Selecting an exhaust system for your bike can be quite a daunting task. First of all you need to decide if you are in search of power, sound, style, all three, or a combination of the three. Then you need to decide if you want a full system or just a set of mufflers. If you are a bagger owner looking for a set of mufflers that produce good sound, add some horsepower and torque, and will get your bike noticed while cruising down the highway or parked at the local bike night, then Tailgunner Exhaust might have what you are looking for. With mufflers like the B-52 Jet-Pipes, Torpedos, and Gunships, Tailgunner Exhaust has strived to create muffler systems that stand apart from the “average” exhaust and appeal to those who appreciate unique styling, while achieving a deep rumble and added power.
Recently, Tailgunner came out with a new muffler, the Super Slash Cut Gunships. Similar to the company’s flagship Gunships and Slash Cut Gunships, these new pipes feature a fully rotating barrel assembly that spins like a Gatling gun as it shoots out exhaust. As the name infers both the Super Slash Cut and the Slash Cut feature an angled cut at the end of the muffler body, the difference between the two is that the Super Slash Cut has a 6-inch long barrel assembly compared to the 4-inch barrel on the Slash Cut. Aesthetically, the added length helps draw more attention to the uniqueness of these mufflers, while from a power point of view, according to the company’s owner Charlie Giordano, the added length and the design of the barrel assembly have made the Super Slash Cut the company’s best power producing mufflers. While we didn’t have a chance to dyno the mufflers for this install, we do know from previous tests using Tailgunner’s other mufflers (B-52 Jet-Pipes, Mach II, and Gunships) in Vol.40 No.5 that all three did increase horsepower and torque.
