Dont worry Jure....the Termi open pipes came with the mesh K&N air filter which is installed...and they kindly provided a cut down open air filter cover also...which is back on the bike...I left the stock one on just for the photos.....What I should have done was put a bank of Keihin FCR39 carbs in though....but I got a good deal on NOS mikuni 38's....at only 85 euros from the same seller you bought your side panels from.......It does need rejetting though....plenty of flow thru with the pipes...and air....but now needs more fuel

That is such a beautiful machine, so much better than stock! I do have a question, tho, about the photography. What sort of suplemental lighiting did the photog use? That can not be available light!

Very keen eye you have there Spike and evidently a keen budding amateur photographer yourself.......Each of the 3 times that a Photographer has been to piccie some of my bikes they have each had supplemental lighting...no matter what the weather/sun is doing.........they use large flash lights on adjustable high level stands...each with its own 12volt battery supply linked in to radio transmitters geared to his camera, that also has a top mounted flash unit....all lights directed on to the front of the bike from the sides........the cameras themselves have been at least 40meg resolution....and a conservative estimate of the camera gears cost has been 15-20K for a full set.........The retort stands, flash units and remote radio links he reckons are the cheap parts though........but yeh...every time theres a wait for each shot as he waits for a high pitch tweat from each light unit to let him know that its ready to flash again.......

The bike looks superb and the photos are fantastic! Every part on the bike looks tip top right down to the last but and bolt.

You tidy up alright too Steve, sporting the matching Ducati shirt Cool
