sinjin, are you running the full system or just the slip? If you are running the full, does Ducati provide an up map for the full on the 899?
Just the slip-on. The 899 ECU doesn't contain a RACE map for the full system as the stock exhaust headers should provide sufficient flow for 98% of the aftermarket exhausts. In fact the upmap key is bike specific so if you purchase the full system, your key would not be compatible with the bike.
Only on the 1199 can you really benefit from the full system as the exhaust header on that engine can limit the potential performance.
You could go with the full Termi or full Akrapovic, which does reduce the overall weight of the bike, but that is about the only benefit unless you squeeze slightly more out of the engine by using a Tuneboy or RapidBike module which would be necessary anyway in order to replace the incompatible upmap key.
If you go the Termi route, the best advice I could give is go with a slip-on and then apply the extra cash to wheels or a slipper clutch.
