If I did my research correctly, you have a Thruxton and, if so, the TORS are even more dramatic than those for the Bonneville. From what I've read, the Bonneville TORS are baffled whereas the Thruxton versions are straight though. Mine, along w/ the factory TORS map, really woke up the engine, sound wonderful - but aren't loud. I've received compliments on how mine sound from several friends who were quick to point out another friend's aftermarket mufflers on his T100, though a wonderful tone, are too loud.
That's not totally correct - I have the Bonneville versions of the TORS on my T100, and I can confirm that they are a straight-through design. You can see light all the way through the pipe. Not sure if there is any baffling, etc in there, but they don't have the maze of different chambers in there like the stockers.
Sorry for the miscue Mike, I was going on what I read here a few months back that led me to believe they weren't straight-through. I'm curious, do you recall if the diameter is the same end to end? The Thruxton's are and it amazes me they aren't louder.
About 10 years ago, when I first started researching the "new" Bonnevilles, there was a lot written about the TORS being only a little louder than stock. I have a friend w/ a T100 that has TORS and they sound really healthy - I wonder if the design was made freer-flowing along the way?
