Vance Hines Quiet Baffle For Big Shots/Straightshots/Softail Duals Exhaust System 4.8 5 16 16
Very cool! Read all reviews and alleged pitfalls of installation. It took me 20 minutes to install. Leave the tape on the wrap and use a popsicle stick to gently push any excess wrap in to the pipe end. Love the new low guttural tone of my bike. The treble metallic highs are gone. Someone should recommend this as an additional consideration at the time of purchase of the Straight Shot pipes. The sound is now music to my ears instead of an assault. November 24, 2014
Not drastically quieter. Keeps great sound Maintains great sound. 30 minute removal of the stock baffles (due to heatshields), but 10 minutes getting them in. No real effort or difficulties on the install October 27, 2014
Sweet sounding '09 Classic Did exactly what i wanted them to do. Took that hard edge off the sound of the pipes. A little longer to install than 15 minutes due to having to remove heat shields, but slid right in with a a shot off WD40 in each pipe and a slight twisting motion. Highly recommend and thanks to Revzilla for the great service. September 29, 2014
Great Upgrade to the Stock Baffles Quiets the pipes down enough to keep from setting off car alarms, but still loud enough to sound really good. Results in a deeper tone and helps eliminate some of the backfiring/popping inherent with these type of pipes. A pain to install once the pipes are on so buy them when you buy the pipes and swap them out before you have the pipes mounted. September 15, 2014
Worth every cent Baffles It took only 2 minutes to install on my Harley Deluxe V&H long shot pipes. Wrapped the fibreglass sheet around the baffle and set into place with a few small strips of sticky tape. Now my pipes have a rich deep sound once I removed the stock baffles for these. Took next to no time to get them here to me in Australia. I would deal with this company for any future needs. If you seriously want a great sounding bike, these are the baffles for you.

Great purchase Ordered these baffles for my V&H Bigshots and couldn't be more pleased. My pipes had no baffles and were obnoxiously loud, but these baffles took the edge off. My pipes are still loud but very acceptable. These baffles gave me just what I was looking for. June 23, 2014
Did the trick Like a lot of other people i found the straight shots to be to loud for me. The quiet baffle does a good job of taking the harshness out of the exhaust tone and quieting the exhaust just enough. The install took me 10 minutes and was very easy,i will add that i have some mechanical ability. May 26, 2014
Better sound now This summer, I bought a used Honda VTX 1800C which had Big Shots installed. No baffles. The bike was LOUD, much too loud for my neighborhood when heading to work at 7AM. These baffles have 1> halved the volume at idle and low revs, 2> matured the exhaust note, and 3> seem to have had no affect on acceleration. VERY difficult to install, or maybe it's only middlin' difficult, but the frustration factor is elevated, because it should be a really easy job but ain't. What worked for me was to wrap the whole baffle and fiber sheet in cellophane tape, then soak it down with WD-40. My exhaust stunk and smoked, but a quick freeway ride blew it all out and all's well that ends well. October 28, 2013

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Osborn R: Wanted to bring down the volume a little. I work very early in the morning and felt bad for waking up in the neighbors every time i started the bike up. Sep 19, 2014
DAVID H: Quiet those true dual big shots down just a tad. Always riding tail gunner. Sep 7, 2014
Brian H: I was a lil upset tht you need 2 and they only sent me 1. They should've been clear on that!!! Jul 7, 2014
mark b: I need to quiet the exhaust on a custom 2000 Night Train that I just bought. Revzilla has the best price, but more importantly has the lowest overall cost becuase of the free shipping. Thanks! Jul 7, 2014
Stephen K: I've read that the baffles only quieten your V&H pipes a little but give them a deeper richer tone..and that's what I'm after. Jun 30, 2014
JOHN D: i received a traffic ticket today on li, ny for 'altered exhaust'. standard vance and hines straightshots with standard louvered baffles. cop said they're altered. they are not altered. they're sold that way. maybe, with the quiet baffles, the noise level will drop good enough so as to not get another ticket. it may not pay to plead 'not guilty' due to the funds it will cost to do so as opposed to the fine with all the other unjust imposed fees there will be. Jun 27, 2014
Brian G: I wanted a little less raspiness out of the straight shots that I put on softail slim. Jun 3, 2014
shaun w: because I wanted to knock the edge off my pipes. May 23, 2014
ahmed h: i didnt want an extreme loud sound this one makes it deeper and better Mar 10, 2014
Joshua M: Relatively inexpensive, provides good muffling of loud pipes. Mar 7, 2014
michael s: retain a little hearing for grandkids Nov 27, 2013
Dean W: Both baffles in my exhaust pipes needed replacement. The material that is used to help baffle the sound was deteriorated. It was quite loud, as well. Decided to purchase the quiet baffles because of these reasons. Sep 29, 2013
A shopper asked: Will these fit my 2009 Vance & Hines Short Shots? And I can't figure out if 1 Qty includes two baffles like on the picture or only one.

David K: Probably not. The V&H website says these fit "Big Shots Staggered & Big Shots Longs with Power Chamber, and Python Staggered Duals" and lists a different baffle (#21649) for "SideShots and Staggered ShortShots".
Price is each, so you need to order 2.

A shopper asked: Will these fit V&H straight shot slip ons? Nov 18, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
David K: Probably -- the fitment says Big Shots, Straightshots & Softtail Duals.
My stock Big Shot baffles are 2" OD x 13" long; the QBs are the same diameter but (If I remember correctly) slightly shorter. Why don't you call V&H cust service & ask them (or make sure Revzilla will take them back if they don't fit)?
The QBs are a little mellower (not as harsh) but not much quieter than stock.

Terry B: yes, they are an exact fit. my bike was too loud even with the supplied baffles in, so i ordered the quiet baffles. they were too quiet, so I drilled out all the holes a few sizes bigger for a compromize. am happy with the sound and power. were a bit restrictive before drilling them out.

A shopper asked: Does this baffle fit the stock 2013 Slim pipes without modification? Mar 8, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
David K: Don't know for sure. I have Big Shots; just looking at online photos the Slims APPEAR to be the same diameter in the muffler area. V&H and Revzilla should publish actual baffle dimensions...
Stock Big Shot baffles are 2" OD x ~13" long; IIRC the QBs are the same OD (obviously) but a couple of inches shorter.
If your Slim baffles are 2" OD the QBs should work. Check Revzilla's return policy in case.
BTW the QBs are not much quieter than stock baffles. They sound better (deeper, mellower) but still quite loud.

Charlie V: Not sure. I know they fit the standard straight shots and short shots. The baffles should have their outer diameter listed under specifications. I'd compare that with the specs on the slim pipes you're asking about. If it's not listed, I'd contact Revzilla customer service and ask. Apr 5, 2014

A shopper asked: What are the exact measurements of this baffle? I need to know diameter and length. Not sure why that isn't already in the "fitment details." And, do you have replacement screws available? Thanks! Jan 2, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Randy M: I don't have an answer to your specific question but do know they posed a snug fit when installed in my straight shots. There are 2 things they should suggest for easier installation, however.
First, clean inside pipes with a stiff bottle brush to remove any residue in pipes. Secondly, the fiberglass insulation is too loosely bound to the baffle itself. I used very, very thin gauge crafting wire to wind around insulation and specifically at the end that enters pipe initially.
Not sure on second question. (I think I remember that new screws that fit were 10mm?)
Hope this helps.
