My new Duc...

Well, that took me all of 10 months and 1 Harley to get back on a sportbike....

.... and it has a built-in lap timer... whatever will I do with that!

I need good pics taken of it... yes, I agree. Must talk to the guys with cameras on here to help me out.

Also... time to start scoping out new pipes... I like Termi's, but suggestions always appreciated!

Not sure if they make exhaust systems for the 848, but Fast by Ferracci makes decent sounding systems for most italian makes.

Look, I can appreciate this. I was young too, I felt just like you. Hated authority, hated all my bosses, thought they were full of shit. Look, it's like they say, if you're not a rebel by the age of 20, you got no heart, but if you haven't turned establishment by 30, you've got no brains. Because there are no story-book romances, no fairy-tale endings. So before you run out and change the world, ask yourself, "What do you really want?"

They fucked me on the 1st attempt at a slipper for my old "04 - Sent me the wrong "kit" and when I explained everything numerous times to them at how it did not fit, their solution was to have me "ship my motor to them so they could see what i was working with"

- never returned a call
- never returned an email
- took FOREVER to get my refund

Just not a fan of their shit anymore

I've read so many stories on Termis falling apart on the Duc forums.

I think Germany had several issues with his on the 1098.

Arrow and Leo Vince are also good. Arata if you can find it.

Had Leos on my 630 & 690 and have Arrows on my 450 and the quality of all (3) are exceptional

Paikey had an Arata system on his old CBR and that thing was fucking tits on a taco

yep the original midpipe was welded and cracked on the termis, after 2 of them, they finally gave me a new seamless pipe...

the new Termis are pimp... I'd go with CF on the white bike stainless or TI wouldn't look good in my opinion.
sadly they went with a wet clutch....



OK the Termi on the hyper caught fire and has now a 4 inch hole...

Truth be told, any pipe on a twin is going to come apart sooner of later from the pulse pressure that it puts out and because I think of lighter materials to save weight compared to stock pipes.

It maybe just me, but I have seen many pipes come apart on twins even on SV's.
