I've been using dual cannons on my 1300 but as I get older I would really like something that produces less noise. Anyone know a source of similar style but quieter, ideally a bit shorter as the current ones stick out about 5 inches beyond rear bump bar, in stainless perhaps.

Mike ‘Beezledub’ Hausmann is they only guy I’ll recommend. Within reason he can make a style of your choice. All in s/s. Not  cheap but definitely the best .

Youcould fit baffles in the cannons and shorten them or cut them off and fit 2 bike cans or a decent 4 into 1 which helps the hp output

What Paul said

Mike's exhausts are the way to go.
.
Let the engine breath properly as well.
Cannons look pretty but aren't the best exhasts

Hi I put baffles in mine, very cheap and make it quieter, thanks to Paul's advice. Deb

Thanks all for suggestions. Mike ‘Beezledub’ Hausmann sounds like the man. For a quick fix, does anyone know if the VW Heritage Empi baffles fit or is it a case of knocking something up out of bits and pieces.

You can make your own but you can get a pair cheap as chips of flea bay.  Just measure inside diameter of your cannon outlet. Match this diameter with baffles of same o\d or as close as available. You will find what you get either slips straight in or you made need a bit of tweaking.

I have temporary cannons on my buggy build and the baffles quieten down somewhat but don`t expect miracles.  :D :D

I fitted baffles with exhaust wadding wrapped round them and the volume went from 119db @3000 rpm to 103db.

However, there was a noticeable drop in performance and the general driving experience wasn’t the same, so I have just removed them.

Like I said. Quality counts. Mikes exhausts not only look good but are tuned to suite the engine  ;-)up ;-)up
