    I ordered Roadhouse slip on mufflers for my 08 rstd, should be here next week. Has anyone had experience with this install? Can I remove and wrap the baffles for a quieter rumble?

    Hello,
    Have you received and installed your pipes yet! I have an 08 RSTD and am leaning toward purchasing the Roadhouse brand. Please let me know what you think of the pipes.
    Thanks,

    they sent me a damaged set, new set is scheduled to deliver 2/8, will let you know how install goes. I also found a baffle from Smartpartz.com, I can add to the Roadhouse if it is to loud.

    Thanks, looking forward to hearing your review. I was in Durham NC Tuesday and stopped in the Yamaha store there. They have a used 07 RSTD with the Roadhouse brand on it. We started it up in the store and they are louder with a deep rumble. Wanted to take the bike outside to get the full effect but it was raining. I do not think they will be to loud. The store quoted me a set for $400.00. I need to shop around for price but that may be in the ballpark. The PN quoted was 1811-1145.

    I got mine from an e-bay seller called GM Cycles. They were $369 including shipping for the slash cut tips. Make sure they are not blemished if you get them from anywhere else but manufacture. I do not know if different tips sound different. I have heard Roadhouse shark fin tips on another bike, Vulcan, very nice sound, loud but not obnoxious.

    I put the Roadhouse slash cut mufflers on Sat. and went for a 200 mile ride. They were very easy to install, fit and finish was good. They are a little louder than I expected. I have an aftermarket stereo and I am thinking of adding a baffle to them to quiet them a little more, they are really good sounding, get on the throttle and people know you are passing them. Not much popping on deceleration, I will give them another chance before altering them. Too cold to ride, even in Tex. Will keep you posted.

    I think I finally got my pipes like I like them. The Roadhouse slash cut slip on was a little loud so I installed 4" baffles. I then wrapped the baffles with steel wool and window screen secured with metal zip ties. This produced the sound I was looking for, great rumble at idle and cruising speed, very good growl on acceleration. Others I have seen used Bub, Khrome Works, or L.A. Chopper slip on mufflers. Don't know how they sound. Good luck, Live to Ride, Ride to Live.
