I just received word that Rexxer can now communicate fully with the ECU in the Scrambler.

If you are not familiar, this is the ONLY way to alter the fueling characteristics of this model that is reliable, effective and economical.

There are two options available...

This first is to purchase a Rexxer Tuning Module and Cable for personal use (cost is $600). This will enable you to re-flash the ECU as many times as you wish (for your particular bike only), and to be able to also control a wide variety of other parameters (such as reset of service indicators).

The second option is to send your ECU into Rexxer and they will re-flash for you. The cost for this service is $300 (one time), and you must provide them with the particulars of your setup (air filter type, exhaust type, etc.)
There are also optional services that can be programmed for additional cost, they are:

Immobilizer Disable - $100
O2 Sensor Disable
Exhaust Valve Disable - $100
Custom Dash Display Message - $100

Information on this (US only) is available here...

It's possible to argue that $600 doesn't really constitute economical, and that having to get ones ECU re-flashed at $300 after changing pipes or air filter is not particularly convenient or cheap.

I'm sure it's a great product but I am sceptical about any claim emphasised in capitals that suggests there is only one solution to a problem. There will be many.

Flashing an ecu is the best solution. It is just that Rexxer is the only one to crack the code. I had a reflash done on my R1 it really did everything they claimed. Was a completely different motorcycle when I got the ecu back. For 300 to pick up let's say 5hp that's pretty cheap. The difference will be in the midrange. Not expecting much top end change on a air cooled motor.

Right now, there is only one. The statement as made "effective, reliable & economical" is meant to be taken in combination.

There are others that are "effective", but not necessarily "reliable" (and so on). This is the only solution that currently exists that has all three merits, and probably will remain so, as there has been no other company over the years that has cracked Ducati's code (to my knowledge).

The change - on this particular motor - even using the stock intake and exhaust is 3-4 hp and the best part is that the increase is consistent all the way to redline.

A good pipe and less restrictive intake will yield more - I would think that 5 hp is attainable.

And this exhaust? Can your ECU re-map accomodate this?

Ducati Scrambler 2 into 1 CR-T Exhaust by SC-Project

I do not have information on less restrictive intakes. What would you suggest?

Stu

Hi Stu,

Not MY ecu... YOUR ecu. This product reprograms the fuel maps in your ecu, optimizing fueling for your unique set of modifications.

Also, please know I have no professional relationship with Rexxer, I'm just a Scrambler owner like you.

As for intakes, I would suggest that a free-er flowing air filter, such as a K&N, would be a good match for your SC Project exhaust.

I don't see anything referencing the scrambler yet. Do you have a better link?
How did hear about it?

Email from the president of Rexxer USA, I've had communication with him for several months now.

Awesome. Rexxer is big in the rest of the ducati world. You folks that are having a tough time battling the lean mapping from 0-4k RPM, stay tuned.

Here's a dyno run showing before/after - please keep in mind that this reflects just the stock intake and exhaust...

As you can see, a solid 4hp gain - all the way to redline!

Wow... 78 HP with stock airbox and muffler? That's impressive. Love the power to weight ratio on this bike. Reminds me of a newer/better version of my old Hawk GT (NT650).

Just think what you could get with a decent pipe and free flowing intake!

sounds like fun!

for 600 bucks, do they provide a tuned up map together with the hardwares?

and when I go in for service, will the Duc guys notice that I have "jailbroken" my Duc ECU?

Again if we are talking value to hp. A slipon can range 1300 to 500 you may see 1-3 hp increase and not have a optimal air fuel ratio. I have been looking into air filters K&N nothing yet but BCM has two street and race. No one seem to carry them in the US.
Tony do you know where the ecu is located? Fairly easy to remove and mail in.

If you purchase the unit, instead of sending your ecu to them, mapping of your choice will be provided.

The ecu is under the seat - in plain view. It is located between the battery and under seat storage area. It can be removed in minutes.
