Im looking for a second hand 'slip on' termi exhaust for my 05 749s. Also looking at upgrading the ECU. Can someone guide me in the right direction to finding one? any info/recommendations would be much appreciated.
Ebay ? Go to the dealer locator on the Ducati website and call everyone you can to see if they have one languishing on their shelf. Used is your best bet though. Bursi-Evolution, Italy always has Termis and Leo Vince systems for sale.
Patience is the key.....
Like ZDM said, patience is needed. You shouldn't have too much trouble if you're just looking for a slip-on, especially something as common as a termi. I'd say eBay is probably going to be the fastest way to find one. If you're looking for a full system, the shallow sump/braced swing arm makes it very difficult to find one that fits (unless you want to buy a new zard system).
I'd definitely get at least a power commander to really get the bike running right. There are a lot of people on this forum that highly recommend Ducati diag and re-flashing the stock ecu. Personally, Ducati diag is a little too homegrown for me and I didn't want to try and tune it on my own. As such, I went a little overboard and got a microtec ecu and had it tuned by someone competent. The bike is absolutely buttery smooth in power delivery so I'm happy
