Muffler bracket?

Got a "new" Two Brothers exhaust for the Triumph but it didn't have a bracket for the muffler! What do I do?

New muffler vs. old:

Oh yeah, you make one... Had to make one of these on each side:

After much hammering, drilling, cussing and fitting, finally got it on, after about 4 hours. It shouldn't have been so bad, but after doing the first test fit of the brackets one of the bolts I actually did get (the one in the picture above) with the exhaust decided to gall right before the nyloc nut came off. I got to re-drill the brackets, as well as the straps and license plate holder, so I could use bolts I had on-hand to actually fit everything together.

Still need to pull the tank again, it feels like I've got something disconnected (wiring connection or a vacuum hose), but I can (hopefully) get to that this afternoon, and then get the Triumph off-road fuel map uploaded.

Finally finished, just in time to annoy my neighbors with a test ride around midnight:

I'll see if I can get some better pics in the light.

I just put one of those on the El Tigre. Nice sound, light, and I have a good "seat of the pants" boost in HP/Torque.

Good job BTW.


P.S. How do you like that Shinko? ( they work pretty good on gravel )

I been running Shinko tires for years. Love them. 003 super soft on my ninja. I even ride them in the rain with no problems.

I have no real issues with it, but unfortunately I don't get to really push the bike much as most of my riding is commuting. They serve my riding well, and are cheap enough I don't mind if I go through two sets a year.

updated pic

Looking at it from the side, I'm thinking I want to take about 2" out of the muffler so it lines up with the end of the tail a bit more flush. Updated the tune to the Triumph O-R tune (20106), reduced the fan controller temp to 98C, and fixed a vacuum leak. I'm really liking it so far, just wish I'd had the cash to get the Trident exhaust...
