Default swept pipe baffles, options

I contacted lloyds about my bike, mentioned the exhaust and that I have noticed the swept pipes are not real power builders. He says that he sells some baffles for them that will help. Anyone running them? what other baffles are there for these? thanks

Yes I ran them. The made the sound more bottomy. Power wise no clue to tell the truth. I loved the sound. For more power 2 into 1 like rpw thor would be better

I put the big city thunder baffles in mine earlier this year. Sounds better, i didnt notice a power difference from the but dyno, but it should have helped some.

Thanks NJ8BALL, good to know. What did they look like? Were they perforated tubes, or did they look similar to the ones from the swept pipes. I don't plan to change the pipes, I like the look, he said the baffles would help performance and lean it out some, since now I am running pretty rich.

And Lloyd said the thundermonsters were overpriced, these ones were like $30 or so, not the $130 or whatever the TMs are. Thanks for the replies, I have an email in to them to see how much and if they have any.

They are about 5 inches long, cone shaped perforated steel.
