Thanks or the info Draper. Not sure that I understand about removing the internals but I guess instructions come with the baffles. My pipes have been on for a couple of months. Was getting ready to go back to the Stage 1 pipes I have but I think I will try the baffles. One last question; with the baffles installed are the pipes louder than stock ? Don't really like the sound of stock pipes. Thanks again
Yes, there are instructions with the baffles, and they are pretty straight forward.
The baffles will reduce the sound output from the stock V&H levels but will be somewhat louder than the stock Victory pipes, kind of in between?
Basically there is the outer portion of the pipe and there is a perforated inner pipe that is wrapped in what appears to be fiberglass matt (fairly typical). The two come together at the chromed outer ring at the back which is held in place with, I think, two bolts at the bottom.
Just remove the bolts and slide the inner pipe out, with the fiberglass packing a couple of inches. Put the baffle into the rear of the inner pipe and secure with a through bolt. Push the inner pipe back in and re secure. It was getting the inner pipe to come out that I had a hell of a time with.
I love the sound now, I thought the stock was just kind of wimpy sounding and the looks did nothing for me. The sound now, to me, is noticeably more when I'm really getting on it and barely noticeable at cruise throttle settings.
But again, my hearing is not what it used to be, but I really like the sound and I love the looks.
To each his own, blondes, brunettes, red heads, right?
