well i finally got my baffles from A&R and installed them yesterday, they sound amazing! couldn't be happier with the way they turned out, i rode it for a couple hours and they seem to be holding up nice to the heat, i will keep ya posted on how well the tips hold up, the cans don't seem to get that hot. now for you guys asking about the process:
I started off by using 220 grit sandpaper on the cans and moved up to a 400 grit to make them smooth, i did same process for the tips but had to sand off all the factory black on the tips to get down to bare metal, then i cleaned them really good and powder coated them in my garage, i have an old electric oven i bought for $20 on craigslist, bough my powder from powderbuythepound.com and used their matte tuscan black on the cans and their bike black for the tips, the tips are very glossy and turned out great! matches the bike perfectly, here are some pics of the finished product on the bike
