Got it all working tonight, paid for the write function and now I'm running a termi slip on map on my new akrapovic slip ons
I'll be testing out the map to see if it works well (people say it runs pretty rich) as there is one other custom map on the ftp that is supposed to be pretty amazing. Also, on a side note, ducatidiag can remove the lambda function and also remove the immobilizer. Not sure if it's working for all models, but it does work for mine... I left the immobilizer on but took off the lambda sensor functions.
Once I switched to the other laptop everything went pretty smooth. For some odd reason it still gives me issues when I try to connect while the engine is on, but it works perfectly when I connect with the engine off. It just might be an issue with the really slow old laptop I'm using (10ish years old) hanging when the engine is on and me thinking something is wrong and not waiting long enough for it to connect. I dont really have any other PC laptop more current to test out this theory with, but I'm ok with that current results.
I connected everything up, flashed the ecu (you have to check off "force hardware compatibility" to make it work), and reset the tps. All pretty simple and I still have my stock map saved in case I ever need to revert it back to original.
The only slight freak out moment I had was when I finished flashing the ecu and all of a sudden saw the odometer at 8800 vs the 5500 reading I used to have... realized it was because it flipped it to the EU settings on reset so it was reading in KM vs Miles.
All said and done... it's cheaper than going to the dealer to reflash your ecu and you can rest your tps by yourself along with unlimited flashes. I know the 1st ecu is 100 euros and any other ecu's are discounted but I'm not sure of the discount amount.. You can also mess with some other functions like CO trim etc, but that's a bit beyond my threshold of "stuff I'm willing to toy with on my bike". If anyone is looking to reflash their MM ecu, I'd def reccomend it.
