Greetings everyone. I'm the newest member to the Tribe. Just picked up a '19 Vintage. I'm thrilled to finally be at that stage in life where I can afford a nice bike. However, with kids in school yet, I still have to restrain myself from blowing several more thousand on Stage III mods, etc. Which brings me to my question. Coming off of a carbed bike with Cobra double barrel straight shots, they have saved my life more than once by getting the attention of oblivious drivers who can't seem to see motorcycles. I feel that having the option to make a lot of noise is a wise safety investment. I ordered V&H slip-ons, and while they sound great at idle, they lack the throttle bark to get people's attention. Removing the packing around the baffles helped, but at the sacrifice of low-mid range torque. It seems to be allowing the cylinders to scavenge too efficiently at low rpm's to be able to build enough compression. So here's where I need to pick the brains of anyone who has more information/experience than I. In theory, if the baffle was wrapped with a non-porous material as opposed to fiberglass, or better yet, lined with steel piping, (2 1/4" automotive pipe fits perfectly in there) this would/should accomplish both goals by reflecting more of the sound waves and also not allowing the exhaust to expand and drop pressure. Thoughts, suggestions?
