    Good luck with the welding  :012: I've welded some cr@p in my time but no matter what I did I just couldn't get this grade of "stainless" to pool / bead and neither brazing nor silver solder would wet out before anyone asks :084:

    I guess no-one ever manufactured replacement headers for the Trophy ? I cant find any, other than used parts on ebay.

    Have a look at "Lextek", they did a set for the Gen1 Explorers, which is the same Triumph part number as the Trophy, perhaps not surprisingly.  :038:

    thanks, I dont need any immediately although some nice stainless ones would be better than what is on there now :)

    I don't think they have the cat in place?  Although in the UK would that matter as the MOT check doesn't include an emissions test?  If not an issue this could be an option in future.

    No cat, just had a look at them, but not an issue for MOT, I have another bike with a full system, no cat and it flies through MOT each year.

    It would need a remap though, need to find someone who can map that ECU or possibly use a piggy back unit.

    I can't see the header unit only on Lexteks site, just a complete system at 670 odd?  You would probably be as well just forking out another 100 for the genuine Triumph part.

    This is the part, only listed for Explorer but its the same part according to Triumph microfiche

    333 vs 760 for OE part

    Looks like real shiny stainless steel, compared with OE part :)
