quiet, light slip on cans?

I know most of you on this website want to increase the Db's of your SuperHawks and so did I.
I did a full Bafflectomy and now my VTR is way too loud and does not pull all that well at low RPM's.
I realize a re-jetting might solve the problem but would rather look for a set of slip-ons that do not require re-jetting.
So my question is, what is the lightest, quietest slip-ons, not requiring re-jetting

you deserve to suffer. You could have taken small steps until you got to where you were satisfied soundwise, but noooooo.

quiet pipes, i don't know, but you could probably buy some OEMs cheap and do a partial bafflectomy, and then maybe sell your boomers to someone who likes all the vroom-boom.

As was said the nice thing about doing the bafflectomy is you get to hear it along the way so you can stop where you like it. Anyway, the only thing resembling "quiet" in an aftermarket pipe I can think of or have ever heard are Yoshimuras with a street baffle. You just missed a fairly nice used titanium pair on ebay that sold for a fair price...Or you can just buy another set of stockers and do it gradually this time...

I would like to add that the Leo's I installed, with the inserts in place, are IMHO one of the best solutions that compromises stock and aftermarket db levels.
I had to order the conical end caps seperately, because the "spigot" end caps that came with these made a chirping type sound on deceleration. The design of the conical ends thank goodness does not make this strange noise.

Here's another option, Blueflame cans with removable baffles. Not cheap though. I've had these for over 7yrs. & still great. Have not had to repack, come with lifetime warranty.
