Only 5% made jokes and were no help at all? Wow, that's impressive!

I've seen baffle "stock" before, it looks like a cheese grater turned into a long tube. It comes in different diameters and you cut it to the length you need. JP Cycles, Custom Chrome, or one of those guys has it.

"Crazy" is a pretty good description of messing with the pipes at the header end. That could result in engine damage from burned exhaust valves. NOT RECOMMENDED.

Reducing the diameter at the far end is a much better idea. If you can include a diverter in there you would almost have a real muffler.

As for the type of answers you get from random, unknown individuals on Internet forums........your analysis is pretty typical. You neglected to mention that there is usually one or two good suggestions mixed in there; the problem is picking them out. In this case, I know that there was at least ONE.

You need to adjust the intake to compensate for the loss of backpressure caused by removing the baffles. If you have a carburetted bike, you'll need to re-jet the carb. If you have a fuel-injected bike, you adjust the fuel mix via an electronic controller like a Power Commander.

Or, you could just leave the baffles in.

No, that's not right. "A Dynojet" usually means a kit that has the carb jets for your bike and exhaust setup. If you have EFI, you won't need it; the PC does that job. Likewise, if you have a carb, there's nothing to connect a PC to. It's one or the other.

Maybe what you're being told is the bike should be tuned on a "dyno," which is actually a dynometer, often built by Dynojet Inc. That's the thing they strap your bike to and run it, simulating actual road conditions while they adjust either the carb or the EFI.

"Dynojet" = Brand of Dynamometer, known for its ability to show Massive HP gains on a vehicle with only a cheap programmer, a K&N Filter, and a hacksaw to cut off the pipes/cats.

Whether or not those "gains" are REAL is subjective.

Probably, what they've been telling you is: you need to bring your bike to them so they can charge you $162.50/hr for 6-10 hours of Dyno-time so they can have their "Tuna" futz with it until it runs like Shyte.

But it'll sound fast and powerful.

SIGH.

It is likely that what you want to do is ILLEGAL......both because of the noise generated AND the emissions.

I propose that you just RIDE the bike and enjoy it for what it IS.
