I have these I had made for the very same reason, have baffles but are still pretty loud! Would sell if they are of use to you?

They looks good but I'm thinking about puting a central silencer under the engine and the conect two short exhaust tipps coming out (like yours does) one on each side.

Yup that would work and probably be much quieter but I didnt want to chop my original pipes.
There are baffles fitted in mine which do silence it quite a bit but its still very lous as there is so little length in the pipes.
