I thinik this is the site you're talking about. Looks pretty cool.

That is the one I was looking for. I thought there was a link at the LINKS function at the top of the page, but could not find it last night. I also like that they are the same length and not staggered.

I havent taken our mufflers off to know, and I usually ride with bags on. But are the mufflers on our bike actually two different lengths or is it the way they connect to the goat?

If you look at a goats belly, you'll see that the exit flanges on both sides facing the rear of the bike are at different locations, one further back than the other. That's why the mufflers are staggered.

I hate these kinda things.
This is the first time that I have heard of bar end weights.
Is that what those cone shaped pieces are on the end of some Kury grips? I thought they were just chrome bling.
Do I understand correctly that they dampen vibration in the handle bars as well?

Hmmm, does anyone have a Nomad to compare diameters of that muffler with a VN`s?

Nope not referring to the cones. I saw recently they have bar end weights. I don't know what they weigh, I just know the heavier they are the better they are supposed to be with helping reduce vibrations. seen guys use them on sport bikes.

In general, vibration diminishing of streamlined heat-transmitting elements is achieved by (e.g., decreasing the flow velocity) clearing of faults in damaged tubes, rearrangement of tubes to make passages for a coolant, replacement of damaged tubes by bars, mounting of regulating baffles at the coolant inlet in the heat exchanger, and appliances reducing damping and tube stiffness. Bearing in mind that the strongest vibrations are observed in the first rows of tube assemblies, tube clips in midspan, stiffness-girdling rings, and other appliances reducing vibration amplitude can be mounted.
