Globe auto parts is having some collection of silencers. Does anyone have any experience buying from them?

One of our members in Mumbai had bought goldstar type silencer from the same vendor and is pretty satisfied. Buy from them Bindaas!

Hi SKay,

Globe is good! I got my Goldstar from them and have been using it since 8 months so far and it works fine!

Good luck with your choice!

Sameer...

Almost all the bulls from Hyderabad Chapter have fitted Indore silencers. It has a lovely thump at 2500 RPM and above.

Thanks Sajeesh and Sameer. Even I am hearing that goldstar is good for UCE Engine. Will definitely consider when I finalize my decision.
One more question. My Bike is EFI model, do you think any ECU remap or tuning is needed when we change the silencer.

Thanks,
Skay.

Saravana Sir: Performance of the bike is nowhere a criterion to the type of silencer in its relative terms. No effect on Mileage or engine. (Maybe marginal drop in Mileage, as some have observed).

Goldie aka Golden star is a direct fit, and no Mods required. It comes with a Jali, however please ensure that good grade of Glass wool is stuffed into in.
'upjetting' of the carburetor maybe required, but is not relevant to EFI engines. So, no need for ECU remap. I also have a Goldstar for my C500.

By the way, tuning the silencer is an art. Generally, the thump is proportional to the acceleration. My bull doesn't roar even at speeds of 80KMPH, unless I want it to :)

Thanks for the explanation Abdul bhai. I am clear now. 
I missed to check your bike in RM. Please suggest the best place to buy the Goldie (Sans, Globe, etc), or if you can get me a good one in B'lore, I can plan a trip to B'lore.  ;)

Saravana Sir: Have heard positive feedback from both Sans and Globe from many in this forum  and back home as well. (Globe had many takers) Price also the same with both.. You may chose to pick from anyone..

Nevertheless you are always welcome to BLR  :)

Abdul bhai, please don't call me Sir. I'll be comfortable if you call me Skay or Saravana. We all are brothers here, right.  :D :D :D

Okay, I guess I have made my decision almost. hopefully will place my order soon. Thanks for all guidance.

RE: Silencer for new Thunderbird

Finally got my Goldstar silencer from Sans on Friday and fitted yesterday. The sound and beat was very good. Just took a short ride in my locality and felt like riding a different bike (comparing with my original TB sound) ;) .

More review after the next ride. Thanks.
Some pictures attached.

@zahirjaipury, the monster looks cool. From where did you get this silencer? What brand it is?
