I think the v & h quiet baffles, for example are wrapped with, I'm guessing, some type of fiber glass material. Can you wrap the regular baffles? If so, what do you use?

...if the baffles are removal, then yes you can wrap them. You can do a google search for baffle wrap or go to any of the shops that sell off-road bikes and buy it. I have used the product made by Moose and sold at most Yamaha shops.

My local carries the V&H wrap, gets it thru Drag. Cut to length, wrap. I run a couple of wraps of stainless wire around it, makes it last a little longer.

Thanks for the replies. Does the wrap do anything other than quiet things down? That is, any more power, or a lower sound?

I picked up some from a local metric dealer today. It's made by MSR about 7 bucks for a package. I'll wrap my V&H Ovals tonight and let you know how it works. Looking to quite it down just a little.

I use pipe wrap on my baffels (Wild Pigs) seems to work well and can get it at just about any hardware store for about 3 bucks. Has a little smell for a day or two...but goes away.:xhere:

Yes I'm aware of that. He sells 3 diffrent brands so just pick one and we'll call it that.

The packing was a pain in the azz. MSR stuff isn't the best. I'm already starting to blow some of it out the back of the mufflers. At this point I'm ready to just put the stock ones back on and forget it. V&H Ovals are nice mufflers but just a little too loud for me. The noise get's real old on a long road trip.
