I don't know of any place in my area that might carry baffles over-the-counter? Hopefully the ones I have ordered either will work or that I can make them work.

So much for the baffle baffles. I thought I had them tapped in pretty good, I even used a little high temperature JB weld in case they rattled loose. Rode it to work and both were gone😫. Thankfully they were fairly cheap.

Hmmm, I suppose mine didn't blow out due to tapping them in from the front of the baffle with the big end forward and re-installing it,,, 

So How did they sound while they were in there? could you tell when they blew out?

Really never got to hear them other than at idle. Was hoping to get an opinion from a coworker who rides with me quite often and has complained about the loud pipes. Unfortunately I never even thought about putting them in the forward end of the baffles😢

These were baffles inside the regular V&H baffles so when they blew out it was just back to the regular old every day sound. I wear earbuds and listen to music when riding so I really don’t hear the pipes. I didn’t even know the extra baffles had blown out until I did a visual.

Try googling " Motorcycle parts store " with your zip, see what comes up locally, if any. Usually going to be a Harley oriented parts and repair kind of place that will have them..
