That's actually a starting bid. Hard to tell what they will finally sell for, if there is a reserve on the auction and there is no decatted pipe with them. (plus 60 bucks shipping)

Hey guys thanks for the praise, I'm enjoying them, they look and sound great! Also, best way to get a hold of Frazer Norton in Australia is go to their website & call Eduardo (Parts Manager) at the Concord AU Ducati location (Tel: +61 28741 3000) OR send an inquiry via email asking for the exhaust (which is what I did), I emailed them at - norton@frasermc.com.au - they responded promptly within 24 hours and the entire process was smooth and handeled via email. Very very nice guys to buy from. The CEO / Owner of Frazer Cycles got my email and forwarded it to his aftermarket parts team manager, Eduardo was my contact - great guy. Good luck, and remember to pay the DHL duties on the phone with DHL when the package lands at the final destination hub or it will be held up, gotta love US taxes/customs haha! Good luck!

So they are. That's about the amount of damage to the set I'm replacing. Insurance paid for it.

Glad to hear your digging the sound of those exhausts, no doubt they look great on your bike!

I bought a set too along with the DeCAT pipes from Eduardo @ Fraser's of Australia, wired my funds to them today. Once I get them and get my ECU remapped I'll post some photos as well as a
sound video here on this thread (if possible) so others can get a real feel for their sound.
