after market mufflers

Postby dj70sscamino » Wed Jul 23, 2014 6:15 pm



Have a question for all. I have a 94 Aspencade and I want to replace my mufflers. Has anyone here installed the Daytona Torq or Hollywood mufflers with no baffles. If so, did you have any issues like poor gas mileage or performance problems. I know the ads say no rejetting is needed and you get more power, but real life isn't always the same. Thanks for any responses !!!

Friend of mine put Hollywood's on his 1500. Swapped them back a month later due to the drone.

I really like my Hollywoods... but I have the baffles in. When I first installed it seemed as though they were creating an odd buzz in (??) my helmet, but that's gone away now. I think I might try to pull the baffles to see what it sounds like without but not sure how easy that will be...

I have Daytona on my 89. They came without baffles and was acceptable until the third stroke when the noise hurt my head. With baffles there is a low rumble and with hard riding about 2 miles less per gallon. Highway speed without baffles does interfere with listening to radio if not wearing a full helmet. Sounds more like a sports car than a motorcycle. It will make um look when you ride past.

The Daytonas give enough "noise" to make them look ? I would say thats a good thing . . . may have to look into a set for mine.
Reputation is what other people know about you. Honor is what you know about yourself. Our stress about it happens when the two aren't the same. Be true to yourself and to hell with what everyone else thinks!

I bought and installed a set of Jardine slash cut slip ons for my 1500 on ebay. It is loud but not obnoxious. Sounds like a sports car. Runs a little better but definitely an attention getter when most goldwings are stealth mode.. I like the sound.
