Gutting Stock Exhaust/Cat? - July 26, 2011, 09:36 PM

Well, I really like the way the stock exhaust looks on the Multistrada. Also all the aftermarket exhausts apparently rub against your heel according to everything I have read. They also cost a small facking fortune. Now I know I probably won't gain much in the way of performance however I'm hoping that the sound would increase just a little (already loud). I was thinking about gutting the exhaust and the cat and getting the exhaust part powder/ceramic coated flat black... What do you guys think. What problems could I anticipate going this route?

Here is a picture for reference. My bike is white but this was the fastest pic I could find.

Termi makes some amazing pipes for that lady, check out Zard as well.

Zard is something like $1700 Termi is not much cheaper and I saw a lot of good things as well as bad things about it. So you think gutting it will cause any issues I'm not anticipating?

Gutting it wont cause you any issues. It's not different than putting a full exhaust on it. The computer should be able to compensate for the extra flow. Worse thing that happens is you have to get a power commander. But with just gutting...you should be fine.

Also I would take off the other emissions stuff if you're going to delete the cat anyway.

Although the ozone and air would prefer you kept the cat and emissions.


Then again... That's just me.

On the internet... Everyone is an expert.

Gutting a cat?!?!?

Not sure about this model, but gutting a cat usually involves cutting and welding (you probably already knew that). If there are no O2 sensors after the cat, then it will make no difference with the fuel curve as it is only adjusting it for what is coming out of the header. If there is a sensor after the cat it could lean out your mix a little.

When I went termi, there is a new computer map and all with it. I love the termi on those, sound is amazing. I have heard ducs with gutted exhaust vs aftermarket, just not the same sound. I think its also going to affect overall performance if you dont have the right maps, finicky little bitches these ducs are... I know its bling cash but overall proper running across the board I would donk off the cash if you like the sound and want the power...

Any problems you may have with ridability will not be covered under warranty with this mod, this is a new ducati , you will have problems. I would look for a slip-on that can be replaced with the stock one when you need that warranty work

Thanks for the advice guys. I guess I might leave it stock for a while then. The warranty issue does make sense Rick. And honestly this bike makes plenty of power. I just figured it would sound a little better.

Also, BOTH of those slip ons have cats in them... very little tone difference between stock and the slip ons in all honesty.. save the pennies and get a full system..

I am still trying to figure it all out but, some people have done the MIVV decat.+fat duc+Motocreation servo eliminator+dB killer.
Multi 1200S + MIVV Mid pipe - Ducati.ms - The Ultimate Ducati Forum

I agree with Rick...warranty is more important.

True. My bike came with a Termi slip on...it sounds the same as stock since the dB killer is in the cat.
