This is super, super cool!

I'm a bit surprised that longer loop=more HP but that's awesome.
I don't think that the longer hoop doesn't make a difference in peak hp (the 70mm vs 60mm does) but that's what makes all the difference in the midrange. It feels more like my 1098R now.

I had to use the Termi cover because Akra doesn't make an available cover that works for the exhaust that I have and the subframe. There are some out there that require the Pierobon rear subframe to work but because of the unique nature of the parts, I'm okay with using Termi's. They had to make it for me with one of their molds and it's very good.

I'd love to see those pics if you have a link to them or can post a few? I'm sure others would enjoy them as well.

I have lots of pics of the install but most would find them boring.

I'm sure no real performance gain, just really nice looking, but here it the motocorse I was talking about https://www.motocorsestore.com/en/brands/ducati/panigale-899-1199-1299/kit-collettori-in-titanio-per-1199-con-silenziatori-akrapovic.html
FYI, Motocorse is Japanese (though I think Kondo-san opened an Italian branch several years ago), while Akrapovic is Slovenian. Motocorse's TIG welds are among the best I've seen -- I think their master welder is/was former Yoshimura (Japan). Probably one of the few Japanese parts I'd put on an Italian bike.

The motocorse are 75mm looks like. How much would that affect the tuning over the race exhaust it comes with?

I'm sure Sherpa can elaborate a lot better than I can, however, above a certain diameter, it's not just about the size. And different sizes are better suited to different tracks. It's going to depend on your tuning goals/type of riding/where you ride.

I was under the assumption that you shouldn't touch the titanium pipes with your bare hands as it can affect the (dis)coloration of the pipes. Is that just a myth? Does it not apply in this case since it's already had a heat cycle? Or what's up and down in regards to that?
