Default Stage 1 swept xbow exhaust question

I just bought my 2011 kingpin and it has this exhaust on it. I love the appearance of it versus the stock exhaust and I kind of like the rumble of it. I'm used to a more quiet exhaust on my Honda I had, but thought I'd like this new sound. After riding today about a 100 miles, it kinda got annoying toward the end of the ride. The bike come with the stock exhaust in case I want to switch back, but as I said, I like the looks of the swept pipe.

The previous owner put the pipes on himself and didn't do that tuning thing so it kind of pops and back fires a little on deceleration. Has anyone ever put baffles in these pipes to just quiet them a little bit? Or do most people that put these on do it for the louder sound?

My husband has the 2009 kingpin tour with stock exhaust which is really quiet, I think. However, I had read that with the 2011 the engine sound is not as noticeable as it is in the earlier years and the there is more sound to the stock exhaust. I know the engine sound difference is true because his is more noisy, mine is quiet. Not sure about the dif in the stock exhaust. Not sure what I want to do at this point about exhaust issue. Any suggestions?

Nobody?? Can someone recommend what baffles anyone has either used or heard someone else may have used to tone these Swept pipes down? Since these pipes have that curve I would imagine only certain 2 1/8 inch diameter baffles would even go in them

If they are the stock ones pull them out and wrap with fiberglass packing. This should help but all the other baffles will be louder. Many people change the baffles for more noise/less restriction. Pull yours out and see what you have. I have stock ones I will send you for free if yours are not the factory ones.

Probably a dumb question, but how will we know if they are stock? Is there something printed on them?

Does it still have any baffles in ?

I just pulled mine over the weekend to get more sound, they aren't wrapped anymore, but I still have em and the mount bolts.

If you want them, cover shipping and they're yours.

First try at a pic, so bear with me.

Only reason it looks so clean was the big stack of clothes I moved to take the pic

Hubby yanked them out and they sure don't look like the stock ones in Mcan1x picture. Can there be baffles put in pipes that make them louder than a stock baffle??

How'd you get that pic up here? Did you use Drop box? I have that, but can't figure out how to post a pic of the baffles hubby took out. They aren't like yours. Maybe that's why they're louder??

I tried to use my drop box link and it didn't work, uploaded it as an attachment..

My guess is you have an aftermarket set in, mine are stock, when they were in and wrapped, there just wasn't any note at all.

Not a good thing in a sea of old drivers and texting teens.
