In my e-mails with Jimmy, he said that there is a set of extra quiet baffles that he can supply for around $40-50 if memory serves. I'm seriously looking at either the Kingsnakes or the Daytonas with a set of torqloopz for my bike. Baffles out for when I'm feeling me oats or riding with my HD buddies (Jimmy says it's liable to make the boys pee themselves when I crack the throttle), baffles in for when the Missus is with me. It's just one or two bolts that hold them in as far as I know. The pipes are far less weight than stock too, and the loopz takes the catalytic converter out of the system so even less weight and backpressure = more powa and better throttle response. Might even get better mileage if I can keep the revs down. Beautiful thing is, I can always remove the loopz and re-install the cat if it's too loud or I'm heading into California. Going to hang on to my stock pipes too.

grab all the kicks you can baby, you only make this scene once!

I have had 3 wings and one was purchased with different pipes. I prefer the stock quiet pipes myself. I also have a loud V-twin bike but as another poster stated, the quiet is nice on long rides or multi-day rides. Loud is OK if you are bar hopping with a group but wings usually don't do the local bar hop very well !!!

Ok, so I'm gonna drop the hammer on this but I'm gonna take it one step at a time. I got my tax refund yesterday (woohoo!) so I'm ordering my Kingsnakes today, along with the extra baffles in case the war dept thinks they're too loud. Holding off on the torq loopz for now but still considering them for later. Going to change the passenger footboards at the same time, so that they all match (Kuryakin) since the stock ones look so goofy beside the shiny Kury's.

I finally did call and speak with "Jimmy". Extremely helpful guy. I recommend him just from talking to him.

Now the downside ... they are not his pipes. His measure 3 7/8's inside diameter and these are 3 3/8's inside diameter. Is there anyone with that size pipes that can send me in another direction ? Also from the current baffle to the end of the exhaust there is just a shade over two inches of room. Doesn't seem like enough for another baffle.

He also gave me a web address that doesn't seem to work. Can anyone help ??

I tried it with "www" and without but got nothing.

That's really a shame. My pipes should be here soon; should be fun

I may very well end up getting a system from them. He quoted me a price which is far more than a set of baffles but about half the OEM prices. Since I just bought the bike I'm a bit tapped out for cash but we'll see.

I'm basically looking for stock sound but not stock price. In looking through Honda dealers at OEM prices they are close to $600.00. The ones I have are in good shape but just have a deep, mellow, throaty sound that I'm not real interested in. I want the bike to be super quiet.

Just make sure you get the right pipes, you don't want to have to rejet the carbs for poor performance.
