To all who runs V&H cruzers

Hey everyone.. Got myself a steel on a set of V&H pipes that I couldn't turn down.. I was wondering if the majority of you are running with or without the baffles? Not quite sure what to expect out of these.. should know by the weekend though!

Thanks

You might want to check and see if it's illegal to run without baffles. I had a not so nice sheriff deputy that was not amused with the fact that I did not have baffles in mine (prior to the cruzers.) The cruzers sound just fine with the baffles in IMO.

I put the Cruzers on last year and they are plenty loud with the baffles in.

I had mine installed by the local dealer a few years ago and they took it upon themselves to do so sans the baffles. It was so rediculously loud that I had to take it back and have them put the baffles back in. You will find that they will be plenty loud with the baffles, your neighbors will still tolerate you, you wont set off every car alarm in a half block area on both side of the street and sometimes a block over. I'm also pretty sure they are designed with the baffles so you get some back pressure.....Good Luck!

Have had my V&H Cruzers on for a couple months now and they are plenty loud with the baffles in. I can't imagine how loud they could be without them. I am probably borderline with the nieghbors now when I leave for work at 6:15 am, don't want to push it any more. They do give the bike some attitude!!

I agree. We have one bike with no mufflers, and it is loud. some back pressure is good.
