View Full Version : Staintune Silencers
12-07-2002, 12:26 AM
The Staintune people won't be thrilled to hear this, but I ordered a set of their removable silencer nozzles from their Falco pipes. I was able to modify the silencers to fit the ends of my Leo high-mount cans. They are held in place by a removable screws. With the silencers in place, the bike is 6 decibels quieter. I will ride the bike on the street with the silencers in place. At the track, I can remove the silencers and go back to that pure Leo roar.
I will post pictures when I have a chance.
Leo has a new can for a Triumph that has removable end caps with silencer inserts. More aftermarket manufacturers should offer this option.

Great idea. I've thought of doing the same thing with my Aprilia carbon cans - think they're too loud.
Heard from someone else on this board - that Two Brothers also sells a product call 'Quiet Tips'. Does the same thing. The Staintune baffles sounds like a better idea - since you can remove 'em if wanted.
Wonder if the Leo cans are the same diameter as my Aprilia carbon cans.
Where did you purchase the Staintune baffles?

i called twin brothers a few weeks ago to inquire about the quiet tips, and their rep said it was a really bad idea to place such items on large vtwins. something about the strength of the power pulses and possible damage to the top end of the motor. anyone else heard similar statements?

I puchased the Staintune silencers directly from their USA office. I am familiar with the 2-Brothers quiet tips. They are a pretty low-tech metal plate with a hole that is a smaller diameter than the aftermarket silencer. The Staintune are easier to install and remove. Regarding the 2-Brother comment about damaging the engine, I don't agree. My Leo cans with the Staintune silencers cannot be any more restrictive than the stock Aprilia pipes. Over the past few months, I have been alternating beteen the stock pipes and the Leo's. I have no engine problems with either set-up. If the Staintune silencers were a bad idea, I can't believe that Staintune would offer them for their own pipes. The silencers that I purchase were specifically from their Falco pipes.
