Vance Hines Sideshots/Shortshots Staggered Quiet Baffle
Good deep sound
Made the V&H Short Shots tolerable. The stock baffles where overly loud and had an annoying snap. These gave my little 883 a good deep note, and eliminated the snap and drone while at speed. Still lets everyone around you know you are there.

A must-have addition to Shortshots
While these baffles don't make a huge difference in the volume of the pipes, they do reduce the volume to a "neighborly" level. Also, they make a great change to the tone of the exhaust note. Bottom line the pipes sound much better with these baffles than with the stock baffles. Also, add my name to the list of those who think these baffles help performance wise as well by adding some much needed back pressure to these short pipes. Also, make sure you buy 2.

Don't worry, Short-Shots are still PLENTY loud! =)
My application is a Honda Shadow VT750C2B (phantom) with Ceramic black short-shots. These should be considered for default baffles. Sound is greatly improved, as is back pressure\idle. (the latter is unscientific, but the bike backfirefarts significantly less now) If you can turn a wrench and own a screwdriver, Installation is a snap.

Perfect reduction in noise level.
These are a great option if you are looking for a little less out of your Vance and Hines pipes. They took my short shots from a ridiculously loud volume to something that was a perfect tone/volume for me. The pipes are still loud but not over-the-top obnoxious and I get to keep my hearing.

take it down a notch
I have short shots on a 2011 nightster. I didn't notice a big decrease in volume, but a nice downtick in harshness. the tone at idle is much deeper and throatier too. I didn't notice a decrease in performance either. pretty easy to install once you get the heat shields off.

Not so quiet baffles
Easy to install, It´s not as quiet as I expected but it gives a more pleasant sound, I still have to use ear plugs.

This baffle is definitely quieter without any noticeable difference in performance. My neighbors will definigtely appreciate it.
