Quill T3

Post by The Sarge » Wed Sep 28, 2016 5:23 pm

Having finally rebuilt my 644 engine and fitted a re-profiled Kent Cam, the last thing to do was replace the noisy CCM stock end can with something quiet enough for using on green lanes. After a fair bit of research and enquiring on various webbenars, I took the plunge and bought and fitted a Quill T3. It was £200 delivered for the oval alloy version, complete with all the fixings and adaptor, it is a quality bit of kit and very well made, BUT .......................................

IT'S AS LOUD AS THE STOCK CAN !!! :pinch: :pinch: :pinch:

I have no option but to keep it, and now fear being 'Billy no mates' in Devon next week, I will have to be tail end Charlie or risk deafening anyone that's directly behind me! :whistle:

The cam is the one from the donor XF650 head but re-profiled by Kent, the heads on 644 and XF are identical anyway, After checking and measuring for wear, I re-cut the valves, lapped them and replaced the stem seals, guides were fine. It started after 3 spins on the starter but I haven't ridden it yet as there are other things to sort out, but should be out on the weekend. Will let you know whether the Cam change was worth the £90 , the £200 for the Quill certainly wasn't :pinch:

re-fit the stock can, for the rideout, and
SEND IT BACK
or take it back, even better.
as it is not fit for purpose .. and may even be illegal.
(sale of goods act n all that)

ps ... daft thought perhaps, but are all the gaskets back in?

No way was my Quill T3 as quiet as the standard CCM end can although it was not massively louder. It did get checked once during scrutineering at a UK Rally (Hafren I think) but was passed as ok with the Quill on.

Look at this on eBay http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/121974716052

Tried over the years to make aftermarket cans quieter and the above as worked the best.
Fits in the link pipe end of the end can. Got one in my TTR and had one in my 660 Ten. Makes a huge difference. End can needs to be 51mm internal diameter.
Suzuki DL650 (Wee) with many nice mods ..

Yamaha XT660Z Tenere also modded ..
