g'day all,


new member from Perth, Australia.


Purchased my first Ducati a couple weeks ago after being on Jap bikes for last 12 years. New 959 with full Akra system. I test rode the F3 800, Daytona 675 and the 959. Daytona was by far the smoothest and most comfortable ride but the 959 was just a beast I couldn't say no to. The wife is pretty happy but doesn't like the fact no bitches seat with a full exhaust ... (oops how terrible :p)


I do have the dreaded 959 starting issues which lead me to this site. Dealer is saying upmapping issue but I don't believe that and having read about it on here it's safe to say it's not just a simple re-map of my current key to fix it.


anyway look forward to reading plenty on here


thanks
Viper

Welcome to the forum. Take up this cold start issue with your dealer. Mine's (hopefully) gone away since I had my first service.

thanks all :)
