Aftermarket Motorcycle Exhaust Baffles & Mufflers For Sale
What is a muffler baffle?
A motorcycle muffler baffle is an insert that is put into a motorcycle muffler. The baffle is usually a round piece of pipe that has holes punched or drilled through it. These holes are often angled allowing air to pass through them in a specific direction.
How a motorcycle muffler baffle works?
In order to understand how a motorcycle muffler exhaust baffle works, you need to think about sound waves. Imagine looking into a pond and throwing a small stone in the center of the pond. When the stone hits the water, it produces numerous waves that expand from the center of impact. These represent sound waves. Now throw another stone into the pond and throw a larger stone a foot away from where the last stone hit. See how the waves collide and cancel each other out? This is how a baffle works.
The sound waves travel through the exhaust pipe and are directed into each other canceling a portion of the waves out. This reduces the sound level the motorcycle produces while providing a certain amount of backpressure the engine needs to perform properly.
While reducing the sound levels, motorcycle baffles and motorcycle mufflers also allow you to control the tone of the exhaust. Most people prefer a deep, low bellowing tone vs a high, “tin” sounding rattle.
Reduce the noise level of your exhaust
If you are building a bike on a budget and you don’t want to dump a ton of cash into an exhaust system, a universal motorcycle muffler or motorcycle muffler baffle might be the right choice for you.
Easiest and cheapest way to reduce the noise level of your exhaust
Full exhaust systems are expensive and sometimes your build is more of a grocery getter that a show bike. If that is the case, we have a solution for you. Universal mufflers look good and can keep the neighbors happy by reducing the noise levels. Universal exhaust baffles can reduce the noise and allow you to tune the sound of your bike while producing the right amount of back pressure for optimum performance.
If you have a project bike that has stock mufflers and it sounds like a sewing machine instead of a motorcycle, a slip-on universal muffler might be a good option for you.
Stock exhaust systems are designed to reduce the noise levels. There is very little consideration for the performance of the motorcycle. The more air that can pass through your engine, the more power it can produce. If you have ever been to a GP race, or watched a top-notch drag bike go down the strip, you know this to be true. Not all street motorcycles that are built for performance have to be uber loud. There is a happy medium that can be met where the bike can breathe and you can still hear.
Do quiet baffles affect performance?
Universal motorcycle exhaust baffles, sometimes referred to as slip-ons, are a great solution for reduced sound levels and increasing performance. These motorcycle exhaust baffles are fairly inexpensive when compared to a full exhaust system, and they are easy to install. These motorcycle muffler baffles come in a variety of styles to choose from. Classic styles like the Cocktail Shaker Mufflers or the Fishtail Mufflers are still popular styles today.
We also carry shorty style and megaphone style mufflers. All of these options can provide a reduction in sound and still allow good performance gains.
Tuning Your Exhaust
The piece inside your motorcycle muffler that reduces the sound and creates a tone in your exhaust is your motorcycle muffler baffle. These baffles look like pipes with holes punched in them. Sometimes they look similar to round cheese grater. These motorcycle baffles re-direct the exhaust gasses as they pass through the muffler. This can reduce the sound levels and create a certain amount of back pressure which can aid in the performance of your motorcycle.
