749R exhaust?

I've got the bike, an 04, got it 16 months ago. Now for a Termi 'system'...But which one? I can get a good discount on both the asymmetric and the full 57mm job. Big difference in price between those. A tuner here(oz) said another option would be a full 54mm for a 999s with a tuneable ecu. I checked out the price and this system is more expensive than the 749R 57 item! This is for the road, with the odd track session. Any thoughts?

Haven't seen the Leo Vince but point taken. The discount on the Termi's though is too good to ignore.

I know where you can find Leo Vince's at great discount prices, but you'll have to import it from Italy.
If you want some info, u2u me.
For you, it might be worth checking.

I've got a 749R 04 also.

From all accounts the 57mm Termi gives better horsepower than the Leo Vinci.
As to looks, they don't really bother me and we stock both!!!

Depends what your looking for

Dunno if the Vinci comes with filters etc.

I would go with Termi and get a powercommander! (worked for me!!)

Martin, A few weeks back someone mentioned that there is some full system pipework available to convert the assymetric system to a full system using the original assymetric back box, do you know the part number and price for this and is it available now ?

It is in the new catalouge apparently.

Hmm, thats sounds wrong, given the size of the pipes difference at the entry into the box.

Its, strangely enough equal on the 57mm system at 57mm..............and assymetric on the assymetric system...ie unequal sizes!

Just as a direction, ive got a full 57mm on my 999r. I obtained a spare rear can and modified the inlets the same as the 57mm can. I can now just change the can over to do noisy/quiet t/days.

iang, I know nothing about that!?!
Just checked with our parts chap on that score, no parts listed.
Checked with Duc UK they don't know either!!! Sorry mate, someone is telling porkies I fear!!!

Like andyb I find it highly unlikely / impossible!

Not only is andyb right about the diameter of the backbox inlets (a restriction that you just can't get round without cutting it open!) but there is also nowhere for the additional pipe to route!

On the 54 / 57mm system the pipes are offset and the RHS foot peg is spaced to facilitate both pipes being shoe-horned in the cutout in the swingarm for the standard pipe.

Advice is this : -
If you want a few bhp, increased torque and that DUCATI sexy noise, fit the asymetric system.

If you are thinking of maximising BHP and are thinking of going further down the tuning route (or you just like having all the bells and whistles!) the 54 / 57mm is the place to start and looks the bogs dollocks!

Pipes and fuel injection is only the beginning of tuning. There is loads that can be done given a big enough budget!!

But if you are thinking a bit further down the line, start with a good exhaust system that will cope with what ever you do internally to the engine.

Lastly, ALWAYS get the CO's done, preferrably on a dyno, it's the only way to get it feeling crisp!

You know where I am if you wanna word!
