I mentioned elsewhere my disappointment after bafflectomising standard carb' type silencers (no cats) after having tors. I lost a big chunk of mid-range torque, enough for me to need to put the 18t sprocket back on.
The bafflectomy doesn't lose torque from what you have on a standard pipe, I was talking about compared to tors. Sorry for the confusion. I've edited the original post to make a bit more sense, but I'll try to put it a bit more plainly, this is just the latest in a littany of exhaust posts of mine. This is a list, not including any airbox, mapping or Ai stuff, to avoid further confusion.
1. efi bafflectomy, in the stickies
2. efi header cat'lectomy, in the stickies too
3. attempted/failed cat removal from silencers (in the efi bafflectomy thread)
4. s/h togas very old set. lhs one rotted through from inside out
5. s/h tors, from ebay, didn't like the 'not for road use' script plastered over them for traffic wardens to see
6. s/h early stockers (no cats) failed stage 2 bafflectomy with pointy rod, loss of torque from tors
7. fitted feked stainless long silencers, joy, wunderbar, all I want from my exhaust at last.
that's a good few threads in a nutshell for you.
I mentioned elsewhere my disappointment after bafflectomising standard carb' type silencers (no cats) after having tors. I lost a big chunk of mid-range torque, that I had when I had the tors fitted, enough for me to need to put the 18t sprocket back on. I just fitted these stainless throughout, straight through silencers from feked.com They are similar in size and appearance to the standard silencer, only slightly louder than the bafflectomised stockers, no incriminating 'not for road use' statements emblazoned on them, great build quality and £297 delivered. That's a lot cheaper than the chromed steel aftermarket pipes I had before the tors, one of which rotted through from the inside out (that's another story)
Anyhow, the best bit is, I got my mid range back and the bike is a joy to ride again
