    Keep in mind that most of the muffling is happening down in the catalytic converter, so aftermarket endcans don't do much to wake up the sound. Something to factor in before you pay the crazy amount of money some of these companies are charging for an endcan.

    Thanks for the response Mike. Youíre right of course, and normally I wouldnít bother as Ducati are pretty good at producing a decent sound within the limits but it seems like the men in suits have beaten them this time. I bought a 2018 950 earlier this year and loved it so much that I knew, almost from the beginning, that I would be getting an S. So I test rode one a few weeks ago and it was everything I was expecting and more. There was one thing that almost stopped me buying it though, and that was the sound. Itís euro 5 (I think) as opposed to the euro 4 of my last bike. Itís not just that itís not very loud, it just sounds weedy! Oh well, I guess I will just have to get used to it and enjoy the bike because, in every other respect, itís the best bike Iíve ever owned.

    I'm interested to hear your thoughts on the QD Power Gun slip-on you have ...
    Tempted myself.

    Any concerns about warranty ? I wonder if Ducati would say it's not OEM so you're not covered?

    Are you riding with/without DB killers?

    Morning Ian, the exhaust fitted the bike without any issues, DB killers removed and it has a beautiful sound and even better when the exhaust valve opens.
    I've fitted end case to all my bikes and never had any problems with any main dealer and warranty.
    PS I've not tried it but was told to just fit the top DB killer if you wanted to reduce the noise but its not as loud as the SC projects can i had on my last bike.

    Those SC projects are definitely too loud - just a short straight pipe I think.

    Did you fit the slip-on yourself ? Easy enough ?

    Sorry for all the questions!
