Baffles removed on VLX 600

Can baffles be replaced on stock VLX 600 pipes? I'm buying a 2008 model next week but the previous owner removed the baffles. It's very loud and not sure if it affects the engine or the way the bike runs.

Is it stock exhaust? If it is, not easily as they would have been cut out.

I've seen a few sets of new stock take-offs occasionally on Craigslist. Ebay is another thought, but you'll probably pay more there. Just have to be patient and look around.

Cheap fix is to make some lollipop baffles.
