  • Quieter baffle

    I ride late night and don’t want to wake my wife and daughter coming home from work. I pulled the baffle from my 2 into one pipe and the 4” of packing was burned out. Figured now is a good time to rebuild the baffle and possibly add supertrapp discs. Here is pics of original baffle and new changes to increase the perforated to just over 12”

    You got me thinking.

    I run a V&H pro-pipe (2->1) with the Harley end cap on it. The difference between it and the original metric end cap (which I no longer have, dad gummit) is that the metric one (no chrome) has baffle input end blocked, and the Harley one does not. I have to repack the damn thing every year, and it's still louder than hell. Wish I still had the old metric cap for comparison.

    Anyway - maybe if I get an itch I'll do something similar to what your doing - I'd really like to knock it down a notch. In the mean time - I've been using earplugs, they work well and really drop wind noise too when I run w/o a windshield. With the windshield on, windnoise isn't a problem, but the exhaust is loud, and I ain't getting any younger...

      What do you pack yours with? This time I’m going to try a different material. One layer of wood stove rope seal then a layer of fiberglass mat. I’ll post more pics as I build the rest of the baffle and end

          I just use a heavy fiberglass mat they sell for packing sportbike mufflers.
