    Have had my Thruxton R for almost 2 months and am loving it. Just decided to change stock pipes for V&H US spec. Am I doing the right thing? Will there be a noticeable improvement in power/noise?

    Welcome to the family. And simple answer is yes. Do show us a picture of the steed. And why don't you go on youtube and have to different options for end cans. I have the Norman Hyde pea shooters on my t100 and love them. There are so many different options it gives you a headache pondering what noise you like best. But I settled for mine as they had a fantastic gurgle. I also removed the air box snorkel.
    Ride Safe & Enjoy
    Joe.

    The classic is owned by a mate of mine. It was raced in the 1967 IoM production TT, with Lance Weil taking it to 4th.

    Hello Mark and welcome to the forum :)

    I remember American Lance Weil racing over here in the UK.
    If I remember correctly he was accused of using oversize engines whilst racing over here.
