XT600 Tenere (1985) Silencer & Downpipe advise

Whislt repairing a small hole on the downpipes of my 1985 (55W) Tenere, I have now found another hole in the silencer and think it's time to change both.
I am now thinking of getting a complete Stainless Steel system.
Both Motad and Devil make stainless steel downpipes however Motad are a lot cheaper but I believe the Devil are a larger bore and so give better performance. Any advice?

Also, both Laser and Arrow make Stainless silencers (Arrow list from 1986 models on but I think it may be a bracket that needs modifying). Again any advise would be great.

Thanks
Gary

hi foggie ive just bought motad down pipes the fit was good and so far all seems well. i got them from ( busters ) in swansea, in there cataloge thay are 100-110 pounds i think . i put xt600 stainless downpipes in to goggle and a MCN add had them at 75 pounds to my door from busters a bit odd when motad themselves sell them for 110 i think. i bought them about 10 weeks ago so mybe the offer is still on . zigzag

My 600E came with an Arrow silencer, which is pretty good - stainless, reasonable size and a good sound. It doesn't have the rearmost frame mounting, though, which I believe the OEM silencers had, to stiffen up the rear of the frame. Perhaps only an issue if you are considering heavy loads and rough usage.

Hi, I have a CRD Stainless header pipe and Arrow silencer fitted to my 1988 3Aj Tenere (will fit your model). These look good, fit perfect and sound lively but not too loud.

Brian,

I haven't heard of CRD before. Where did you get that from?

Also, I read elsewhere on this forum that the TT600 had stainless downpipes that also fit. Anyone know what year to look for.
Cheers
Gary

I've seen these headers in the flesh and they look really good - next time I see zigzag I'm bringing my tool kit and having them when he isn't looking
