Has anyone had any experience using the Samson performance rings in place of the baffles? Thinking of doing so on a 03 sportster. If so, are they quite a bit louder? Do they provide enough backpressure? I have 2 and one quarter inch pipes. Any comments would be appreciated, Thanks.

I have their preformance rings in a set of samson street sweepers for my 2005 XL1200c. I never ran them without the rings but I did ride about 250 miles before I rejetted the carb and my pipes blued pretty bad. After the rejet it runs like crazy though.

they are much better than drag pipes, but not as good as tuned baffles. I have used them before to restore "some" power on drag pipes..

yeah, I would have liked to bought baffles for my pipes, but with the turn the street sweepers have at the end I dont think you can fit them in.
