Title: Help B44 victor enduro silencer & Exhuast
Post by: Carsonbcfc on 03 October, 2020, 16:11:01
Hi all.

Iíve a b44 victor enduro 1967. It came with a silencer with the heat guard. The bracket that held it to the frame had 2 bolts which as you can see the frame has only one lug.

I ordered a peanut silencer from armours but as you can see from the pictures It fouls on the inside Of the Mudguard and sticks out at a weird angle.

Can anybody advise part numbers or suppliers of silencer and exhaust pipe that would workS

Cheers Paul

I have a TR25w, Fitted a peanut silencer similar to the one available on Feked website with offset connection.Had to make a short stainless extension to the pipe.

Hello! This probably isn't a lot of help to you, but on my Victor Special I fitted a new peanut silencer ordered from Armours & had to gently tweek the mounting bracket in the vice so it lay flat on the frame mount. I've got non standard alloy mudguards fitted, so clearance wasn't a problem for me - & thats with the exhaust pipe tight against the inside of the frame....It doesn't look too weird as its gotta clear the rear shock.

have you tried fitting with the bracket  on the inside of the lug ? may not help the guard but may look closer

Ah Armours
I had a silencer for my b40 from them. Was way out on dimensions and did email them to tell them but got no answer.
I have previously had silencers and pipes from Wassell in Burntwood but also had problems with fit.
I went to the factory and they said they would tweak things which they did but when I saw the jigs things were made on you can understand why nothing fitted!
