I have a set of those on order, but I have my doubts they will work as well as advertised. 6 db is a HUGE difference. Decibels work on a logarithmic scale, so every 3 db's is a doubling of the noise (23 db is twice as loud as 20 db. 30 db is 10 times as loud as 20 db, and 40 db is 100 times louder than 20 db).
If I get the full 12 db, that would put me around 91-92 db, but I seriously doubt I'll get that much reduction. 6db would be great, that would put me at 97 - which is way more tolerable. I would love to be around 95 db or less. anything over 95 -96 for prolonged periods will give you permanent hearing damage.

If they do lower by 12db then all the better. The other option would be to reinstall the quiet stock pipes, which I did but went back to loud pipes again because I could not stand the quiet pipes, too quiet for me to hear when to shift gears, I shift gears by sound of the pipes. You might try those Hard Kore Quiet baffles but try to live with the sound you get. A 6db decrease is not all that much but it's worth a try.
