If there's no video you can be assured that it is too simple to even warrant a video.
Here's the How To;
1. Remove the end caps of the pipes
2. Remove the set screw that holds the baffle in place
3. Remove current baffle and install new baffle
4. Put end caps back on

i wish someone would do a video of installing quiet baffles in vance and hines on a 1800 vtxf, or instructions with pictures,
Ypu need plenty of spray lubricant, and possibly a slide hammer to hook onto from the inside of the baffle. Not exactly EZPZ

You are talking like a slide hammer used for body work. I am assuming here.

You might have to take heat shields off to get at baffles.
On my HK3", the heat shield is only around the exposed side of the pipe, and the baffle bolt is accessed from the backside. But I'm guessing maybe not all pipe mfg's are the same.

Mine has a end cap, and my heat shields are welded on. When I get my self right, I am going to remove heat shields and wrap in orange exhaust tape. Might redo baffles, but it sounds so nice with burned out ones.

The HK's have end caps too. I believe Cobra does as well.

Looks like a wire terminal epoxied to the metal.
That probably breaks off quickly.
They would call that a "Lollipop"
Some pix. One VTX with cross brackets and a washer plus a sink strainer on HK3.
