stainless pipes by feked.com

guys,

I mentioned elsewhere my disappointment after bafflectomising standard carb' type silencers (no cats) after having tors. I lost a big chunk of mid-range torque, that I had when I had the tors fitted, enough for me to need to put the 18t sprocket back on. I just fitted these stainless throughout, straight through silencers from feked.com They are similar in size and appearance to the standard silencer, only slightly louder than the bafflectomised stockers, no incriminating 'not for road use' statements emblazoned on them, great build quality and £297 delivered. That's a lot cheaper than the chromed steel aftermarket pipes I had before the tors, one of which rotted through from the inside out (that's another story)

Anyhow, the best bit is, I got my mid range back and the bike is a joy to ride again

Not bad price considering they're stainless. Less than the NH togas at least, and they look a lot better.

I assume you need the additional bends as well. What are the chances that they'll fit on my '09 SE?.

bends included

Forchetto,

They came supplied with stainless bends, which have a hidden clamp bolt. They're a nice curved shape like the standard pipe, although they sell a cheaper angular chromed bend too. I don't know if they'll fit an SE, but here's the link to the Hinkley bit of their site: https://www.feked.com/shop/index.php?productID=575

here's a picture of my (stainless) link pipe:

I am thinking bafflectomy on the T100 but just the end baffles and no punches straight through and leaving everything else the same. (air box, etc) Do you think that will cut the mid range or did you go further?

But great sound and great price on those pipes. Wonder how much with exchange and shipping to Canada.

whoops!

deluxe,

The bafflectomy doesn't lose torque from what you have on a standard pipe, I was talking about compared to tors. Sorry for the confusion. I've edited the original post to make a bit more sense, but I'll try to put it a bit more plainly, this is just the latest in a littany of exhaust posts of mine. This is a list, not including any airbox, mapping or Ai stuff, to avoid further confusion.

1. efi bafflectomy, in the stickies

2. efi header cat'lectomy, in the stickies too

3. attempted/failed cat removal from silencers (in the efi bafflectomy thread)

4. s/h togas very old set. lhs one rotted through from inside out

5. s/h tors, from ebay, didn't like the 'not for road use' script plastered over them for traffic wardens to see

6. s/h early stockers (no cats) failed stage 2 bafflectomy with pointy rod, loss of torque from what I had with tors

7. fitted feked stainless long silencers, joy, wunderbar, all I want from my exhaust at last.

that's a good few threads in a nutshell for you.

Thanks johnyC,..didn't mean to cause you any grief

I've read a bunch of your stuff as well seen the videos. I really appreciate your efforts and am sure I'm not alone in expressing thanks.

Did you have to remap? Can't remember earlier posts of yours if you gutted the airbox, AI, snorkel, etc.

feked update

boys & girls,

I took my bike up to be dyno'd today, just to see where I was with the feked pipes compared to the tors. The only things different from the last tors run, was that I used an open ended Triumph paper filter instead of the Unifilter (I had to cut up the Unifilter to make a new filter for my Beamish)


I'm sorry about the poor quality of the charts, the printer at the dyno room only worked in b/w today, then my scanner went for a sh!te, so I had to take photies of the charts instead:


It shows the feked pipes make a bit more power and torque than the tors, no great surprise there, but my fuelling with the Arrow 2/1 map is now a bit on the weak side (was a bit rich with the tors from 6,000 up) I can't really do much about this with the Triumph maps available (wish I had carbs) and Willie the dyno guy (who sells, fits and sets up power commanders) said it wasn't really worth the extra £500 or so to flatten the bumps with a pc111. I'm delighted with the way the bike goes, the 19t is going back on tomorrow, but if anything the seat of the pants feel is that she's really getting a move-on where the a/f is at 14, then spins right through to the red.

here's the previous dyno run with tors, for comparison:

Wrote to them (feked.com) to enquire if those stainless silencers might fit my 09 SE. I thought it might make a change from my Arrows, giving me a true Triumph sound and enabling the fitment of the centre stand, unlike the Arrows.

This is the reply I got today:

Sorry, I rarely get told what models they are fitted to by our customers

Thanks
Gordon


Obviously wasting my time there...
