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.
