The reason I asked for tors is if I'm forced to keep the underseat set up I want it to look original. None of the above do that otherwise it's a lowboy.

Uh? You want it to look original . . . but not look original. How does that work then?

Given a choice I'd go for the lowboy look; you could probably get a decent fabricator to decat the OE headers and cut/shorten the pipe to link to a lowboy style after-market can. Can't see that being expensive.

Thanks for your input.

I'm not blaming triumph or the bike. I'm actually blaming myself for making the wrong decision.

I have owned this bike for about 6 months now and choose it over a tuono. In that time I have been constantly looking for an exhaust. I have owned an aprilia before and know them well. They have a great support network with some very knowledgeable people to help out. Also parts are readily available and come at reasonable prices even for the earlier models.

My experience with triumph is that if the bike is over 5 years old they dont seem interested (my experience by the way) I have tried on numerous occasions on numerous platforms to source the solution to MY problem with the bike. I have been riding for over 25 years and never had this much hassle trying to find a part that will do what I want. You might say I'm selfish but it's my bike and if I want it to sound different that's my choice.

I do agree the bike is nice but not perfect if I can find a solution to my issue I have no problems keeping hold of it but it appears that solution is a lot further away than I'm willing to travel. Having said this I would rather sell and move back to something I know.

Hopefully someone will come up with something soon.

OK, that's fair comment, though I have to say that ........

"This is the second triumph I've owned and the second time I've felt the need to sell after 6 months starting to loose faith."

and

"Really disappointing as this is the second triumph I have owned and the second one I've had a bad experience with. Wont be making this mistake again."

 ........  do rather read (to me) like a personal statement of, at very least, severe disappointment with the brand/name/model and the perceived problems you face. 

I currently own Triumphs from 1967; 1970; 1971; 1992; 1993; 1994; 1995; 1996; 1998 & 2010 and, whilst I wouldn't say that some spares are exactly easy to find it's usually possible to get something.   It may require additional effort and probably requires additional cost but, in my experience, that's the 'cost of entry' to the game.  I could be bitchy and suggest that 'if you want the best .....' but that's just a demonstration of a personal bias to which I'm happy to admit!

I honestly don't  know if Triumph are any better or worse than other manufacturers in support and supply of parts for bikes older than 5 years - I suspect most manufacturers will have similar approaches to the EU legislation that governs vehicle manufacture and spare parts supply, though I may well be entirely wrong in that wholly subjective suspicion.   I think the problem you face is that you're looking for something (TORs) that probably wasn't made in huge numbers; wasn't particularly popular when it was made, and is long since out of production, so you face a near perfect storm of adverse circumstances and, in my opinion, it just feels wrong to blame the ship for the weather you're sailing into.  Apologies for the rather strangled mixed metaphor but, hopefully, you'll get my drift - pun intended!

I'm sure the Tuono's a lovely bike and, if you do sell and transfer your allegiances back to them, I do sincerely hope that you are happy and are able to get the parts you want and/or need.   But, when you sign back up to the Tuono forum, I hope you don't blame the messenger for the message and denigrate Triumph for failings that I suspect are pretty much industry common, despite your previous good fortune.

Bear in mind :-

"Triumph Motorcycles global sales in the first ten months 2020 have been 42,242 units, down 1.9%, one of the best score among premium brands ..... "

"Aprilia global sales performance in the 2020 is almost negative with year to date May sales down 37% ...."


A small but signiificant glimpse into the stats. and one that would worry me, personally, if I was looking to invest in any way into the Aprilia brand's product line.  But, that is, of course, all down to personal choice, circumstance, preference and bias.

I wish you luck with whatever choice you do decide to make.

Regards,

Adie

Spent the day yesterday calling lots of people dealers and aftermarket suppliers cannot get a system that fits the look I want and within a decent budget. So reckon its gonna be going up for sale this weekend.

Really disappointing as this is the second triumph I have owned and the second one I've had a bad experience with. Wont be making this mistake again.

Hi Speedyboy,

Isn't it a bit drastic to get rid of the bike just because of the sound?, there are some good choices of end cans out there (i have a 2011 bike with twin under seat Mivv pipes) but it all comes down to how much you want to spend. There are some great sounding pipes for around 400. Something like Arkopovic or Yoshimura are mega bucks at 700 - 900 but are very exclusive. Like a lot of people i wanted some Arrow Triumph cans but prices were over 500 second hand when i was looking so had settled on raiding the savings for some Leo Vince units from a dealer in Italy (https://www.ebay.fr/itm/POT-DECHAPPEMENT-LEOVINCE-LV-TRIUMPH-STREET-TRIPLE-675/361782385875?hash=item543be91cd3:g:E5IAAOxyzHxRNLub ), but managed find the Mivv ones from a tuning shop which was having a clear out for 350.

Have you thought about getting your standard ones opened up and modded to change the sound as thats all TORS units are in essence.

That sounds like a good shout to me Mr ninja. standard looks with a bit more noise and probably not too expensive either. sounds like a win/win situation.

That's also what I said earlier, but my post does not seem to have gone thru. What I said was a friend of mine did this years ago, and he had the welded earlier cans. The later 2011 - 2013 cans are riveted, so that must be eaven easier to do ... go for it....or take a look at my slightly dented Lowboy  :028:

I've had a look at that but 13 on so not a straight forward fit.  I have bought a set of standard cans but the slightly later ones with riveted end caps. Gonna do a bafflectomy on these and see what they come out like.
