I like stainless steel wool over the ceramic fibers, easier on lungs, harder on fingers.

I won't make you, but I wouldn't stop you either.

I just bought these slip ons for my 2015 street glide. I LOVE the sound. Its real deep sounding, BUT the bassy drone absolutely hurts my ears and makes them ring for days so i have to do something to stop the drone. Does anyone have any tricks that i could do to these pipes to stop the drone?

What's a "bassy drone"? Is that a remote controlled flying fish?

Honestly, I think trying to modify slip-ons to "tune the sound" is a crazy undertaking.

Can you sell the ones you bought and get something different? Did you not know what these sounded like before you bought them? Have you tried earplugs? Losing your hearing isn't worth a "cool sound". I have a buddy who almost quit riding last year because of a similar issue and he had put stock mufflers back on, then he tried wearing some good quality industrial type earplugs when he rides and he says it has helped a lot. It must have, he's still riding.

Trying to repack a set of Khrome Werks 3" slash cut slip ons, part # 202348 (or 202350).

Looks to be a 1/2 fiberglass mat but underneath is a paper thin, mesh type white fiberglass sheet that wraps directly around the metal baffle.

Any idea what this is called and/or where I can find it?

#4 grade course grade steel wool.
Two wraps around the outside of the baffles.
Cut a piece of hardware cloth and wrap this over the steel wool.
Three pieces of cut off coat hanger wraps the front middle, and back of the baffles. Cinch the hanger wire down tightly by twisting the ends together with a pair of pliers.

When you attempt to stuff this doobie you just rolled into the mufflers you're going to discover that you didn't take rolling this thing seriously. Tight is right.
I've had to drive them in with a sledge.

I learned this from my dad who was a WWII veteran. He learned it from the Army. He was using this exact method to tame the lake pipes on his flat head hot rod.
