Removing a baffle

Will removing the baffle on my RS-3 exhaust make my bike sound better and be louder? If so how would I go about doing it? Also will it affect my performance at all?

Is the baffle a packable style??

If so give it a try.

Has it been rejeted?? It might work

If it has stock mapping or jetting It will be lean and burn up some valves.

It may run poorly just off idle and breath better only on top.

And your neighbors will hate you.

I'm not sure if its packable and I am told by the previous owner it was jetted when the full exhaust was put on. It sounds nice just not that loud. What mufflers will sound good and be louder?

If i recall the rs3 is what i have on my bike and the race baffle is just a pipe at the end of the exhaust held in by to screws. Unscrew the 2 bolts and pull it out is like 6 inches if that. Louder ehh a bit at HIGH RPM

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

It will make your bike sound gay...unless it's the quiet insert designed to be removed.

Your bike needs back pressure....removing the baffle makes it loose HP.
