Arrow 2-1 Baffle

There is a Triumph part number for the baffle - A9608137 - It comes labeled as 'DB KILLER, ARROW 2:1'

I obtained one from my local dealer in UK last year.

Hope this helps.

After 5 yrs of TORs, I went from TORs to Arrow 8 months ago. I like the look with Arrow, but I know the TORs will likely be going back on at some stage to get back the sound I loved.
