Hypermotard 1100S Termignoni repack kit

I'd like to repack the exhaust on my 2008 Ducati Hypermotard 1100S. I have the full Termi 2 into 1 racing exhaust and to my knowledge it has never been done. I now have 9500 miles on the bike and assume it should be done. I have seen kits for other Termi exhausts that come with the end bands, packing material and rivets. Any idea where to source these parts? So far my internet searching isn't pulling anything up.

Don't bother, it will be at a huge markup. All you need is a drill bit, rivets, and exhaust packing that you can get at Cycle Gear for like $20 a roll.

Awesome, thank you. What kind of rivet tool is good? I have riv-nut tool but not a normal rivet gun. I imagine you can get stainless rivets? Is there any particular thickness of packing to get? Thanks again.

I'll see what I can do. Since it is cold and raining/snowing in my neck of the woods this project will most likely be delayed until spring when my garage is above 34 degrees.

Just curious why, after only 9500 miles, you feel it needs a repack? Seems to me it would last quite a bit longer than that.

I canít seem to find any solid information about it but after talking with a couple mechanics that all said it should be done I decided to look into it. On dirt bikes the frequency of a silencer repack is much greater. I know, apples and oranges.

I've heard the same thing about dirt bikes as well but figured that was because they don't have all the emissions crap street bikes do, causing the exhaust to have a lot more "crap" in it which, in turn, causes the packing to go bad faster. No idea if that's really the case or not but I've never heard of anybody repacking a street bike exhaust unless the packing was falling apart and coming out the end of the can, usually after many MANY miles.

Two stroke dirt bikes are more particular about exhaust packing because the oil is mixed with the gas, fouling the packing earlier. If you've ever ridden behind a "two-smoker" many times that is a sign the exhaust needs to be re-packed. Four stroke dirt bikes are more tolerant of exhaust packing being neglected, but Forest Service regulations caps noise at 99db's. Have yet to see that measured or challenged out on the trail but keeping things quiet(er) never hurts. Even though FMF says repacking the silencer for my dirt bike improves performance I have yet to talk to anyone that agrees.

On my Hyper I'd like to keep things quieter for my trips to California. I've also heard that exhaust gases can deteriorate carbon fiber and would rather not trash the Termignoni silencer can. The mechanics I talked to said there is no performance change, just a quieter bike. Ceramic exhaust packing is apparently more heat resistant and easier to work with, followed by S-glass. I was told to avoid E-glass packing. None of it seems too expensive so come spring I'll likely give it a go. If nothing else I will see what is in there and have an idea of how long I can go between repacking.
