Hi there!

So i own a 1090RR 2012,and i have found a hp corse hydroform exhaust,only problem is,it is on a 1078RR 2009.Will it fit?

If i buy a new one,will it run ok on a oem ecu?Also what is PCV and TPS you are all talking about?

Last but not least,where do you buy material for your agustas,preferebly in europe?Here in Slovenia there is a 6 month waiting period for a rear disc break,yes you read that correct,6 month ??

Thanks for any reply!

Welcome to MV ownership.
I can't help you with the exhaust questions but as for parts in Europe I suggest using Evolution Bike in Italy for parts or Designcorse in the UK.
They will have everything you need and supply you a lot faster than the 6 months!!

@Boeder1090RR: The 1078 and the 1090 have the same configuration and engine. The exhaust should fit. As for tuning, when doing an entire system you change the airflow enough that an ECU tuning is in order.

As for PCV and TPS and any other technical issue, please download your Frame, Engine, and Parts manual from Donsy's website here:

...and then give Dons a big hug nest time you see him....

Hi there, cannot help regarding the fit of the exhaust.
In answer to your other queries - PCV refers to power commander 5, an additional piece of electronic equipment, that allows a dyno tuner to alter the fueling by altering the signals from the ecu. People add it because they can’t crack the ecu codes.
TPS is throttle position sensor reset, needs to be done by using diagnostic software whenever a change is made to the electronic components.

Quite a few people are happy to run the race ecu, which is used when the lambda sensor is removed.

If the ECU in your bike is a Magneti Marelli 5SM or 1.6M (16M), then they are quite tuneable.

OF course, knowing where you are on this Big Blue Marble would help us help you with that.

So if i have 5SM or 1.6M i only need power comander?
If I buy race ecu than no need for powecomander?

Still waiting if anyone knows about the exhaust,tnx guys for your your replys.

Oh Yea,in from Slovenia,a little cuntry next to Italy and Austria.

NO, you misunderstand.
The Power Commander is an add-on unit that only affects fueling. It cannot change timing or other engine parameters.

Changing timing is the key to fixing some running issues.


Being in Slovenia, your options are limited I'd assume.

For parts and cross reference try Startwin trading in Belgium https://shop.startwintrading.com/en/products/b4 they have or can get most parts and the exploded diagrams and part numbers help towards checking what parts fit and where, they show your model.

Gents, just to clarify - there should be no problem with the 'Slip-On' (with some mods) however the 1078 (Gen-1) Manifold will not fit due to positioning of the counter-weight crank shaft at the front of the block. The Gen 2 manifold/s extend slight further (are a different shape) to provide room.

The 990/1090 (and 920) Manifolds are a single-complete exhaust up to and including the CAT. To deploy a Hydroform slip-on, you need to either cut-replace the Cat with something like Inox Link pipe - this would give you a 4-2-1 or replace the entire manifold to slip-on array.

I had one on my 990R ...and am deciding what to do with my 1090RR

Cheers

When you do get an exhaust and need a tuner, the rapidbike evo gives good results and can control timing, idle etc
First I've heard that the Rapidbike can control or adjust the timing tables....:popcorn:

Injector timing tables maybe??? Didn't know the Rapidbike could change Ignition timing??? :popcorn:

Depends on software level you pay for, I just went for "EVO" and the tune was fine, much better than the factory "race" ECU I tried first, final results were +12bhp at the wheel from full exhaust, new filter, snorkel removal.

If you go for "Race" that Rapidbike does ignition:

I see that now...and they have a US distributor, too.

But they don't offer the "race" version for many models....including mine

Maybe email them and express interest ... Im sure its just a default software map that needs generating for the model/year, maybe the wiring harness if not the same ECU as already supported models.

They are adding new stuff all the time, I see the changes when the software on my laptop autoupdates.

If you have a lambda still in you can use that for the auto-tune function to fine tune the map as you ride. So you start with base map, then dyno setup to get "near enough" then just ride the bike. Over say 100 miles it populates a correction table that you can review and apply to your main map until its perfect.

Thanks for filling us in @bogie

I have a Microtec with wide band lambda auto tune on my SPR..... I have a Microtec for my Brutale, but am running the MV Corse Kit ECU at this time and am very happy. (5SM Microtec is for sale)

I can understand why they wouldn't offer much for the older 1.6M ECUs (they don't offer "Race" for any of those models), They also don't offer "Race" for any pre-2010 models. Only EVO. Those bikes use the 5SM ECU.

Looks like Dimsport doesn't have a suitable, tuneable (ignition mapping etc, like what the "Race" has) ECU for any pre-2010 bikes.

Of course, the small and aging market for those probably doesn't make it worth while. How does the pricing of the"Race" Dimsport/RapidBike ECU compare to a Microtec?

That makes sense re support for the pre 2010 bikes :(

the Rapidbike EVO in UK is about £350 and the race about £500, probably similar for you guys, maybe a bit more in $USD so really good value compared to the Microtec. You can add on quick shifter etc as option.

The Microtec (I think) is a full replacement ECU though, whereas the Rapidbike is a piggy back, you still need the original on the bike and on later models will need something like the Healtec exhaust valve eliminator to suppress the error from de-cat etc.

At least owners of the later bikes have another option when fitting full systems, as you cant get Microtec for them as it cant do the ABS....
