Thanks for the info Louis , maybe I won't cut them up!
I've also heard that the D&D's are a little *loud*, ahem...
....sorry officer , I didn't hear the siren... what?...speak up man...
perhaps not that loud, I've yet to hear them myself.
I'll wait for the reports to come in from those guys
who have them fitted.
>>Beardg>>>>My D&Ds are going on March 15th.......Hope they're not toooooo loud
as to have the neighbors hating me. I need all the friends I can get! My man
Jim Pidgeon(certified BMW mech,works outta his house in Manchester NH) will
be installing the silencers, drilling out the epa plugs, and setting the
carbs. He told me that the Triumph shop should have done this when they did
the valves and synched the carbs. He says without properly setting the mix
screws the bike will never really reach it's full potential, and that the
screws are often wayyyy outta synch when they come from the factory. Pretty
much follows what the service manager from Howells told me on the phone.
All results and setting will follow ASAP.

gas, individually, to about 2.5%CO, and synched the carbs, my mileage
dropped by about 10-12%. No big deal, but no more 200 miles per tankful.
;^( Noticeably better throttle response. With the slip-ons, you may need a
bit more tuning than just idle screws.
The roses weren't in bloom,
so we just hauled ass.

<< BTW, I was in Greensburg Motorsports, Greensburg In, last week and a
customer had a blue Trophy with D&D carbon fiber pipes on it. After
hearing it run, I went to the parts man to place an order. Sweet. If the
owner (someone in Indianapolis) is on the list, you should be ashamed of
yourself for corrupting innocent middleaged farts like me.
