Those are the exact same ones I have. Got them off E-Bay also.




Here's a before





And after I drilled out the end screen.



They are wide open now. Pretty loud.

I don't know. I drilled it out before I even started it up the first time. I saw the screen and didn't like the look of it. I wanted free flowing pipes. The baffle with the fiberglass packing is easy to remove, just three sheet metal screws to remove the cone and it pulls right out. Nice if you ever have to repack them. Leaving it alone may have silenced them a bit.

Kliff,
If your worried about the adaptor buy from specialty spares, Dale sends you the adapters and extra clamps with the megaphones. If you wanna get em from jc whitney you can get the adapters from belacorse for like $30. :upthumb:

The adapters I used came with the mufflers from Speciality Spares. He sends everything you need. It was an easy bolt on.

what happens with the kickstand, tho? does it just limit itself without hitting, or what? cause the stock mufflers have that rest on them for that

I didn't do anything with the side stand. It didn't hit the mufflers. The center stand needed a stop added. Here's my rigging I made to fix it.


This is with the bike on the stand.



This is with the bike off the stand.



All I did was drill a hole in the stand next to the frame and put a bolt and nut through it. When the stand goes up it hits the nut before it hit the muffler.

Hey LP.....were you able to get the center stand to retract in a slightly higher position....giving a better lean angle for "spiritted" riding ? I tend to touch down my center stand on some bumpy corners at 40-80 mph, sure would be nice if yet another benefit of these mufflers were a slightly higher storage position of the CS....

Kliff,
I don't know if it retracts any farther than before. In the picture it looks like it could do up another inch or so, but then I think the pipes or the pegs would drag before the mufflers.

Nice video. Sounds very familiar, even on my 790 Bonnie. I like it when you can hear the bike long after you can no longer see it.

Kliff, here is a video of my Thrux with the Emgos

Emgo Shortys

I used the Bellacorse adapters.

They are nice and loud.
Are those outta the box, with un-modified baffles....????

I would have liked to heard a "drive by" at a steady speed, not being hammerred.....but I think they will fill the bill quite nicely...

I ended up with 140 mains, 42 pilots, 1 shim under the needle. No air box and K&N cones. She runs pretty good, can't wait for nice weather to really see.

Yup, those are completely unmodified straight out of the box. I have my AIS removed with 3 turns out on the pilot screws.

Steady speed? On my Thruxton? Ha ha ha ha!

Going a steady speed they are still relatively loud, but manageable. Whenever a cop is in the vicinity I just let up a bit and it is fine. I think they sound the best going around 90mph - sounds a lot like one of those old warplanes. Well, to me at least....
