Stubby Termi can

CF effect tank pad
Most of my money lately has gone on the Track bike !!
Nothing yet as the bike's not here! Fancy a sat nav though.
What Sat Nav?
Not really being one for bling, all my mods are intended to enhance the ride or sort out weaknesses. So in order of importance or biggest bang for your buck!
1. Leo Vince decat pipe and carbon can - eliminates the troublesome exhaust valve, smooths out low down fuelling and loses a ton of weight.
2. Remap of the ECU by CJS. - Fine tunes the fuelling to ensure the bike is as comfortable around town as on the back road, plus ups BHP from 143 to 151 at the rear wheel.
3. DP Touring screen plus Eagle screen winglets - eliminates buffeting and smooths out the airflow making a more comfortable ride
4. R&G radiator guard - after first few miles noticed a massive ding in the rad caused by a stone.
5. HID headlamps - now I can see at night courtesy of these eyeball searing headlights
6. Ohlins SCU - gives the bike a semi active ride. Plush round town and race bike firm when you give the gas.
7. Front cylinder head guard - keeps all the front wheel crap off the front cylinder head preserving that lovely gold finish
8. Navihalter sat nav mount - places sat nav behind screen and above clocks. Perfectly in your line of sight and allows you to use the DP tank bag.
9. DP comfort seats - standard seats are okay but the DP ones just that little bit more comfy.
10. DP top box - so so handy for carrying stuff everyday. Big enough for you helmet, gloves etc so you don't have to walk round looking like a storm trooper.
11. R&G crash bungs - never used them and I'm not sure they save much other than the engine casings but I'll take that to sleep a bit easier
12. DP tank pad and knees pads. - tank pad doesn't do much as the riding position means you zips don't get near the tank. Knee pads do a good job
13. Oxford Products bar ends - my only concession to bling but they're rubbish. Will replace with R&G items in due course
Jeez I didn't realise how much I've spent
HID Main Beam
Termi Stubby Can
Aztec Screen Spacers
Evotech Rad and Oil Guards
Cylinder Head Guard
I've got a 2013 Touring (Skyhook) model, with the following accessories:-
Evotech rad, oil cooler and engine guards
Garmin 660 Sat Nav, with a Navihalter mount
Ducati top case
Ducati top case and pannier liners
Ducati LED auxiliary lights
Ducati Hands Free Tank Filler Cap
VentureShield paint protection
Mobiletron Tyre Pressure Monitoring system
Scottoiler (eSystem), with dual injector
Sargent seats (lowered rider seat), with red trim
Bags Connection Quick-Lock EVO Trial & Daypack tankbags
Osram NightBreaker Plus main beam bulbs
Ducati LED rear indicators (Panigale)
Replacement LED bulb for number plate illumination light
Two spare non-transponder keys
Some of these accessories I "moved" from my 2010 model when I part exchanged it. Unfortunately I'll be buying the latest versions of most of these accessories for the new 2015 model I've ordered - once they are available. Those accessories which I don't leave on the bike when I trade it in will be up for sale.
Steve are the LED auxiliary spotlights any good ?
For daytime use, I think they make the bike more visible. I've had comments to this effect from fellow riders. I also get a few flashes from car drivers, especially at night, as they are bright - at least they've seen me
For nighttime use, they are add width not length. Useful on twisty lanes. They are more fog lamps than spot lights.
Fitting is straightforward, however the instructions say to take the tank off but I cheated and managed to get a cable route through the headstock without removing the tank. The brackets are bolted to the frame and the lights are tucked in nicely which I like, forming a square pattern with the dip beams. I suppose they might be more conspicuous if mounted wider, say out on some engine bars, however I'm not keen on this "GS like look".
The aux lights have to switched on every time the bike is key'ed on. Even though they are LED and therefore don't pull that much current (I don't know how much), it's probably a good idea to have them off when starting the engine. So you have to remember to switch them on every time you set off.
The switch fits nicely between the l/h switch-gear and the mirror bracket. I did have to tone down the green LED with a black felt tip. The loom plugs into the "Sat Nav" socket under the l/h side fairing but does provide another socket to plug a Sat Nav or other accessory into. The lights are therefore on the same 10A circuit as the auxiliary power sockets below the seat. The finish is good however the brackets could do with being powder coated but couldn't wait.
So are they any good? Yes, they are a bit pricey but they are easy to fit. There might be better lights, esp. spot lights, however I will be buying them again for my new bike (unfortunately, the brackets are different and probably not available separately).
Thanks Steve for a very good reply !, might well look into getting some of these then. I haven't actually seen a set on a multi yet that's why I asked.
Hi Mick, below are some photos. I've got a PDF of the installation instructions but they are too large to attach, message me if you want a copy.
Nice pics, where was that ?
The first two are on the Stelvio Pass and the last one is somewhere in the Dolomites.
Very nice indeed, just out of interest why a kriega tail pack and not a top box ?
I sometimes use the top box when touring solo, as it's easier to lock up helmet, gloves etc. when stopping during the day. I just don't like the look of the bike with a top box, even with panniers fitted. I hardly ever use the top box when the panniers aren't fitted, preferring a largish tank bag and a tail pack if I need to carry any clothes etc.
I always use the top box if my wife is pillion, as she likes the support it gives especially when the bike is accelerating. When touring, she gets the top box and I use the panniers. I have the Ducati liners for both, and fill any gaps with spare gloves etc.
I can vouch for the 'being seen' side of the lights, I was followed by a Multi a few months back and you definatly know the bike is there. I don't think they warant a flash though.
