I have an '09 Classic, and I finally decided I'd take the first step toward "baffle reduction" and knock out the first screens on my bike. I went to drill out the first screen, and when I looked down the pipe, I saw a solid plug, not a screen. Not to be deterred (hell, I already had several tools out), I drilled out the screen/plugs with a 7/8" hole saw. Nice difference. Now I'll ride it around for a while (dirty job, but someone's gotta do it), and see if I wanna go to the next step of removing the cover and drilling holes in the baffle itself.
Anyway, I was wondering what's up with the solid plug instead of the screen? Any one know?
My biggest fear is when I die, my wife will sell all my guitars for what I told her I paid for them.
