QD ex box underbike exhaust

Attached are some photos of QD's protoype "Ex-box" underbike exhaust.
We have been using the Ducati Monster Ex Boxes with great success. We were interested in your thoughts for the Buell.

I like it!

Is the finished product going to be painted or polished?

Any sound clips?

The standard product is a brushed finish, but we have been ceramic coating them in matte black here in the USA on the monsters.





In Italy, they are experimenting with a different ceramic process similar to what they use on cooking surfaces. We coated our Ducati 1098 project bike in their gloss black ceramic finish.

If it works out well, this will be an option from the factory.






I don't have any sound clips yet of the Buell yet--but the Monsters sound like P51 fighter planes...
I'll post the sound clips when I get them.

Here is a picture of the more traditional single pipe set up:

That single pipe setup looks nice, but similar to the Jardine or HMF setup. I still like the style and uniqueness of the ex box design. I really hope you guys go through with the ex box.

I had a meeting with Martin from Motowheels tonight, as a result of that there will be more attention paid to the Buell 1125 from this point on. I've agreed to assist in the upgrade research, I have already come up with a laundry list that need attention. I'll be presenting the list next week and we will also survey it for upgrade compatibility. I really like the bike and learned fairly quickly theres not much out there in terms of upgrades for our them. That is why the ball got rolling quickly in this case. You can find anything you want when it comes to the Ducati, the only thing stopping you is money.

I'm optimistic we will come up with some very nice products, items you will want for your bike. Some of the areas we are discussing: handlebar control upgrades, cf, wheels, exhausts and misc items to be announced. I'm cautiously hopeful about the light weight wheels, the singlemost best upgrade you can make for your bike.

Nickg, I'll find out more on this next week and post up. We have already talked about contacting a couple of excellent pipe people, we will see what they have to say.
