      Hi Steve I'm thinking of going to stage 2 of drilling out the next baffles in my exhaust. Without removing the SAI is the popping much worse than stage 1, say 50% or less ? I want a deeper tone but it must be without Excessive popping. Thanks Phil

        Hi Phil, no the popping is still not that noticeable on mine and it's not constant like it was on my T100 without the secondary AI removed. I'd be happy if it did it a bit more to be honest!

        Thanks needed to hear from you especially, as you have done this mod Btw did you use the same size hole cutter ie 44mm from the first cut?

        Hi Steve i've removed the 2nd wall(baffle) but it was tough. I had to buy another cutter to finish the job. The sound is exactly what i wanted ,but no time to try it on the road due to work. Thanx for info Phil.

      Hi Steve, sorry to bother you but I've just bought some new silencers for my bike from the same place as yours I think - Ebay and BSA111. I received them today and I don't seem to be able to get a good gas-tight fit onto the existing pipes.They provide adaptors but having tried a number of different permutations they are either too slack or I can't get them on !!!

      Did you have any trouble?

      Cheers
      Dave

        Hi Dave, I overlapped the slots slightly as I got a slight leak when I lined them all up (thinking it would be easier to get the adaptor on). Make sure you line everything up on the bike and mark the position of the adaptor pipe relative to the silencers before you begin fitting them. (guess who didn't and then had one silencer stuck up like an anti-aircraft gun!) Takes a bit of fettling at first but stick with it!

        Well I fiddled and farted about with them for ages trying to fit them with all three sleeves but no-go!
        So bodge mode initiated and they're on ! Look and sound very nice too. Still got the baffles in for the mo'

        How are things proceeding with your bashed-up bike? Do you know when you'll get her back yet?Good job you have the other T.

        Bad news on the Bonneville - too bashed up to repair - estimate is £4000.00! Forks bent, top yoke possible damaged, gearbox casing split and box probably damaged and then all the peripherals - clutch, pegs, bars, light, exhaust ets. Good job I have the trident - stripped down at the moment having new airbox fitted and carbs cleaned!
