Hi guys wondering if I could get some help!

Ive been reading the threads and understand the closed loop and open loop system but I’m stuck!
I bought a 1098 with stock ecu, air filter exhaust with Akra carbon slip ons, the bike sounded amazing and ran ok but I felt it was lacking power. I then invested in a full 70mm termi system, dp race ecu, pc3 and a k&n hiflo air filter, fitted it to the bike myself as I’m an Aussie living in Mexico City and had the bike in Ducati service for a few things and in the end had to re do it all myself. So I’m on my own as I don’t trust Ducati here!
Ok back to the bike! Now with everything fitted, the bike won’t idle cold so I need to up the revs to warm it before it idles, also there’s a flat spot between 2000 and 3000 rpm. It definitely doesn’t sound as good and run as well as the stock exhaust with Akra slip ons, so I’m wondering what more is there to do? I read somewhere the valves may need re shimming and heaps of talk about getting a Dyno tune, but finding someone to dyno tune a Ducati 1098 in Mexico City might be like finding a needle in a haystack, not to mention will they do a good job!
Any ideas guys as to why it’s behaving this way and what I need to do to get it running well?
Would love the feedback and held if it’s available.
Dan.

So what has the dealer done to the bike and what have you redone afterwards?

Some more info and maybe some can help you getting started on your upcoming endeavors. :)

Check the map on the ecu and do a reset of the Throttle Position Sensor.

+1 What Svensken said, get rid of that piggie bag.
