Vance Hines Quiet Baffle For Harley Metric
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.

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.

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.

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.

This product makes your pipes sound a little deeper and throaty
I wanted to make my pipes sound a little more deeper and throaty without that "tint higer pitch" sound so installing them made my pipes sound better to me. Thanks Revezilla for the help and providing these Vance and Hines baffles which gave me just what I was hoping for !!!

Deep "quiet" sound
Perfect if you want to have a deep sound and don't disturb (too much) your neighbours and the police without loosing performance

Got these to take the edge off of the Big Shots. They take the raspiness away and make a more mellow sound at idle. Still sounds good when you get in them. Have to remove heat shields to install. So far so good.
