Question Baffle or not

I just bought a 1992 Honda Shadow VT 1100c Spirit
It has straight pipes. I was tol all it needed was a good carb cleaning but looking at it after getting them apart it has not been jetted, still has stock parts. My question is, what baffles will give me stock back pressure without having to put back stock pipes?

You probably won't get stock back pressure even with baffles in those straight pipes.

not to mention that Shadows sound terrible with straight pipes.

I don't think much anything sounds good after a couple hours on the road. I wish my bike had quieter pipes on it.
