I run with just a 1/2" hole drilled into the end blank and for me it's perfect.
I hate bikes with loud for loud's sake pipes, all they do is annoy people.
I have put the stock silencers on as a back to back test and although ok at tick over, they have a very annoying drone at cruising speeds.
Also, around here it's horse country and have often stopped and switched off to let them go past. Always get a thank you wave from the riders.
It's a bit like oil choices, you will never get everyone to agree what's best, so each to their own.

I was reading thru this thread and realized I never posted only voted. I heard a set of Magnflo's on a DynaWideGlide back in 2017 and realized, that was the sound I was looking for. So I ordered a set for a Sportster from MagnFlo and installed them (May 2017). Ah, the sweetest Sound! Now that I've been running them for over a year now, the steel, spiralled baffle tubes rattle when the pipes are cold but quit when they're hot. I've e-mailed MagnFlo about this..no replies. So, can I recommend them? Well the outsides look good and they seem to be holding up, otherwise the cold rattle probably keeps the "gremlins" at bay. So, I guess I'm Neutral on the recommending part. They sure sound good, tho.
