Sounds like you [email protected] up dude. Lol. There is a huge thread on this already, with results and all. Do a search and re-drill. Or use this as a nice excuse to buy some termi's.

For some reason the song "Lola" just came into my head. :rolleyes:


For what it's worth, you might be able to undo your drilled holes somehow. I've had sucess undoing a similar mod using steel wool, but you will need some kind of fastener to secure it.

It simply amazes me that people who own a Duc would attempt to take the cheap way out to get something done on their bike. Just buy a new exhaust...if you want to go about it in a truly right way buy new headers as well.

Start fresh and both you and your Duc will be happier for it.

I just happen to have a pair of stock GT cans in my garage that I will be happy to sell you if you want them. I'm sure Ducati's price is around $1000 apiece. Mine would be a small fraction of that.

Give me a PM if you want near new stock cans.

I too messed up my pipes by drilling holes. I tried stuffing steel wool in them but it just blew out. I'll try wrapping them with Duc tape.

I played with drilling the mufflers out and it worked for me. I needed a better tone so I made my own setup. Fun and creative. I for one never had the dough to invest $1800 in Termis. Good if you can. But for around $150 I did my own thing and am happy with it.

Here's a good thread on the topic. http://www.ducati.ms/forums/showthread.php?t=58356

I have seen and heard these on DucBeak's ride. Tre' cool and tre' cheap. If you are looking for something different with those two criteria in mind I would recommend starting here.

I remain undrilled to this day - never felt good about possibly F'ing up my factory pipes. Glad someone (sorry it was you) gave credence to my reserve on this matter...
