I like these

I purchased my 06 with these pipes on the bike. The dealer says they are D&H made for the Triumph America and are very loud.

There's probably a lot of people out there that would think I'm mad, but I usually take my daughter for a ride and it does get a little noisy. I'm after something a bit more subtle.

It's funny that quite a few people warned me off the Trumpy pipes saying they weren't loud enough......considering my options.

Hey guys,

just a further update (to my previous update).....

been riding the bike a bit, trying to get used to the exhaust. Whilst it certainly ISN'T the same note as the Test Ride Speedy I rode with TORS, I have decided to keep the pipes.

I guess my biggest complaint is that - away from the bike - it's a nice, throaty sound. It's the "on bike" sound that annoys me a bit, but I'm getting used to it. I've yet to do a long trip on it, but I think it'll be right.

My advice to people is ride a bike with EXACTLY the exhaust you are after. I found that even the dealer wasn't quite sure what was fitted to the test bikes I rode - not good. At the end of the day, I like the standard look of the long pipes, and I'm slowly getting used to them.

Peter

Nice looking bike. Is that a Corbin seat? Looking for one like that. How do you like it? Also what wind screen is that, looks great.

My BC Bombers should arrive today. I'll fit them on tomorrow morning and update you on the loudness factor.

So....changed my pipes to BC Bombers and I LOVE THEM. They have a lovely deep sound and look great. Not too loud. Noise isn't tiring during a long ride.

I highly recommend them.

loud TORS

I bought my 2012 Speedy with the Tors installed by the dealer and feel they are to loud for me also. I thought they would sound the same as the Tors I bought for my 2009 Bonnie SE. Boy was I wrong. The SE Tors were nice and throaty on takeoff but very acceptable at idle and cruise speeds. The ones on my Speedy are just to loud at all speeds for me. Guess I'm just to old for that much noise. Would love to sell them for $190.00 + shipping.

My only advice would be to wait and see if you get used to them.

I was absolutely gutted when i got mine - thought the noise would drive me - and others - mad. Now I am actually pretty used to the noise and plan on keeping them. This is from someone who had rung the dealer and asked for a suitable time to re-install the original pipes.

If you do it and want a little more silencing, you can always wrap the baffles. I did that too, but most of the wadding got blown away eventually. The bike runs fine either way, the baffles do not seem to cause any excess restriction. I tried the 8" baffles too, and they did screw up the running.

This is what I have, something like this. You would need the 42mm diameter baffles.

ps Just a thought, with a 2010 bike you may have catastrophic converters in the headers, so there may not be enough clearance for these.
Do you have any picture or drawing?
I have long TORs with some baffles removed and they are too loud to me. I thought that i have to find baffle that fits diameter of the pipe. 3". You came up with different solution. BUt i dont know how to install smaller diameter baffle. I would appreciate if you have any pictures or can draw how you installed those baffles.
