Yes you did & thank you for the advice
Mufflers ? Real scramblers don't need no stinking mufflers !
Oh, old Triumph desert sleds eh?
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...
Not sure if I'm allowed to advert a seat like this, if so I can delete the post.
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
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.
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?
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
...two up no less. I apologize in advance if this old news.

Static sound clip, not the best but hope you get an idea

Same at ya holmes.
T-Day style meal here tonight. Burp
Awesome pic Santa
Just showing the playing with ideas....essentially info for anyone toying with a 900ss style fairing..
No I did not want to buy a Bonneville or Thruxton....yes I love what the Scrambler is, should be, can be.
Just for 'shits and giggles' really.
I put it on hold for a more OEM Scrambler for the southern summer.
Amalgam of Norman Hyde TX fairing mount and Hyde Harrier Jubilee mounts.
Not quite there yet, 19" front doesn't help the look but can drop forks up to 20mm more.
It is a very good quality fairing by the way (for a Hyde Harrier specifically speaking) and comes with twin Cibie headlights as a kit from Norman Hyde.
View from cockpit looks purposeful and symmetrical...I love it!
Aaah that's better...stripped for southern summer...as needed more thought on bars, moving or attaching indicators, moving ignition etc maybe next year :)
Showing > single seat with Thruxton cowl instead of rack + Thruxton cup bellypan + street bars flipped upside down + Scrambler number board acting as the fly screen.
Awesome! Thanks for the vid Terry. They sound sweet. A little smoother than the TORS as far as I can tell. Didn't realize they were so $$$! I'll have to plot and save a while if I want to try those out.
Anyone interested in some Thunderbike pipes? Trade for some Staintunes perhaps?
I thought I would report back in as to what my problem ended up being.
For those that are interested and those who took stabs at my dead bike diagnosis, it ended up being a bad ignition sensor. It was a bit of a time for final failure find as I was busy chasing fueling and then headed over to spark.
This was the link that headed me in the right direction and Page one was all that was needed to find the bad pick-up.
If any of you experiance a bike dieing and think it is fuel related, I suggest you look at the crank position sensor.
My fix was less than a three hour job after parts were in place. Be sure to order a new Right Side engine cover allong with the sensor.
The sensor part # is T1290131.
This was an easy diagnosis from person that makes a living swinging a hammer. To tell the truth, it is the first time I have ever used the ohm's of resistance portion of my mutlimeter and it was fun to perform the duties myself.
I bought this bike to harken back to a tyme when a bike was something you could keep on the road through your own accord. It seemed to be the last multi cylindered air cooled, carbed machine in existance and though I am a little concerned that it failed in the way it did, I did not need error codes read from a laptop to fix it.
I hope that this helps any one that runs into dead bike syndrome. Do take a look at the link, it is good knowledge to add to your bike brain.
wow! and well done.
