    My ‘13 PP has a full 2-into-1 Termi system. Nobody bats an eye about it. The only possible issue would be if they wanted to deny a warranty claim related to the engine but it’s out of warranty anyway at this point. Enjoy it.

    I have a 14 with full termi. It had a Rexxer load on the controller when I bought it. The dealer had no problem servicing it but wasn’t familiar with Rexxer. Without the oxy sensor they couldn’t access controller for updates. Basically Rexxer overrides it. Hasn’t been an issue but I’d ask them if they can and will access the ECU. If the load was factory Termi key they should be able to access it.

    Rear brake,even without the cat, sucks. Bleed often.

    Fuel level sensors can go out. Ducati is on like rev4. No problems on the last one.

    My keyless start sometimes fails in really high heat. If you lock the forks it’s a problem. Transmitter is under fuel cap. A bit of shade or a wet rag cools enough to get it working. If you don’t lock forks be sure you have the code to override and start without key if it overheats.

    Bought with 6k nearing 20k now and 3rd year owning. Even with a few issues I love the bike.

    Yup, those are the typical issues.

    The rear brake is fine for settling the bike or holding it on a hill. 70-ish percent of a bikes braking comes from the front anyway.

    Yes, the latest version (D?) of the fuel sensor is fine.

    The keyless start is okay, but the sensor is actually behind the dash. You can hold a dead key or the red key behind the instrument cluster to get the bike unlocked and started without entering the code. I just had my dealer cut a new active (fob) and passive (red) key with the new style key and it works much better than the original.

    I think the active key was just over $200 and the passive was $85, plus an hour or so labor to program everything.

    Ouch. I’m about to have to do this. Somewhere on my last trip, my active key vanished. I have a system, but apparently I didn’t follow it. No ‘no key’ on the dash or anything.

    Funny, I had never seen this until today. I was at Pandora's Ducati and their alarm system interferes with the bike like many others. Took the key out of the the little cubby, pushed it down near the antennae, bike turned on, stuck the key back in the cubby. Rode off, turned down the street, looked down and saw the "no key"! Shit! Opened cubby, key sitting right there. Guess the alarm was still f-in with the reception.

    I used SOS Diagnostics to get a standard key -- no chip, just ability to turn the lock cylinders. On trips, the active key stays in a pocket that does not get opened. I use the standard key to open any cylinder, and if I lose it, no biggie.

    That’s a good idea. Going one step further, you could keep a second red key under the pillion seat in case you ever loose the fob.

    Did you ever figure out the issue with the keyless ignition not working when hot? My 2013 multi keyless quits working after driving for 15 minutes until it cools down. The dealer claims they have never seen this and can't replicate the problem (even though it seems to do it most of the time for me). Figuring that I probably need to have the receiver replaced. I have replaced both batteries and the key fob with no effect.

    The code entry to start does work in all cases fortunately

    That’s a new one. Aside from bad batteries and limited range on the original fob, mine works from the mid-40s to mid-90s. I tend to avoid riding when the mercury rises into the triple digits.

    Nice idea. I have to take mine out — or did — and hold it by the antenna. After this I suspect I’ll find an alternative

    Now if Albuquerque Ducati would call me back, since I’ll probably pay more rather than strip the HFCU from the bike. I have a spare uncoded red key blank I’ll likely start using, and keep a spare at home in case.

    I’m just happy I lasted 8 years and 50,000 miles before I lost the key honestly :)
