Couple of pics of the baffles I have installed in my shotgun pipes. Initial results sound great. They definitely took some of the harshness and crack out of the sound. It will be a bit before i can get it out on the road to really test them out for performance.

Here ya go.

www.bigcitythunder.com/

It is hard to tell in those photos- but welded into the perforated cone tip is a large spherical washer. The whole piece is nicely made. Polished and de-bured, well pack and they shipped faster than lightning.

Bbob- ya got any thoughts on those exhaust gaskets in the other thread?

Bbob would you personally recommend the ones from buy witch doctors ? I check their site out every day, a must have.. But I was looking at them thunder baffles .. Just trying to get opinions on what people are thinking.. I have the Victory stage 1, 2 into 1 pipe.. Was asking about drilling but I'd rather burly then ruin my pipes.. Any help would be appreciated

Getting ready to make up a set of 2 1/4" inserts for those exact baffles for a Cross Country. He loved the sound and performance of those baffles on his shotguns, he asked if I could install them on his Cross Country. When I get them done I will post up a video or sound byte.

Lloyds suggested the ones that you have the link to from witchdoctors, they are rpw baffles, and they were like $40 shipped from lloyds to me. I put them in my vegas and they had a real good sound, I had the swept pipes with the massive banana baffle in them, I removed them and bolted the rpw(lloyds/witchdoctor)baffles in the same location. I had asked Lloyd about the thundermonster baffles and he said for what you get they were way over priced.

Wow- those look like some '"hacks" idea of a baffle compared to what i just got. Look at the burs on that thing! Guess ya gets what ya pays for...

Not sure that matters on an item that doesn't show and will be covered in soot in a matter of miles as long as it is structurally sound.

The expensive baffles are definitely better made though. I just don't know if they are 10 times better made to justify the cost.

No - they weren't cheap. Cost more than they should, considering. Took some of the sting out seeing such nicely made part right out of the box.

Chop of the cone and about 2 inches of the rest, and you get what Lloyd sells. Made the exhaust deeper and took most of the bite out I think they cost me 45 bucks

I bought and installed a pair of Thunder Monster baffles and I will say that they are worth every penny. On my Vegas 8-Ball the idle didn't change all that much but once you rip on the throttle it sounds unbelievable and the torque gain was equally impressive.

Noe,
You said you did the baffle mod for a customer, did you modify stock pipes, gutted stock pipes or ???

I'm trying to achieve something fairly quiet, but still with a deep thump. I liked the after mod clip.

We have done several versions. We start by gutting stock pipes. The Magna-Flow Mod is basically retrofitting a set of their factory fabricated glass packs in to stock muffler housing. Then welding everything back up. The Thunder Monster set up is a bit different....we make a custom length pipe and attach the TMB exactly 12" into pipe for the creation of optimum echo chamber sound. Then weld everything back up. Both sets will bolt right up using stock hardware an heat shields. In both mods you can use your stock tips as well. Both sets have been working very well according to customers, but we do not have access to a dyno so we have no numbers. The Magna-Flow is a little quieter at idle, but both sound and respond fantastic when throttle applied. Of course I always recommend upgrading intake filter and tuner for optimum performance. Hope this helps......and If you need anything....let me know.cheers
