akra reps said about it being designed for the stock mapping. Definitely found quite a bit of improvement in smoothness through the rev range, with less lag on aggressive acceleration with the RapidBike. Sound and appearance of the system are fantastic.

So basically, tell the rapidbike folks of what set up the bike is on, they get the map uploaded on to the Rapidbike unit and ship it. Is that understanding correct?

I wrote to one of the support id's on the website, it landed into one of the italian mail id [email protected] , I did get the initial response asking at what rpms am I encountering the popping. I gave them a few scenarios, and then haven't heard from them despite reminders.

I will probably try the US id.
