Default Lollipop Baffle

I know I will get increased back pressure using a homemade lollipop baffle in gutted mufflers or drag pipes but will it also quieten it down?

Pattywagon that hurts, Yea I'm getting older but I'm more concerned with the neighbors. I lived in Alaska and no one cared but now I live in a neighborhood in Michigan that is quiet as a mouse.

No probably not. I have Thunder Monster baffles, which are a fancy kind of the same thing and they don't cut down on the music.

Lollipops are for children, what you need is a real performance exhaust that works which means it will have a muffler that works. I wish everyone on here would read Aarons (asw racing) excellent thread on exhaust systems. Open pipes kill your power over 95 % of the rpm range, a lollipop helps a bit it's still like draging a boat anchor behind you. The baffles in the muffler do a lot more than just quiet things down.

I ran a set of those Big City Thunder torque ring insert things a few years ago. They just cut down on the raspy throttle roll off "blaaat" a little bit, they don't really cut down on sound compared to real baffles. Same would be for the lolly pop trick most likely.

Speaking of which, I must be getting soft. I had been running open straight headers for a few years until recently when I slipped in some standard 4" baffles to make Johhny Law happy. The other day I took them out to see what the sound was like again and I was surprised at how loud they were. I couldn't see how I rode for so long without baffles, I just got used to it. I put the baffles back in, they definitely give you a bit more on the low end to mid range, easier on the motor, easier on the neighbours, and they make you legal.
