Hi all
I'm considering putting Cocktail Shaker silencers on my 2009 EFi Speedy. The silencers are very reasonably priced. Can anyone tell me what I need to consider when changing these over? Note that I'm only changing the silencers and not the downpipes.

Thanks

Shouldn't have to do anything if all the proper mounts come with or line up for your bike.
The ECU will adapt if there is better exhaust breathing.

I think you will need to get the ECU remapped, I put cocktail shakers on my 2011 speedmaster and they popped and banger like made when down shifting.. Triumph dealer can do the remap for about £70.00 but just be aware, they are bloody loud!
Hope this helps mate,
Ride safe

Yes, I have cocktail shakers on my 2010 America and the motorcycle definitely benefited by being remapped. I have a Triumph Twin Power map on my motorcycle now which is excellent, but I also got good results uploading a free map using TuneECU before I purchased from TTP. It does takes a special OBD-2 cable to connect a computer to the ECU of the bike, but TuneECU is a free download and it is pretty easy to use.

There is a lot of helpful information available on various ones of the other Triumph sites about TuneECU.

I fitted a pair of cocktail mufflers to Roy (2011 America). Bloody loud in original condition! Popped and banged like a drug addict. Stuffed 5 stainless steel pot scourers in each and ended up with an acceptable volume, decent enough note and still a slight boost in performance. No remapping, though.
