newbie

Hello all, been watching this board for a while and decided to join. Also I am looking for a stock exhaust for a 900 custom. I have the cobra dragsters and just can't take the noise any more. I would be willing to do a trade if anyone is interseted. The cobras have maybe 500 miles on them and are spotless. Lets see if the attachment works.

Good looking bike! Those are speedster shorts you got there. The dragsters are even louder. I have the shorts on my custom, You should keep them and maybe get the stocks too.

Speedsters, yes thanks. I loved them at first but now taking the longer rides they just drive me crazy and the neighbors don't like me very much at 4 am. I am looking to go back to stock but just drill the holes for a nice tone but not too loud. Thanks for the compliments on the bike, love the custom a great bike and fun to ride.

I know nothing about the cobras...but do they make (or can you modifier another) baffle insert to try and quite it down? This will save you money, unless you are just wanting new pipes. (My V&H are loud, but they do sell a baffle for it.) Just wondering.
