So will the mirror block offs, the servo buddy with plug in also to get rid of the exhaust servo motor, along with a few other things. The exhaust will bolt up in place, the only thing I did seem to notice was on the right side exhaust it's slightly off but not too noticeable

Thanks for that. So how did you get around the mapping? Ive heard the dealer needs to plug the bike into the computer.

I haven't had the up map installed cause it comes with a full system, and I bought a slip on that's for a 1199 to test fit on my bike and find out for myself. I also contacted austin racing and asked them about their exhaust fir the 1199 if it'll fit the new 2014 899 and they said yes it'll fit up.

So with the termi slip ones you have fitted you haven't needed to change the mapping of the bike? I'm assuming it's only the full systems that require a map unlock.

What was the fitting like? I'm pretty handy with a spanner but I'm obviously nervous about stripping down my new bike.

Everything seems to be fine, and runs great. I don't have the exhaust valve/flapper anymore neither. I hot rid of that also and installed a Duc.EE exhaust valve eliminator. That was also for an 1199 that also plugged right in. Removing it was a piece of cake. The tricky part is getting at the bolts on the brackets towards the back, you'll need a long Allen wrench, ones with a ball tip to catch it at an angle

How long did it took you to install the slip ons? My dealer was saying about 4hours for everything including the UP map.

Not sure if I ever replied back to you about your question but in case I haven't, no I have not loaded any new maps, or the Ducati up map. Requires removing the lower fairings on both sides only, three bolts on the flange, two bolts on the rear bracket, and two bolts on the front bracket. You'll have to undo the exhaust valve cable unless you plan on getting rid of it. I got rid of mines and installed an exhaust valve eliminator. Brand is Vizitec, Duc.EE. Same thing as servo buddy,

Not sure about the up map, but I'm so use to removing my lower fairings that it only takes me no more than 5 minutes and the exhaust took me maybe half an hour the first time since I had to remove the exhaust valve cable and motor. Now I can remove and install the slip on within 15-20 minutes. So far I've removed it 4 times, don't ask me why! Haha!

Wow that's not much so an hour should be sufficient enough for the slip ons. Maybe upping the ecu would add more time since they have to get to it. Not sure where's it located in the 899s or maybe it's just plug and play. On my Monster it's under the tank and it's a pain to take the tank apart and they actually replaced the ecu with Ducati Performance ones. Sounds like you got the process down man! ;) Thank you for the info!

Regarding the new map - they upload the new mapping directly to your existing ECU. They don't swap the old ECU for a new one anymore (like they used to). Ducati found a way to better protect their intellectual property, and also prevent others from selling their stock ones.

Yeah that's what I thought so too because now it says up mapping. On my Monster the Termis came with a racing ecu that they replaced the stock ones with. So it shouldn't be that time consuming then if they'll just upload the new mapping. I think that's better because my stock ecu is just sitting in the garage now no more use.
