they came with a single pipe.
other then finding a set of RXL pipes the only twins are after market.
the 500 is the same bore and stroke as the 340, even the same piston. just one more. there pipes are not cheap either.

welding a single pipe wont make it a twin. ;)

Blue, I've looked into this pretty heavily.

The TXL used a mono jug, the Centurion used 3 individuals. Yes you can drop the centurion jugs on the TXL bottom end but you have a water pump issue as the 340 is cooled across the cylinders. Also, the centurion has more aggressive porting.

your right, it is only the pistons, bore and stroke that are the same, not the cylinders. I did not mean to imply that.

K, I just didn't want anyone thinking that they're completely identical. Close and can be done, but not just slapped on.
