I recently purchased an 09 696 with termignoni exhaust. I'm not new to bikes but this is my first Ducati. How do I know if the exhaust is slip in or full system? Also, does anyone wrap their headers? They are obviously older and not the best looking. The previous owner purchased it with them already installed. TIA

A Slip-on system consists of just the silencers and short pipes which connect to the "Y" pipe under the seat. The full system consists of all the pipes right back to the cylinder heads. There will be no O2 sensor ports on a full system. The original header pipes on a slip-on system may still have the O2 sensors or may have the ports blanked off.

The exhaust valve that uuu refers to in the previous post is not a feature on 696 Monsters. It is only on the larger engined 796/1100s. Its main job is to strangle the exhaust at certain revs so the bike passes the drive-by noise pollution test in the USA. The 696 isn't as loud and gets by without it. As a result the 696 has little more storage room available under the tail since the actuator motor isn't required.

We have partially wrapped the headers on my wife's 796. We didn't do it for performance but to try and reduce heat transfer into the frame, therefore we only wrapped the section where it passes close to the frame. We also added carbon fibre covers on the rear subframe to add further insulation between rider and bike.

The exhaust on this bike consists of SC Project slip on system attached to a 696 "Y" pipe, O2 sensors removed, and a Ducati Performance tune loaded into the ECU.

We mostly ride in hot-dry conditions on rural roads. So we have also added a bash-plate from a Scrambler and a stone guard to protect the oil filter.

Keef.
