I ordered my bike 3 years ago with the long tors since nothing else was available at the time , so I am curious what difference I could expect with Hogslayers instead, I like to get out of my neighborhood w/o pissing people off but like to hear them when on it, From what i have read I might not expect much in the way of power increase over tors(?)Anyone go this route?

Hogslayers

Well, you won't piss anyone off in the neighborhood and they sound great when your on the highway or when you get on it. I can't talk to the power comparison because I never had the TORS but my guess would be that they are about the same. I have seen several on here that have had both so maybe they can help with more factual power info.

Why are you ditching the long TORs? I'm looking at putting on the long TORs at some point down the road -- probably not this year but next -- and am curious what about them didn't satisfy you?

Hogslayers are holding up very well. I can see a very slight gold tone around the bend where they attach to the header pipe. I'm sure it would polish out but it's so slight that even I have to look twice to notice it.

I have the short TORs and like the way they sound with the Big Bore kit. One advantage of the TORs is that Triumph has a tune for them, assuming you keep the cat box.

Once you get into aftermarket mufflers and cat removal, you have to get into retuning, either with a Power Commander or with available software (Tuneboy, TneECU).

Depends how much effort and money you want to put into it for a few HP or louder sound.

I installed the short TORS last Friday. I really like the sound and appearance.
Is the triumph tune available ? I have a cable and tuning software.
My dealer is far away.

The TuneECU site has TOR (aftermarket silencers) for 1600 and 1700 with and without secondary air injection, which you probably don't have. When you load a new tune, do the reset adaptation under the ECU tab or in the Tests function.
