Great product at a great price
I bought these baffles 2 weeks ago and put them in my Vance and Hines Short Shots Staggered in black last weekend. I had heard that the baffles would give you the increase in torque that was lost when installing the pipes w/out the quiet baffles. I can definitely say that it has done that. I feel much more throttle response and torque at the low end with these installed.

The sound it gives is a nice low pitch rumble that the pipes themselves seemed to not have. Just the perfect sound for these pipes.

Installation was easy. It took about 10 minutes per pipe. Two 1/2 inch nuts to pull the pipes, pull off the heat shield, and loosen one nut to remove the "stock" baffles. Put the new ones in and reverse those steps. Quick, easy, and definitely worth my money!

Worth the extra $$
I bought these with the idea that I could return them if they didn't do anything. We tried the shortshots without and with and can say I prefer it with them. The pipes are still loud but have a deeper tone to them. We also were able to keep some of the torque that would have been lost without them. Hint: if you order remember to order TWO. I missed that they are sold each not as a pair, so I had to rush ship a second one to have it for the weekend when I planned the install. My bad.

Wished I had bought these before installing pipes
Bought the Vance and Hines Short Shots and they were way too loud (I know: is there such a thing). Being right by my side they were extremely loud. The baffles only quieted them slightly and have a great deep rumble now. The only problem was I had to remove the pipes and heat shields to get to the bolts to remove the old baffles (if you can call them that) and install the new ones. It would have been much easier to purchase these with the pipes. Love em though and now my bike sounds like a bike!

Better sound
These really mellowed out the tone of the shortshots. When you fire it up they dont seem any quieter but then you hear the pitch drop down a little. When you really notice it is when you are riding. The decel pop is really tamed and the edgy obnoxious sound is gone. That is what I like about these. The pipes are basically just as loud as before but a more tolerable sound now. As far as installation. Piece of cake. Once the heatshields were off it took about 5 minutes.

A Good Buy
I installed these soon after putting the V & H Short Shots on. The standard baffles that came with them were just too load. The quiet baffles have a nice low rumble to them, but can still bark pretty load when you get on it. I didn't have any trouble putting them in, and didn't have to remove the pipes to do it. I just loosened all the hose clamps on the heat shields, and removed the two top ones closest to the heads. Slid them back to access the set screws for the baffles, removed the old ones and replaced them with the new ones. If you straighten out the end of the hose clamps that were removed you can easily slide them right back on. The job took me an hour and half tops...

Quiet Baffle
Quiet baffles was an easy fit. Removed one screw from each old baffle , pulled old baffle out with needle nose pliers . Slide new baffles in , installed screws. Started my bike up , still had the throaty Harley sound , but quiet enough to where my neighbors will not complain of the noise. Toke 30 min. to install.

Vance & Hines Quiet Baffles
Checked the part number with Vance & Hines and they said that these baffles were not meant to fit my Straightshots exhaust system. Dennis Kirk had a detailed listing of this product that included both external and internal measurements of the part itself and fitment for various exhaust systems. Based on the details listed by Dennis Kirk, I determined that these baffles would indeed fit my Vance & Hines system . . . . . and they did, PERFECTLY. So much for the people at Vance & Hines knowing their own products. Thank You Dennis Kirk.

Cheap and somewhat easy to install
These baffles are fairly helpful. while they dont quieten that much they do deepen the sound and help eliminate most of the engine decel popping compared to standard baffles in the short shots.

Quiet Baffles
The baffles arrived quickly and well packaged - the description was fairly accurate. I wanted to quiet down my Vance & Hines pipes and while they are quieter than what I had, it is not by much. They are quiet when idiling, but when accelerating they are still fairly loud. I wish there was some way with your web-site when purchasing items like this, that you could hear what they sound like before purchasing. This may not be easy to do but it would sure help. I will buy from you again !!

Will the engine be silant?
Theway on Aug 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The quiet baffles for the Vance & Hines short shots wil only reduce the exhaust noise by a couple of decibels. You will still get the exhaust rumble but just a tat bit lower. Short answer is no it will not silence the exhaust noise.
Will these fit my 2006 883R short shots?
Postman101 on Mar 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes but they will ruin the great quality of sound and power you get out of the shortshots , I have a pair of sideshots and tried these on my pipes and made my bike sound like a Honda 250 dirt bike and took a lot of my power away along with so much back pressure that when trying to shut down the bike it would want to keep running and actually made the motor run backwards before finally turning off ! The best thing That i found to do if you like the power and sound of the pipes to begin with then take out your baffles that came with the pipes and give them a wrap or two in the only part of your baffle that will allow you to put any wrap on them and still fit in pipes then if you can get them back in the pipes they will be just enough of a sound to tone them down enough and still have your power and good sound without the loss of all else and no back pressure or your bike wanting to keep running
Will these fit my short shots on my 2006 883R?
A shopper on Mar 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You should be good to go with these! Pretty sure all the short shots pan out to the same diameter at the end of the pipes so the quiet baffles should fit in any short shot, regardless of bike. Don't know if you have put the shorties on your bike yet but I would highly recommend waiting to put them on after you get the quiet baffles in, if you haven't slapped em on yet. You'll need to have to pipes off to install the baffles
Will these fit my 2006 873R short shots?
Postman101 on Mar 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, they should ez to
Install quiet the bike but it still has that low tone sound. Actually, helped with the acceleration performance. Good products, great store to order from no complaints
Will the V&H quite baffles that fit shortshots fit straightshots ?
Randy C on Sep 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes. By straightshots you must mean sideshots. I installed these baffles in my V&H sideshots and they fit perfectly. Don't hesitate buying them, they make a very noticeable difference.!
Will these fit screaming eagle II muffler's?
A shopper on Aug 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I called the manufacturer and had a talk with one of the guys there and he gave me the info I was seeking for my application. I suggest you call the manufacturer and ask your question...I think I found their contact data by doing a Google search on their company name, which I now forget..I don't have screaming eagle pipes. I have V&H Shortshots. FWIW I see no difference in noise after installation in mine.
