I haven't noticed any issues with the Remus exhaust burning the turn signals. I have the DP led ones that are smaller and never noticed any kind of heat damage. I recently got and R&G license plate holder and now they're slightly up from the OEM position so heat damage from the exhaust is not a concern for me.
Checking some pics on the web, the Shift Tech exhaust seems to point slighty upwards compared to the Remus or OEM exhaust and if it's already burning your turn signals it probably gets in the way of most saddlebags you might find.
So far I haven't noticed any heat issues with the bags either. As you can see on the pictures on other comments above, the SW Motech support bars hold the bags above but also outside of the exhaust tip, so it's harder to get them burnt like other bags that just hang freely and can swing in front of the exhaust if not tightly secured (it happened to me with Cortech bags, they're very well made but I wasn't thorough while securing them and they swinged towards the tire and got a big hole at the bottom)

sorry for the old thread resurrection. I have a question for ilmostro69, or Nomad. How are the SW motech bags holding up with the remus exhaust? Any heat issues long term?
the reason why I ask is, i just had to return home from my first planned trip with my bags because my shift tech exhaust was getting the bags too hot. The semi rigid plastic below the fabric was starting to deform. I was already having issues with my turn signal turning brown with the shift tech, but I kept using it, because i looks and sounds great. The shift tech provides much more clearance than stock, but the shift tech points the exhaust more upwards hitting the bag. I cant exactly tell from pictures if the remus points upwards less so than the shift tech. I either need to get a new slip on that is compatible with the bags (remus or other), or swap back to stock exhaust when I need to use my bags. I don't want to go back to stock exhaust because I already have a rapid bike and new air filter.
Anyone that doesn't have bags want a shift tech exhaust with about 800 miles on it, DB killer included?

I received the pipe and installed it today. Clearance for the SW Motech bags is MUCH better than the stock pipes.
The Remus pipe is excellent quality manufacturing. Sound is great and the I think the power is a little more, it seems like the front wheel lifts off the ground a little easy when it did not before.
I did try the pipe with DB Killer in and also out. I prefer the sound with them in. Just a little less harsh and a little deeper. They are still loud with the DB killer in, just have that harsh edge taken off. The DB killers do not actully block the airflow directly, they just reduce the diameter of the air flow a little.
I think the pipe looks great, shows much more of the rear wheel.

|ilmostro69||Wow the clearance is way better than the stock pipes. Can't wait to get the pipe. Still haven't received it yet.|

About the clearance with the SW-Motech saddlebags. I just installed mine and the clearance is great, I don't think they'llget burned by the exhaust. Below are some pics.

I had the slip on termis without the cat-with the ECU remap on my 1200S for a year and a half until this spring. With DB killers it sounds fantastic and was not a problem for road use. Just about right. With DB killers out it's a little loud for some tastes but still not bad. It stands out, even at Ducati group track days. I've had a couple people comment that they could always tell when I was on the back straight.
Benefits for me:
1. Sound, including nice pops on runoff. Deeper, less clacky than stock
2. Looks. I love the carbon, proportions are just right for me with the tail tidied up and plate up under the seat.
3. Horsepower-It's there, but less than 10 on top of 145. Remember when 145 was a lot of horsepower? I could notice the difference, but only pulling hard out of a corner with the front lifting a bit. For normal road use, what's the difference between 145 and 152 horsepower, especially with all the torque these bikes have?
It's this one:
Looks like I'm going to have to sell it and get another for the 1200R with a different bracket and map key. Can't find just the bracket or the map key for the R. Termignoni and Ducati dealers aren't particularly motivated to help me out with this one. If anyone's interested in a good deal on the used exhaust with the USB map key for a 1200S, PM me and help me ease the pain. I miss the sound.....

|Nomad||I think it's a good choice, at least sound wise you won't be dissapointed. Let us know what you think...|
