2018 CVO Exhaust Recommendations?

I have a 2018 CVO with the Vance and Hines Power Duals and the S&S MK45 mufflers. Even with the baffles in the sound is too loud for my liking. When I got the bike my concern was the stretch bags seemed to swallow up the 4" mufflers so the 4.5" looked a bit better IMO but they are LOUD! I commute to work early in the AM and it wakes everyone up in the neighborhood for sure when I head to work

Anyone have a recommendation for a solid, rumble exhaust that isn't too loud? I don't want quiet stock sound but something toned down from these MK45s. Thanks in advance!

For me, HD street cannons work pretty good. Pretty good sound, for a M8, when you open the throttle and reasonable when just riding. Others will totally disagree, it is just my opinion.

I agree with the H-D street cannons nice sound but not too loud. They do take a few hundred miles break in and quiet down.

Pull the sound reducer out of the Mk45's and pinch the ends shut a little.

Or drive a core plug into the front end, then drill a 1/4 hole in the center of it. Then adjust the tune as needed by enlarging the hole.

Both methods will make it flow more through the tube wall and less down the open center
