Search for Dan Holmes' DRS Royal Enfield, also known as the Bonneville Bullet. Here is one picture of it.

Does anybody know where can i get a Goldie in Bangalore. I searched in JC Road and got a Chennai Goldie, which is OK but not that good as compared to Punjab made Goldie.

Try getting the Pune Goldstar. You have various options about the baffles / glasswool inside. Its expensive but worth.

Muneer in Shivajinagar makes decent goldies. Pricey though.

Cheers,

There is a variant on Hitchcock Motorcycles.



Excerpt from their website:

If you are looking for engine performance then this English made reverse cone silencer is the answer. It has an alloy reversed cone, which if removed gains even more power and lots more noise. For use on 1.75" pipes. Recommended only for off road use!

Note: NOT suitable fro Redditch built 350cc Bullets.

PART No. DESCRIPTION PRICE
91009 SILENCER, REVERSE CONE MEGA (ALLOY END) - 62.00
12882 SILENCER CLIP 1.7/8'' - 6.00
That price is excluding the shipping charges. Add that and you'll forget about it.

The number of bikes running megaphone silencers is very very less. I've heard one on a 600cc Bullet (a 500cc converted into a 600cc | yes Anthony Ollukaran). That silencer was locally made. Sounds just like the Goldstar, but even louder.

Default Shakeel's new Goldie spotted

Shakeel is now making a goldie with glass wool in it. The glass wool can be added or removed easily to alter the thump characteristics. For this, Shakeel has fabricated a removable endpipe in all his new goldies. Tried a TBTS fitted with one of his latest Goldies and it sounds heavenly. The problem of popping which was a major issue in most bulls with the older goldie have been reduced greatly by the addition of glass wool.

Cheers,

Jay

When you back off the acceleration, you'll hear popping sound (more like gurgling). Its very unpleasant, and at times it can get so loud as if shots are being fired at you

A little richer mixture setting or a larger main jet solves the problem.

Yes, I've seen the new Goldstar. It also has two screws at the end so that you can open and add/remove glasswool according to your need.

Bigger main jet won't solve the popping. As you rightly have said, a richer idle mix with a larger pilot can solve the popping issue.
