Question about 2003 Harley Davidson XL 883 R Sportster
I have a Sporster XL883 2008 Model and replaced the sock exhausts with Vance & Hines Straightshots HS Slip Ons. The problem is that they are too loud! So i ordered a pair of Vance & Hines quiet baffles. Could you somebody tell me the difference in noise (in Db) before and after insatlling the baffles? Your help would be very helpfull.
About 3-5db but you must remember db is not a linear scale but logirythmic. basicallyy the baffles will remove the harsh rasp off the pipe and make them deep in sound, when cold they will be as loud as normal but once they have some heat in them they quieten down
