My red icon had it's first service yesterday, and I also had the race termi fitted.
The exhaust sounds amazing, even with the baffles in, which I will probably keep in, as the exhaust is loud enough for my ears.
However, the point of this post is, that the engine seems to run much better/smoother with the new 'Race' engine map. Before, the engine was jerky from a closed throttle. I also experienced the engine misfiring and then backfiring from a closed throttle, when pulling away from lights etc. Bumpy roads also caused a throttle jerkiness, no matter how carefully I attempted to ride.
Riding the 30 odd miles back from the dealers, the throttle seems much smoother and no noticable jerkiness. I have only pulled away from 2 or 3 lights, but that too seems much improved.
Is this a placebo effect, or have other 'termi adoptees' experienced the same?

Hi Simon,

I'm afraid I can't answer your question but I dare say the reduced back pressure and new map of the Termi could iron out some of the jagged throttle response.

A question for you. Do you know how easy it is to remove and re-install the baffle (db killer) on the Termi?

Cheers

Has anyone fitted their own Termi yet?


I'd like to know if the re map is plug and play or if it requires the dealer to do something "special" to install.


Do all countries have the rule where you can't fit the Termi until after the first service?

Mr_rockster has and I saw someone else here or on the other forum. Although they just said the instructions are kind of non-existent but not too hard. The rule seems to be from a Ducati not from the countries, and is to do with running in with the right fuel mix, etc.. You can do it earlier if you do it yourself but may affect your warranty if you have problems early on, and may not be that great for the bike long-term...
I always fit my own exhausts to my bikes so this will be the same - should be fairly easy being just a slip-on (then again I've been known to finish a simple 1 hour install in 5... At 3am...)

It's got nothing to do with Ducati, I've had mine on from mile 1, fitted by my dealer and definitely doesn't affect any warranty claim.

Good to know - my dealer claims it does but I'm going to install it myself as soon as I have my bike and my termi

It's possible that a dealer fitted can doesn't affect warranty but non dealer fitted does? I know it shouldn't but I'm guessing so it could all be a load of old tosh! :confused:

In response to scramblers question. The baffle looks very easy to remove, it seems to be held in place by just one bolt; although I hav'nt tried to remove it.
That's what I've heard as well. I believe it's an Umbraco bolt.
Will be getting my Scrambler tomorrow. Can come back with info once the baffle is out..

Feli and Jerry,


Thanks for your responses, looks to be an Australian distributor thing, I thought I had read on here that others, like Jerry had theirs fitted from new.


I possibly pick mine up tomorrow afternoon, then 2 days of work then 10 days off, weather forecast looks good, I think I'll knock up the 1,000 k's pretty quickly anyway.


Due to the Easter break, I'll pick the pipe up with the bike and fit it myself.

I just fitted my db-killer as it was still in the box after fitting. Just one allen screw secures it in place.

Shamone--is the difference noticeable? Is the sound "obnoxious" with the DB killer installed? I love the sound of the Termi, but I definitely don't want to bug the neighbors every time I take a ride.

Orion-thanks for the links!

PeteI and Shamone: If you read the comments under the youtube-videos, you will see that the dealer has confirmed the DB-killer in/out:) I have no proof other then their words.

Edit: The red one, middle link you can see that it is out. If it had been installed you would have seen the sylinder inside.
