Guys

i only just realised the 899 is louder than the 1199, well at certain revs.
The dB stamp on both bikes reads:


1199 104dB(A) - 5375 rpm
899 108dB(A) - 5375 rpm

I cant imagine what the termi kit would do to the noise, as it already sounds like a 50. cal machine gun:)

cheers

I started one up today at my local dealer and while it has been a while since I started a 1199, I thought it sounded louder when I cracked the throttle. 4db isn't a huge difference so I'm not saying my ears are exceptional or anything. Just that it really caught me by surprise. Way louder than my current S1k.

Minibus

please write a brief review after you have the termis fitted.I would be particularly interested in:

1. Noise at low/med/high rpm
2. Power delivery changes between 3000rpm-6000rpm and 6000rpm-9000rpm
3. Any change to throttle response/fuelling

thanks

LOL

Sounds like a plan, did the dealer give you a price for the termi kit supplied and fitted?

Cheers

What frasers did was added up all my accessories including the termis
And gave me one total price
Which I agreed on
And when I paid for my deposit
I asked for the list with prices
And they gave me a copy of what I got , but without the prices
I asked why no prices
They basically said , so I can't compare prices with else where,
Like if I bring in the parts myself

Which I'm not happy about, it wasn't the sales guy, was the guy that takes the $$$

But from what I recall , I paid something like $2600 for them installed , back in December

And this is why i don't like dealing with Fraser's but us Sydney siders don't have much of a choice when it comes to Ducati.

Guys

Just a suggestion, what about if we approached Frasers for a bulk purchase, say 5 termi kits including fitting?

Surely they would have to give us a discount.

The Termi's do sound awesome, mine were fitted when I picked the bike up so no comparison with the stock, I've so far willingly ridden without earplugs as I love the sound the bike makes and it's nowhere near as ear punishing as my 2010 Fireblade with a Taylormade system fitted. the Termi's do come with dab killer inserts, but don't think I'll be fitting them other than for noise level checks at track days!

108 db is a lot. To bad most weekend track days are restricted up to 85 or 90 db. So i guess i have to do weekdays where there is no limit on DB. :(

If i was getting the Termi's i would jump on that idea. But ive decided to go with the Akra's for the 899. As much as i love the termi sound i just love the finish and sound of the Akrapovics (quieter down low but a monster up top).

Oni

where are you getting the Akrapovic exhaust from, and how much are they charging?
Slips on or full system?

cheers

I'm still waiting to hear back from a few guys i know who import pipes. At the moment i think only the full system is available as i can't find the SKU for just a slip-on (unless a member here has the SKU for it).

So the full Akra with our Aussie exchange right now i'm guessing would be close to $5000.
