Does any body know where to get custom straight pipes made for a 06 bonnie?

Remove the silencers and cut the header off just before the last bend.

Did that. And re-jetted the carbs with a 120. Sounds great but the loss of the back presure is also a loss in power. Is it possible to get the power back?

Where is it losing power? It's possible to get it back through some carb tuning and better re-jetting for sure. I'd start looking at the plugs after making some passes to see where it's rich or lean.

Depending on what you've got going on the intake side, I'm betting 120 mains are going to be way lean anywhere above about 1/4 throttle.

My 865 Scrambler w/ K&N pods and D&D slip-ons, 150 mains, 1 shim on needle and 42 pilots was dead on 13 to 14:1 A/F ratio.

Are you running pods or airbox?

140s, 42s, and 2-3 turns on the air screw is a good base line with pods.
128s, 42s, and 2-3 turns blah blah blaf if you're still running an air box.

Gonna have to run a small baffle if you want it to run right across the entire RPM range.

looks like you still have the airbox in your default pic...

Not sure what aesthetic you are looking for but I love the SS Bubs on my bonne. Always thought it would be cool to rebuild them into a high pipe.

Yeah I still have that damn stock air box on there. Thats the next project. I found some small baffles, but was told there for a sporty. Im trying to get the load triumph sound and maintain a even amount of power as I run threw the gears.( I cant have my buddies 09 dark custom sporty beat in a drag) Im the only guy in my crew rocking a triumph.

any baffle that fits in the pipe is fine. like i said 128 mains, 42 pilots, and 2 turns on the air screws usually does the trick.

if you click the link below, you can see an exhaust mod i did to a thruxton. sounded damn near stock at idle, and sounded like an old one everywhere else. ran like a fucking champ across the entire rpm range.

but you cut your headers already didn't you?
