Antti, you`re a bit extreme.

No need for photos. :) The tube I mean can be seen on this 900 Duc header

Now it would be embarrassing if Rüdiger said it was in fact an original one :lol:

:thumbup: I mean just that "spaghetti" header !!! Very nice and my friend have just thatkind in his 888 SP4, but i quess, that it is not normal header from factory, but spare part (Duc Performance / Corse part, or such) with Termignoni's. I think my friend mention something such few years ago, that it is just designed for Termignoni's and he had normal header when he bought bike from Germany collector, but he had luck with Ebay to get full Termignoni set with just thiskind headers for good price. :thumbup:

Such header is designed by such way that both pipes are just exact same lenght what is "point" in those :thumbup:

We are waiting Rudiger's fotos of his headers.... :thumbup:

I'm so jealous I'm spitting feathers . . .

I just missed a cracking 888 Strada at Fallons last month.
Missed it by 3 hours.
And what did he say?
"Should have put a deposit down on it."

Ahhhhhhhhhhh . . . .

20:20 hindsight - we've all got it.

Great purchase and great bike, even if I do prefer the stock bikes, too.
Above all when they are Ducati...
One year ago, I missed an 851 sp1... :,( :,( :,( :,( :,( :,( :,( :,(

G: I cant see WHOLE headers well from that one foto/picture.... Seems it is only polished and original. sorry... Suitable foto from rear schock area will tell more, is it "käärmeenpesä" or no... :mrgreen:

For Higgy: "käärmeenpesä" means something like "spaghetti header" with allkind nice curves and exact dimensions to get "all out" from headers and output air flow. Can be seens such from all well done racing bikes with 4-stroke engines. I quess, this is "piece of cake" to You, Higgy :) 2-stoke engines those dimensions are much accurate to get "all out from engine", but lenght is then not so important compared to 4-stroke's :thumbup:



So, the Bike is in my Garage now. And here a picture of the Spagetti headers

Obviously designed by an engineer with time on his hands....and no concept of mechanical access. :banghead:
