    Ok, as many would have read I'm getting my '08 Street Bob delivered this week.  The bike has the V&H Big Radius 2 into 2 pipes on it which I love the look of, but speaking to the guy I bought it from, the pipes don't have the baffles in them.  I've heard these pipes and they are farkin loud, so I'm trying to source somewhere to buy the baffles from.  Anyone purchased any or know where to get them from?

    I've done the usual searches on Google and U.S ebay and the like and surprisingly I can't find squat.

    Howdy all,

    Apologies for posting to an old thread but was wondering if anyone has had any joy with the V&H Quiet baffles for Big Radius pipes? I'm a bit over frightening the crap out of all the dogs in my street every morning. Tried the baffle wrap stuff and it "might" have made a bit of difference but not much. V&H do a quiet baffle that may not have been available back in the early stages of this topic but at $110 each I don't want to go down that path if someone has tried them with no luck.

    Cheers in advance.

    I just put quiet baffles in my Cobra 3" RPT mufflers, which have a much smaller centre diameter.  I was thinking that the added back pressure would improve performance compared to the standard baffles.  Standard baffles are basically drag pipes because there's a massive straight-through hole down the centre.  The V&H baffles are basically the same as the Cobra.

     I installed the small set of these inside of the standard V&H baffle - did actually make a difference - sorry no photos as they are in the pipe and I could not be arsed pulling them off again https://www.mcas.com.au/shop/item/zodiac-baffles-suit-1-34---pair

    I ordered some from Revzilla in the States. $110 plus postage, thought that was ok. Imagine my surprise when the package arrived with only one baffle! Who the fuck buys one baffle for twin pipes!

    To be fair, when I emailed them stating they needed the be clearer on their website, they credited me $20 towards my next purchase. Said baffle now resides in my shed, all lonely without a partner, and I continue to upset the neighbors about 430am every morning!

    2012 Fat Bob with V&H 2-2 big radius. 
    Had the original V&H 2-2 baffles on. Liked the sound but the wife thought it was a bit obnoxious when you wind it up. 

    Tried the Smartpartz Hard Kore Quiet Baffles  add-ons. They are basically just an end cap that reduces the end pipe diameter. Rubbish!, and a waste of tin.

    Tried the various lollipop mods - crap! Messed up the rev range and did’nt do much good for the sound. Maybe OK if you potter around at under 100kph. 

    Bought the expensive V&H quiet baffles. They reduced the harsh upper end high rev rasp and have a nice potatoe at idle. 
    BUT! Increased the torque siginificantly at low revs, to the point where it was annoying because of the change in torque band when the revs stepped up and the throttle graduation was too wide and erratic. 
    And absolutely choked the system at full throttle at the top end. Took off at least 30kph with serious weakening of torque as you approach the now restricted top end. Took them off. 

    Wrapped the original baffles with baffle fabric and put them back. (Super difficult). Result: Good spread of torque; top end is back and sound is good. Well chuffed. 

    That’s the sum of my BR 2-2 experience. Still have them on my FB. You get the style, sound and tuned power spread basically straight out of the box. There aren’t really any worthwhile aftermarket modification possibilities. If you’re looking for a different sound, power, etc, then I’d suggest looking at a totally different system.

    You can tune the exhaust wrapping on the baffles, the more and tighter you wrap it the louder and harsher it will be, less and loose will absorb the noisy top end.. it’s counter intuitive.. more wrap means louder.
