2018 F4 1000 Bodis full, MV ECU install

Finally had time over last week to fit my full bodis exhaust system on the 2018 MV F4. Installation was a breeze I have never had such a easy install on a full system throughout all the years of my bikes props to bodis for such a killer system props to evolution IT and design corse for the parts hook up to USA.

The ECU was underneath the gas tank and frame and was not easy to change you have to be very careful but being a master Tech of all makes and models of cars and semis I was able to remove it easily but I can see this being a major problem for a non mechanical guy.

The bike runs absolutely flawless with the ECU provided from MV Augusta. After it warms up I do have a slight erratic idle...not a high idle just very light erratic idle, which I will be plugging in to my Texa for further adjustments and reset on my TPS.

If anybody here has any information on what I should do with the texa or if there is a idle adjustment or tps reset please chime in. I have owned a texa for years and that's what I fix diesel trucks and diesel boats with I just ordered the motorcycle software and cable kit so I can use my own computer the bike.

I had to do a small fabrication to the lower radiator bracket to clear the number 4 header on the right side. Other than that, installation was a absolute pleasure.

I know I'm probably missing a bunch of details if anybody has any questions I will be more than happy to answer!!

There should be a TPS reset in your Texa software and I will wager this is the source of your erratic idle.....anytime you install a new ECU the TPS value must be registered before the bike will run properly.

MVs are easy to work on !!! So unlike Hondas and some others that were never designed to be worked on !!

I've had many bikes but none have sounded like this! I am extremely happy with the sound with the baffles in. The decel burble is to die for.. , I just can't get off of it! the throttle response is seamless and exhaust is so crisp

I don't believe so. You need to get a "Servo Buddy" from Healtech (or someone) to fool the ECU into thinking the exhaust valve system is there and working.

The very first bikes with the valve (2010~11?) just turn on a small warning light, but later bikes will throw a dash fault code. Some models you can just remove the cables...but the actuator needs to be there.

At least that's the way I understand it.

My experience with the full Bodis system and race ECU was the CO level had to be adjusted and that was it,ran sweet after that.
But my bike is a 2009 1078,hopefully your model bike only needs the same adjustment.

I used to have a 2011 F4 with full bodis. Awesome exhaust and the sound is incredible! All I had to do to eliminate the error was to disconnect the cables at the exhaust valve.
Now I have a 2016 F4rr with a QD exhaust and for quite a while just disconnecting the cable worked fine. Then for whatever reason the limits for the exhaust valve servo were lost and the servo was pulling so hard on the cables that it eventually damaged the servo and the error came back. I tried the a healtech exhaust valve eliminator but could never get it to work. Seems they are hit or miss. I ended up going with ECU Studio and no more error.

So from my experience, if you are looking to not spend much money then disconnecting the cables is the simplest way to go...as long as you
