Uh, what?

It's a seam not a razor blade. :rolleyes:

Did you even look at the video? If you're worried about the dangers of a muffler on a motorcycle you are in the wrong dang hobby.
Yes, I watched the video carefully.

I take notice you consider the seam craftsmanship harmless. Please respect that some people (even m/c riders) think otherwise. The Norton factory may have thought likewise.
It's antisocial to mock about opinions you disagree with.

For that seam to be dangerous to a pedestrian they would surely have already had their legs broken by the footrests and probably toes crushed by the tyres...

I've seen biker gang types adorning their rides with handlebar, hub & peg spurs/skewers, Ben-Hur Chariot style. Nicely chromed parts made to chew up all biological assemblages. Gues sthe chrome is easiest for washing off the clotted blood and sinew.

It's perfectly acceptable to mock silly statements. If you feel that your opinion has merit then you should deploy some logic to back it up. Anyone can throw out an opinion, but no one is required to accept it.

But as you will see there is no more danger from this muffler than any other, aside from it being "not attractive", and offending someone's sensibilities.

I do think you should look again and your perceived danger may be from the muffler bracket not the seam, and the bracket, of course, is inconsequential.

Hi Bodger

I got flamed by AJD on the NOC when I made the same comment about them being the same as Dommie silencers albeit rotated through 90 degrees. Obviously the Manxman one was the original design but it would make sense for Norton to utilise it on later (Dominator) models if it worked. The other upside to this is that there is a much larger (and already existing) manufacturing capacity for Dominator silencers so utilising the same silencer with two mounting options would make remanufacturing a more viable option.
I see AJD just posted a description of the Manxman silencer on the NOC. Since she has the actual silencers, I have to defer to her description. According to her they have seams on both the outer and inner edges and the left silencer has some kind of spacer to clear the brake plate. It seems like making a completely accurate Manxman silencer may not be as simple as turning a standard silencer on its side. On the other hand, except for absolute authenticity types, it seems to me that you could make a reasonable facsimile of the Manxman silencer by turning a standard silencer on its side. After all the inside seam she refers to is barely visible. As for the differences in the interior baffling, I just don't think that's worth worrying about.

Norton Manxman 650 silencers are one-off silencer and only made for the Norton Manxman models and have No design relationship to the dominator silencer tuned on its side some bodger may have done this in the past but Bracebridge Street Aston, Employees where craftsmen That why there are some of these silencers left to 3D scan in the first place they where made for the restrictions Of the California Highway department of the Day and other County boundaries within the USA and they where stylish as well and real suits The Norton Manxman 650s witch kind off make them unique and like me, I just fall in love with oddballs
