Re: (00996Duke)

Hi,
Before I bought my Duc, I had a Laverda that had the same "brain" as a 916. I had an ultimap chip in it as well. It had an adapter that went between the chip and the socket. It wouldn't run with the stock chip untill I took the adapter out. You might check to see if that is your problem.

Sawdust.

Re: noob Question (00996Duke)

could it be simply that battery just drained out/sulfated regardless of chip swap?

Re: noob Question (autostrada1)

Most aftermarket chips come with a coating on the pins that must be cleaned off prior to inserting them into the socket. I't is possible you transfered some of that coating from the new chip to the socket when you installed it. Then afterward, when you plugged the old chip back in it wouldn't make contact because of that coating.
I'd look at the sockets under magnification and clean both the pins and sockets with isopropynal or contact cleaner and then reinstall and shee if she'll start.

Re: noob Question (00996Duke)

Listen to hear if the fuel pump is firing-up when you turn on the ignition key.

The Eprom chip has a orientation notch on one side so if you didn't notice this, you may have installed it backwards, in which case the fuel pump won't run.

Also, you need to wait at least a minute after shutting off the bike before you pull the chip.

Take care to not bend any of the 28 pins when inserting them. Slightly inserting 14 on one side first, and springing them to insert the other side into their sockets is the way I did it.

Re: noob Question (Shazaam!)

On the 749 i wanted to fit a performance chip which had previously been used on another bike for 400 miles only. However my dealer says that once a chip has been used on a bike, it develops a memory for that bike. However he also made mention of using the red master key in the ignition when new chip is fitted as apparently this reprograms the bike back to original. Then go back to using standard ignition key (black). does the 996 have keys like these, if so try it.

No bikes with an ignition immobilizer (red keys) have "chips" that can be swapped. The entire ECU can be changed and the red key will come into play then. The "chip" being referenced in the start of this post is a swapable micro chip that companies like Ultimap and others offered re reprogramed versions for different mods. that are used in earlier versions of the ECU in FI Ducati's. They fit inside the computer, on 749/999 you swap entire unit.

Well i figured it all out the chip was in backwards and i had to remove this piece between the UM chip and the port then put in the 996 chip, bike doesnt idle right but its because alot of lines arent connected properly it was nice to bring her to life.
Thanks for the help guys
