Hello to all fellow Triumph owners. I live in north Lancashire in England. I have a 2005 Bonnie in orange and white which I've had since January 2010. I also have a Honda VFR750FT, so I couldn't have two different bikes, but both are cool for different reasons.
I may as well ask a question straight away. I've put some new 'silencers' on my Bonnie. They're a lot louder than the standard ones that were fitted, so that's good! When I decelerate or change up gears whilst wringing it's neck (a little bit), the silencer end backfires a little. It didn't do this with the standard pipes. I presume the mixture through the carbs is a little too rich, so it's just a case of rejetting them? I've heard it is simple enough to do this.
Otherwise, it is running and sounds great.
