Road burner exhaust

Any one just take one of the baffles out to get just the right sound and loudness?

I'm no expert on the subject but it would seem to me that having uneven flow/restrictiveness of the two exhausts would not be ideal. There will always be some variation from length and bend of the pipes, but one with a baffle and one without would be pretty different. It could, potentially, mean one cylinder is running richer or leaner than the other.

Again, not an expert here and maybe someone will correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems like the two cylinders operating inconsistently would be a bad idea.

Feel the same way, different power bands and tuning night mare I would think.

Thanks for the info. I wasn't sure about it either, but what you said makes sense. I'll put it back in
