A great alternative for very little $$$

Bought a couple of slipons , did some fabrication work to make them fit . imo they look better and weigh a fraction of the stock pipes + a deep throaty sound . Cost me around $100 .

I dig the slip-ons! Sound clips?

The heat shields look a bit off/bulbulous, but that's based on photos.

bare in mind the stock exhaust Is probably twice the diameter + of these pipes , so the heat shield may look a little big in the pics ,but in the flesh ( iron ) imo look fine ...I did have to tweak them a little though .



Ill try and do a sound bite .

Undershoot. I had almost mentioned "in person prob diff" in my last most. My slip-ons did not allow for the shields. They are thin at that point, so the shields remain on the stock pipes.

Love to hear the sound! They do look great!

Or you buy some additonal inbetweens (part 3 and 4 from the T120: Triumph Bonneville T120 Black motorcycle parts for Exhaust System | Triumph Motorcycles | triumph-select-model-part | Triumph Parts | Triumph Clothing | Triumph Accessories) to connect the cans to the rest.

Good to see others going their own way, Marvelous.
I fitted these goldies, to S/S big bore headers from Verex, had to modify them a bit too.
They cost much much less than usual aftermarket rip offs, + I think they sound the biz.
