Vance Hines Quiet Baffle For Sideshots/Shortshots Staggered Exhaust System
These ended up being a must with my short-shots. Cuts down on noise and increase bike power. Bike is still loud but it isn't obnoxious.

Good product, price seems alittle high
I love these baffles but the price seems a little steep after forking out for the rest of the exhaust system. I would give 5 stars all around if Vance & Hines offered a choice of baffles with a new system.

Good sound, Easy install
I have a 2013 Iron 883, bought short shots and quiet baffles around the same time knowing the stock shorties look good but are a bit loud. I have a bunch of families in the neighborhood and just trying to be respectful. I switched out the shorty baffles (which is like looking through a paper towel roll) before installing the pipes because it is easier that way. Sounds great, performance impact from installing the pipes and baffles together was very noticeable. Would reecomend

Installed these puppies before putting on my straight shots. Quiet, they said.. Reduces sound level, they said... I rode it up to work, and everyone thought it was thundering!

Revzilla got these to me in record time. They were super easy to install. And they do tone the Short Shots down just enough to give them a noticeable deeper tone. Due to the added back pressure they provide and after remapping my fuel pak. my 13 Streetbob w/103 feels somewhat more responsive at take off.

I was skeptical at first to buy these but I'm sure glad I did and so is the old lady next door...well worth the money,the bike sounds way better now,these should be the main baffle for these pipes,nice meaty sound to them.Helped with the popping sound from these pipes,still pops but way less..
Put these on with the pipes on,I put more Scotch tape at the front of the baffle so the tape was on the fiberglass and the metal so the fiberglass would not slide,then twist it back and forth slowly while pushing it in..
Another great product from revzilla and fast shipment,thank you revzilla

I have the short shots on my 2013 Honda phantom. The stock baffles were too loud and made me feel embarrassed when starting the bike up in my neighborhood. I'm too old to play outlaw biker, if you catch my drift. The quiet baffles make the sound of the pipes deeper and sound more refined. You do not need to remove the pipes to install, but it would probably be easier. I just removed the heat shields with the pipes on the bike. I do recommend these baffles and I think anyone who doesn't want to sound like an obnoxious knob while riding their bike will appreciate them. Here is a hint: when installing them use a small Allen wrench to help you line up the screw holes. Took me 1 hour and 20 min to do both pipes but that is because I left the pipes on the bike. I am nowhere near mechanically inclined, and I could do it, so I'm sure you guys who are good with a wrench can do it in less time.

Just installed these on my short shots, they did muffle and quiet down a bit my exhaust pipes. I guess I'll have to live with the high decibels. Hopefully I won't get pinched by the cops since I live in the socialist state of California.
