Can anyone recommend a supplier in the UK of replacement balanced over stub
exhaust pipes that fit correctly for 1971 model year T100R Daytona. (part nos 70-9662 &
70-9663)
I got a set from Feked marked 9662/3 LFH which seem very good quality but do not fit correctly, even though assured that they were made using original genuine Triumph tooling.( LFH = L F Harris ???)
When snug up against the cylinder head they are too high at silencer end & have to be pushed down to fit silencers which upsets fit at head end.
They seem to have a bit more of a curve on them than the original. Bending is not an option without damage.
Any assistance or recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

Firstly, welcome to the Forum.

Hmmm ... according to the parts book, '71 pipes have different numbers - 71-2037/8 - 70-9662 & 70-9663 are certainly for a '70 and probably earlier. Otoh, nothing else appears to be different so perhaps Feked think they can supply the same pipes for different part numbers?

Perhaps a chat with L.F. Harris (they're in the Torquay, Devon area)?

Hth.

Regards,

Feked list the same spokes for a 7" TLS braked 18" wheel and for an 8" TLS braked 19" wheel. The factory specs say the length of the spokes is different as is the gauge eg plain 8G on the 18" and butted 8/10G on the 19".

Don't have enough experience of your bike to recommend and alternative supplier but do not go to Armours unless someone has the exact model bike and can confirm they fit, they operate a deny its our fault policy.

Ime, it was a "your T160 must be non-standard, but we can make you a one-off system? Send us another [lots of] pounds" policy. I'd owned the T160 from brand-new ... whistle

+1 for Armours. You may as well burn your money. I still have a set of stainless pipes which didn't fit my T100R because there must be something wrong with it despite giving him the original Toga pipes as a pattern. He has a later T100R himself with push in pipes so he is probably ok for those. You have to cut down the pipes supplied to fit them as they are made oversize and then he will not refund fully as you have altered them.

It took me over 9 months to source some that fitted. In the end I got some manufactured by Wassel but not without returning non fitting ones and in the end had to get a longer balance pipe made as they seem to be made individually and the balance junction was further down than normal. They did help out though and sort the problem in the end and unlike Armours they do actually have a T100 as a jig.
I have heard that Tri-Supply are quite good but have not had first hand experience.
Good luck!

As a dealer when fitting exhaust pipes we used an American baseball bat (with the nub on the end cut off) in the end of the muffler/pipe to make final adjustments. It's only in a dream that the factory pipes/mufflers fit perfectly!!!!!!

I've never had exhausts from anywhere, that fitted without brute force and often cutting and shimming too.

I have used a cleft in a tree to bend or straighten them out a little.

I'm not saying it's a good situation, by the way.

Funny you should mention that TT as I have a special tree outside the shop for "adjusting" exhaust pipes. Dick

Fwiw, I got my '69 T100's exhaust system from L.F. Harris not long after they started the push to improve the quality and fit of parts by going back to the original drawings. The only thing wrong with the exhausts is the traditional Triumph 'silencer ends not quite level' which can be eliminated by the order of doing up the various clamps.

You do kind-of hope not ... frown Even if it'd been brand-new just before the 1973 sit-in, "original genuine Triumph tooling" would now be nearly forty years old. eek Suspect it's the usual 'dealer' [***] trotted out when (the wrong?) parts don't fit. mad

Hth.
