So, the SECOND broken rear header!

Just a heads up. My bike just had the rear header snap at the flange AGAIN! Ducati North America denied a warranty claim on it, stating that because I have a non Ducati authorized part on it (the Termignoni front exit slipon) they were denying the claim.

I pointed out that for 30 years, Termignoni WAS the only authorized Ducati exhaust partner, but they didn't care. Under the Magnusen-Moss act, I could go after them, but at the moment, I have way too much going on in my life to chase after them for $800-$1,200.

I always modify my bikes and know going into it that on occasion I am going to run into something like this, but it's disappointing and more to the point, the rear header has now failed TWICE in the identical place. I will be putting the stock mufflers back on, to see if the problem happens again.

After only a little over 10,000 miles on this bike, having the rear header fail twice is giving me some concern quite frankly.

We shall see if the issue re-occurs with the stock muffler setup. In the meantime, I am waiting for a reply from Termignoni Italy to see if THEY are aware that Ducati is blaming their product for this issue.

Why put the stock cans back on n waste money on oem headers?

Just buy aftermarket headers n make it a full system. That makes more sense.

That's my next step if it happens again.. I'll just get the Termi headers and go full Termi. The scientist in me wants to see if it will happen again with the stock setup, just to satisfy my curiosity.

Cheers.

It is very strange that you have had this happen twice. Would you happen to have pictures of both. I remember a little bit about your first one. But it would be very interesting to see pictures of them side by side. I have a few ideas that may be the cause but would rather see the pictures before trying to formulate a hypothesis. I, like you, am very curious to see how this is happening.

Maybe too much variance in temperature from cold outside to full blast engine heat and back down to cold air outside? Enough of those cycles may weaken the metal. A wild guess with absolutely nothing to backup my theory.
