It looks real nice. How's it seem to be running? Is that can custom as well?

I actually haven't been up to his shop to see, hear, and dyno the bike, I've been tied up with work (baaah) and an SR500 project that's going off the deep end in a good way. That is a custom can, all hand built. We tried a few designs early on but settled on a pretty standard but LARGE perforated stainless core with "permanent" stainless steel packing and welded end, same as you'd see on a Staintune or similar but larger in diameter. He's experimenting with stepping up the headers to meet the baffle like you'd see on one of the systems he builds for race cars. Looks like he's stepping up in size a couple times here, with largest diameter through the core of the baffle.

The design I think I'm going to eventually go with will appear similar to what you see here with the headpipes to the point that they join, but I want them to Y out again and terminate in dual stacked baffles, sort of like what you'd see on an MV Agusta Brutale. The crossover section would be where it is now, tucked up under the lower right side of the swingarm instead of in the stock "bus-stop" location behind the center rear of the case.

He's designing it to tuck up as tight as possible under the bike; pegs will be the first thing to drag and the headers and can(s) should never hit ground (unless you're crashing).

I can't wait to hear it run. I'll have to work on the jetting a bit I'm sure, this is a much less restrictive setup than the Staintunes that came off of it... but it'll be a fun process to see, hear, and feel the results.

Once the final versions are made we'll be measuring them up and storing the design in CAD in case there's any interest in a "production" version of the header setup or full system. I'll keep you posted!

Three more pictures. Getting close. The first two are of a short baffle. It BARKS.

The third photo is of a longer baffle, much mellower tone. I'm going to work on jetting a bit and get to the dyno eventually but wanted to give a quick progress report. I'll drag my camera to the shop and get some decent pictures this weekend as well; it's hard to see the details of the welds, the moto/race inspired spring retainers, etc from these crappy phone pics.

What will be the high bid?

Crazy, crazy, crazy..........
You could buy 3 sets of Dunlop Q2s for this much, but I'm betting $750.
Any takers?

and F1 owners are saying "What the he!! ?? Since when does a Ducati have a rear facing exhaust port on the vertical cylinder??"

the rear facing exhaust port started with the Paso 750 (I think)... There are many bad a$$ Ducatis out there with a rear facing carb on the vertical cylinder

In my 5 years I have had a Duc I have spent way too much time cruising the Ducati forums, and chatting with other owners, itís a addiction really (just ask my wife). I'm hoping to turn my attentions to Ferraris in the near future, you know because Iím not spending my money fast enough. I find printed Ducati information seems to almost none existent a Chapters, or other local book stores, at least where I live, I guess I should look a little closer at the online stores. Thanks for the heads up I will check it out.
