Thought I would give some feed back on my MV Agusta Corse Inox Full Exhaust system with ECU installed on 1078rr

looks::mouthwate
I love the clean look with no cat. Note the different join on the down pipes. I think the stainless has an extra piece, not as clean as the Ti system, but at half the price I can live with that;)

weight:
Can't tell a difference riding. But I'm 220lb so the biggest source weight savings would be me on a diet!

Sound::guitarist
I love the new sound. Now it sounds like it looks. It is not too loud at all. If stock were volume on 4 then these are 7! I stood on the side walk while the tech test road ofter the fitting and was really pleased that it was a "nice loud" nothing obnoxious like them loud Harley's etc.

Power:
Sounds faster! can't tell if there are power gains but the power comes on much smoother.

Fueling:
So much better. I was finding it hard to get back on the throttle smoothly coming out of corners and also keeping smooth riding in low spreed traffic - all fixed now. From throttle off to slightly on is much, much better.

Heat:
In traffic the bike was always running at around 205deg. Now always around 190deg.

Strange that the #4 header is discolored a few inches out from the port like that. You'd think it would start right at the port. Looks like #3 has more color. Great way to figure A/F's before they totally turn.

The exhaust gasses exit the pipe with force and it all concentrates at the first bend in the pipe.

Andy, did you have to modify the fuel mapping? I have fitted the Corse pipes to my 1078 but still have the original cat and pipes.

Hi
I had theMV Agusta Corse Inox Full Exhaust system with ECU installed. As per this link:
http://www.designcorse.co.uk/Brutale_Exhaust/MV_Agusta_Corse_Inox_Full_Exhaust_system

As far as I know the ECU is a remapping. They did also plug the bike into a laptop at the shop after the install.

So the complete exhaust system was replaced including mufflers.
I got a great deal on parts from http://www.mvagustaofhouston.com/ (ask for Andy) the shipped across the US for me.
Thank you Andy for the information...unfortunately it is not compatible with 990R... :(

Will the ECU work with stock pipes?
No. It is designed for a free flowing exhaust system.
As far as know(and no expert) if you are just looking for more sound you could replace just the mufflers and not change the ECU as the cat provides enough back presure. But if you loose the cat you will need a new ECU.
Full system is the way to go:)

Well, in CA (as I'm sure you know) there is a new law taking effect that means motorcycles could be inspected to find EPA stamps on exhaust systems. Mine is staying stock for now.

so that would be $100 x almost every bike in CA! - nice way to make money Arnie. "The first violation could result in a fine of $50-$100 if the exhaust is not returned to stock"

"The law technically only affects 2013 and later model motorcycles" - hopefully this means my 2009 model is safe and they only start to enforce this in 2013.

But even with out this law I think this is a good statement.

"The noise pollution caused by illegally modified motorcycle exhaust systems is a major quality of life issue across the state," SB 435's author, Sen. Fran Pavley (D-Santa Monica), said in a news release issued Monday. "Basic common sense and decency dictates that when a motorcycle drives by and sets off every car alarm on the street, that is too loud.”

I agree. But I think I'll leave mine alone awhile. I could just see that being a reason/excuse for a cop to write a chickenshit ticket.
