Tors

Hi everyone. I'm a newbee here. Just ordered my new Triumph Speedmaster (Matte Black) and want to get Short/Long TORS to beed up the sound a bit.

Do i have to do some sort of 'running in' before i change to Triumph TORS?

Also, do the short and long TORS sound the same<

Thanks for your feedback.

I can't tell you the difference in sound between the short and long tors, however, I can tell you that there is no run in period required. Many dealers sell new America/Speedys with TORS already installed. You will probably need the dealer to remap the ignition profile to richen it up.

+1 on remap...you will need that. my friend says sometimes i still run rich and he smells it. i have remap and long tors...

my dealer said you might want to wait after the first service/run in period.
which i did. people do typically wait until after run in/first service to do that...not saying you can't though i dont know enough to comment on if you can't

Skip the TORs and go for some British Customs pipes. I had the cocktail shakers.. they sound awesome. But if u want a more traditional look.. go for the Bombers.

yes the TORS prob have the most conservative tone. but for me it's plenty enough on acceleration...trust me people will hear you...but at idle it is next to nothing really.
never had the others due to them all being louder...not what i wanted at my age

Many suggest (including myself), waiting a while to install the new pipes, that way you at least know what you had vs what you will have and can appreciate those hard earned dollars spent on the upgrade. I personally love my TORS, had them installed at 700 miles and I'm glad I did.

It's understandable that more mature riders would want something more muted and dignified. I'm sure when i get older I'll be doing something similar. However, since I'm only 66 yrs old I bought myself a set of Bub's. Listening to my Ipod while riding mutes the roar enough for me. hahaha

Thanks for your feeback guys. I was going for the TORS since they are not TOO loud. I like the sound of the BC Bombers. Are they much louder than the TORS? Doesn't seem to be that much of a difference on the Vids posted on You Tube. A nicer deeper sound.

When you live in the middle of the best motorcycle roads in the country, have motorcycle riding weather all year long, and have two great motorcycles, you spend many, many hours riding.

When you ride you either have to think or listen to music. Thinking gives me a headache, so I listen to music. Actually I can still hear my Bub's while I'm listening to my music and they sound great. Especially at full throttle going through the two lane twisties. Life is good when you're retired.
