Talking Hooker Rebel Baffle Mod

I bought and installed a set of black Hooker Rebels I like the way they look and the way they sound, but it was a little to loud and performance on my 883c was lacking after I installed them. Tried to buy quiet baffles but they don't sell them anymore. So after a lot of contemplation and reading everything I could about exhaust and back pressure and all the good stuff. I decided to modify what I had. This is what I did.
Bought four 3/4 inch washers and got them welded onto each end of the baffle.
Results are good, increase in power and sound is good but not to loud.
I am wondering what you guys think. I am including a picture of the baffle installed. I have a washer on each end please any feedback would be appreciated.

It still sounds really nice. I would say it sound about as loud or maybe a little louder than the older SE's. Take into consideration the hole is only 3/4 inch wide and the washers fit perfectly.

Seems like you worked it out. Good job.
