DEAR DIRT DOCTOR: The TLR 200 has a left-hand exit silencer as standard, other TL’s including the RS models had a right hand silencer position .. worth remembering if you spot something online that you think is correct but note that some custom made items are also produced for these machines that exit on the right.
The original steel exhaust on the TLR models are heavy items that many owners want to do away with. Also, if the machine is in a used and abused condition the silencer is the part that often carries the most war wounds from contact with parts of the section!
Options that spring to mind are WES who makes a complete system for the 200 and 250 TLR’s that is completely aluminium and therefore much lighter in weight than the original and is also reported to give better throttle response. Others include the lovely looking TWK system (pictured here) from Japan, but not sure on supply to the UK, and also there is the DEP product which has the mid-box and silencer in one piece.
One to look out for is the aluminium system made by Delkavic which I have to say is about the best looking of the aftermarket systems that is widely available.
John Cane at Trail and Trials UK or Dave Renham at In-Motion are good places to look for information on exhaust options for improving the TLR’s and for TLR parts.
