Long or Short Performance TOR's

4239 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.

I have long slash cut TORs - to my ears they're great, nice rumble cruising, bit of a snarl revved up. No other performance mods made. I read on one thread either here or that someone had problems with the short pipes because the end of the exhaust is vertically below your head, rather than a foot or so behind it, so the noise level to the rider was a lot louder, especially when wearing a full helmet. He changed from short to long. No idea whether that would be true for everyone.
