All,

I have had the Freedom performance True duals on my bike since I got it back in '14. Recently my wife has started riding with me and the noise from the exhaust keeps the mic's open on or sena headsets. Additionally a few of my buddies that I ride with have mention that my bike is loud as hell when i get on it. Does anyone know if the Vic Tri-ovals are quieter than the FPTD's? I thought about possibly getting the quiet baffles for the FPTD's but Im not sure which way to go. Any suggestions or IDEAS on quieting this beast down?

I kinda doubt the Tri-Ovals or any other OEM style mufflers will fit with the FPTD head pipes. I haven't heard of anyone doing this but mods can be done to make them fit I suppose. Maybe I'm wrong. It has happened once or twice before.

Wrapping the baffles will quiet them down some. Maybe enough to make the difference and it would be the least expensive option.

I failed to mention i still have my stock headers and pipes. I just didn't want to go back to "that" quiet.

Do they fit with the FPTD head pipes? You can modify them with glass packs instead of the stock baffles if they do or you can buy Tri-Ovals. They are definitely cheap right now. I would not count of them staying that way. Once they are sold out the price will start inching up. Polaris must have ordered a butt load of them from Cobra.

The TO's can be modified some too. I've read cutting the baffles down to 3" gives it a nice tone.

I like the sound of my 2" glass packs in stock mufflers better than the sound of the TO's. At some point I'll be going back to those. They have a nice low note but still keep the noise level civil.

I did the mod with the glasspack style muffler insert. I like the tone. Some rumble with out loosing ear drums. My sena even with OEM mufflers would stay "on" all the time. So I have it set up as a PTT. Plus set up that way I can stream music and share.

Damned if I can find any cheap ones BBob - if you do can you sell them to me!

They have to be chrome ones though! :smile

I guess it boils down to whether i want to spend $130 on Freedom Quiet Baffles of $250 on the Triovals/ and which would be the better way to go.

I have a new in the box all chrome Tri Ovals system that includes the Polaris Performance air filter and the calibration card. Though I think shipping them to you would be very expensive.

I don't think shipping would be much more than $40-50 if you do it right ;)

Have you shipped anything overseas lately? Australia might be less than some places but it's still crazy expensive compared to shipping within CONUS.

Crap. Missed the 'overseas' part.

There was a used set for sale about an hour or two ride from where I live for $250. I was really tempted.

Oh don't get me wrong I love the sound of these things, I could just stand for them to be a little quieter. This weekend while i was putting my rear wheel back on and aligning/tensioning the belt I decided that I would see how difficult it would be to pull the baffles out of one side of the true duals...those things are in there!!
