I've had both tunes, initially a Rexxer and then I went to Tuneboy for the added CC.
Two different bikes! Rexxer was better than std, but Tuneboy a lot smoother overall.
I've emailed Tuneboy with some minor issues and only ever had great response.
I'll admit I did not do the tuning as I had Tuneboy recommended dyno tuning shop tune on the dyno.
SilverFox , Ive got a rexxer flash also wout cruise. In order for me to install tuneboy , what are my steps . Do I just install over Rexxer or have to delete rexxer first . Trying to figure this thing out .before I purchase .

I do not believe you can do this on the bike ECU. You should be able to make different maps on your computer using the trim program, store them on the computer and load them on the bike ECU when you want.Can you have more than one map in memory and switch between them? For example if you had two different exhuast baffles, one for track and one for street that you switch between fairly often.
TB works beautifully on the 2013 (after some initial troubles with the CC which were fixed) with the latest V3 map + trim file.This all sounds good
I note that nobody who responded rides a 2013 MTS1200 and the mapping is obviously different given the change to twin spark head etc.
As the outlay is significant price wise, I have emailed Tuneboy sales and hopefully they will respond indicating that they have a suitable map.
Then I can go ahead and buy their product with confidence as at present there is nothing to indicate that they are able to provide the map and software I require either on their site or on this site (That I have been able to find).
Those are mostly good points.TuneBoy is the way to go. It is the best of the best so far.
A few reasons why I chose TB.
1) It's not a piggyback system.
2) You don't need to take out the ECU and send it out, which also creates downtime.
3) And many Ducati Dealerships have the ECU remapped, either with Rexxer or TB. But as time goes on, more and more dealers recommend and use TuneBoy !
4) and last but not least, all the Ducati riders in this forum also use and recommend TuneBoy.
That's good enough for me. My buddies and I are using TB and we are more than happy with it.
My apologies, I didn't mean all. I meant those who does the remapping of the ECU prefers TuneBoy cause of all the options we have and we can constantly change the mapping, have cruise control, and what not...Those are mostly good points.
However there is NO WAY you know with 100% certainty that "4) and last but not least, all the Ducati riders in this forum also use and recommend TuneBoy." I can pretty much gaurentee that one statment is not true.
The other thing to consider is whisk Duc you have because TuneBoy DOES NOT support all Duc's not even close.
Just saying you need to be more careful when you make a blanket statement like that.

Peter, I have not used the "autotune" function in TB, but have data logged with it and then used it's automatic calculations to built maps...It's a little fiddly getting everything to communicate right, but one I sorted out my computer inadequecies it works quite well in my experience. It really is fairly simple to do everything. the most dificult part is getting the laptop to comunicate and not drop the log file. There is a thread specific to tuning with the TB http://www.ducati.ms/forums/216-2010-current-2nd-generation-watercooled/212689-tuning-mts1200-tuneboy-program.html ...Also some of the other forums like streetfighter have some good tuning info with the TB.Tuneboy do not have much in the way of pre made maps for the 2013 model as per their email to me (below).
That said the auto tune setup does sound good, has anybody used it?
For those of you that have the TB full kit with LC1 sensors...on a 2013 if it matters, Do you leave it (them) installed all the time or just when you want to get readings. I'm considering buying 2, but if it is used just for readings and pulled out after fuel corrections are made, one should be enough and an extra $200 need not be spent. But if the ECU or TB software uses the input from them constantly, I would like to have 2.
