Well Ebay made a liar out of me. Guess I WILL be switching these out for stock, or at least attempt to depending on how close they end up being to my Viking Bags. I like the stock look that was linked and am a sucker for stock/OEM bikes, at least appearance-wise. I'll let you know how it works out with fresh pics once completed. Got both left and right exhaust cans in excellent condition for $60 which included shipping. Hard to beat that even if they end up not working.

Well if that does not work out you could always look for the TORs exhaust from the T'bird LT or Commander. They were a lot shorter and go straight back like the pipes you have on there now. They are only slightly louder than stock but are free flowing so will be less restrictive.

So these are LT pipes on a Commander. Anyone ever try Commander pipes on an LT? I have an LT and I'm interested in trying this swap. It looks like the commander pipes may have a removable baffles and I'd like to tune the sound a bit.

thx

Stock Commander pipes look identical to the TORs for the LT and Commander. Doubt they have removable baffles as why would Triumph list the TORs for it as well being a performance upgrade. I could be wrong but never heard anyone doing this when I had my T'bird.

The earlier models had slash-cuts that require major surgery to alter. But the '14 and later are straight cut and have what appears to be socket-head screws holding the baffles in.

I unscrewed mine when I had them. Just for show. Another fixed plate right behind the outside one. Think it's just so you don't see the dirty rusty parts that hold the end pipe in place.
