Race Ducati 1198R ECU swap and chassis upgrades taking bike to next level of handling ability

Posted May 11th, 2016 in Ducati, ECU Remap, Engineering.

This race-spec Ducati 1198R is owned by a local race team from Lincoln; we’ve tuned the engine for them and after their first test session the bike was back with us after an issue (which was down to the ECU). We fitted our own ECU and we’re happy now – it seems the original had […]

Ducati 1098 Streetfighter ECU remap – an owner emails his thoughts…

Posted April 14th, 2016 in Ducati, ECU Remap, Owner's Words.

The Ducati Streetfighter is, er, a proper monster of a motorcycle. But it can be made better with an ECU remap to iron out its power delivery a little. Sim brought his in earlier this year, and was kind enough to drop us an email with his thoughts shortly afterward. Cheers mate! From: Sim Bellandini Sent: […]

2012 Ducati Multistrada with Mivv exhaust ECU remap – beautiful job!

Posted March 31st, 2016 in Ducati, ECU Remap.

They’re queuing up at the door! This second Ducati 1200 Multistrada we remapped recently couldn’t have been more different than the first; it turned out beautiful. We plugged in to the ECU, sorted out the emissions nonsense (lambda switch off, secondary air etc) and then sorted the fuelling. Generally, these engines run very lean and […]

Ducati 1200 Multistrada ECU remap – halted midflow because of suspected throttle body issues…

Posted March 29th, 2016 in Ducati, ECU Remap.

This Ducati Multistrada came in for an exhaust change followed by ECU remap. Its owner is a regular customer who’s been coming to us for years and his words were; “Can you just liven it up a bit, get the best out of it maybe…?” He’d bought a sorted full exhaust system (Leo Vince tubes and Termi’ […]

Ducati 600 Pantah engine rebuild – a labour of love, and not for the faint-hearted…

Posted March 25th, 2016 in Ducati.

Now in amongst a sea of shiny new bikes getting their ECUs attended to there’s always room for a bit of nostalgia. This lovely bit of air-cooled architecture is a 600cc Ducati Pantah engine, out of a TT2 chassis. The owner races a Honda CB450 at classic events and wants to move on and, having […]

180bhp Ducati 1198R engine strip and rebuild after a full season (and a bit) wide open…

Posted January 25th, 2016 in Ducati, Engine Tuning.

This engine belongs in a race Ducati owned by a local team. We’ve been looking after and tuning their motors for years (as we do many) and this time of year our engine shop is flat out with rebuilds ready for the coming season. The team had some solid results last year – finishing third […]

Ducati Scrambler ECU remap – an owner emails his thoughts…

Posted December 23rd, 2015 in Ducati, ECU Remap.

The owner of the Ducati Scrambler we remapped a few weeks ago (Pete) was kind enough to drop us an email after he’d racked up a few miles. It seems many owners complain of an awful bottom end power delivery, so our first job was to disconnect the lambda sensor, fit one of our BSD […]

Ducati Scrambler ECU remap – the first one! And the snatchy bottom end is cured.

Posted November 25th, 2015 in Ducati, ECU Remap.

This turned out really well. Generally it seems the feeling is that the Ducati Scrambler is a bit snatchy at the bottom end – we’ve had a few enquiries about ECU remapping and this is what the owners are telling us. The owner of this one (he’d fitted end-cans) stayed overnight in Peterborough and let […]

It’s that time of year again, when you think about a winter project and the MAN CAVE  is brought into life and we at BSD are here to help. Mark has been heavily involved in classic Ducatis for many years and is passionate about keeping them on the road, so if you need engine work carrying out, […]

2011 Ducati 796 Hypermotard (with Zard exhaust and Pipercross filter) ECU remap – running leaner than a church mouse’s leaving-do!

Posted September 28th, 2015 in Ducati, ECU Remap.

This Hypermotard finished up with 80-odd horsepower, but when it came in it was running massively lean everywhere – to the point we were struggling to get it on par. The lambdas had been done away with via the Zard exhaust, so we switched ’em off in the software but it was still lean… The […]
