Hey guys I am new to the forum and looking for an answer!

I picked up a 2016 959 and am currently prepping it for the 2019 race season. I have found a number of threads about this topic, but I can't seem to find a definitive answer...so your help will be appreciated

I realize the 899/1199 has a different exhaust from the 959/1299. However, there seems to be mention of a Termi link pipe that can be used to fit a 899 exhaust on a 959.

I can only find the link pipe that will allow the front exit exhaust to be installed D155Y1299 from the motowheels site).

I have found a number of used REAR exit 899 exhaust for sale but not really any Front Exit exhaust (I would prefer the rear).

Does the mentioned Termi link pipe work for the rear exit exhaust as well? If not is there a link pipe that will allow a 899 rear exit to fit?

Thanks again

Joe

The mufflers fit all Panigale models exc V4. The link pipe is needed for the 959/1299 because it uses a V-band clamp where 899/1199 uses a 3-bolt flange. You can see the clamp just below exhaust valve near the rear tire under the swingarm.

What exact link pipe is this? I've only found a link pipe that says it fits the front exit Termi D155102CPT.

Is there a link pipe to connect 899 slip-on 96480221A to the 959 stock header pipe?

I assume the D155Y for the 899 will have the 3 bolt holes around the flange, while the D155Y2 will just be the rounded flange with no bolt holes?

They use the same stock photo for both sizes.

So if I am reading this correctly, you could use the 899 exhaust on a 959 and vice versa with whichever link pipe mates to your mufflers?

Like if I wanted to run 1299 header pipes but mate them to my 899 termis... you would use the D155Y2 to do so? Where can one purchase just the link pipe?

That's the idea. I'm currently working on this project now. I have on order the 899 Termi Slip-On and the D155Y2 for my 959. If it goes as well as I think it will, the adapter will allow the slip-on to mount to the stock 959 header pipe.

The D155Y2 adapter is available from several ebay sellers. I ordered it for $150 shipped. Comes from Italy.

Technically, the D155Y/D155Y2 are made to mount the front exit D155102Cpt termis to the 899/959. But I'm hoping the rear exit 96480221A termis has the same inlet size and positioning so the adapter fits.

Please update this thread with pics/info when you get it. I am very interested!

Turns out the adapter is not compatible. Is completely different. The diameter of the pipes are larger and the angle of the pipes is longer. Overall the D155Y2 adapter is much larger than the one than comes with the exhaust. So it looks like the only option is to change the entire header pipe or somehow customize the original adapter.

@Hellfire Beats - what made you think the 899 exhaust parts are compatible with the 959 parts? They are not the same diameter, therefore are not interchangeable. I recall the 959 being half inch larger in diameter.

The Termi mufflers use an adapter that attaches it to the stock header pipe (shown in my photo). The pipe diameter is not the issue. The mounting flange on the 899 is what is different from the 959. So I was trying to see if the adapter for the front exit exhaust would work with the 899 termis. Termignoni could easily make an adapter that fits the 959. But I think they wanted to move forward with the new exhaust design with the front exit design.

If you search on YouTube, there is a bloke who has mounted termis on his 959.
Uses 1199 mid pipe and 899 slipons.

I would like to do the same

Yup. That’s what started me down this path. But I didn’t want to change the header pipes. I only wanted to do a slip on. It could work with some cutting and welding of the adapter but I didn’t want to do that either.

Maybe we should petition Storm Performance to make 2 adapters so you can run 899 flanged slip-ons on 959 mid pipes, or vice versa, 959 slip-ons on flanged 899 mid pipes. :)

Hellfire if you send Phl a message from the ducati.com forum he will sort you out, he gave me great advice when I wanted to attached 1299 headers to 1199 term's on my 899. The link is below for a couple of things he had for sale.

If you PM me I can give you his email address.
