Other than being loud, would there be any harm in running an XB w/o the muffler for 15 or 20 miles?

Probably run like shit, but I doubt it'll hurt it on a ride as short as 20 miles.

The only hurt will be in your pocketbook when you get the excessive noise ticket.

Might send your AFV into a spin. These bikes need that back pressure.
Did a demo for a drag guy here, had his M-2 dragbike with open header and his fabbed elbow/extension. We put it on the dyno and it made a whopping 74 HP. I Grabbed a Buell race can from another tuber in the shop and just stuck it on the bike pointing in the air like a diesel stack---made 86 HP with no "hole" in the power curve. Had a good laugh at the look on his face!

The bike will fall on it's face when you try to give it gas so don't go pulling out in front of anyone. It will not have any low end torque.
They do sound awesome without a pipe. Better than any big bore Harley I have ever heard.
