Web. Re-packed the 1.75" baffles last fall. I just sprayed down the outer baffle edge and nut/bolt with WD-40 and let soak for a bit.

I'm not completely dissapointed, but it hasn't been what I wanted. Yes they are a bit louder than factory and they look pretty good but they have an annoying backfire at times. Plus they could be louder. Long story short local bike shop said replacing the baffles with Big City Thunder replacments would give me a better sound with more hp.
