The bike came with drag pipes with no baffles. Although it sounded great, it also attracted attention from neighbours in about half a mile radius. I bought a couple of slipons similar to the originals but 3 inches shorter. I also bought a couple of 4" baffles to go in the pipes before the silencer. These proved to be unnecessary. The silencers are 2 1/4 inches whilst the drag pipes were 1 3/4 inches. I found that the standard hanger(bracket) had 1/4 spacers between it and the frame. By removing these spacers the silencers were aligned with the pipes and also sat nicely against the bike. The exhaust note is now reduced and I have happy neighbours. In a way it didn't matter anyway as they only speak French and I only speak English. However, they no longer put their hands over their ears when I start her I must admit I miss the drag pipes.
