2011 road Glide Custom 96 C.I.D. With V & H Power Duels and matching Fishtail Slip-ons.
Originally I had the stock HD mufflers on my scooter and really enjoyed the low vibration level and quiet exhaust,quiet enough to listen to my radio with ease. I replaced the mufflers for the Fishtail look. The stock V & H baffles were way to loud and caused way to much vibration so I installed the V & H quiet Baffles. I must say that I love them...They are a shade louder then the HD's but they have a lower pitched growl that is cool! I also noticed with the increased back pressure that my 6th gear throttle response had dropped down to 40 MPH.....I can actually ride in 6th gear at 40 and roll the throttle and accelerate with ease!
Summation QUIET, SMOOTH, 5 STARS:
Installation is a breeze! When you receive the baffles you will notice that there is about 1/2 to 1/3 to much fiberglass rolled around the baffles, which is good you have extra, unravel the fiber cut off the excess and re-tape. When re-taping make sure you tape in the direction of the wrap and that you fully tape both ends around baffle to prevent peeling when installing. After completed put the baffle back in the bag and put them in your freezer!!!!!!! Leave them in for at least 1-2 hrs. While you are waiting remove the old baffles,exhaust tips, or what ever you need to remove to install the new ones. Once done fire that scooter up and get that pipe nice and hot!!! Shut her down, put the frozen baffle in the exhaust pipe....Those baffles will be slicker than a peeled onion...they will plop right in!!! Put high temp lock tight on the mount screw and Bingo...DONE!!! Those baffles are basically made of the same material as your exhaust so they have the same coefficient of expansion!!! Freeze one! Heat the other! you will have ample clearance for an easy slide in fit!!!
Enjoy the quiet rumble and role-on...... Oh yeah Dennis Kirk? Great Service..............

Installation was not hard but it was a bit challenging to insert. It took me a couple hours to do the whole thing but it was worth it. Definitively recommend these baffles.
