Mistral exhausts on a tbs 04 full video

Howdy folks, ive been busy working away on my tbs, replacing coils plugs air filter, cleaning carbs full custom spray job and the final ( well almost) upgrade, are these mistral exhausts.
I spent months listening to sound clips and narrowed it down to meccatwin ?899 and mistral ?600. After twoing and froing i went with the mistral, for that deeper raspier sound. The meccatwin ( who were very helpful sending on two soundclips) had a better oldskool look like the norton peashooters but the mistral had the better sound for me. I did a wee two minute vid from a brief look at the mistral before installing and then sound with , without db killers, a drive by and a definite thumbs up. Listen with earphones or proper speakers.
I talk through the 'without db killer' clip but cant be heard , basicly all im doing is drooling at the lancaster bomber sound!
Anyway i hope its helpful if anyone is interested.
Have had them on a month now and its worth every penny of the ?650. 600 + 50 post and package! Even got stopped by a cop to compliment the bike and sound! The dude had me bricking it for a while though! https://youtu.be/TjobZSdKklc

Thanks for taking the time to put that video together. I totally agree with you - those silencers sound amazing! Those are the bee's knees for sure.

Thats no problem at all Noel. I'm slightly obsessed with getting the right sound on my bikes so this was a labour of obsession for me ?

Howdy Zee I got them here http://www.mistralspecialparts.it/prodotti_eng.php
Alex is the man to talk to... they're an Italian company. All handmade . Great guy to deal with. The pipes are 600 euro and 50 euro p&p. Had them within ten days of order. They built them from scratch.
I found them buy trawling through youtube
This is their channel

Sounds much more aggressive. I agree with removing the db killers.

The Lancaster Bomber!

Hello Bikerpiper and fellow enthusiasts! After conducting my own search, and along with your strong endorsement, I have ordered the Mistral 'silencers' for my '04 TBS. They will be delivered following the Holiday period. My question....will I need to make carburetor adjustments following install? My TBS is completely stock minus a new Hagon rear shock. Thanks for your research and video!

Sounds great. Iíve never put the original silencers on my TBS, they are all wrapped up in the loft just in case they bring in a test for bikes here.
I have the thunderbird tors on mine they sound more raspy than yours.
Well wear.

Howdy Gottago
Like every bike a modicum of adjustment may improve performance but honestly theres no need to adjust carbs, just stick them on and away you go. Fuel consumption didn't change in the slightest and performance felt more guttsy .
You will love the rasp and your neighbours will look on in awe &#x1f609;
