Something I have learned with these carburetted Triumph engines. They don't like premium grade fuel. If you are using it, go down to mid grade and it will pop a lot less. It may still pop. Just not as much. All three of mine grumble a little, but not bad. Even the one with stock pipes. ...J.D.

Anyhow, since two pipes go into one exhaust and one pipe goes into the other one, are the internals the same? I would think the one with the two headers would need to flow a lot more exhaust. Just wondering cuz there are a ton of Bonneville exhausts on E-Bay and thinking about picking a pair up. Since they'r two cylinders, I would think the Bonnie pipes would be identical.



Thank you!


Those are multiple questions and there are lots of choices but too much info to type. Pm me and we can chat on the phone. I've tried about 6 types of mufflers on my Tbs and would gladly share the insight

Zee, I have a 2004 TBS running stock everything (air and silencers). Bike runs very well but so quiet....I have just ordered a set of Mistral silencers. In your learned opinion, will I need to make carburetor adjustments following installation? Thanks for your time!

I run with pea shooter togas, they are completely empty and criminally loud.
Only rejetted when I modded the air filter because the mix was too lean.
Never had an issue while interchanging pipes of different sorts, if not that with silent pipes I speed because I can't hear how fast I am going. And feel lame.

I went and bought a set of Sprint pipes for my Adventurer. I liked the sound with the stock baffles but turned out they were to restrictive so I pulled them to which the pipes were way to loud for my taste so I went and made my own baffles with parts bought from e-bay and Tractor Supply!, Happy camper now.( pic's are of my first attempt, I have since made a better set )

When I owned my Adventurer I bought the factory TORS it was better than standard but still got some custom headers and cans made anyway, I still have the TORS and original headers in the shed somewhere 4 Triumphs later...

The OEM pipes are super heavy and so long that they need to be removed when taking my rear wheel off. Wish I can drop pictures in this forum wo having to link to somewhere else. The Emgo shorties are nice. Not too loud when idling but will roar when opened up. Hope I donít get pulled over.

Usually jetting only needs to be changed if you remove the air box and add pods. Doubt you will need it just for a muffler change. I donít have the air box and am running 42/145 jets with factory pro needles one shim up.

Thumbs up Exhaust Popping

Just noticed you have been trying Jets to stop the popping, I did the same for about 4 years and eventually gave up, just recently I changed the Mikuni carbs to Kei Hin(with a jet kit) and not a pop since. Better idle,smoother roll on throttle and no pops, only regret is I didnt do this years ago

Those that ignore the past are doomed to repeat its mistakes
