Hi. I have just fitted the DNA performance filter to compliment the Termignoni titanium system. My bike has the Evo ECU upgrade but with the standard filter it was way to rich. I was leaving clouds behind on hard acceleration. Only just done a 30 mile test ride so early to comment on any changes. I do think it has leaned out the fuelling which was much needed but will keep you posted in the coming weeks.

EVO ECU upgrade? Can you explain more about it? I’m not familiar.

Hi. When you fit the Ducati Termignoni, full system, the dealer will flash the ECU and upload a new fuel map to suit. This is called the EVO flash. The new exhaust system removes the catalytic converter and therefore changes the fuelling map. If you don't flash the ECU it will run real bad.

Hooe that helps?

Had the full Termy installed as well with the EVO Map (dealer did all). Not running rich and have not swapped the air filter. I'm in Colorado, so most riding is at 5,000-12,000 feet (1,200-3,600 meters) and have not experienced it running too rich. What elevation do you ride at?

Hi Hendrix.

Running fine now. No more issues.

Changing the filter is simple enough.
1. Make sure tank is empty or near empty.
2. Remove steering damper assembly. Just unbolt the 4 x M6 bolts and leave the damper still clamped.
3. Remove the small fairing plate below the steering damper assembly and remove the earth clip.
4. Remove the L/H & R/H side panels
5. Remove the front screen
6. Remove the plastic radiator surround
7. Remove rider seat.
8. Remove tank fixing (rear, under removed seat)
9. Remove the front tank mount and penny washer.
10. Use a magnet or pliers to remove the anti crush spacer from the front mount before trying to lift tank! Can confirm it's a bastard if you dont.
11. Unclip all electrical connectors to the left & R/S of the tank. I think there are three from memory.
12. Close off the two fuel taps on the L/H & R/H of the tank and unclip the fuel pipes.
13. Now grab the front of the tank and rear and start to lift from the front.
14. Once the tank is lifting from the front you will need to reach under the front and pull off the two breather pipes underneath. These are just push fit with no clips so easy enough just awkward.
15. With these removed you can lift and remove the tank and place safe somewhere.
16. Once tank is off there is a quilt that protects the electrical harness. Lift off by removing the tape fixings. Place to one side.
17. The ECU is clipped to the top of the filter cover. Slide the ecu toward the back of the bike until it comes free. Just move it to the side. No need to disconnect anything.
18. You can now remove the 6 self tapping screws that hold the cover in place. Once these are out you have access to the filter. Simply lift out the paper one and replace.
19. Rebuild in reverse!

Hope that helps. Don't do what I did and do it with a load of fuel in the tank. Try and do it when fuel is low. Your life will be easier.
