Can you purchase just the DB killers and can they be put back in (or were they riveted)?
If I swap back to stock cans, will it screw up the ECU? I'd like to be able to run Laguna, but would need stock cans to have any chance of passing noise there.
Go to just about any dealer or Ducati shop and ask for a set. They have them - for free. They remove them from the slip-ons figuring everyone wants to hear the sound of the Termis.
I had the same issue - wanting to be a good neighbor - went to the dealer and he had a box of them. I grabbed the ones that came from my bike and re-installed them. Hated it immediately.
Spent several months "modifying" them. Drilling holes and then expanding the size of the holes - to give it a throaty, full-bodied V-twin sound without providing a full racetrack sound.
