I didn't notice any change in power delivery after putting the Termis on my 1100. The throttle is still a bit jerky, that's just the way it is. Of course with the baffles out it sounds like a war zone and attracts a suitable amount of attention from passers-by.

I'm going to stay out of any further arguing on this, but my preference is to leave the 15t. I like the "jerkiness" as some call it. They aren't impossible to ride, nor are they even difficult to ride with the 15. When I first got my Paul Smart I thought that the gearing was all wrong, then a week later I never thought about it again. With that said, I will add this caveat to the mix, in the last 10-12 years I've owned over a hundred different motorcycles from 50cc 2 strokes to high HP liter bikes, and everything in between. I feel that this experience has led me to the point where I can just jump on any bike and enjoy it for what it is without the need to worry about the gearing or any particular quirks. It's the quirks that I live for.


Some will say the 14t was the best mod they ever made, some will say the throttle tamer is the best mod, some will say that the 2 combined was Heaven on Earth for them. Then I've read a couple of replies from others that took that advice and did not like the end results and went back to the 15t. I've heard really negative replies about the Throttle tamers from those that did not like them, they replaced it faster than the sprocket. Those owners felt that the 2 mods may have smoothed over some of the power delivery, but in the end they felt it took away the soul of their Ducati experience by turning their Italian beast into a tame Japanese 4.

Personally I think the best mod you can make on any of these bikes, at the price point of a sprocket or throttle tamer, is a dry lithium cell battery like Ballistic or Shorai. You remove up to 10lbs of weight for $100-150. Plus no worry about acid drips or burst cases that leak acid gel.

Agreed mike. I do not want to smooth out the bike and make it more japanese. I actually like the fact that this bike is not the easiest thing to ride in town. The 15t is staying

I thought about a 14t, but I've gotten used to the various speeds at 4k rpm, and I've also gotten better at parking-lot speed maneuvering. So I don't plan to change it.

I'd sure like to try out a Scotts steering stabilizer before buying one though. People seem to rave about it.
