Yep. Absolutely I expected some potential fitment issues. What I didn't expect was to receive random bolts and exhaust springs three weeks after receiving my order, or a jacked up mounting scheme for the cans, or to be sitting waiting for them to finish the design that was supposed to be done in November. Meanwhile, I get more info about this system on this forum than the people I bought it from.

I ran it without rapid bike for 2 days because I had loom issues, the bike ran perfectly no flat spots , but was risking it being lean with the std ECU. But this supports the design flow of the system. I havent run it on the dyno so cant put numbers up. I would be able to compare it to other bikes i have had on the same dyno.
FWIW, inconel is stronger (especially when hot) but is much higher density so typically the wall thicknesses are dropped down to be very thin to make the weight make sense. Inconel systems can crack too (just ask Austin Racing). At the end of the day, exhaust system failure comes down to engineering design and craftsmanship.

That Storm system is looking better and better as I keep walking by my torn down bike in my basement. Thanks for posting the pics.

Yeah, I originally was going to go Redline, then compared theirs to Storm, and went Storm even though they were a bit more expensive . A few things swayed me even though the Redline looked more "SL".
Storm didnt ask for any money upfront .
The headers were equal length
They had documented R&D in BSB
They had dyno curves, numbers are just numbers, but at least there was development work done on a dyno.
Inconel, thought that was a selling point ?
Phil was a really genuine guy, and kept me updated even when the postage was late . He still is in contact moaning about the shitty English winter !
Thanks from Phl and Sherpa23
