I just lost out on some Ducati performance mufflers What are your feelings about those d&d exhaust?I am getting a lot of ST owning neighbors. What Paul wrote is applicable to the ST4s. I assume that if your ST is an MY 03, it is an ST4s and not an ST4 as you originally posted.
Get a 42T or 43T rear sprocket ASAP if there is not one already on the bike. It will really make life on your bike livable between 3,000 and 4,000 rpm at posted speed limits. Even with a larger rear sprocket, it will not like life below 3,000 rpm at all.
These bikes do not get broken in until 10,000 miles are on the odometer. After that, they will really smooth out.
I have always kept the exhaust systems stock on the three ST's I have owned. The mufflers will get a little louder with age. Take the $$$ you would spend on aftermarket mufflers and buy a Ducati Designs headlight.I just lost out on some Ducati performance mufflers What are your feelings about those d&d exhaust?
fixed the pipe problem following a thread here, by cutting out half the muffler off easy fix except for breaking all but bolts off in the muffler maybe stainless isn't the best for that application. sounds like the 1976 Bonneville 750 I had 18 yrs ago, not too loud. My next newbie question is how can I lower my baby down, I'm 5'4" An inch or 2 would be nice if possibleMy first Ducati was a 94 Monster. I bought it used with D and D pipes. Frankly, they were a bit too loud. I have Forza pipes on my ST4 and it sounds nice. My favorite pipes were the Arrows on my 916. Very mellow.
