no baffles

well, i know that if i take the baffles outta my exhaust, i'll lose some power and torque, but i was wondering if any of you knew exactly how much? i got the vance and hines long shots on a 03 1600cc road star. im not concerned about losing power really, i think that when i re-jet the carb i can recover some of the "lost" power that is caused from the baffles being gone. any imput would be nice. thanks

Re: no baffles

IMHO, taking the baffles out is the wrong move. In the beginning it sounds pretty neat, but after a while it will wear off and you'll start to realize they really sound like . I would just stick w/ them as is. Save up for different pipes or a different bike. Just my $.02...

not only that but I think if im not mistaking the backpresure change requires valve readjusting as well. your valves will work differently and tend to wear out much quicker if they have not been tuned. if Anything ive seen people drill holes in them and it makes them louder w/out necessarily having to take them completely out and still have a pretty good sound.
