I was wondering whether it is possible to mate/couple the horizontal and vertical header pipes from a 1098R to the downstream Termignoni parts from the 1098. The reason I ask is that I am about to replace the engine in my Tricolore with a 1098R engine and would like to use as much of the 1098 Termi presently on the bike as possible, as it is in excellent condition and do not want to fork out for a whole new Termi setup. My feeling is that the Tricolore should have been release as a commemorative model, with the 1098R engine, and numbered. But, to expect the obvious from Bologna is to expect too much! Anyways, thanks for your thoughts and insights.
