Thanks to all that contributed to this thread and the many others concerning the Termi install, this was my first exhaust swap and it went pretty smoothly for me. I only had one screw seize up, the old exhaust came off pretty easily and the Termi pipes went on smoothly for me as I used some lithium grease on the outside of the Termi pipe, I replaced all the hardware attaching the heat shields because of the corrosion. Heal-Tech servo installed along with Smart-Moto O2 sensor eliminator kit, CEL went off during my second ride and she's running smoothly and now growls like a beast. I'm still debating on whether or not I want to keep the stock map or install the UP-MAP or do the Rexxer ECU flash, she's running smoothly at the moment and I haven't noticed too much difference between cold start take off's of the OEM and the Termi exhausts. I can say it does feel less restricted and the weight loss is always welcome, baffle is in but man does it make my Shoei RF-1200 vibrate quite a bit more now:LOL: .

Cheers🍺

I ran the Rexxer flash on my 939 with a Competition Werkes pipe. It wasn't a night and day improvement but it was super smooth and I believe I noticed a small power gain, but always hard to tell without a dyno.

Hey @manofcole79, with the stock map, are you getting much popping on deceleration?

I installed a RapidBike Easy at the same time as the Termi and I’m getting a lot of popping on deceleration and even gives a pop when changing gears.

Its got the baffle out at the moment. I’m going to put it back in to see if the extra back pressure improves it.

I can confirm that with the baffle back in the backfire will disappear and you will only be left with the back crackle, I had to put my baffle back in as the cops were getting reports of drive by shootings

The guy from RapidBike (exemplary after-sales customer service!) suggested my issues could possibly be caused by an air leak in the exhaust. So I had a bit of a root around on the SS this afternoon and found one of my header nuts a tad loose. I gave it about 3/4 of a turn and now it’s ’snug’.

The baffle is back in now so tomorrow‘s commute is the test run.

It's my reckoning that the popping and baking is caused by the air injection. It is only there on a closed throttle below 2,000 rpm and with the OEM exhaust it is still there but barely noticeable. I keep meaning to block off the air injection hoses to see if it stops the bangs but I haven't had reason to lift the tank for a while.

Given how restrictive this cat is its no doubt the free flowing exhaust causing the HP gain. Increase exhaust expulsion should equate to more oxygen being taken thus stronger combustion. This would be optimized with the upmap and new fuel curve to match the increase in air. The CPU will compensate to some extent with the increase in air, this is why they say that the upmap is not required and the other brands arn't selling an upmap one.

For the nerd approach.
Increased engine output increases our torque. Torque is force time length (either wheel or crank radius). Decreasing our weight, decreases our mass. F=ma -> a=F/m. A decrease in mass and an increase in force = a lot more acceleration >:).best motherboard for video editing
Power is not increased by losing weight. Definitely.

Hi everyone, after a troubled year I'm back here considering to upgrade my exhaust to the Termi. I came across this Italian shop called Sonic Racing Parts. Has anyone bought anything from them?
They seem to have the termi with a 30% discount, right now it's the lower price I'm seeing, for Europe.

Has anyone ever tried to run the Termi without the baffle, but with the "baffle-in" UpMap?
My termi is finally being shipped and I'm thinking about options. My plan is to keep the baffle in (based on my readings in the forum and YT videos it should be more than good for my needs), and buy the baffle-in map. Occasionally I run track days, and for those I'd like to take out the baffle, without necessarily having to buy a new map just for 3/5 days a year.
Does this make any sense?

I rode with the db killer in for about 4k miles. Have the baffle in map. One day out of boredom, I took the db killer out. Took about 5 min. I was shocked at how much better it sounded. So I put the killer back in to see if my ears were playing tricks on me. It’s now in my box of parts never to be seen again.
I wouldn’t say it’s a lot louder, but noticeably deeper. It sounds like what I think a Ducati should sound like.
For what it’s worth, I dropped the db killer screw into the slip on, so I had to dismount it and fish it out. That took like 5 extra min.
Did you end up buying the baffle-out map, since you decided to leave it out? Or did it run well enough with the baffle-in map?

Race use only :(
Installing such an exhaust is clearly not an option in most of Europe.

At least Austria, Italy, Belgium and Switzerland are also very strict regarding exhausts.
