Default Tri-oval pipe owners get in here!

Any Tri-oval pipe owners looking for custom baffles?

I have learned a lot about exhaust while researching the 2 into 1 system I'm building I figure why not put that to use. I will be redesigning my Tri-oval pipe baffle anyway. I've got a welder and access to a full machine shop so I'm going to be designing a few other products later too.

I'm looking at designing a few different baffles all will be Dyno tested to give you an exact graph over stock Tri-oval's.

im expecting costs to be about $200.00 or less.

So if I was to do this what kind of changes would you guys like to see?
Deeper tone
I can offer 2 into 1 conversion also once I get mine finnished and tested.

If I get enough interest I will need someone in the Sacramento area that already has Tri-ovals installed and Dyno tuned when I get ready to test. That person will get a free set of baffles and re Dyno tuned for them.

If you want to send me a set. I'll see how they fare against my stock baffle.

I'm not an asshole...I just type that way

I have Crory Ness big honkers and would like them quieter with a nicer tone when cruising on HWY not the annoying drone I have now

Here's my 2 cents as a Tri-Oval owner.

1. I was at a dealer a couple weeks ago and they had a set of de-baffled Tri-Ovals on an XC and asked if I wanted to hear them. Of course I did. I was not impressed at all. The sound was "dirty", not a good pitch or tone at all.

2. My bike has been dyno tuned. It would have to be done again if I had my pipes re-baffled.

3. If I'm changing the Tri-Ovals, I'm going to Vance & Hines. IMO they are by far the best sounding pipes on a Victory XC.

That being said, I appreciate what you are doing and I'm looking forward to seeing what results you get on the dyno.

Also to answer your question, I want LOUD and deep, with performance.

If i were to do a baffle change I'd be looking for same tone, just a tad bit louder.

On the Victory Facebook page Drew Miller recently posted that he’s working on a new baffle for the Tri Ovals. With Drew involved, I’d expect something very nice is forthcoming for us fans of the Tri Ovals.

All the best,
