    Well I'm in love with this '05 fatboy I aquired recently...and it has brought alot of peace and happiness so far but...

    These V&H big radius pipes are a little louder than I'd like. Or maybe it's the tone. I'm not sure.

    I've heard bikes with the 88B with Vance & Hines bigshots and quiet baffles installed. I thought they sounded great. More "rumble" and a little quieter. Problem is I've only heard that set-up in you-tube videos.

    Do you think I would get the sound I'm looking for with V&H bigshots w/quiet baffles?

    Before buying a new set of pipes I would check to see if they make quiet baffles for the pipes you have now. It would be much cheaper and if you dont like it you can always sell the baffles on Ebay. Even if V&H doesnt make a quiet baffle you can check other brands such as big city thunder. They make a quiet baffle that will fit just about all applications.
