I was just informed that I am being charged 7 hrs labor for the replacement labor. The dealership also changed my oil and cleaned my filter.. Total cost of $760.

Does Ducati have a standard time or charge for breakdown and set up for a exhaust on the Pani? I wanted to see if there is a standard breakdown time that Ducati may use as reference when considering labor time for the exhaust system. I will be speaking with the Manager on Friday to review the labor costs but wanted to get our group's feedback to better understand what a ave time Ducati considers for replacing exhaust systems.

Thanks for any feedback your able to provide.
I would have done it for $500 and a couple of beers

Did they have to put the exhaust valve and associated cable back on, I bet that one takes a bit to get through, easy off probably not easy back on.. which may lead to extra time?

I just traded in my 2014 R with the Akra evo system for the 2015 R. Sold the termi system months ago. The dealer took it into account and gave me a boost on the trade in price. Why didn't you just do that?

He saw you coming, especially if you take it back there to trade in for the new R.........

I cannot believe some of the stories I hear about the misfortune people have with dealerships elsewhere in the world. In the UK we seem to be lucky. My dealer is fantastic and will bend over backwards to help me. It lets the brand down big time, robbing b*stards

2 hours huh?

-Did you start your clock when your hands first set on the bike, or when you had the body off and up on a lift?
-Did you cut corners?
-Did you remove the servo assembly completely or just remove the cables and left it there?
-Did you dyno test and reflash?

I'm lucky enough to have a honest enough dealer in my area. To do it RIGHT, up to my level of expectations, is a 7 hour gig. About $856.

I'd likely charge $500 myself. And then refund the customer if it truly only takes me 2 hours.

Ok 3 hours. As it goes I will be taking the cans off this weekend so will time myself and report back.

Not sticking up for the dealer. But your taking it to them.

Its not all that bad, considering you wont do the work yourself.

Would you trust a cheaper source on a 30k bike?


My Termi fitment was a pain in the butt, and it was not straight forward. Its something you want done right and not rushed.

Were talking about cleaning and greasing bolts with proper lube and loctite as described in the book. Me, I threw it all back with what was on it, less the blue loctite.



If 760 includes that oil filter and oil change, you really have nothing to complain about.
