You're damn right I wouldn't.

Don't mean to sound like an old man, but I paid less for my brand new '87 Ninja 750R than what they're charging for that slip-on
Inflation.

:ROFLMAO:

I'm with ya in the fact that is pretty steep for an official Ducati exhaust. Even if it is titanium.

How would I rate this experience? One star. Would not recommend.
This was a timely response as yesterday I had an interesting experience myself.

The local Sunday gathering spot at the local gas station sees their fare share of Duc's pull in. Usually they are in the Euro-bike groupings where they all ride together. It was a colder day in FL, so the turn-out was lower than normal. Be that as it may, a middle eastern guy pulled in on his Ducati Monster. He was apparently out of gas so he pulled up to the pump. He parked the bike, slide his credit card in the slot, and opened the tank ready to refill.

The only problem was he was at one of the 4 diesel refueling pumps at the rear of the station where the bikes gather. No less than 20 of the other riders there inquired about what he was doing and to not put diesel fuel in his bike. His response was "it says diesel only on the tank" and "the opening is bigger to allow the handle to go in". He had just picked up the bike as a rental from a friend or shop apparently. After some serious discussion about Ducati never making a diesel motor and that the Monster Diesel being a model of the bike, he didn't believe us. He pointed to and clung to the badging that said "Diesel Only the Brave Diesel" on the tank. He squirted 2.2 gallons of diesel fuel in it. The rest of us started putting money on the table and taking bets on how long it would run. We stood around, pointing, snickering, and placing our bets.

After several minutes of him standing around, and to prove us all wrong, he hit the starter button. Of course it fired right up and he blipped the throttle a little bit as to reinforce his claim and make the rest us look like the idiots. That's when the exhaust started putting out the thick smoke and the motor wanting to stall. He revved it again before it died. He looked around at it, went off to make a call on his phone, and came back to ask us what he could do to it to keep riding. We told him to call a tow truck. That's when he turned the ignition switch on and pushed the bike to the other side of the gas station with the left blinker flashing. Never did hear the outcome of his dilemma over all the laughter. Poor bike.

They don't call them DoucheCati Owners for nothing.

Skydork, please tell me that's a damn joke and didn't happen in real life.
I shit you not. Not one word in that post is sarcasm or a joke. It is a true, sad story. Honest. I would post up some pictures or video of it if I wasn't so focused on watching the carnage with my own eyes.
