The whole point of aftermarket exhausts is usually performance enhancement and lighter weight, isn't it?

What you are doing is making the bike give *less* power output than the stock cans would!

It seems a bit backwards to me ....

I hope it's not going backwards! I don't think a couple of steel fluff could do much to performance. These things are extremely loud

I know how loud they are, I have a set here...

But what I said applies.

Fair enough, hence I would like to do this deadening properly to avoid any adverse effects with the help of members here.

I doubt that it can be properly done unless you get a different silencer that isn't as loud. You will gain power from opening up the exhaust (I've heard she loves to breathe, de-catted or arrow system shows real gains), and thus 'deadening' will most likely always lose a little power. I hope not too much

Clogging up the exhaust makes it worse. You can try a longer baffle universal type. If you can find one that fits. Wire screen mesh might work if you can roll it up properly.

Wire screen mesh! That's a great idea thanks. I can do that in the mean time while I look for a longer baffle to fit.
I guess the mesh would be less restrictive than steel wool and probably easier to install and secure too

Try pot scrubbers. Steel wool will compress too easily and restrict air flow. Pot scrubbers are made from a thin band of stainless steel, are harder to compress and will allow more air to flow through than steel wool. Yet since pot scrubbers are basically a long, thin band of material, they have a lot of surface area to bounce sound waves around, which ultimately will reduce exhaust volume.

Btw, if you continue to experiment with steel wool, it is best to use the stainless variety.
