    If your bike is a Gen 1 then its a matter of just cutting a single wire by the ECU

    If running a after market air filter, k/n etc, and or different from stock cans it will run a lot better and is recommended to change to map 2, on gen 2 you need a dealer with a axone to change it over, map 2 is already in the ecu just need it activating via the axone , and worth getting the throttle bodies set up as well, balanced etc.

    Did you fit the cans replacing original aprilia ones it came with, as most have been changed to map 2 by there owners these days, maybe yours has been.

    If it has performance cans fitted, it would probably cut out when you come to a halt if it was on Map 1...that's what mine used to do, because the dealer forgot to switch it over for me when I bought the bike from new.

    Yes the only way to tell for sure would be to hook it up to a axone, but it prob is already on map two, if it's not running a rough as a rough thing and cutting out as said.
