Hi Guys,

I couldn't find any information on my problem, so I'm hoping maybe someone would have an idea of the cause.

I have an 07 F4 with FBF's Silmoto pipes, and an ECU programmed by FBF last year.

After the pipes and the ECU were installed, when starting up the bike it would sputter for a minute or two before getting to a smooth idle. I lived with it and didn't complain to FBF since the idling would smooth out.

Now this year it seems that the sputtering would sometimes happen when I'm at a stop light and at times the bike would even shut off.

One thing I noticed is that it wont happen when I downshift and stop, the idling stays nice and smooth. But if I hold the clutch down and go straight to first gear and use my brakes to stop then the sputtering would start and sometimes my bike would stall.

So what do you think? Is it my ECU? Any help would be great!

Nicolino...if you want your PC III dialed in I can recommend Chip Lincoln at Freedom Powersports in Atlanta. He knows Ducatis and MVs and has a new DynoJet dyno. He also has access to our friend Michael (ex-FBF race team tech and MV master) for Q&A (Michael now works for a scooter importer supporting their dealer network). Much closer for you then Pennsylvania.

You can call and talk to Chip at 770-974-6000

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.
