Just a quick update as I鈥檓 getting there...
The 1299S dash was swapped out for a 1299 base just to makes things a bit easier. I also managed to get the BBS off the same bike to make things even easier. Once you fit the correct BBS, the amount of errors become visible. You get the ABS warning on, obviously no abs or traction at this point. I managed to get a 1299 base wiring harness, abs pump and the imu sensor for a really good price from the states. That turned up last week and happy to see that things are nearly back to normal. I now have DWC and cornering abs. I still have the unknown device which I鈥檓 hoping will disappear when the 1299 ecu turns up and gets fitted.
If all goes well, I鈥檒l get the bike mapped, and the 1299 auto blipper set up for the 959 map. I鈥檓 now at the stage where at key on I get, the abs and traction control idiot lights flashing like they should be. The mileage even though isn鈥檛 correct (mine鈥檚 3,190 miles) is at least synced and Ducati can reset the mileage for a small fee. The rider mode is still flashing as it鈥檚 expecting to see the 1299 auto blipper which is controlled by the ecu.
I鈥檒l update again in a few weeks time.

Yes it does. Re read my last post if you like. It does say the IMU is fitted. I know it works because I turned on the bike before fitting and the Inertial sensor warning light came on. Went off after fitting the 1299 loom, abs and IMU. 馃槈
And yes, the cornering abs does work.

So in the end you installed a 1299 dash, BBS, ECU, and harness & sensors?
Yes, all working as it should except the running. 25% overfuelling just on start up which isn鈥檛 surprising. The bike鈥檚 going to get re mapped soon once I鈥檝e managed to replace the O2 sensor bosses with 18mm ones so he can map each cylinder properly. He also needs to remap the auto blipper to suit the engine.
No additional sensors are needed, just the IMU. The other 959 sensors stay in place.

And to close this thread off鈥 Got the bike re mapped today by P3 Tuning in Liverpool. Running super smooth and I鈥檇 say even better then the bike came as standard. Dumped the 1299 shifter / blipper as it was worn out inside and replaced with the Translogic unit for the 1299. Shifts and blips really well and feels as smooth as they do with the std 959 shifter.
All sensors working as they should.
Been a long, long project but got there in the end.
I鈥檒l post the dyno results when I receive them if anybody would like to see it.

Here鈥檚 the graph after the re map. Notice how poorly it ran with the 1299 un mapped ecu! :) 45 bhp.
Also fitted the +/- L/H paddle switch from the 1299S. This worked straight away without any dealer intervention so I presume the person who the dash belonged to before I bought it, had this setting activated. Just ordered the DDA+ and will get that fitted up soon ready for some track action next year.

Rectangle Slope Font Plot Parallel

140 measured at the back wheel but with a much smoother curve which you feel when you ride the bike. The dyno guys were saying that this is a bout right as the Tri Option race bikes were putting out 144 with the Akras fitted.
Best of all, the lads said, don鈥檛 bother with an aftermarket shifter / blipper as it would be impossible to improve on the 1299 setup.

I don鈥檛 know, man. Call me Eeyore or an old curmudgeon but that seems like a ton of faffing about for just a little gain. I鈥檇 rather spend that cash on rounds of beers with riding buddies after track days together.

Hey Ian, I'm in the process of rebuilding a mangled 959 that I picked up cheap and I'd like to do a tft swap to it. I read some of your postings about how you had done the swap and successfully done so with zero warning light malfunctions along with all the extra features that come with the IMUs capabilities i.e. cornering abs. Nice work btw, well done.
So yeah, basically I'm just here to reap the benefits from all your hard work. Lol. Would you mind listing everything you used in detail so I can ease sourcing it all? I'd appreciate it greatly.

Thank you and no problem at all鈥
Dash and Bbs off a base 1299. Miles easier if you can get the pair off the same bike as the stored mileage will coincide.
Main wiring loom and new mini loom which connects the air pressure sensor in the headlight.
IMU sensor and sensor support.
Abs pump, 1299 shifter / auto blipper. Ecu.
I think that鈥檚 about it. With the 1299 ecu fitted, the bike will just about run and will make about 45 Bhp until you get it tuned! :)

Hope this helps for starters. Any questions, just fire away鈥

Seems like a lot of effort to get the 1299 dash working, but nice job!

Was looking to do the 1199 conversion on my 959. Wanted to know if it's possible to get rid of the unknown device code?

And if anyone has a 1199 dash lying around, let me know! They seem hard to come by at the moment.

I think you鈥檇 be better off sticking with the 1299 dash. It better suits the 959. There鈥檚 no simple way to get rid of the warning light nor the Unknown device. You have to fit the job lot so all sensors can be seen.

I think you'd be better off going with an aftermarket dash that has way more to offer than just color imo. For example this i2M dash is plug-n-play and has data acquisition, gps, O2 sensor controller, and a lap timer. i2M Chrome PLUS Full Color 5" LCD Dash, Data Acquisition & GPS Lap Timer - Plug & Play - Ducati 899 / 1199 / 1299 Panigale - CHROME-PLUS-PANIGALE

I鈥檓 not sure tbh. Each to their own I suppose. Not saying what I did is the best solution but all in all it probably cost me less than 拢1K. So with the dash done and the electrics fitted, I鈥檝e been able to have a play around with tyre sizes and by using the tyre recalibration function on the 1299, I know the traction control is properly set up. I realise that the dash above has a ton more features and a cool piece of kit but personally I鈥檓 more than happy with both the look and functionally the 1299 dash offers.
