A recent 95in build has the Softail with a louder and higher toned exhaust note. Before going to a different pipe I'm going to try replacing the BigShot Staggered's standard baffles with the quiet baffles. Have heard/read they will lower the volume a few decibels and deepen the tone.

Anyway... would anyone having done this in their garage have a tip or two, or general direction on the ease of doing something like this. It is uncharted territory for me. Thanks.

Make sure the packing is on tight. It will make installation easier.
Also, they are very difficlult to remove with loose packing.
They are a bit more quiet at idle a cruise speed but still pretty loud
when you gas it.

I put them in my bigshot longs and they were easy to install. The hardest part was i had to remove the heat sheilds. I have a pair that i used for a couple of hundred mile if you want to buy em.
