How did you feel about the sound levels with and without baffles? Did you find it to be insanely loud, pleasing or somewhere in between?

Did removing the baffles make much difference? It sounds like one guy in the video isn't sure. Did you notice any performance change?

I think I like it better without the baffles. it's a little deeper. Total sound level isn't really much different. The baffles are SO SMALL! They are little rings that are only about an inch long. There is NO baffling at all, just a metal ring.
I'm not really sure how you'd call them baffles.

On the performance side I didn't ride it with the baffles in. But same as with the sound I don't see how it could make a difference.

Sounds really good. Not too loud.

Do you have a rough idea of the db noise rating on this setup? Is it even close to the CA legal limit of 80? I’m ansxious about installing then dealing with the expense of replacing the original system.

Haha... one guy above me responds “not too loud” and other guy below me “damn it’s loud”

Which is it gents? Anyone have ACTUAL db measurements or a relative comparison to the original (stock) pipes? Sheesh.

I've ridden a lot of loud bikes without any trouble.
After riding this with the full system my ears are ringing like I'd just left a concert.
It's LOUD!

I ride with ear plugs but do not feel that it is crazy loud (not even close to my 2025 R1 with graves system) It is definitely over 80db and thought I heard around 103db. I will try to a level when I get the bike back at home.
