PostSubject: Looking for 2 mods   Thu Jun 30, 2016 12:51 pm

I'm looking for some quieter baffles for my C800 with some V&H Cruzers installed.
Planning a ride to Scotland soon and the long journey won't be much fun with the current volume of the pipes.
Are there any recommended which will fit and quiet it down a lot?

Also I want to be able to charge the battery via the cig lighter socket i have on the handlebars. So the charge lead will need to be male with this connector on the other end:


Are these available? Thanks

What charger you using? I have an Optimate and apparently you can get a lead that connects from that straight into your bikes 12v accessory socket, like this...

Would that be an easier way of achieving what you want... Unless I'm missing something......

Its a Halfords one, so the connecting lead is the same as the pic i posted so that one wouldnt work unless i cut the end off and soldered another connector on there.
Are quiet baffles expensive?

This ones on eBay USA, not sure if the bullet connector would be the right size, but worth a look?

Just on a side note for charging the bike.
I have a 12v solar panel on the roof of my bike shed, keeps the bike topped up and it doesn't have to be a really big solar panel. I have a large solar panel because I also use it to charge 3 large caravan batteries that I use an inverter on to plug most stuff in that I use in the bike shed for general working in there. If you look on ebay you can get 12v solar charger on there for about £15 or so. A lot come with various charger connection leads.
Just a secondary thought.

Mal make sure you set your preferences for:
Cheapest including postage. 

UK if you want it in a few days only but prices can be more expensive, however:
World wide will bring in China, real bargains to be had there and their quality has improved by far in the Las few years. Also most UK buyers get there's from there anyway. I buy most electrical straight from there.

Ended up getting this:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/131608464709?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

Works a charm, just what i was after.
Quiet baffles can only be ordered from the US which is a shame. I guess i could buy some exhaust packing and just shove that in and see if it helps
