Worth the change...
I first looked into getting a pair of quiet baffles after reading an article about back pressure and some power gains in the low-mid rev range. There is not much to do in the case of short shots, but gladly the engineering of the quiet baffles from V&H can add a little bit of that back pressure with the cap on one end of the baffles. It changes the flow dynamics of the exhaust and also quiet it down a tone.

It would be a lot easier to install them with the pipes off the bike. I however, installed them with the pipes on. Started by removing the shields and the allen screw locking the standard baffles in place.

The hardest part for me was trying to fit the quiet baffles in with all the glass fiber stuff. Even after adding another layer of scotch tape it did not help. So I removed the tape I added and removed the excess of glass fiber from both ends, not too much tho.

Inserted them by twisting it around until I could not move them anymore and I still had a good portion standing out of the pipes so I used a small screw driver to help me push the fibers into the gap between the pipe and the baffle. After that the hardest part was aligning the holes for the locking screw. After some good 30 minutes I was able to put them both in place and lock it down. Installed the heat shields back on and it was ready to roll.

Short shots will be short shots, they are still loud. However, the tone down is evident, there is a deeper sound to it and not too much of the standard snap sound. I love the way it sounds in idle. Like another reviewer said, I can creep out of my neighborhood without waking up their babies and chihuahuas. It also doesn't irritate my wife as much either, although she said she preferred when it was loud so people would know I was there when riding down the roads.

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.

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.

These should come stock
Omg makes the pipes sound so much better! No more ringing in my ears no more droning noise on the highway. It really does take it down a notch noise wise but it still sounds awesome. That low growl and rumble when idling is nice.

If you got the short shots you definitely want these. Makes the pipes sound awesome and you wont get those obnoxious looks or complaints from neighbors...

I didnt need to retune it but wanted to see if there were little changes. So i plugged in my master tune 2 from tts and showed no difference then stock baffles.

Buy it and put it on. Installation was easy. They come fully wrapped so they slid right in took about 1 minute each to put in and tighten down. The longest part was putting on the heat shields again..

Great Sound
My 2013 Super Glide sounds great with these baffles installed in my V&H Straightshots HS slip-ons. The high pitched ringing is gone and is replaced with a deep, low rumble. These should be the stock baffle, IMO.

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.

This is not a negative review, just helping others avoid my mistake. Read the fine print in the description of all products you buy! Don't let the V&H photo that shows a pair trick you. I will update the review once I order/receive the second quite baffle and install it.

PS: Shipping was very fast! How do they do it?

product was a direct fit, as described, shipped quickly
pipes were beautiful but way to loud, these baffles fit perfectly and quieted it down to an acceptable level.

They do what they say
Before anything else, if you haven't already installed your exhaust and are considering getting the quiet baffles, let me suggest buying the baffles and installing them before you mount your exhaust. The installation is much easier that way. Also, as others have said, order two of them.

These baffles, while expensive, do exactly what they say they'll do. The bike is plenty loud for the rider, but isn't offensive at all for neighbors or other vehicles on the road. I have them installed on a set of V&H Short Shots Staggered pipes.

How loud is it? I'm probably a poor judge as my hearing isn't the greatest, but the volume doesn't bother me at all while riding. It has a nice low burble at idle or cruising speeds and roars when you open it up. My wife said it makes her ears ring after an hour or so, but I don't experience that myself.

Standing in the yard while my wife pulls away, I can't hear her much after getting 3-4 houses down the road. I also can't hear her at all while driving behind her in my car. Take that however you want. It's definitely not a "loud pipes save lives" sort of volume at normal riding speeds, but it's plenty loud when you open it up.

Big improvement over stock Vance and Hine baffles.
When I purchased my 2013 Super Glide used it came with Straight Shot slip on pipes. It was loud and had a lot of popping and gurgling when you let off the throttle.After installing the quiet baffles it sounds much deeper with little or no pop or gurgle on deceleration. Don't let the name fool you, when you get on the throttle it sounds like a Harley should.
