My dad has a set of big radius on his deuce and put a set of thunder baffles in. His bike has a nice deep rumble. His bike is fuel injected and has sort of the lope of a cam without one. He did have to remap his bike but again it was fuel injected so i couldn't tell you about carbed. As far as for the installation you will have to take your pipes off to pull the baffles out. Thunder monster recomends that you drill a hole about an inch and a half from the end of your pipe for the best performance. If you have any other questions feel free to give them a call, they are very friendly people and will help in any way they can.

I had them in my big radius pipes, but they where a bit to loud for me. It was a very low pitched rumble, and when you cracked the throttle , oh boy they barked. You can install them with the pipes on the bike. Just remove the heat shields and follow the directions. I believe they ask you to drill a hole about 4 to 6 inches from the end of the pipe. The hardest part was geting the old baffles out. They are slightly curved, so you can't really twist them around to much..

Doesremoving the baffles from V & H Big Radius pipes ruin the baffles?

I'm wondering if I remove the Big Radius baffels and put in Thunder Monster baffles and i don't like the Thunder Monsters willI be able to put the Big Raduis baffles back in?

Most of the folks remove the stock baffle and cut the center out and weld in a piece of thin wall solid pipe. Move it farther forward up the pipe.. the ones I've heard sound just as good as the Thunder Baffles..

It was definately a lower pitch and louder. Especially when you cracked the throttle. If the VH's are relatively new you should be able to get the stock baffles out with out to much trouble. If you don't like them you can put the old ones back and fill the hole you drilled with some exuast tape. As mentioned above they where a bit to loud for me...

I was just wondering about the baffle question myself. I was looking at a used Custom with Big Radius and the previous owner had pulled the baffles all togeather. They sounded good but would **** off the neighbors you haven't met in the next few neighborhoods for sure. How much would putting baffles back in lower the volume of sound?
