  • Exhaust question

    I have a friend of mine doing some carb work for me and we are currently waiting on parts. He informed me that he has noticed one of my pipes has a baffle while the other one does not. Can anyone tell me what kind of exhaust I have? and if running one baffle is harmful to my ride? My first thought was to remove the other baffle, but its already loud and I dont want to make it louder. any help would be appreciated, thanks.

    Those look like Vance & Hines Longshots, but if they were, you would see the V&H logo near the rear of the pipes. I wouldn't worry so much about the make of the pipes. Just get the diameter and go on Ebay and find some for it. In the interim, I don't think it'll hurt to run one baffle. Also, if you post the diameter, someone on here may have one laying around they could send you. Also, you should update your user profile to include your bike information. It makes it easier for others to help you. Good luck.

      There should be some info on the back side of the pipes.

        Thanks for the replies, I did edit my profile but I dont have alot of the info asked. I got this bike a couple years ago off craigslist, its been almost 20 years since my last bike.

          Definitely not V&H. They don't have the shape that the longshots do. Best bet is to just measure your pipes diameter and then Google baffles in that size. You'll find what you need.

            I think Hard Khrome had pipes like that. I've also seen Bubs that looked similar.
            Pretty sure they both went out of business so you'll just need to search for baffles by inside diameter of the pipes.

              The may be Cobra's also... but the "Cobra" name would show on the top pipe just under the saddlebag...
              My new Star came with Cobra 2-1/2 short shots... and when I rode the bike it sounded like I was firing on one cylinder because all I could hear was the short pipe.
              They came with no baffles and they were obnoxiously loud! So, I swapped them out for stock pipes with a stage 2 mod...
              this is the stage 1 mod... (drill out the back baffle plate only)

                It's difficult to tell from that photo; it would help if you could post a better one. But they look like Hard Krome Big Straights.

                Either way, both pipes should have a baffle. Best thing to do is remove the baffle you have and measure the inner diameter. It wouldn't hurt to post a photo of the baffle either. If it's Hard Krome, I may have one I can send you but I need to see what you have.

                  There's info on the backside, if you'd look.
