Default santee laf y pipes

Hi, I was hoping someone here has tried these pipes. I have v&h big radius now but i thnk i like the look of the santee better. My concerns are they have no baffle. Will this screw up the engine in time? My bike is a 09 fatboy. Thanks for any help. Mike

J&P Cycles notes in their catalog:
  1. "For show use only due to short length (tunning difficulties may arise).
  2. Heat shields not available
  3. Baffles cannot be installed
  4. There is no warranty on exhaust pipes and mufflers with regard to any discoloration. Blueing is caused by tuning characteristics, cam timing, carburetor jetting, overheating, etc. and is not caused by defective manufacturing.
Hope this helps a bit more.

I ran them before and they are loud... but unless you have cams it's just loud no soul to the sound... you know? And the rear pipe blows a pretty good size blue flame out everytime you slack the throttle, like when you let go to shift... Cool but prob not good for the motor. But I had to try them I got them used and cheap so no money lost... I ran them for a few weeks then sold 'em. I'd stick with what you got if i had to chose between the 2.

I tried that to... I got a set of small 4 inch long baffels but even those didn't fit in I would have had to cut them in half... Torque cones would be better.

I've been running the 2" LAF's for 4 years now and I love them. Extremely loud and gets that great decel pop. I coated the inside of the pipes with Kreem's Blue Shield and the pipes are only blue very close to the heads and are gold half way down the pipes. I personally like the gold look. No torque cones either.

Probably put a set of DKCustoms Thunder Torque inserts in them to mellow them out a bit.
