So the Meerkat would need a tune because it flows more than Eddies.

JJ, there is flow and there is pressure:

full flow with no back pressure does not mean better performance .
performance is gained by balancing the ratios between air in, fuel in gas out, back pressure and the timing of the exhaust pulses,and the reverse pulse shock wave and its duration in the header pipes.
the meerkat maintains desirable header pressure while allowing increased gas flow .
The Tor tune is recommended by Triumph even if you leave the cat box in place and install aftermarket slip-ons.

Whatever it takes to have a bike that you enjoy and want to ride, is the right choice for you.
cheers

I thought I should keep an eye on this out of curiosity.

In australia the Meerkat crossover , sells for $320.00 including pack and post( the $20.00) .If it's paid for with PayPal they take $8.50 from me=($291.50)

To the US it's $375.00 for the Crossover which includes pack and post of $66.00 and PayPal fee $13.50 = ($295.50)

If I send two Crossover pipes to the US, the pack and post is $85.00 and PayPal fee is $25.00 ($110.00) my cost

2 pipes with multiple unit discount =$600.00 +$85.00 pack and post= $685.00 (342.50 AUD , $245.00 USD each )at the current exchange rate, delivered.

The Ebay one sold for $197.50 USD the seller paid ebay fees and the buyer may have postage costs .

Worth watching thanks for the heads up .

I was gonna snag that ebay one but I'm still waiting for a title for my bike and my daughter said to slow down on buying stuff for it.
Probate court takes a long time.

Be careful with British customs hogslayers !!!!! They say on website that original heat shields fit with the new redesigned pipes BUT THEY DO NOT!!!! .... after 3 months of back and fourth emails and calls they finally said they were not willing to spend time on resolving the issue or giving a discount for all my time lost and troubles , attached you will see how they look installed from rear view . British customs said it was a matter of opinion on how they are supposed to look on .. you guys tell me ...as you can see they clamp on the end of pipe and create a big gap and isn’t flush up against pipe like stocks ... the clamp too big to get the pipe end ... will keep y’all updated with a solution on how I did it

The Jack-be-quick elbows are completely hidden by the exhaust shields, if you are using the stock exhaust or TOR mufflers

Jack elbows came with no instructions. Can someone give me an overview of what needs to be done?

[QUOTE=Jammin'John;2003860580]Has anyone changed the exhaust ? Is there a nice deep sounding pipe available ?

I bought the after market long pipes from Triumph. Nice rumble when you get on the throttle but low key at start and 1st. I am happy with them

After the cat is removed place the elbows on the "engine side" of the exhaust and clock the elbows to line up with the mufflers. Install mufflers and move everything to where you want it and tighten the clamps. Then install heat shields.
