Hi again,

I'm new here... this is great!

I got the close circuit pipes from Triumph on my Bonnie. I find them little boring and I'm looking for more ticker/deeper sound. Any suggestions? How are Sprint mufflers?

Cheers,
Ice-Rat

Thanks... what about re jetting for the togas - is a re jetting kit necessary? I'm not very mechanical.

Laters.

You'll get lot's of opinion's about this subject. If you like to retain the classic look of the bonnie the NH Togas or the Sprint mufflers are a good choice.

If you like the look of a reverse cone muffler, predators or staintunes are probably the best route.

I believe staintune also makes a classic muffler for the bonnie.

Good thing about the preds is they never need repacking, they use a mechanical style baffle...I believe the staintunes are the same.

If you'll stick with the TOR's they "open up" with age. Mine are pretty well open up now. I wouldn't want them any louder!

Togas are very popular. But I believe the absolute best sounding exhaust made is the Staintunes. Thaey come in both the burgess (stock) or reverse cone styles and they sound the same. They are pricey but being made of stainless steel they are a "lifetime" muffler and you don't have a chrome finish to worry about.

If you'd like to hear a short sample of their sound, e-mail me your direct e-mail address and I'll send you an mpeg I shot of my buddies Bonnie with them on it.

Hi ICE-RAT!

I'll be putting some TORs on this winter. I finally heard a set and decided they were what I wanted. Not a huge difference in sound - more 'old school' without being too loud (for me and my neighborhood).

Hey... how about posting some pics of what riding is like in Iceland. I don't suppose the bikes all have dragon heads on the front? :hihi:

Get Norman Hydes' Togas. I don't have 'em, but I want 'em. The TORs aren't loud enough.

I've got 'em and they are great. The closest you can come to the original looks and sound. You absolutely have to re-jet. For my T100; with the Togas, Norman Hyde bellmouth and Uni-filter; I run 125 mains and the stock pilot jets at 3 turns.

I'm partial to the Mototwin SS reverse cones, for their looks (On my wish list). I don't know about the availability though, awhile back Mototwin and Bellacorse pulled them from their pages. Anybody have better info on these?

The Sprint mufflers are also the EMGO brand, the EMGO's have been replacement mufflers on the sixties Meriden twins for years and are available through most vintage Triumph dealers, they have been labeled a 7 of 10 on the loud scale and I think that is pretty acurate, you can do a search under EMGO here at ratnet and find more info.

I saw on NewBonnie site the Sprint muffler. Thanks Ice7! Looks very classic and the sound bite is impressive. Anybody have experience with those?

I also found these at BellaCorse: http://www.bellacorse.com/bce037.htm

Quite cool also and affordable (incl. jet kit). Very classic look.

Cheers!

I too, wonder what happened to the Mototwin SS mufflers. I have a set on my T100 and they look and sound great. Glad I got mine when I did.

Mototwin had a huge sale prior to what everyone was told, their "moving" to a new location....


...sometime after this we were informed thru the grapevine that Mototwin was sold. I dont know tim cole, nor have I dealt with him in the past. I am however a self employed business owner...with morals. I'd never do something like this to my customers/private clients.

If you visit the mototwin site it appears nothing has changed...to me anyway. Maybe I'm wrong.

The silencers do look nice, I have considered a set of sprint mufflers or maybe even toga's. But black head pipes and chrome/stainless silencers dont do it for me.

I love my Staintunes (the upswept ones) but I'm not familiar with these other ones. Guys in the vintage club here have given them the thumbs up so that speaks volumes...

NH Togas are great. I went with 125 jets. I was next to a genuine Bonnie from 69 at a traffic light and our exhaust tones were pretty much identical. The older one had more loose types of rattlings from the engine but the tone was the same.
Enjoy!

I have these and they're nice. Nice sound and not too loud. The jet kit he sends with them is WAY off. I went with a Dyno jet kit and then the bike was great.
