A couple of these would look sweet on the Strom. Stolen from another site:

From the OOFISHAL Tailgunner website. . . .

Increased Performance with Proprietary Variable Back Pressure®.

The Old Tradition:

Until now, straight pipes have allowed for an overall decrease in exhaust back pressure. This has provided better top end performance and a big bike sound. But often at the cost of poor low and mid range effectiveness and an earsplitting crack.

The Tailgunner® Solution:

Tailgunner® rotary cannon exhaust uses turbine induced Proprietary Variable Back Pressure. With an increase of back pressure at low rpm’s and reduced back pressure at high rpm's you get an overall increase in performance through the full power range. You also get a deep, resonant, throaty report that doesn't hurt the ear. No more sacrificing low and mid range performance for high end speed and great sound.

Dyno tested and performance proven: Dyno numbers coming soon.

Seen in action here.

Now I just cannot take this seriously... A gatling gun muffler? I can see the looks at the border now! ! ! ! ! :D

I must admit to some curiosity though.

I wonder what kind of bearings it spins on, and how long they'd last You'd think that they would get as hot as turbo bearings and they need massive amounts of cool oil to live.

Hmmmm, maybe this answers my question, but I have my doubts..
Be kinda wierd to have to lube your muffler, Now if they had Chrome Muffler Bearings I'd be all over it!

From the website...
Will the bearings last in the hot, carbon environment?

Tailgunner® models use two, high quality American shielded radial bearings designed to resist heat and corrosion. The have been operating in the field for 2 years without failure. We recommend lubricating the bearings with the hose tip of a synthetic spray every 8-10 hours of operation; the same recommendation as a drive chain.

Note : the bearings are not under a load, they are freewheeling.

I still prefer my stock photon canon from my RR.

Undecided if I love or hate the gattling gun design.

Well, I'll be damned. Muffler bearings!
Well.... there goes a perfectly good joke right up the ol' chimney.... :D

But just think. When you hear someone trying to pull the old muffler bearing joke on someone you can step in with your best Cliff Claven imitation and set them straight! :roflmao

I can't believe I didn't see the muffler bearing bit! :laughing
I can't wait until the next time some fucking gearhead decides to be funny and mention a replacement of my muffler bearings. I'll whip out this webpage and shut 'em down!! :D

Somehow I think these would look more in place on the back of a Civic in Richmond, than on the back of a motorcycle.

Although, a pair of them tucked up under the seat and counter-rotating might look kinda cool.

(Oh, and Kent, thank you for moving this somewhere that we could actually reply to it... :))

So... now there'll be a bunch of running bikes parked outside Starbucks?
Better to be enclosed, cleaning that would take a few days.
