No, They are just a Google image result. But I have seen some like them for sale on eBay that's how I knew they were about......

The kits will be sent out with an alloy insert to take the bore down to 25mm. it will take the edge off it.

Today I have bodged in a 22mm copper coupler with a reducer from 22 to 12mm, fitted it within the supplied 25mm internal dia DB killer. Nice and quiet now with a distinctive rumble, should get me thro MOT, I had forgotten how smooth a cub could be.

I rode to work this morning without any db killer, following a Triumph Speed Triple, you should have seen him do a double take in the mirror when he heard me rumble up behind. Even more of a dirty look when I overtook him in traffic.

Oh the joy of cub ownership

Love it! :D :D

The Golden Nugget has just put a 140 lump in his bike and has had to fit the same zorst out of necessity. Then tonight we realised the MOT was out! :roll:

Might be we could steal your idea for a simple solution, any chance of a bit more detail? I have some 22mm copper in the garage.....

:D :D :D :D :D

LOL, Clashed with his post above..... :lol: :lol: :lol:

I'm still interested to be honest, as having the bike noisy all the time isn't brilliant... It is fun sometimes though, so I like the idea of it being removable!

Will upload them tonight.
When the copper fittings were in, the whole bike felt smoother. I'm with you though, I do like it loud, when you roll up behind or pass a plastic rocket or harley, the look on their faces is priceless, expecting something much bigger :D :D
