High Flow slash cut pipes - long or short ?
whilst test riding a couple of bikes the other day I noticed a huge difference in the sound that came from both.
Apparently the America I rode came with short slash cut pipes, whilst the Speedy had long pipes.
The America was the most horrible annoying sound I'd heard - to the point I wanted to jump off it and leave it on the side of the road, whilst the Speedy sounded fantastic. It sounded very good at idle and on accelleration, but cruising it quietened right dow.
Is this the case normally, or did that America just have a crappy, noisy exhaust? It was a barking sound which was good at first, but just a drone over the whole trip. I hated. it. The dealer just told me that was the only difference between the 2.
Just to confirm, these are the Triumph Accessory High Flow Chrome Silencers....the speedy apparently had the "long" ones.
