Quiet exaust

I have speedster swept long pipes on my 14, with no baffling. Looking for quieter pipes. Thinking about going back to sock pipes. Any thoughts?

I would go back to the stock pipes and call it a day.

Yes, but have every priced a set of stock pipes? Very expensive, unless you can find a good used set.

Looks like Cobra sells baffles for a lot of there pipes. Found some for about $40. not sure of that was each or pair. Maybe try inserting baffles before ditching them?

here's the thing with pipes, you have 2 options, loud pipes or stock quiet, because there's no such thing as middle range pipes (less than loud but more than quiet)

I would prefer quite over loud but new stock pipes are expensive so I'll try baffles. Thanks for the feedback. Does our forum have a swap section?
