I've been seeing these uber insane looking custom streetfighter bikes from europe (you know, the ones that probably don't see the street cause they have a 280 rear tire and a 180 front :eek: ) and alot have these little torpedo exhaust tips.

I want to know, a) where can you get them b) do they ave voodoo muffling magic, or are they damn near unmuffled pipes, and c) umm...no c.

here's an exhaust I found for a Buell, it looks like there's no actual muffler, I wonder how loud this would be:



can anyone think of a way to make a cool lookin exhaust, but still keep noise down? now, noise down within reason, I'm not talkin no sound, but I wouldn't want it obnoxious, fine line to walk :(

thanks guys.

EDIT: did a search for supertrapp, hadn't actually looked them up in the past, knew the name and the way their mufflers looked, but never looked into them since I didn't really understand how they worked. Found these: http://www.supertrapp.com/product_sections/cat.asp?CatID=28 looks almost the exact same as the euro pipes, not quite, but would give the look, and probably keep the noise down to respectible levels.

Why yes ... yes I can.

Here is what we did. Modified a Leo Vince can, bent lots of tube so that the lengths were exactly the same as the Leo full system and ended up with the freshest looking pipe to come down the pike. Strong opinions on all sides ... but it is in your face ... which is very Streetfighter-ish.

Sound is not any louder than the Full Leo Vince Street system. Power is the same.

Where did you buy that fairing. I like it a lot, but can't seem to find anywhere to buy it. I found Ghezzi/Brian's website, but they seem like Roush Racing is to Ford for Moto Guzzi. Didn't see anywhere to actually buy just pieces.

Zorstec make baffled megaphone cans like the one you see on that Buell... Still pretty damn loud though. Remus do baffled pipework- you basically get an oversized midpipe that has stainless honeycomb baffles in it.
