do you have a part number or a dealer for the insert?

I called Vance & Hines and they said that they only have one insert:  A165SSN and that it only drops it down a couple of decibals.

Again I love the look and the throaty sound but would like it alittle quieter.

If I recall, three dB "quieter" is about half as loud (or twice as loud if you go the other direction).

I like the looks of the CSOne, and almost bought one, but ended up with the Leo Vince which I really like a lot.

Yeah, "a couple of decibels" is actually quite a lot since db is measured logarithmically.  For instance, 2db is twice as loud as 1db but 3db is twice as loud as 2db - and 80db is twice as loud as 79db.

Finally got it installed today. Went to local Kawasaki shop and purchased a bolt that will work until the correct lenght comes in next week from V&H.

The outcome, well "AWESOME"  :) The sound is just right, not to loud and sounds great when you get on it. Totally satified now that the issues have been resolved.

A special thanks to Axxman for sending me the picture so I could see what the heck was going on.

Your very welcome RR :beerchug: Thats what we're all here for, To help each other out :)
The pipe looks awesome!!

I need to correct my earlier statement a little. I read where there are three measurements when talking about dB. The two main ones are "volume/loudness" and "acoustic power/sound intensity". When talking about volume (the one that is objectively "heard"), -3 dB is .816 times as loud and -10 dB is half as loud and -20 dB is .25 as loud.

To quote what I found:

Which increase corresponds to a doubling of the sound?

An increase of the sound level by 3 dB corresponds to a doubling (factor = 2) of sound intensity.
An increase of the sound level by 6 dB corresponds to a doubling of the sound pressure.
An increase in the sound level by 10 dB corresponds to the sensation of double the "volume".

Ok I bought the cs1 back in february ready to install now I ordered the quieter baffled insert while ordering they also suggested the fuelpack so I ordered the fuelpack from my local harley store
Question has anyone used the fuelpack it looks hard or difficult to install is it worth the effort

I would have skipped the fuel pak, you don't need it if you are only changing the pipe. If you were doing a full system and adding an aftermarket air cleaner that allowed more air in, then yet, you want to do something to manage the fuel.
