Pat yourself on the back, you were correct with your first thought when you read the title before opening this thread
They don't exist........
.....yet!
I have been looking in to the cost of quite baffles for my bike so that during the week I can still use my bike early in the mornings, without pissing all the neighbours off.
* V&H Quick Release Baffles? * 880307 * V&H Quick Release Baffles? * 453769
Anyway this go me thinking about how they are made and how the actually attach to the bike. I would like a baffle that can be installed in a few seconds and uninstalled in the same amount of time. After a bit of research it would seem as expected that such a thing does not exist. So I have been looking at what a baffle is and how it is designed.
To the best of my reckoning we are talking about nothing more than a bit of light weight pipe that has a few holes in it from about half way. Now I realise that I have totally simplified what it is or possibly even completely overlooked something but I am thinking he who dares wins. Nothing ventured nothing gained and all that.
There is no great science here it is a pretty basic bit of kit by my reckoning so my plan is to make up a couple of baffles and work out some kind of quick fix solution for a fast install/uninstall.
If anyone has any ideas then please speak up as I certainly ain’t no engineer. I am just an averagely able person that is prepared to try something a little different for the sake of my own curiosity and hopefully yours.

Well my Scorpion baffle slots in the rear with a neat bolt secured into the muffler by a hex key. Now if I didn't mind boring out my new V&H pipes, I'd find/make a baffle that fitted in the back with a rebate to stop it sliding in, bore a hole through the pipe up and up through the baffle and secure with a small bolt inserted down and a nut pushed up from below. Alternatively, if the baffle could be tapped, then a hex key bolt could come from below, if there were enough room below to insert the key. Loctite may stop it vibrating out. I suspect I am less of an engineer than your good self, more of a Heath Robinson! I suppose another idea would be a collar that expands inside the pipe as you screw a bolt - but now I'm just guessing. Or I'd visit my local metal worker/smithy who can do almost anything and say "Any ideas mate?" I also seem to read that guys with drag pipes fill them with something that bungs them up somewhat - not sure where I read this. Anyway * V&H Quick Release Baffles? * 3768075377

* V&H Quick Release Baffles? * 428386 Yeah what he said * V&H Quick Release Baffles? * 852880

If you put a couple of screws in the rear of the exhaust then the rear baffle was made with an oversized rear plate that had some cut outs in it you could make a kind of slip over and twist lock type of thingy.

Oh well I know what I mean kind of, well I think I do, well I did but I'm not so sure any more * V&H Quick Release Baffles? * 938687981

Hmmmmmm some very good thinking there chaps, I'm starting to think this really is a goer * V&H Quick Release Baffles? * 3005623951

However I do eventually do this, it will have to be simple so as to make it easy for anyone that wants to copy it.

I want no tools required to be used for the install/uninstall
I want them to fit and detach in seconds

The only problem with simple idea's is, its easier said than done to keep them simple pale

Maybe a quick release lever like on a bicycle seat post or wheel.

Or an end cap with a smaller aperture secured with a clamp that has a key.
Final thought - have a look at Highway Hawk etc - pipes that have baffle fitted - how do they do it.

I think I know exactly what you mean Crash & will do something very similar * V&H Quick Release Baffles? * 184121345
Blues you are spot on with that * V&H Quick Release Baffles? * 184121345

I will try to do a drawing at the weekend if I get the chance, but in my minds eye I can totally visualise it.
I have spoken with a friend who has explained how baffles work and how you manipulate the air flow to reduce noise without overly restricting air flow
I have spoken to another friend of mine who has got the quick release levers in various sizes
I need to pop up to the local exhaust shop for some suitably sized and weighted pipe.
There will be several prototypes I am sure, before we actually get a quick release baffle that actually works as desired.
Let the fabrication begin

Yeah Baby
Who's the daddy, I knew I would have an idea one day that someone would think I should have thunk :shock:
Instead of the usual sort of thunking that I do that should not really be thought * V&H Quick Release Baffles? * 249703
