Had the Project out yesterday for a run on Bosch plugs (colder plugs as I thought to eliminate pre ignition from the list of causes) it did run well and I stopped three times to try hot starting, started every time, I am beginning to get a bit windy about the volume of the Goldie silencers though, glorious it is but loud.
Now I reckon it would be toned down a bit if siamesed (wishful thinking?) and I wonder if it would twitter if Siamesed more or better than with twin pipes
All the best - Bill

Bill, you know the old saying. "If it's too loud your too old". At least if the tintops can't see you they will hear you.
Cheers

I have a plain sausage shaped silencer on my  old Matchy out of stainless steel that twitters on the over run, go figure. I keep back off just to listen to it.

cheers Terry

Mines a mockery of a sham. It's mostly 1949 with '39 girders which are a straight swap!
