    So I really, really like the 25L touratech top case, as I never use my top case for helmet, i like the smaller size. So I bought the touratech DIY top case rack and used stainless spacers with the SW-MOTECH luggage rack. Like the results, only needed to get some bolts and drill holes. Nothing else special, no welding, etc.

    I got to ride my PP to Cape Breton a few weeks ago. It was a 2 week trip totaling 5000 miles.

    Anyone put on the full termi themselves?
    Put lots of systems on just not one on the multi and not sure what the power up thing is

    I put the full akra on my GS, but did not require any remap. For multi, my local shop (non dealer) charged me < $200 and Ducati has all the computer stuff locked down. I just came to terms that with the Ducati I'll be doing less myself compared to the GS with the gs-911

    Initially started with a DB killer in but I didn't even make it 2 miles down the road and drove back to the shop and have them pull the DB killer out. I wish it wasn't as loud with the killer out but it was definitely too quiet with it in, for my tastes

    Also I immediately noticed the engine remap. Literally no more shaking at low RPMs, the bike runs so much better with that map even if you weren't getting the exhaust the map would be amazing to have. But from what I even understand Ducati has these up maps DRM'd and lockdown as well. Super happy with the result a little disappointed that none of its really DIY friendly

    So termi installed. Love it. with db killer in, its probably just a little louder than my full akrapovic on R1200GS, hard to tell, different sound. with the db killer out its mad! and i love it. 14.5 lbs of weight loss too..

    I bet, its more or less a few bolts and gaskets. How did you apply the upmap? Or did you not?

    It’s a fiddlie system to fit
    Not akro that’s for sure. Little heat to slip together and copper anti-seize
    The map is getting loaded at the dealer ASAP
    No choice there

    Install really isn't bad with some patience and the correct tools. ebrew is absolutely correct about the heat and copper anti-seize as well. Fitted mine alongside my friend/local Ducati technician and had everything including the map done in 2.5 hours or so. Transformed the bike and saving a little weight (just shy of 7 lbs when all parts taken into account) off of the bottom of the bike is a bonus. The sound is intoxicating and the baffle does make a sizable difference if needed for rider comfort or DB limits at different track events, i've decided to leave mine out as the idle isn't annoying to the neighbors and I can get away before I get on it too much

    BMW nav 6 will work great
    I think the Duc key will work in the lock as well
    Still finishing up wiring and stuff 8FB55FE0-60FB-423F-9FD3-C69A529C9192.jpeg 6EC6A489-FFF8-4601-AD62-148BB3E56BC1.jpeg

    Just put a deposit down on a 1260S (red, I like the black wheels). I'd go pick it up today but I'm in the middle of refinancing my condo. I can't wait, the good weather is here right now.
    I've Always had sport bikes (and a husky 701 Supermoto) and never even considered a bike like this but I'm getting older... I always plan short rides because I have bad knees and a bad back But with something like this I can plan Adventures!!
