Default Exhaust Baffles

I just bought an '02 vt1100 shadow sabre, and I believe the last guy took the baffles out cause this thing is ridiculously loud and my ears were ringing after taking my 50 minute ride home with it. I think he said it was a cobra exhaust, but not absolutely sure about that.

I know next to nothing about exhaust systems so now I'm trying to find out what baffles to buy to quiet this thing down a bit. Can you tell from this pic what kind of exhaust I have?

Looks like, maybe. No markings? J&P cycles has replacement baffles that arent all that expensive.

Did a little research, looks like they are Roadburner 2.5" Street Pros. Only one type of baffle I found from a company called smartpartz. I don't think it will help a ton but anything to help keep my neighbors as friends will be helpful.

Honda Sabre VT 1100 2000-07 Roadburner Exhaust Sytems

They sound pretty awesome without the baffles, but just a bit loud.

If the replacment baffles are like the ones I sent you in the J&P link you can wrap them with exhaust packing and it will tone it down a bunch. I have to do the same thing to my wifes ACE. No balffles in the Cobra pipes=LOUD!!!

ok so now I'm baffled (no pun intended). I measured the pipes after my baffles arrived and realize I actually have pipes that are 3" at the endcaps. So now I"m trying to figure out which pipes I have so I can order the right baffle again.

3" pipes, 2 into 2, on a 2001 Shadow vt1100 sabre. Can't find anything that looks like them anywhere.

Any ideas as to what pipes these are would be very welcomed.

*edit* I'd be happy to start taking things apart to find out, but never taken apart an exhaust and would not know where to look for a brand name.

*edit 2* my pipies look almost exactly like this one.

Is it possible the prior owner somehow jerry rigged 3" pipes onto this bike when the bike isn't really setup for it?

keep the baffles you have. keep the pipes you have.

wrap the baffles in heat resistant fiberglass wrap and use the lollipop baffle method to keep them in the pipes... (there are more lollipop baffles online. just search for it)

that's just the DIYer in me.

:edit: i've never tried this method, but bikes are nothing but machines, and machines do what i tell them
