Hi Charlie,

Thanks for your advice. However, I’m particularly trying to find a genuine Burgess – which has the name on the side, as fitted originally.

Actually, being an absorpion type silencer, they are not really suitable for a Scott two-stroke long-term, as the packing eventually gums up with the oil, causing them to go loud (although there is a way around it) but I suppose that was what was available to Matt back in nineteen-hundred-and-fast-asleep.

There are retro silencers about, including Armours, but the quality is not as good as the original Burgess.

So I’ll keep looking – but thanks just the same for your post.
