Reviews for Vance & Hines Quiet Baffle for Shortshots Staggered and Sideshots Exhaust Systems - 21301
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.I would recommend this item to a friend.
They Give my Sportster a throatier soundI would recommend this item to a friend.
Make sure you buy two if you have to pipes
Yea i didn't read all of it when it said sold in 1 each. So i had to order another and wait. but once installed bike sounds great with the vance & hines shorts. They eliminate most of the engine decel popping compared to standard baffles in the short shots. While they dont quieten that much they do deepen the sound.I would recommend this item to a friend.
Should be called "a little bit quieter baffle". It is an improvement over the straight through baffles that came with the exhaust. It took me about an hour to remove and replace the baffles. The exhaust pipe shields/guards have to be removed to get to the screws that hold the baffles. I used masking tape to hold the fiber material and twisted baffles to install, as suggested by others. They fit perfect. Performance of bike seems the same as before. I am glad I got them.I would recommend this item to a friend.
Could for the price be Quiter.I would recommend this item to a friend.
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.I would recommend this item to a friend.
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...I would recommend this item to a friend.
Quiet Baffles solved the "D-Cell" pops
I purchased a 2009 H.D. Fatbob, the previous owner had installed Vance and Hines "Sideshots". I disliked the amount of noise, or "D-Cell" pop I experienced with every immediate deacceleration, or gear shift. I purchased these "Quiet Baffles" with some skeptisicism, but after installation, the pops disappeared, and the exhaust notes are MUCH better!! Shipping time was minimal. A VERY satisfying experience! ThankYou Dennis Kirk!!I would recommend this item to a friend.
