I have a 2010 Multistrada and have noticed tonight that it is giving me an 'EXVL ERROR'.

Scuse my ignorance but what is this error for, what does it mean, how do I fix it and finally is it expensive to fix ?

This is an error generated as a result of a problem with the valve in the exhaust. Upon start up, your bike will cycle the exhaust valve. If there is a problem doing so, it will throw the code. Look at the cat/muffler. On the right side of the bike, you will see where a cable comes in to a contraption with a spring. My guess is that something is wrong there (probably a broken spring). Take a look at it and report back if you still have questions. Hope this helps.

I think that they get gummed up and stick??? Not sure for sure...
Don't panic yet:eek:

Maybe just some lubing up may help???

Last week my '10 popped up with that code, and the exhaust flapper valve quit cycling at power up. Unfortunately, the day before I had just resigned myself to the fact that I had a steady oil leak after my recent engine rebuild, and then this stupid code showed up. Needless to say, I was pissed. The code hung around for a few days, and then it went away, and the valve started working again. Hopefully just a few confused electrons that have now found their way...

I had the arrow exhaust on my bike,which uses a small plate on exhaust stepper motor so you don't get exvl error,but the motor had started to make a grinding noise,and when I refitted the standard exhaust it failed altogether and two of the plastic gears inside the stepper motor gearbox had stripped their teeth,so I had to buy a secondhand motor to repair.lucky one was advertised on fleabay and wasn't expensive.

You should've just got yourself the DUC.EE and keep the whole servo-motor out of there.

the DucEE worked for me and then stopped working....maybe a defective unit, but i've read more than a few stories stating the same.

perhaps they've improved them over the last year plus.

Funny thing is that it is probably not much more than a resistor to fool the computer into thinking it is still there. I'll bet those extra wires on their harness go nowhere.

I wouldn't want that to happen...

I bought a Tuneboy set up, but have yet to install it (kinda snowy here in Denmark these days).

Would be good if they (Tuneboy) could address the EXVL and the service notice as well (useless Ducati add ons).

According to wcieslik the Tuneboy does address the EXLV error see below:
Also, the DUCEE is apparently not just a resistor. I've had 2 sent to me. Neither works consistently on my bike...Seems mine is a bit more cranky than others. We just cannot get the unit to work on my bike. PLEASE do not take this to be negative about maker of the DUCEE. Bernard was excellent in dealing with me trying to get it working. Because of his support, I would do business with him again without a second thought. The product just does not work on my bike,:confused: but looks like it works on most others.

Posts: 457 dont know if this was answered earlier Mr Sunshine or perhaps in the other thread, but yes, the custom tune option doese disable the EXVL error, so the cable and or servo can be removed.

and Wayne did reset the service ibdicator on my bike and is or has added the means to do that. cheers, Witto..

I am sooo thankful for this reply. This was my problem as well ('12 Monster 796). Bike was running real bad, cutting out, very choppy. I'll check out the exhaust valve. Thanks.

It means your Ex is Evil.

Seems pretty logical no? :shrugs:
