Sure, however you stand to lose some low and mid range torque. You also may need to rejet your carb.

I would like to remove my exhaust(stock) from my thruxton, but if I leave them as straight pipes, what will be the reprecussions if any? Its a 2014

You will need to change main jets and adjust carbs because of the back pressure change. Make sure the straight pipes are at least 24 inches long past the head connections or you can burn your valves.

Remove and replace starter solenoid assembly for 2002 Triumph Thunderbird 900

Hi. Unfortunately the manual for the TB 900cc is not part of my collection. I have some technical documents for TB 900 and I may have the service manual for the TB 1600.
The best manual for TB is probably the Haynes. The manual is available from the link below:

Ive got a truimph bonneville t100 2008 exhust pipes tuening blue at the head and golden by the silences is this detremental?

It is 100% normal and caused by the exhaust heat. A pointer though; if you do any work to the bike and had touched the exhaust pipes, clean them thoroughly before running because you will end up with fingerprints on the pipes that will be extremely difficult if not impossible to remove. Safe riding.

Irgin.netmy trophy will not go past 7000 rpm i have checked the valve clearances and balanced the carbs and the airbox is clean any clues mark

G'day Mark'
I had a look at the parts fisch for your bike-heres the link

It sounds like maybe it's choking for air.(restricted inlet)
Be sure that the piping to the airbox is not pinched(part no 13) & is not obstructed.
Also make sure that nothing is blocking covering the opening of these pipes.
I notice that the air box seems also to be the filter(bit of a crappy idea-I hope I'm wrong).
But if thats the case, I'd strongly suggest you replace it if its not been done recently.
You may also be able to get an idea of what is going on by removing your sparkplugs & see how they are burning.
Used plugs tell a story.
If there black & sooty it would suggest a rich mixture.(caused by blocked air filter?).
If they are bleached white in the porcilin part then maybe an air leak at the inlet tract(in front of carbs)could be the cause.
The GPZ 750-900R Kawasakis(which this motor is based on) had a tendancy to pop-off or open circuit the sparkplug caps All the time.(giving a weak spark) So you could check these.
Another thing- A blocked exhaust restricts maximum RPM but this is un-likely.
(Unless you are in Australia- A wasp called a mud wasp LOVE to block the ends & inside of exhausts-especially small exhaust outlets-GRRRR- no joke- On 4 motors just this week).

I'm not sure what else to suggest-
Check these things, & if you have no joy let me know & I'll try suggest what to do next.

I hope this has been somewhat helpfull
Kind regards Andrew Porrelli

How do I change the oil on a 96 Triumph Tiger? Where is the oil plug?

If you look at the front wheel, now look about six inches behind that. Theres a hex nut right below the exhaust pipe coming out of the engine. Should be at the lowest point on the engine in the front. You have to remove the skid plate.

2000 legend 900, new t o me. Backfires flame out of the exhaust. It looks like aftermarket pipes. Should I rejet or go back to original exhaust?

well if you like the sound and looks of the aftermarket pipe then rejetting would be the best thing to do to solve the problem and to keep the performance and sound. if you are not wanting to deal with the rejetting then the easiest fix would be to put the stock pipe back on. if you need more help or info just ask.

Well, now that you asked, by removing the baffles it changes the back pressure on the exhaust system. In some cases this causes need for re-jetting the carbs to make it run a bit richer. There are a lot of riders out there that like the louder sound of the baffles either drilled or removed entirely. The exhausts are factory tuned to match the jetting of the carbs.
Keep an eye on the exhaust pipes to see if they start turning blue. If so, it is a sign of the engine starving for fuel and would be a good time to consider re-jetting. Or, if you like the color blue and purple on your exhausts you can leave the jetting alone.
Ride safely, Ed
