I would trust carbon fiber over metal, assuming it's manufactured properly.

I wouldn't exactly call Larry Pegram a poser......
Zard exhaust are built by X-termi employees also. IF I had a Duc, i'd probably run Termi's though, but because Rossi runs them not because ALL the Ducati guys have them.

iv used a lot of carbon in my life, i paddled for the us national team for 5years when i was younger and carbon is very strong, my boat and all my paddles were all carbon, i doubt it'll crack or break off, more likely it ll chip but carbon is fixable and easy to work with, metal breaks and, thats it its boken! the carbon you can fix, it maybe wont look pretty but it can be done. i like the sand on there looks like alot o grip for your tootsies

800 is high for rearsets... but I wouldnt say it is out of line for carbon rearsets especially if they are a rare or race team item... I know we are talking termi exhaust (what i had/have on my duc as well if that matters)

but.. with cycle cats being 600+
800 for some unobtanium carbon rearsets... not unbelievable
remember the carbon frame? I believe it was around 10 grand

Dude,

Those rearsets...........are fugly. Is that pic for real, or are those an Internet fabrication like the Pitt/Desmo16 silliness? I repeat,........ fugly.

A much cooler mod............ would be Magnesium wheels, way more bang for the buck.

And finally...........Ducatis should have Termignonis. (Pronounced "tour-mihg-nyone-eez"). Period. Just because. Plus, once again, if you don't wad your Termis into a little ball, someday they just might be worth more than you paid for them, unlike all those other pipes. Trust me...........

Chances are the carbon rearsets are for the person who already has the forged mag wheels... maybe right before they go with the ceramic braking system.. I dont think it is a mod for the penny pinchers...

oh and i have a 7 year old termi system.. what will you gimme for it? start the bidding at 2 grand.. oh and it's just a slipon...

Alex, CF Rearsets are my next cosmetic Mod too - if you want, I can check with Stephano from Players as he imports these kind of things from his family over in Italy - Maybe he can give us a Volume Disc - I think the ones I was looking at were like 5 bills or something
