Rapidbike EVO

wondering if anyone out there has used the RapidBike FI/ignition management system on a Ducati Scrambler? I'm considering it to help alleviate the snatchy throttle at low RPMs. I've read a couple of review and they seem positive but looking for y'all's input.

I have it on my bike, now with no other module to compare it to, I can only say that it seems to work great. It keeps the bike tuned to the conditions, elevation, outside temp, riding style etc. I have no popping on decelerating with and aftermarket slip on.I bought mine through SHIFT TECH, they've got great customer support, real cool people to deal with. Its a little bit of a B***H to install as far as getting the connections tucked in neatly, and I notched my under seat box to allow the connection to not be so tight
If you don't like the choppy throttle, first try a Throttle Tamer, its about 20bucks, and take about 10 minutes to put on....
Good luck, Ride Safe.

Thanks. I have heated grips and Throttle Tamer doesn't work because grips and throttle tube are one piece.

I just installed the RapidBike Evo on mine. This bike is a bit snappy, but I feel like the fuel ratios are much better now and smoother throughout the powerband. I have the full SC Project exhaust and the popping on deceleration was crazy, and now with the RapidBike Evo it is significantly less. I don't think it really helped with on/off throttle.

Before fitting the Rapidbike Evo did your bike have poor "unstable" fueling in the 2500 to 4500 rev range on steady or part throttle? If so did this module fix that?

Oh and, did anyone fit this themselves and if so how long did it take to find all the connectors and finish the job?
cheers

I had no fueling issues....I Installed mine, Its foolproof to install. Its a little finicky getting the connections tucked in nicely under the side covers. Took maybe an hour or so total. I did a little work modifying the storage box to make it fit more to my liking, not necessary to do.

Just had EVO installed

I was having issues with fuelling especially on deceleration and sometimes on initial takeoff. To the point had stalled the bike a few times due to slight backfire on deceleration and put me in a dangerous situation where i stalled in-front of a car on an intersection. Spoke to a local Ducati specialist mechanic and he recommended the Rapid EVO. Had installed, adjusted and wow what a difference. smooth thru the whole rev range, no more surging and more importantly no stalling. only gripe is it is a bit touchy on the throttle, will be asking if it is possible to adjust the sensitivity in the ECU. Overall very happy with the choice to install.

Hey SAP, what year is your bike?
