vance and hines competition series
« on: August 13, 2015, 12:36:50 pm »
I'm confused about the 'quiet baffle' for the Vance & hines competition exhaust.
This is the exhaust.

I bought my bike recently, second handed, through a local dealer and he couldn't give a straight answer, because he doesn't know these after market parts.
Anyway, how does this part, namely 'the quiet baffle' looks like excactly, because looking the internet I find this...

and I have the impression I see this part already inside the muffler?
This is my best pic trying to photograph this..

 I don't have this exhaust but it looks like you have  it already installed in your picture to me as well, someone who owns this already will comment soon I'm sure.

I agree that by looking at the picture, it does look like the one installed.  Were you just looking for someone to confirm this?

I bought my V&H Comp slip on brand new an it looks like the picture. This is the standard baffle.

i contacted V&H some months ago about the "quiet baffle" they told me that the slip-on is coming with the baffle installed directly.
