Well, after riding with this loud noise coming out of my pipes, I tried to find an original exhaust system for my '03. I almost got one but the internet here conspired to prevent me from getting it.
But it happens so no worries. I looked on Cobras site to see if there were any other options for a quieter baffle and there is but on a limited income, it would be tight. So, break out the hacksaw, Dremel, and the mig welder. Since I already didn't like the baffles in the pipes now, I decided to try and make them into the quiet core type baffles. Long story short, it worked!! Now all I have to do is hope I welded them good enough!! LOL A Harbor Freight welder and me with very limited welding skills.
