Does anyone know the exact weight saving on OEM exhaust headers vs Sil Motor headers on a SS 900 IE?

No. A rough guess would be 1-2 kg - but that is for the full system, not just the headers. Just the headers - I'd guesstimate that the OEM and Silmoto are pretty close. But the Silmoto flows better.

Mods are: K&N filter, airbox lid on with rubber trumpets removed, MBP collets, full SMI (SilMoto Italia) spaghetti exhaust with 'open' carbon cans, 41mm FCR's - #182 mains!, Barnett alloy clutch basket, Oberon slave cylinder, Ohlins fork springs, Ohlins rear shock, Verlicchi swingarm.

Thanks for that info, now the big question is...Where can I buy them for a 900ie? I've been lucky enough to find the termis, maybe my luck will keep going

Ahhh - one of those... I have no idea if the carbie and ie headers are interchangeable. In fact, looking at how parts are advertised, I'd say not interchangeable, and after having a bit of a browse on the web - it doesn't look good for you in respect of aftermarket headers specifically for your 900ie. Good luck!

Note: I did find some specified for a 98 900 (my ones are for 91-97) here - Ducati Supersport 900 1998 Silmotor Exhaust Full System Carbon Oval Silencers | eBay No idea if they'll be right for yours though (or if your Termis will fit).

I can confirm that early headers don't fit an IE, I've got an early set in my garage gathering dust to prove this.

I just installed a refurbished Termi 45mm system on my FE. I'll post dyno numbers after I have it dyno tuned.

Bought a complete set-up from FBF in May this year. Attached is a photo showing the major difference between stock and the Sil-Moto header.
Still struggling to get the fit right with interference with the lower rear of the left faring (yet to be addressed) and the right oil cooler line (moved the cooler a bit but it's still too close for comfort).
Next spring I MUST get this together so I can finally ride the bike!

Not affiliated - but this is on eBay right now. GiaCaMoto spaghetti system with included cans. I can't quite tell, but it looks to be neither a standard mount, nor a high mount, but somewhere in between.

Question - if you had 2 different systems and one made more power at 6k but less at 7500 vs the other system that made more peak power at 7500 but less at 6k, what would you prefer? lets say 3-5hp difference at each rpm point mentioned above?

also, what is the order of importance

peak power
more midrange power
lighter weight
fit
quality
price

how would you prioritize this list?

i have been doing a bunch of testing on my 900 and just curious what all of you think is important?

Thanks for your comments
