it looks like i am gonna have to go that route....The parts guy at my local dealer who was very helpful still had to give me the bad news. Their local ducati rep said that the only way i can get another one of those brackets is if i purchase a set of new slip ones wtf??? mmhmm let me go spend another 2000+ dollars for a bracket no thank you.. Im hoping someone on here is has an extra one or knows a good metal fab. I sent an email to termignoni but based on their website ducati isnt even an option
I Hear you on that! whats the point of spending all that money when they dont even give general customer support "dealer only support" is total BS! I lucked out and found the missing bracket it was tucked away behind the rear tire. Next duc i get is going to have akra's anything other than termiThis is pretty much exactly the same response I got when looking for a replacement header on an already overpriced full exhaust... Had to get a local welder make repairs. I almost hoped he couldn't fix the header so it would give me a reason to get a real exhaust!
Termignoni for ducati are total garbage IMO. It's sad that you have to fab parts for a $3-$5K exhaust.. Worst purchase I have ever made and really gives me a bad feeling about Ducati in general...
I had termi slip on's before no problem in quality or fitting. The only thing im having trouble with them is the customer support. I understand that their contract with ducati has recently changed but can i at least get an email saying that part isnt available instead of just no reply after several emails.Sorry to hear you guys have had negative experiences with Termignoni. I should balance that by saying mine have been fine, on several bikes, and over extended mileage.
But the difficulty in obtaining Termi spares may be a function of Ducati's contract with Termignoni, which appears to include sales rights which tie Termignoni's hands.
Glad you found the missing part though. Before you got a flat tyre out of it!
had to break down both sides to get them ceramic coatedAnd for future reference - we usually drill out the rivets at the front of the muffler to rebuild, not the rear. Saves this problem.
