Installed Arrow mid-pipe

Picked up my pipe from the post office this afternoon (after dropping by the mew Ducati-MV Scottsdale dealership grand opening--more on that later!), and installed it this evening after letting the bike cool down.
I'll just say it was harder than I had hoped, but easier than I feared.

Exhaust is definitley louder, esp. at idle.
I did not install the new eprom, as I didn't feel like taking th bike apart tonight. However, the bike is already slightly smoother below 4k, and absolutey rips past 6k. You can tell there is much less backpressure, but no noticeable snags.

Temp didn't seem affected, but I will be getting the headers and mid-pipe ceramic coated shortly.

Man, and I swear, I could feel the weight loss when pushing the bike around the garage

All in all, a very good mod.

Does the Arrow midpipe work with the stock headers and exhausts? Thinking of getting one for my 910S

Yes, straight swap. Most other midpipes too, if not all.
