Buell style exhaust?

I remember seeing someone fabbed up an exhaust that ended right before the rear wheel, similar to the Buell style. How did that end up working out as far as numbers, tuning needed, etc.? And where are the best places to purchase just a muffler to do something similar? I really like the clean look and the weight loss.

Actually, it isn't. There was a pretty well modified one that had the exhaust ending right in front of the tire.

Yes! Very similar to what I want to do, including the lower fairing but with a different can.

i still don't think having it blow on the rear tire is a good idea... it needs to kick to one side.. it would suck to get a droppa oil on the rear in a curve.. then again i could be wrong

This bike pulls it off well and aims it off to the left.

Thats the Drummer exhaust on that there Buell !

Dont know if you would want to put it on a 919 - that thing weighs a ton ! My stock exhaust for my Buell XB9R is now a great door stop, it could be a boat anchor due to its weight ! Looks in the after market, Jardine and D and D make a good pipe for the XBs and it wont be as heavy -

The XB's are beautiful, great sounding machines. I'd love one if I could trust it.

Oh, you can trust them ! My brother has about 30k miles on his XB9S , a mix of trackdays and interstate and touring , with little to no maintence - hes only had an issue with and oil leak ( as all early XB's did, this has been remidied since and newer bike should have no issue ) and he keep breaking belts ( could be the constant barage of burnouts he does ). Ive got about 13k on my XB9R and apart fro mthe oil issue, mines been a solid performer - I really like my Buell and wouldnt hesitate to get another one -

Those Buells are sexy as hell. Great ergonomics too, shame the engines are the stupidest engine ever to be placed in this style motorcycle.

Obsession is a word the lazy use to define the dedicated.
