To make a long story short and jump right into the point, my bike fell a few weeks back, insurance adjuster ok'd all the repairs and pointed out to my dealer that my muffler was all scratched up and maybe I wanna fix it. So the insurance guy adds the muffler to the repair. $795 for a stock ducati muffler. I bought the pipes off ebay and sent them to Strati to have them cored out. Ofcourse they were scratched, they were used when I bought them. Anyway, my dealer suggested getting a set of Remus pipes for the money I was given to spend on 1 ducati muffler. Will I be disappointed? He told me they won't be as loud as the cored pipes, but they will be better for the engine. I asked if they could get me a set of Two Brothers because they were even cheaper yet, but they already ordered me the Remus. Again, will I be disappointed? I'd hate to spend the money on the pipes and not hear them. I love sounds!!
