Question Another Exhaust Flapper/Servo Thread

Yes...I know, there are at least 5 - 6 other threads on here, 20 something pages of sifting and sorting through debates and conversations. I've read them all and still lacking answers.

With all the reading I've done here and outside of this forum - the exhaust flapper is just a nuisance. It seems to be the cause of many annoying issues such as sound dampening, rpm loss when blipping, throttle response and extra hard engine braking that causes the bike to nose dive.

I've decided to go the Exhaust Servo Eliminator route. Or at least unplug the servo and place that in there to avoid throwing a light.

My only question at this point, before I go tearing into my Hyperstrada 939 is - where do I find the plug to connect that servo eliminator to? Some say under the seat and some say under left fairing.

Does anyone have a detailed installation guide for the Hypers?

It's sorta under the ECU on the right side rear of the bike. You can take off the right rear panel with 3 screws and see the motor and connector right there.

I removed my 821 motor, just one less thing to break. The 939 apparently throws a light. Both will show an error in the ECU that it is missing.

I think it's been proven without a doubt that it won't throw a code or light if you remove the servo completely. I just disconnected the spring in the exhaust housing when it was still up for debate. I plan to remove completely when I get back to my bike in a couple months.

821 will not throw a code, 939 will throw a code if the servo is removed.

As for location, Kuksul08 is on point. It's under the ECU/battery on the right side of the bike. The black cover by the seat release lock is the one you want to remove.

On my 939, it it is under the seat, just to the right (throttle side) of the ecu/battery. No need to remove any fairings.

...and you definitely need a servo eliminator to keep from throwing a code on the 939. Just a note: the latch holding the connector together is a little counter intuitive. Don't force is, it will slide apart easily when you have pressed on the right part.

Installed my eliminator on the 939 two days ago. The check engine light that came on when I disconnected the valve and prior to installing the eliminator took a few on and off cycles to finally go out.
I am very pleased with the change after disconnecting the valve. Smoother and louder.

That's great to hear. I'm stoked to get mine put on. Will have to post a video of before/after & installation of the eliminator when I do.

When you installed your duc.ee - do you need to actually remove the entire servo or just unplug the servo and plug the duc.ee in place. Before I completely ditch the servo motor I'd like to run some tests.
