The pipes are done in high temp powder. The powder claims 2000 degrees but we will have to see.
The heat shields in regular powder and have be done for a while.
Phase one was the shields about 3 months ago. Phase 2 were the pipes, mufflers and assorted hardware items.
I need a few more phases to,finish. I pulled the shocks off earlier today. I figured out how to get the springs off and will powder this weekend.
2010 that I bought new. Bone stock up until recently.

Shameless Plug.

I don't know if y'all have see this, but I'm selling my single seat w/rack, which I used on my 2010...

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=849988

Not sure if I'm allowed to advert a seat like this, if so I can delete the post.

Thanks.

Could you (or anyone else with the Staintunes) post a video to give an idea of the sound? I have the TORS and Thunderbike pipes, but I'm not really happy with the sound of either and would love to hear some options.

I ran Norm Hyde Toga silencers before my Zard. People would walk over from the other side of the parking lot to tell me how good they sounded. I think there are some sound clips on youtube.

I had TORs on as well, I found them very loud at idle & they would bark a bit
under load.
The Staintunes are very nice at idle, has a more grunty sound & makes the bike sound like a Triumph & not a HD.
They are legal in Australia (ADR approved) 91db @ 3700RPM with the baffles in, 96db out. Don't think I will ever remove the baffles.

I have Staintunes on the Thruxton as well & even though they are both listed as 91db the Thruxton is softer....360 crank verses 270 crank, just that thump from the 270 crank.

My mate has a Arrow 2-1 on his Scrambler & he likes the Staintunes better. We're off on a ride tomorrow so we can check out the difference.

Not cheap @ $1200 aus but worth it, might try to get a video with the gopro & post up.

Hi Terry

Interesting you find tor's loud at idle although they definitely bark Mine are reasonably quiet at all speeds unless on the gas (LOUD) or closed throttle when the snap/crackle/pop gets going (again loud). I've ridden a Thruxton with staintunes right behind my Scrambler and could only just hear it over the Thruxton at cruise throttle. I was surprised actually. The Thruxton sounded softer as you said. The legal aspect is a big plus although at a substantial price hit....

I like the golden glow on yours

Was there a noticeable performance difference between the tor's and staintunes?

cheers

Mark

Not a lot in the performance, it does seem to rev better & not run out of puff, with the TORs it seems to make more noise as the rpm increased but not a lot more power but with the Staintunes the power increases with the RPM.
My mate was impressed with the grunty roar, we swapped bikes so I could hear it & yes it was good...very pleased with the result
