Looking for some voices of experience and wisdom here, failing that I’ll take whatever you throw.
I am taking my Bonneville T100 in for its first 500 mile service tomorrow morning. When I called and booked it in I asked whether it was worth upgrading the exhaust to the Vance & Hines slip ons. The guy in the servicing team told me they make a bit of a difference but not a massive difference. He suggested a better (and cheaper) alternative would be to switch out the catalytic converter and replace it with a TEC x pipe. This would give me a nice bit more volume and sound and would add a touch more power.
I have done plenty of googling and forum reading about this and I’m still on the fence, so I’m interested in the worldly wisdom of this forum.
My concern is whether it might negatively impact anything (warranty, stability, legality, performance, whatever). Also, wondering if anyone else has done the same with a new triumph water cooled v twin 900 and what their experiences and opinions are.
Also, I was asked if I want to borrow a loaner while they service my bike. I said yes, and now I’m wondering what they’ll give me and if that will result in me deciding to take a hit and trade up for a new bike (ahem, @learningtofly)
Thanks in advance for any input/abuse.
