Which mid-pipe or does it matter?

So I want to purchase a new mid-pipe for my new 910s and was wondering which one to purchase?

Performance is not really a big factor with adding a mid-pipe, so I guess quality is important and replacing the cat is the real requirement.

I wish I could purchase a full Corse Titanium system, but that is way out of my price range, so that leaves me wondering, should I purchase:

1. The MV Agusta Titanium mid-pipe at an exchange rate of almost $800.00USD from eMoto?

2. The Arrows mid-pipe for around $300.00USD off eBay?

3. Or the Fast By Ferracci mid-pipe for about $420.00USD?

I hope one day to purchase a set if header pipes, so I'm leaning towards the MV Titanium pipe.

Any suggestions? I also ordered my new CF rear hugger today from eMoto.
Thanks!

Hi, and welcome. I installed the Arrow mid-pipe. I love the look of it. I hated the bulky cannister on the bottom. I really only have one other upgrade. I bought the Matris damper. I loved it. The problem is this. I road my Brutale to a restaurant and while I was eating, someone stole it. What are the odds of someone with a metric set in their truck or car looking for a steering damper. Fortunately, they did a really nice job and didn't damage anything!!! I replaced it with an Arrow damper that I like just as well. I actually like the look better. Ayway, I like the Arrow mid-pipes. No midification or chips. I know people diffewr on this subject, but if you are going to ride it like it is meant to be ridden , a damper is a must. Just my opinion. Good Luck.

^^ Arrow damper eh? How much did that run?

I have the Arrow mid-pipe and it's swank. Fit and finish is awesome, and the sound is menacing...

What a low life to steal the damper? Sorry, I just had to vent.

CHECK your dealer....
Just pulled my receipt.....my MVSP Ti midpipe was 572.50....discounted to 543.88. From Atlanta Triumph Ducati....for my F4 BTW...
Fit and finish was perfect.

A gun is not a weapon. It's a tool, like a butcher's knife, or a harpoon, or an alligator.

Arrow Damper was 499 on E-bay. I love it. I still can't beleive my Matris got yanked. Loved that one too! Think I like the brushed steel arrow look though.

Thanks for the feedback guys, much appreciated! I will check with my dealer on the MV titanium mid-pipe, if they can't work a deal for me, I will give the folks at Atlanta Triumph Ducati a call.

If I can't find a good deal on one, I will go for the Arrows mid-pipe. I had a set of Arrows pipe on my 916 and build quality was great on them.

So JDOG - that is a real shame about getting your steering damper stolen! My wife and I lived in Downingtown for 3 years (BTW - we now love Arizona!) I worked for Bentley Systems in Exton, PA. I'm with you, it's really crazy that someone in the Downingtown area would rip off your damper.

Thanks again everyone - what a great forum!!!
Regards,
Duane

DG, I have the $300 Arrow midpipe, and have no issues with it, it looks stock, and I got it mostly to lower my running temp during the summer here, which it does very well! I still plan to get the whole system ceramic coated before the heat hits again,

BTW, is that the Bentley Systems that makes MicroStation?

Hi Fazer6 - thanks for the input on the Arrows mid-pipe! And yes, I worked for Bentley Systems for 5+ years - they are the MicroStation guys.

I used MS in high school a while ago, and then again at CDH Partners in Atlanta, you might be familiar with them, they are one of the largest MS users in the world, and also a beta tester. Great software, I just wish in were in greater use (I HATE ACAD!).
