Just installed Staintune Pipes,K&N Air filter, Tach as well as removing the air injector from my America. The Pipes sound great and I will soon be taking her on a Test Cruise. Over the winter I added some chrome Primary cover,Chain Guard,Battery cover,and rear Passenger Foot rest brackets.
All I can say is it looks Great....I will add some photos soon. :cool: :-D :-D :-D :cool:

Thanks again for the help with my Tach....Triumph Riders are the Best!!

I have just removed the restrictors from the staintunes on my speedie. Ran with them in all last year, sounds OK but not loud. I noticed the pipe is straight thru and heavy.
Do you have the restrictors out ? Is it too loud ? Is all the weight from a ceramic pack around the tube ? I checked the staintune site but they don't give any design info. If running with no restrctors, are the plugs burning hotter ? I will be getting the bike out next week and will let you know my results.

Haven't run mine without the restrictors ,I love the way they sound with them in. Brings me back to my younger years when I owned my 69 Bonniville. Use to run TT pipes on her once in a while back in those days.
I do think I will need to shim the needles,I noticed a flat spot in the mid range.

I have Staintunes on my '04 T100 and leave the restrictors in. I have taken them out and it is too loud for me and there is less power according to the butt dyno. Yours may be calibrated differently.
