Would buy them again.
It was somewhat a pain to install with the pipes on, but I managed to do it in 30 minutes.
If someone decides to do this, here are my suggestions:
Remove the forwards bolt/nut from the rear slip on mount and make certain the exhaust clamp for the rear slip on is pushed back out of the way, I had to loosen mine and spin it a bit. This allowed me to remove the chrome shield and baffle from the front slip on without having to pull everything back off. Getting the screw out of and back into the front slip on baffle was the worst part and requires a lot of patience, was only able to get about a 1/2 thread per turn with and allen wrench. The rear was easy to do, plenty of room there. Slid the chrome shield back on the front slip on tightened everything up that I took off or loosened and slid the rear chrome shield on and tighten it up. Cleaned the shields up to make certain I didn't leave any marks on the chrome and fired it up.
Dennis Kirk shipped quickly and they arrived in perfect condition!
A friend of mine with a Road King recommended these baffles, but noted that his did not fit just right. Very tight he said, and would not go all the way in.
Well, when I installed these, I happened to notice that the V&H Big Shots all ready have a steel baffle installed. Once this steel baffle was removed, the quiet baffles fit very snuggly, but great. Be sure to put some clear packing tape around the front of the baffle, the middle and rear to secure the packing a little better. It goes in a lot easier, and does not bunch-up so bad! The extra tape will burn away within about a mile of riding.
Any suggestions on how not to embarass my friend when I tell him he needs to remove the steel baffle first, and then put in the Quiet Baffle?
