Default Is there any muffler to replace the UFO megaphone?

Hello Guys I am looking for a replacement. I would love it if I lived at the track. I am just worried about bothering my neighbors and being pulled over by the cops while trying to have fun. Dont get me wrong it sounds good, but I dont want to push my will on others.

Look up star rider performance. Owner is Mike Lees, he worked with UFO, he has baffles and end caps that can quiet it down.

I have a Dragstar 4/1 from UFO, it has the bologna-cut straight pipe, which I ran for about a month before I decided I needed something quieter, and I bought the UFO megaphone to replace it. I got two end caps of different sizes, and the megaphone came with a baffle. It does quiet it down, but it's still loud.

It took Jon Cornell about a month to make one for me, the megaphone, I spoke w/him on the phone, and ordered one. Less than a month later, he died.

You can look at this:

It really quiets-down my UFO 4/1 and I still run my Dynojet Stage 7 setup. Sean does a shorter canister, contact Morley's Muscle.

Star Rider Performance per their website requires me to send them mine to fit with their inserts. Looks like they sell a very similar product.

What kind of performance hit with going with baffles and end caps? If the sound can be dropped at least a 3rd I would be completely happy. However, if that is going to kill performance by the same amount I am willing to tow the bike to events. LOL!!
