Default Baffles?

I will be installing a set of Big City Thunder Monster baffles this weekend. If I mount the baffles the 6" from the end of the pipe per the instructions I will have to drill a new hole. What is everyone doing to seal the old hole in the exhaust? The only good idea I've come up with so far is a little exhaust tape with a new hose clamp over it to keep the tape in place. It isn't a perfect solution so any better ideas?

Just stick a bolt and nut in the hole and don't make it so complicated. Your sound will not change

Let me know what you think after the install. I am close to pulling the trigger on the same baffles (currently running SlashNess with baffles out and/or cut down - depends on the weekend).

I had Big City Thunder baffles in my Hammer. I took them out when I sold it and installed them in my CC. The difference is night and day in the midrange. Bottom end is slightly better and top end is no different, but midrange is very noticeable. It gives a deeper, throatier tone as well. That's over the cheese grater baffles I had in the Swept pipes. You are guaranteed happiness.

I installed the Big City Thunder baffles in my Jackpot. I don't notice any different sound vs. the cheese grater cone baffles that were at the end of the pipes. I have not driven it for more than a test-ride after the install but so far...the sound is about the same. I put them as far up the pipe as possible and they are definitely at least 6" from the exit end of the pipe per the instructions. Will repost after putting some miles on them and see what it sounds like and what the power feels like. Not totally disappointed, but not thrilled either.

I also installed the big city thunder baffles in my slashness pipes. The were a just little quieter but I did notice a stronger pull in the low to mid range. I installed mine real deep in the pipe, 1 inch from where the rear larger curved section starts as recommended in the instructions I got with mine. This places the baffle roughly 12 inches from the end. I wanted less noise and opted to install the stock baffles also. So my pipes have 2 sets of baffles in each pipe and for me, the sound is just right. The bike still runs great.

I got the new baffles installed last week, but I have been having issues with my PCV so I haven't had alot of time to test them. I can tell from the short rides I have been on that they are loud! I have them install just under 6" into the pipe with the bullseye pointed towards the rear of the bike. The sound is definately different with more of a snarl. I'm going to try and flip them around with the bullseye towards the front of the bike to see what it does. I'm not sure I like the sound the way it is now, and I am hoping flipping them around will take a little bit of the edge off them.
