Have you got any more photos or details of that TM pipe Leith? I'm struggling slightly to comprehend which bit is which :o !

This isn't quite finished, but there isn't much left to do.

It isn't an 'off-road' bike any more, so may not be to everyone's taste!

interesting pipe, looks great
 
what is it like when being ridden ? 
does smoke blow up in your face ?     
do you get drops of oil on your left boot / side of bike /  rear tyre ?
does it blow dust up off the ground ?

maybe this type of pipe could have the outlet aimed at the chain to keep it lubed

;D Now there's an idea!

To answer your questions; I've not ridden it much so far in this configuration, as there is still a small amount of work left to do before registering. However, the silencer exit is angled slightly away from the bike and is below the level of the foot rest, so no smoke in the face and I don't expect any unburnt fuel-oil mixture on the left boot or rear tyre. Still, these are aspects I will be watching out for when the bike gets on the road. Whether it blows any dust remains to be seen - if it does, I might be able to use the bike for clearing the footpath outside the house as well ;) .

James
