What is the method or How to improve Royal Enfield Thump?


QI have royal enfield electra twinspark uce
2010 model
I removed & changed the bend-pipe.
I have installed the free flow silencer but there is no original thump.




Ans: About 80 % of Enfield buyers do so because they are in love with the sound. However as exhaust emissions get tighter by the day, so do the noise limitations. In order to achieve both and do so comfortably, the modern Enfield has an engine of unit construction (engine & gearbox in one unit).

Right from the design itself, it is supposed to provide more refinement (meaning less noise and vibration). So if the engine itself produces less noise, how can you get the old thump just by changing the silencer ?
