I have Big Shots with the quiet baffles. The pipes are deeper with the quiet baffles and have a pretty mellow cruising tone. However, they still bark pretty loudly and will ring out under load (like going up a hill). They are also a good performing system. As far as jetting, you don't HAVE to unless you change/modify your intake. BUT, I took a suggestion from Charlie D to try on a friend's wife's bike. She had a completely stock 2007 1300S. Her husband and I put on Samson Warloard II Cannons. Afterwards, the bike was still tough to start (cold-natured). She was using the choke a lot and it had some lean surging issues, too. I came back and put in a #200 Keihn main jet, which is one size over the stock #195. I also put in a #58 pilot jet (one size over the stock #55). We stayed with the stock needle and spring. I also put in Glen's permanent A/F screw--which allows for easy adjustment of the idle mixture. The bike runs great now and she is all smiles. Another thing to consider when getting aftermarket pipes is the PAIR valve removal. I have done it on mine and we also did it on hers. It really improves sound--especially on deceleration.
