Always thought the TORs are a bit too long for the aggressive look I wanted so when I found these chrome exhaust tip extenders for small cars I could not avoid buying two and try them out. Cost me less than $10...

They fit right in the clamp on the headers so it is a 5 minute job to fit them.

I did not rejet or anything just took her for a spin and enjoyed the sound:D

Actually they are not as loud as I thought, a bit quieter than the EMGO megaphones I intended to use this season.

I tried to make a video but my stupid camera filters out most of the noise so it was no fun watching :-(

Thank you! The only thing that disturbs me a biit is the bracket for the original muffler. It's welded to the frame so not much to do about it...

Well done!

You've got me looking for something similiar. I agree with you, it's a much more aggressive look. Thanks for taking your time to post that.

That looks great!!
I like!! And now you've got me thinking!!

The only thing you could do with the original bracket would be to cut it off if its not to your liking..
But then I suppose it'd be a problem if you (or a future owner) wanted to return the bike to stock.
Unless of course it could be modified to allow it to be made bolt-on, or even rewelded if required.

I'm off out to my shed now, to see what I did with my original pipes!!

Here where I live I we have a bi-yearly inspection where the bike has to be returned to original. The same goes for being stopped by the police, in addition to giving me a ticket I have to go in to one of these inspections showing that I am "legal" again. So cutting off things is out of the question for me unfortunately :mad:

Great idea funstuff. I wouldn't worry about the bracket... it is black and nearly disappears. I didn't even notice it in the picture until you mentioned it and I went back and looked. The two short pipes sort of draw the eye.

I wonder if anyone has considered such a rig for Bonnevilles/Thruxton? Pictures?

And funstuff... are there any baffles with those short pipes or are you running striaght pipes from the motor with them on.

Sounds great. Nice post.

The only visual design flaw with the scrambler has always been the long exhaust. Triumph should step up to the plate and design a shorter stock system. However the current design would not stop me from owning one.
Your on to something with your short set up. Personally I love it, but would have to have some sort of muffler to quite things down. It would be legal where I live but in other parts of the world it just wouldn't do.
Good job!

Those pipes look great!

No sure, but could have a negative impact on performance. Not much volume there, reversion and lack of back pressure can have a negative impact on the ability to get a full cylynder charge.

If I could see around corners I be looking at the exhaust valve, so as staight and empty as they could be. I just did this for fun and have no measurements of what it does to performance, feels OK driving though.

My Scrambler is no lightning anyway just loads of fun:Happy:.

JC Whitney sells bolt in baffles for open pipes. 5 bucks a piece. I have a set for my Bonneville just in case the mounties give me any problems.
