Installation of the US Exhaust:
Yup, I definitely will get him something for his help. He actually is more of a family member already as he is very close with my family.Great job! Buy your neighbor a nice bottle of the best
Did the dealer forget to remove the plastic wrap off the upper radiator? What's that white piece on the left side?
Thanks for the advice Renzo! I'll be doing a quickie ride tomorrow morning. I'll try to post pics!Yes you'll be ok to ride, but don't romp on it. The CEL is on because it senses an open circuit at the valve, not because something is actually wrong.
Now I would imagine a tune is necessary and that's why I said to take it easy.
We actually tried doing this but we weren't able to get rid of the engine light. We might have been using the wrong spring, or we might have installed it improperly. Would you be kind enough to take a pic of how you did the spring hack? But only if it won't be a hassle for you since I know that you would have to remove the lower fairing if you do this.this happened to my bike also when i installed the full akra and took of the exhaust servo cable.. i thought if i wouldnt disconnect the servo wire it wouldnt throw the check engine light... what i did is i put a spring on the end of the exhaust flapper cable to trick the servo motor and made it think that it is still connected to the flapper . then started the bike after and no more check engine light. running the bike for 200kms now and still theresno check engine light... hope this helps. just make sure to secure the end of the cable that it doesnt catch anything will using the bike.
this pic here looks like the radiator has a white plastic wrap on it - or a cover on the endYup, I definitely will get him something for his help. He actually is more of a family member already as he is very close with my family.
Regarding the plastic wrap, I can't seem to find the pic you are referring to. Either I'm going blind or I need a bigger screen! Hehehe.
Do you have a part number for this? When I asked the parts guy at a Ducati dealer, he said that he had not heard of it. I'd like to get it if it's available because that would be an ideal location to charge something very small like a spare gopro battery on longer rides. Basically I'd plug the (battery tender to usb charger) into the tender that you're referring to.I'm curious about why you put on the Battery Tender leads at the battery. Ducati makes its own nifty little tender that plugs directly in to a port, which is under the rear seat, under the little plastic door there. Pull out the port, plug in the tender, and you're done. Very slick!
