Ducati rocks!

You sound like you're paid to say this lol.

Akrapovic make exhausts for HEAPS of bikes, nothing exclusive about it.
Not saying that anyone else could make a better pipe, i just think its ridiculous an aftermarket exhaust takes so much time to fit. An i dont think its their fault either, it's more ducatis with the factory setup.

I think about $4,000 installed would be a fair price for the Akrapovic exhaust for our V4s, considering branding, material, engineering costs. The average of $5,600 installed is crazy, but everyone has to make a buck as stated above.


Ducati tax...

Iíve mentioned this in another thread... I bought a full termi for the 1199. Iím no wiz mechanic by any means, but I took my time with instructions and shop manual and installed it myself... I feel like everyone should do that to learn more about their bike. But hey, if you got the cash, then pony up! Hell, I would if I had that much in my race budget.

I don't disagree, time is the limiting factor for me.

For the OP, any updates?

Weather was terrible on Saturday, on off rain with very high winds, Sunday was damp in the morning but the sun came out and the afternoon was nicer.. Figures I only had 1 Race on Sunday afternoon.. Saturday was a mess and I never really pushed myself or the bike.. 28 crashes just on Saturday.. Sunday I had 2 decent morning practices and thought I was ready to battle up front for the podium, that changed when 2 riders went down in front of me and I had to put my motorX skills to the test.. LOL.. Never got to challenge after that.. Iím doing 2 days at Thunderbolt this weekend then Race Summit Point Memorial Day weekend, I will keep you updated my friend.
Thanks from KarlKani
