I plan on ordering this, but I two question?
1) where is the connector located on the 848 streetfighter
2) does the DRD correct front and rear sensors?
Thanks

It looks like it intercepts the rear wheel sensor signal and sends on a modified signal to the ECU that is designed to correct for the builtin error. Two concerns I would have are 1) Connectors. Their web site states that it comes with a Harley compatible connector, I don't know but would be very surprised if it will fit the ducati harness connectors. 2) If you use DTC at all that may trip at all speeds. Two of the DTC inputs are front and rear wheel speeds. If the rear speed signal is modified and the front is not that may indicate a very significant wheel speed mismatch and make DTC flip it's shit. On the other hand, if DTC has some smarts to it it would determine what is a normal front/rear speed differential on the fly and use that as the "norms" for that use cycle. I do know that if speed correction is done in the ECU, that does not hinder DTC and the speedo can be calibrated spot on with no extra devices. I think GuzziDiag, etc., in conjunction with $12 worth of cables allow you to perform a couple of mods to your ECU. DucatiDiag definitely did - I turned off closed loop, disabled the flapper and corrected the speedo in about one hour. Removing the exhaust valve servo, O2 sensors, capping their connectors, etc., took another hour. OT, I know, just offering my experience as a data point.

I asked 120clock about the two sensors and here is the reply
"
Hi Art,
for that bike you would need to calibrate the signal before it enters into the gauge cluster with SpeedoDRD model U1. But check to make sure your gauge has a dedicated speed signal wire first before ordering (most do).
Thanks,"

Has anyone installed one on a streetfighter?

You can fix this via software using tune ECU and it opens up the ability to flash a slip on tune or if you feel so inclined tune the bike yourself. May not be the direction you want to go but I figured I would throw it out there.
