Fits many 2006 and later Ducati (with closed loop ECM). The Ducati XiED(r) is a variable AFR design that lets you set the fuel mixture for any Ducati using O2 sensor P/N 518.104.22.168A. See the Compatibility List on the Home>Find My Bike>Ducati page.
A very simple adjustable AFR device for your bike requiring nothing more than a small screwdriver. This is based on our simple plug-n-play fuel management upgrade specifically designed for most Ducati bikes. Nightrider's unique patented design* works with your existing OEM O2 sensor and ECM allowing richer fuel mixtures. Riders can quickly and simply richen the closed loop fuel mixture from the stock 14.6:1 to a 14.3-13.7:1 AFR range.
Nightrider's advanced patented design works inline with the narrow band O2 sensor and ECM to richen the fuel mixtures. Riders can quickly and simply richen the closed loop fuel mixture on your engine from the stock 14.6:1 to 14.3-13.7:1 AFR. The ViED's can add up to 8% more fuel to the engine in closed loop operating mode than a similar unequipped vehicle. Typically there is also indirect richening of open loop fuel mixture's through the learning mode or long term fuel trim action, ensuring these richer 13.8-12.5:1 AFR's are also adjusted in heavy/full throttle situations.
This richer fuel mixture results in benefits that can include:
• Cooler exhaust temperatures
• Reduced engine temperatures
• Improved throttle response
• Less engine ping
• Reduced low RPM engine surge
Some bikes are equipped with two O2 sensors. This requires the purchase of 2-Ducati XiED.
Some vendors are telling riders they can reliably manipulate a narrow band O2 sensor to control closed loop AFR's at 13.0:1 AFR. Based on the design limits of narrow band O2 sensors and design limitations of closed loop ECM, it is not possible for the ECM to maintain accurate mixture control at this fuel mixture. Your vendor should be able explain the true limitations of closed loop mixture modification. Here is a hint: Nightrider holds the Patent (U.S. Patent 7,805,236) for the most successful inline enrichenment device in use on all motorcycles. Other devices are either violating our Patent (including another Ducati device) or have licensed our technology. Ask us how XiED(r) really works!
