Removing a baffle from a Yoshi exhaust?

I was trying to remove the baffle from my Yoshi exhaust the other night and could not get it to come out. I removed the small screw at the end and looked inside to see if there was anything else holding it but I did not see any. Is there a special trick to getting these out? I have an '08 GSXR 600 with full Yoshi exhaust and a TRC carbon fiber slip on.

TRC? do you have pics?

if the end and forward caps dont have rivots you may need to cut. My Yoshis were rivoted together (Ride Smart's)

I didnt see any rivets inside the exhaust when I looked inside. I don't have pics of the inside of the slip on but here is a link to the one I am talking about.

So are the rivets easy to get to or is it not worth it. I know Patrick pulled out the baffle on my 02 gsxr 750 yoshi slip on and he said it was really easy but I never saw him do it.

Oh, i was talking about the end cap being held on by rivets. Dont have any clue about how the baffle is secured. Sorry for the confusion.

just drill out the rivets on one end...we had to do both ends to get everything out. and then put all new rivets on.

if you have the full you can pull just the silencer out with a hex screw right at the tip and it slides right out.

I removed the set screw, and it doesn't want to slide out.

First, might as well do all the rivots cuz you wont find and stainless steel ones to match the factory rivots from Yoshi.

Second, sometimes the baffle tube mounts to the endcap and is loose on the manifold endcap side.

Protect the carbon fiber and wrap w blue tape or just be cautious.

May need to use a long extension down the inside of the muffler to gently tap out the endcap. Once removed you can pull out the insulation or some of it to make it louder. This may have a temperature effect on the CF though.

Baffles? usually only the fiberglass insulation absorbs in a slip on through the inner tube's holes.(absorbs the pulse vibrations)

Factory/oem uses baffles unless you're looking at a GP or shorty set up(or rattletrap)

Prolly just in there nice and tight. get you some pliers or vice grips and grab just that inner cone and pull. it will come out. i pulled mine out of my slip-on. on the slip-ons they actually tack weld that hex screw in. had to cut thru the weld and then take the screw out and the silencer slid out.

hey guys, he's wanting to remove the silencer tube that is held in by the allen screw. He is NOT trying to remove the packing (aka 'gut' the muffler). Please don't confuse him by telling him to drill the rivets!

You DO NOT want to drill the rivets to remove the silencer tube.

Just bring it by Motorcycles Unlimited!

I think he confused most people when he referred to it as the baffle. But yes just the silencer won't need any rivets drilled (if it is a full system). Now if you do what we did you have to drill out the rivets.

BTW how you been Scott...long time no see buddy!
