Default Way to friggin loud

I just installed a set of baffles I got from Lloyds. They are small cone shaped with a bunch of holes. The sound is deeper, which I love. But, I seem to setting of alarms all of the place, and not even on hard throttle.

I have the swept pipes on my 09 KP 8ball. Can anyone recommend a quiter baffle.

I had a thought of maybe adding the end cap to my old baffles. They have a smaller hole with a piece of metal splitting down the middle, and about 1/2in of metal blocking the rest of the open to the pipe itself. I know they would add back pressure. I just need something i bit quieter.

You can try tack welding a washer on the end or inside of your baffle and put it back in. Try running it.If it is just right remove it and weld it on better. If it is a little to loud break off the washer and go with a washer that has a smaller hole or you could go the other way to make it louder. I made some baffles a few years back for some mufflers I had debaffled that were way to loud. They worked fine until I found some other mufflers I liked better.Just a cheap guys idea to say a few bucks.

Did some research, looks like the new bike came with the cap I mentioned before. I think the name was hard kore quiet baffle.
Why would a new bike with 19 miles come with them.leads me to think some one bought else bought it and didn't like it, and returned the bike.

Makes me wonder.

Thunder city QQ baffles are very good, tested for correct gas flow but quieter than normal "loud" baffles.

I have VIC Swept pipes and cut them down then installed a washer, deep but not too loud or restrictive.

I doubt the bike was returned because of an exhaust, are you sure the stage 1 kit was not a free dealer add on?

Ayup, black swept "performance" filter vented airbox and remap. I checked the filter its white with a steel mesh. I cleaned it and oiled with K&N oil. The mesh and element had some rust on them too.

I removed the stock donkey dong baffles, replaced with some cones from Lloyds, then replaced those with the Hard Kore quite baffles that were on the bike originally with the donkey dongs.

I reset the Lloyds IAV its about 4 turns out and popping is less. Unless I blip throttle. Going to dealer on Saturday. And the if I keep the bike, at this point I think I would rather give it back and get a Triumph. But if I stick with it, Ill get the Lloyds VFC and have it tuned my Lloyd.

I have a too loud baffle also. Did you cut the baffle in half to weld in the washer?

Nope I just reinstalled the stock donkey dong baffles back in the swept pipes and didnt install the quiet baffles.
My sound is deep grumble with no high pitch crap. I can deal with it
