Purchasing an SC Project system, voice from site I'm purchasing from as well as a Ducati Austin rep both advised not to toy with mapping until the horse is broke in.hey all, service mgr at ducati said to wait til after 1st service to put on exhaust. anyone heard of this advice before and know why some good reasons to wait would be? appreciate input as a gear-head I am definitely not!
that's round-a-bout what they said...and something about some rings sealing properly! thxI think they say that because the Termi opens up the motor a bit more not creating the back pressure the stock one does and allow the motor to break it with it during the first 500 mile service that might explain it but I have had mine on since day one.
touche' I've been putting 200 month on it for 4 months in a layaway kinda deal. I can roll that into the bike purchase if I want since it wasn't a special order. thxIf anything most dealers would say to put it on right away so they could sell it to you. I think if you wait, you might wind up happy with the way it sounds with the factory muffler and never put it on. That's the camp I'm in. Camp Good Enough.
Brilliant!Here's my Buddhist recommendation:
(Requires a deep understanding of the universe and a mandatory reading of Zen & the art of Motorcycle Maintenance)
This choice solely depends on the way you eat your meals -
If you are the kind who needs a sip of the strawberry shake right from the first bite of your burger then install the Termi right away.
On the other hand, if you are the kind who likes to finish up the burger first and then enjoy the strawberry shake, then wait till first service.
