Long or Short Performance TOR's

4235 Views 9 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  Brit26
I'm trying to decide on which performance off-road pipes to get put on my new 2006 SM. Dealer is going to remove the AI.
Which are louder, or which has best sound?
All things being equal, which provides the better performance?
Any re-jetting required with this install? I'm going to pull off the snorkel as soon as I get the bike shipped to me.
Need your responses ASAP.

Well,there's the reason for my question....the design of the free-flow pipe is estentially the same for both the long and short TOR's, but I'm wondering how the sound & performance compares between the long and shorts, because of the difference in the pipe lengths. I saw one post somewhere that implied that the longs were "tinny" sounding compared to the shorts. I'm wondering if the shorts may sound better because the exhaust openings are physically closer to the rider's ears.
Any further opinions or expertise?
