Well that could be it... lol. Bike thinks it's warmer than it is, meaning the air is less dense, so it spits in less fuel, and it runs lean.

You have nothing to lose by playing with the RB mapping. Try adding 5-10% across the board and see if it helps. It won't be perfect but will tell you if you're headed in the right direction.

A TPS reset never hurts. They can also reset your adaptation tables. I'm trying to think of what could have gone wrong when you installed the new belt covers...

I appreciate you help with this. I have been through this somany times it is frustrating. I believe this last time I was extremely thorough but if it continues I must have missed something. Have you ever had your TPS reset? Also. Is the guy correct in saying that you cant synch ride by wire throttle bodies? What about the engine braking feature on the rapidbike module. I dont remember if it was on when I installed it but it is on now and appears as though it has been on since the last time I was into the RB module.

It seems to be running ALOT better. I just have to relax and accept the normal ducati noises now but after having them really exaggerated during this endeavor I feel it will rake time. LOL. So. It seems as though I needed to turn on the pump correction feature. She feels very lively and snappy again. Like when I first uploaded the Kuk map. I'm not sure how the pump correction was turned off or why my bike seems to need it on(if others dont, I'm not sure) but it's running strong now. I appreciate all the input. I'm going to have the TPS reset on Monday and I'm going to clean the ambient air temp sensor(to try and get it more accurate. Bike has over 14k miles on it) and maby clean the mass air flow sensitive too.

I was tracing my similar issue yesterday and found an interesting Monster 821 thread discussing how it's common for the radiator fan to cut the horizontal spark plug wire. Checked mine and not cut but the wire was resting against the radiator so I re-routed.

About this pump correction, if I followed your write-up to the letter regarding custom map upload, am I good? Don't remember this step. Regardless, I was sort of having my issue before touching my RB software so pretty sure it's not an issue.

I'm not 100% sure but I might have accidentally turned that correction pump feature off causing my entire problem. As for the coil wires, I did the Aprilia coil swap to prevent the common display and/or ECU from burning up. When I did the coil swap I moved the wires away from the fans. I actually moved all wires away from moving parts and moved everything so it wasnt resting on metal. I have been kicking around the idea of making some better wires for the battery to ground/frame and another for the positive but I mainly am focused on the negative grounding field. Seems to have helped my previous bikes in some way or another.

I have a new starter and am seriously considering ordering a beefy grounding kit. Never had starter fear before but the stocker has me spooked.

Oxygen sensors

So I was getting "errors" on the dash and it looked like my vertical O2 sensor was bad for the third time. Since I'm way out of warranty and I don't like contributing to the GDP of Italy a used solution had to be found. Couldn't find any Hyper versions but I did find some from a 2015 821 Monster.

The monster uses a Continental ECU

I converted the connector. Seems to work just fine. Kuksul, what do you think the difference is. Narrow band vs. wide band?

Interesting.

It is very rare for cars to have wideband O2's and I'm not sure of any motorcycles that do. There is just no reason for it since it's an emissions device and narrowbands cost a fraction of the amount.

I do like that new one you got though - the stock Hyper sensor seemed dinky to me.
