Good work. They look excellent.
Just fired it up, sounds good but not sure how the mod effected the sound since I didn't try it without the mods.
Well don't keep us in suspense. Shoot a short vid and let us hear it.
Upload it to youtube. Then post the link. Like in my sig.
Are you sure you used 7/8" id washer, cuz i used 3/4" id washer and the hole on my baffles looks bigger as compared to the pic shown, The sound with stock baffles was too annoying , now a bit better but still loud LoL, not recommended for longer trips
Yes they say 3/4 on the shelf but if you measure them i got 7/8'' i.d. I've taken a few longer rides, not on the highway and its not to loud at all. 1 guy on youtube welded a solid piece instead of a washer and it was to quiet. You could try a smaller i.d washer or wrap the baffle with fiberglass now that you have restricted some of the airflow with the mod. When i was checking on youtube for mods for the V&H pipes someone said the fiberglass wrap would not help much if the exhaust flows straight through. But now you sending some exhaust around the outside of the baffle this might work. I would try that before pulling the baffle apart again. Let us know what if anything helps this. Also can you a post a couple of pics of the mod you did. Thanks
Thanks But I think the fiberglass option is out of question because even with bare baffle it is a snug fit so it wont accommodate any sort of layer . It would have been much better if you posted a video of the sound you are getting out of your pipe but trust me I am not too old that I can't bear the sound I get with 7/8" but its very painful after you hit around 60-80 miles/hr speed. Lets see but I am not satisfied with the sound after spending all that money and effort for current pipes, its the looks that caught me.

I dont want to setup an account on youtube just to post a video. i'm trying to go through google to post the video. Now you said when looking through your baffle after mods that your i.d hole looks larger, if its a 3/4'' i.d washer the outside diameter should be about the size of the baffle o.d of the baffle.
Did you measure the i.d of the washer before mod? Even if its a 1/4'' larger the sound will be a lot louder. If you like the looks of the pipes but not the sound you could cover the washer hole up with a bolt, washers, lock washer and nut. Should not have needed to remove any of the washer material to make the baffle fit if it was a 3/4''. Was the i.d of washer the size of the end of baffle or the middle?

If you go to youtube and put in vance and hines twin slash baffle mods you might find the guy that welded a solid piece between the baffle. He has a before and after sound of this mod.
Youtube, then put in Vance and Hines baffle mod. Then look for Drew M video.
