I'm sick of this 749 and I think it'll run better if I stick the UK version ecu or the UK map.
Anyone know where I can get it or how I can program the UK map myself?

Nope, it won't. The bike meets Euro 2 emissions regulations, which is the same standard here. So the fuel map is going to be almost identical. Yea, I'm sure there are some small differences since they have slightly higher octane fuel available at the pump, without ethanol like here. So even if you could score that map, it wouldn't work any better since we don't have anything else but 91 + 10% ethanol available. If the bike runs like shit, its most likely not the map. The stock maps run good.

Thanks Tye. Always glad to read yer advice.
ACS team & owner told me it's not compression issue. As you know, I've gotten it all back together and still have that rev limiter issue (or feels like a rev limiter. seems to be what everyone is calling it).
Gonna bring it over to 'em tomorrow to have a looksy.
What about TPS and ECU reset? Seen a few of those issues around. It wouldn't hurt to do those right? Also, I'm in the process of ordering a pair of coils so to procure possible problem I'm having along with the TPS & ECU reset. The last resort I have are these and if it's still a bit nutty, I have to count my loses. Can't put anymore $$$, I could have 3 bikes by now :(

Thanks man, I'll keep the post updated.

Could be a TPS problem for sure. I'd for sure check that out. But 90psi isn't even remotely close to proper compression. So IDK if I'd trust those ACS guys if they say its OK.

Do you do your own work? If so, start with the basics, valve check, TPS check, throttle body sync, spark plugs. Once you know the bike is correct at this level, check with Bobby at Houston Superbikes about reflashing the ECU with a DP Race map. But only after you know everything else is in spec.
Or you can check with Guzzidiag users and see if there's a DP Race map you could reflash yourself.

Yes and sometimes bring it over to a specialist (not dealership). I've done a lot of work on my own (thanks to Tye also) but what I haven't done the valve adjustment on my own (a bit intimidating).
Yep, those sound really easy to do. The specialist will be ordering a new clutch pack and have it ready by this Friday. Supposedly, I'm missing one clutch plate (friction plate) and it's got 26k +/- miles on the original clutch. So...gonna take care of that and it's off to a new home for $5k.
I've spent way way way too much on this model Ducati and I'll miss posting here coz I'm never buying a Ducati again. Well...maybe a Monster 696 or the 1 liter model but that's not anytime soon.
What do you think about that clutch thing? Here's a post I found a while back: http://www.ducati.org/forums/technical/58957-power-loss-under-load.html

It's running. Changed the clutch pack and it is surprisingly faster than its ever been.
The 7 plate's teeth were missing tabs and contact patch were gone. Running metal to metal. The other 9 plates were gone too.
