    I am at bike week and I hear certain bikes when shifting gears it sounds like the bike is sucking air back in. I think its called reverb but I could be wrong. Why does the bikes make this sound. I kind of like it . My wife has vance and hines shorties on her 07 softail can I get this sound for her bike.
    Thanks for the help

    If the sound you like sounds like someone sitting on a whoopie cushion, I'll guess they are straight pipes with no baffles.
    Written sound descriptions are always a guess. :59:

    I agree with Breeze, sounds to me like baffle-less exhaust. You may like the sound but may not care for the performance IMO.

    :p Lack there of performance, some equate loud with more power, in alot of cases this is not so:D
