Default Touring Fishtail Pipes

I am interested in installing Samson 33" straight fishtail pipes on my 03 Road Glide. Anyone with experience ?

Does anyone know if the old FL Rocket style pipes can be de-baffled?

Don't know about the rockets, but I ran a single fishtail on my Shovel. The sound was different and I liked it.

Skip is right when he says the sound of fishtails is "different".
And you may not like it. Try to find someone whose bike has them, and give a listen before you buy.

I'm runnin' Samson fishtails on my FLHT. They are straight through drag pipes. I put small baffles in them when I did the install. I love the way they sound. Kinda sound like glasspacks on a hotrod.
