Are any of you already familiar with the JPDiag28 program offered here?

JPDiag

I plan on getting the software set up for the Scrambler once the software writer makes it available for the ECU.

This will be my first Ducati, so I'm not 100% sure how it works, but I would assume it's like using diagnostic software for other bikes in that you can change the fuel map with .csv files full of numbers. But have any of you used it to verify that it's true you can modify and reflash fuel maps?

When I had my Speed Triple, Triumph released an updated map to help smooth out the throttle and it was really easy for me to just reprogram the ECU myself using free software like this. That way I didn't have to go to a dealership and pay them.

I would not expect to have to pay for an updated map if a manufacturer has released one to make the bike run better.

On another line of thought I wonder if there will also be an updated map for those who have the race Termi attached?

Tony, let me know what you hear. I've already bought an paid for the race termi low! I'm a little concerned...
I think I have read that the map that comes with the Termi makes the bike smoother anyhow. Maybe getting rid of the cat allows a much free flowing and better breathing engine.

Those with the race Termi who have there bikes might want to comment?

I would not worry Pete

Thanks, I read somewhere else that the termi helps with the refueling. still hope they sort it out fast. Off to dream about the sight of my scrambler box! I bought a box cutter in orange awaiting its debut...

I've noticed that none of the actual owners who have taken delivery of production bikes seem to have mentioned any fueling issues. His statement seemed a bit vague, so I kind of wonder if what he said there is correct or if Ducati was just telling him that there is a new map out there.

I've been riding mine for a few weeks now.
I was pretty worried before the bike was delivered, because of all the reviews about the poor fuelling. My bike before was a Honda Cbf 500 which is a inline 2 and very smooth at idle, off idle, everywhere. And i hate bikes with snatchy throttle's.
So i was planing to get a throttle tamer or different sprockets to fit the scrambler. But after riding the bike for the first time i realised there is no need. The throttle response is sensitive but actually pretty good. After getting used to it like in 10-15 minutes or so. I loved it!
If there will be a new map to smooth the response, I may not even reflash it. So I don't think you guys should worry at all, but of course it's everyone's own taste.

I can't agree with previous person. The throttle is very poor under 3.500. You can get used to it fairly quickly, but it is snatchy and it feels very uneven. Imo it definitely feels like they haven't tuned it correctly, so I'm hoping for a new fuel map. If that doesn't happen, new exahust and some play around on ecu/powercommander or whatever will happen in the near future.

Again, for most people it might be fine, but tbh I'm just expecting a bit more, plus I also have to run the bike at low speeds a lot (so notice it) as I live in London.

During my test i found the fuel map very smooth!
I tested the bike in the Rome traffic and i had no problems with the throttle response.
I think this problem is related to the different emission rules between the countries, don't you think?
I also had a Monster 1100 but this Scrambler seems to be smoother on the on/off throttle response!

I've heard that the throttle can be snatchy at lower speeds, but when I took the demo out for a ride I didn't find it snatchy at all and I was riding at fairly low speeds around town. I found it to be better than my Guzzi which is fly-by-wire and hard to keep smooth. However it did have a termi (without baffle!) fitted, so whether this had any bearing on it I can't say. I'll update when I get mine next week :)

I would also hope if Ducati are aware of any 'issues' that a remap should be free for those who already have the bike!

I too I tested the bike in Rome (probably the same bike of Basilisco!) and I found the throttle responsive but smooth. I was looking into this exactly because I read some reviews (mostly from US) mentioning this issue. But I found the power delivery quite good (I am selling a KTM 690, and that is not smooth at all, believe me!)
It could be that the press bikes in US have not been refreshed? I am pretty sure the test ride bikes in Europe by now are the final ones. So maybe the bikes delivered now have already the new (or final) map? Will check with Ducati Roma (this is Ducati owned, and not a dealer) next time I am there
ciao
