EXCELLENT PRODUCT Installed the V&H quiet baffles in my Big Long Shots and they sound much better than the stock baffles , much deeper tone , now I don't feel like I had my head stuck in the speakers at a rock concert . Highly recommend these if you like a lower tone and bring the low-end torque back . November 16, 2015
More torque and better sound After running Short Shot staggereds for a few months with stock baffles, I installed the quiet baffles. The eliminated the tinny sound and added a deeper bark. I notice a slight gain in low end torque and I'm very happy with the purchase and product. I down sized the amount of glass provided by about 50% October 20, 2015
quiet baffles i easy to install. gives you that perfect harley sound. October 13, 2015
Perfect! The pipes should be sold with these in them. It's the perfect sound and it increased the mid range and low-end of the bike. They are a must. October 6, 2015
Accomplished what I purchase them for Bought these baffles to help cut down on the edginess of the exhaust at lower speeds. Wearing a full face helmet, the tone coming out of the exhaust at around 35 mph was ear splitting. These definitely helped deepen the sound. It does quiet down the exhaust overall a little bit but in no way ruins the sound. Another reason for buying these was to give the exhaust some back pressure and help eliminate decel popping. While its not completely gone it helped out a lot. Installation was pretty simple. No need to remove pipes to install. Just loosen hose clamps and bend out of way then slide heat shields off. Stock baffles were a little tricky getting out but I managed. I wrapped some extra scotch tape around the fiberglass to help keep the fiberglass from bunching up. I started the baffles 180 degrees off from the set screw hole in the pipe and twisted while installing. Also remember that they do not come as a pair when ordering. Must purchase two separately. September 25, 2015
Did just what I needed. These baffles were easy to install, and did just what I was hopping. Has my bike sounding very nice, and has helped with the overall performance. I highly recommend these. September 7, 2015
Serves purpose I bought these for my Straight Shot slip-ons because they were LOUD... Although I loved the way they sounded I needed to tone it down for the neighbors. These baffles will tone down your pipes to a deep Harley sound and will take the growl away that everyone seems to be annoyed with. You will get a loud, deeper sound. You will still be heard if you're splitting lanes like I do. And your ears will thank you. Easy to install but not sold as a pair so that part sucks. August 31, 2015
keep the white fiberglass wrap! Easy install Keep that white fiberglass wrap. It looks like packing with a bit of packing tape on it, but it is part of the product. Don't remove it. This was easy to install and I think it gives the bike a nice deep Harley sound without being super loud. Revzilla shipped quickly too. :) Fit my new V&H Staightshot mufflers perfectly. Just remove the Straightshot baffle and slip this one in with only one screw. Super easy. August 15, 2015

A shopper asked: Hi

I have a sportster 48 with a screamin eagle heavy breather , vance and hines short shots and it has the stage 1 download, if i install the quiet baffles do i need to re tune the bike ?
Jul 7, 2015
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Ryan B: I have the same modifications, but on a Dyna. I installed the pipes with baffles in, before the high flow breather and finally the download. You might want to contact your dealer to verify the need for a retune if you're adding the baffles last. Jul 7, 2015

A shopper asked: I bought a Kawasaki Mean Streak with Vance and Hines pipes with no baffles and I want to add quite baffles to it but I don't know what model of V and H I have? The inside diameter of my pipes is 2 inches, will these baffles work for me?? Feb 27, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
chuck s h: it is hard to answer the baffle question. you need to read the specs on the baffle and it should say fits 13/4 inch or 2 inch pipes, most vance and Hines i have looked at are 13/4 inch inside diameter. are you shure you are measuring the inside of the pipe and not including the heat shield? (and that is not a stupid question)

Eddie B: I have put quiet baffles on my 2013 Harley Davidson Iron 883. The Vance and Hines shortstacks are not as loud and have a deeper note which has alleviated the problem of sore ears. But still loud enough for ignoramous car drivers to hear me. Feb 27, 2014

A shopper asked: Will this fit my Vance and Hine Short Shot made for my 2009 Honda Shadow Spirit 750? Jun 20, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Thomas F: Yes it will, the manufactures part number is the same as the quiet baffles called out on the Vance and Hines site for a 2013 Honda Shadow Phantom 750. Since the shadows are all basically the same, it should fit your short shots as well.

Nick R: I called Vance and Hines about the big shot and short shot quiet baffles. The gentleman told me that the big shot baffles are 2" OD x 10.5", and the short shot baffles are 1 7/8" OD x 10". Although, when looking at a picture of the two side by side, the short shot looks a bit shorter than 10". I'm going to order the short shot quiet baffles and build an exhaust around them, using my stock 99 Honda shadow vt750cd exhaust to modify. I hopes this helps. I would still double check with Vance and Hines. Jul 21, 2014
