Smile 2004 TBS pipes options ...

Hi all, hey I know they'll be a thread somewhere on this subject but I've never been any good at looking for stuff, so ...

What are the options for after-market pipes for a 2004 TBS? (I live in the UK, so shipping from the States not so good).

Thanks in advance

Try here. When I bought my bike it came with TORs (Triumph Off Road) silencers fitted, which sound really good, but had started to rot through on the underside

TORs are as rare as rocking horse poo and many have had them rot through. Roy at OS Pipes made me a pair of silencers in stainless, which polish up as good as chrome, won't rot and sound great. He will make them as loud or as quiet as you want. He can make the pipes as well if you want.

My bike is the second Thunderbird Sport down in the list and as you can see he made them a bit smaller than the standard/TORs and I reckon they look just right.

I have Staintunes on mine and they sound great. They came on my '04 when I bought it, which was a good thing for me because they are kind of pricey.

I looked at the exhausts on that OSpipes webpage. Those 3 into 3's are beautiful!
I like how they are more upswept than the D&D's, and the bends in the pipes I like better, too.

I called the number there and talked to a gentleman who told me he didn't do them anymore.
But he said a guy/outfit in Dorset bought the jigs and was going to start building them!
I did a bit of a websearch, and there are 5 pages of firms listed as doing stainless steel fabrication in Dorset, England on hudco.

Can anyone on that side of the pond maybe find out who is building these 3 into 3's now? All stainless would be so cool!

Thanks,

Maybe throw the question over to the T3 Sport Touring section Charles?

I'd say it's likely only a very small specialist operation, some of the active S3 guys in the S & W of UK may have heard something?

Thanks guys for the replies. Guess I'll stick with the standard pipes for now and hope that Santa brings me some TORs for Christmas.

I wish you luck finding TORs. Epco's are about all that's out there as far as a quality slipon goes.

I've heard good things with Epco's, but my experience wasn't that great. I placed an order and that was the last I ever heard from Tom (I believe that was his name). Contacted him several times, so maybe something happened *shrug*
