Investigation of our main competitor's choice of 25mm² cable was looked into first due many reports of fitment difficulty: I found the following information.. An industry standard voltage drop of 3 to 4% was generally regarded as acceptable.
Voltage drop over an average length 25mm² cable in our application is 0.02V or 0.17% Voltage drop over an average length 16mm² cable in our application is 0.03V or 0.25%. Therefore both cables far exceed this requirement meaning 16mm2 cables are more than fit for purpose and indeed over engineered for our application; as long as the life time quality with no deterioration could be achieved. Not being satisfied stopping there we commissioned a double sealed system where the cable not only seals against the crimps due to the 35 tonne fusion crimp, but is double sealed with a special bonded heavy duty heat shrink on each join. Further to this we had our supplier remove the inspection hole in their high quality copper terminals to give a system that would remain fully sealed for life in the hardiest of conditions - so no deterioration in current flow over time due to cable degradation. Our supplier already had a bespoke cable developed for the rail industry which employed a special rope weave within its construction for extreme anti vibration qualities.
Straight cable when bent can fatigue the copper, hence reducing the current flow. The rope system made up of hundreds of micro 0.2mm² high quality pure copper strands does not suffer this. So, we had our perfect cable. Why not make the +'ve cables the correct colour: red, so we did!These can be covered with black heat shrink on naked bikes if the customer requires so we supply this in our comprehensive kits. Aerospace industry leading heavy duty'seamless' copper terminals were chosen for maximum electrical conductivity. Each terminal is designed for optimum performance requirements and bespoke designed specifically for fitment to individual models; they are then annealed and tin plated to protect the longevity of the terminals performance.
This means no cutting of battery boxes or plastic covers no matter how complex the terminal design needs to be and indeed no change or splicing of your bikes wiring loom. Under tests our cables snap before the terminal fails! The advanced crimp method improves conductivity. These cannot be made in a local garage, only in a specialist facility. This is why we count Ducati Main Dealers and the likes of MWS Motorcycling Wiring Specialists among our customers & F1 Engineers too!!
Face Book Feedback: Exact-Start Ltd. Fantastic parts, superbly made and excellent after sales service, Stu is very knowledgeable and helpful.
My 1098 now leaps into life with a vigor I never thought possible! Just fitted a set of these cables to my Multistrada 1200s. The bike now starts straight away instead of the heavy, slow turnover it used to have. Stu couldn't be more helpful and the whole service he provides is excellent.
One of the best mods you can do to your Ducati. Would highly recommend this to any Ducati owners.
Fitted to my 1098R, helping it start every time. Exact-Start Web Site feedback 9.
I have to admit being a little sceptical that this kit could fix the problem let alone make the outstanding difference to my 1098 it has. The kit arrived rapidly and on opening it i was struck by the quality of the instructions with some very clear photographs and directions. I was impressed that everything you need was included, the only thing I was surprised was missing was a tool list but hey that's pretty obvious when you come to do it. The whole job is easily carried out and the end result was truly amazing, before fitting the bike would not turn over after spun up and fired in seconds.The whole bike rides and runs better and even if left a couple of days, starts with prior to fitting not a chance without an optimizer. I wouldn't have thought that it could be such a dramatic improvement, now starts first time on the button.
The kit was deceptive, I thought it was a nicely packaged job but when I came to fit it I appreciated how thoroughly this had been thought through. I'm sure I'm not the first to tell you that this product rocks, but I'm a right pernickety bugger and it takes a lot to make me impressed. Fitted to my Multistrada 1200. Can't believe the difference it made. Bike starts straight away now.
OMG what can I say I'm so happy. After a good hour fitting the cables I poured some electricity into her and bang she just fired into life. Anyone who has the starting problem and doesn't have these fitted is quite frankly silly. I was a bit unsure myself I must admit but having seen the difference with my own eyes and ears GET THEM FITTED.Mr Exige you are a star. I've just fitted cables and the results are superb: the bike starts with barely a hesitation, certainly no turning over waiting for it to fire. Fitting is not trivial, but that's more down to the crazily cramped and congested battery box design Ducati should be ashamed of themselves! It took me a couple of hours of fiddling and I've had the battery box off before to replace the fuel pump / ignition relay so I was expecting this, but the cables themselves were a great fit and feel very solid and secure. Initially I didn't give myself enough length on the Solenoid to Starter Motor run (I needed to route it above the nearer of the two lower heat-shield mounting points), but once that was sorted the length was perfect.
Interestingly I've had the Magneti Marelli Lithium battery fitted for a couple of months and whilst it's always started first time, it would still turn over a couple of times before rumbling into life. Now it is pretty much instantaneous, which does suggest that the original starter circuit cables really are the limiting factor.
Many thanks - instructions were excellent, and the little extras like the wipes, washers for the heat-shield mounts and the little bits of cut pvc tubing to hold the battery nuts in the right place were really handy.
