Yea, I have them. They are a little loud for my taste. At 6 am when I crank it up to head for work, I keep looking around - checking for neighbors.....

Got them. Yes, they're loud and you can't remove the baffles to modify the sound (louder or quieter).

Same goes for me about the noise and baffles. Much happier with the d-goat.

Saturday the wife and I took a ride north along the delaware river to a town called New Hope in PA. Small town. Big bike hang out. On the weekend you can easily see well over 500 bikes. There was a lot of traffic (normal) in town. We were waiting at a traffic light. Six bikes in front of me, about twenty behind me. .....The noise was un-believeable. I couldn't even here my wife talking to me. Well actually maybe that was good.

Popping

Installed my new slip on cobras. Prob is the right side keeps popping. The left side if fine. Ive re-tighten the nuts on both sides and where they join and I still have the probem. at cruzing speed they sound great just on leting off the gas do I start getting the popping on the right side. I havent done the carb. I need to find where those screws are at and see if that helps. any other suggestions other then loosing the cobras and going back to the degoat pipes?

Adjusting the air mix might eliminate your popping.
