Those are by a company called "One Industries" I've been keeping an eye out also for some new graphics, & seems like there aren't as many options anymore.

What baffle is that?

It`s a home made one by the previous owner. There`s no internal baffle just this chunk of turned metal on the end.
Still very quiet but you can tell that the rest of the pipe is empty and so i`ve been told sounds like a chinnock.

Here`s a poor pic of a different angle.

Don`t worry the chap in the blue does eventually wake up LOL.

So does that weigh about 2 pounds? You could make a small resonator style exhaust insert to quiet a little of the hollow boominess, similar to the factory insert but longer and with a larger bore. Or get some round Supertrap exterior end cap baffles.

My post on p. 6 doesnt show the pics.   Here's some more:

 

This was about 5 years ago: my son's 8 yr old cousin wanted a ride.  The bike was running. I put him on it and I attempted to saddle up.  .As soon as I lifted my leg, Riley had rolled the throttle all the way back the engine started screaming, I reached for the clutch, Riley's foot banged it into First geat, and the bike shot out from under us, straight up in the air, ri[pping off the jerry-rigged 450R fender, and landing on its elft side.  I stood there, right leg still in the air, right arm holding Riley, and my left arm still reaching out for the clutch.  Our eyes big as saucers.  I though I'd hurt the poor kid,as I could feel him jiggling in my arm. Turns out he was laughing so hard he coulnt breathe, then finally "THAT WAS AWESOME!!!!"  Follwoed by my wife screaming "&%$#@! DID YOU DO THAT FOR?"  LOL. Good times.

 

My former 2000 XR600R: Nothing special, just a 450R rear fender (which I know think looks awful) and a  Trail Tech speedo.

I went a few years without owning a bike, then bought this 1995 XR600R last week (it's a work in progress).  Again, nothing special.  It came with an OLD Baja Designs lighting kit and Speedo, White Bros exhaust.  The bike sat in a garage for 10 years and the guy I jsut bought it from had it for a year, and beat the piss out of it.  every nut and bolt still look brand new.

Taking my youngest son out for a ride (and having flashbacks of Riley years ago, I held the clutch, then told him what not to touch, then we climbed on!)
