They clearly have had an issue in assembly and possible a design issue with the hanger not actually clamping the exhaust as per previous generations.
AFAIK Arrow exhaust hangers are exactly the same on all generations of TEX exhausts. It is the OEM can that had a welded hanger tab.

FWIW I checked yesterday and my exhaust tube is out the collector of 2 or 3 cm. As I don't have time (and don't want to solve a situation caused by the dealer), I will wait until the next service to complain to the dealer. Maybe if there are enough complaints, Triumph will do something instead of waiting for disasters to happen...

I'm with XCaTel on this one: we customers shouldn't have to worry about such a design flaw on a €20k bike.

Mine looks out of whack but I think it's been like this since I got the bike, the Arrow can hasn't moved and the rubber bungs look like they're in the right place.

I've re-torqued the screw though just in case.

What do you think?





nuttysweet - Originally I said this looks fine and this is how mine looked after pushing the whole exhaust back in a cm. Now Triumph have replaced my arrow can there is no shoulder showing whatsoever so you might loosen the silencer clamp and front clamp and see if you can slide the Arrow end in right up to the hilt (As per other pics in this thread). I reckon that has been like that from new and hasn't moved though as there is no sign of movement score marks on the silencer.

Thanks XCaTel. I did try and move it but it was stuck fast, I reckon that's why they left it the way they did. I'll pop it in to my dealer on the weekend.

Glad I read this thread.

I had recently changed my OEM exhaust for the Arrow, hadn't done too many miles and all looked OK. Last week took the bike down to the French Alps (1000 miles) and re-checked and it was instantly clear that the Arrow had shifted. Fortunately I had packed the right tools to slacked everything off and correct the situation. Thanks guys.
