This is a continual discussion here online. What you did was step one. If you're happy with the sound that's great. I never removed my pipes from the bike and I removed the complete baffle pipe as well as enlarging the flow to just about the whole inside diameter of the pipes. Search discussions on de-baffling and you'll see tons of advice. I did like the clear pictures though
Heh, it's actually step 2.
Just knocking out the plug that's in the central pipe itself is step 1.
I'm fully debaffled now, but did my in stages. Just knocking out the plug/screen wasn't enough, so I went to the 4 holes you show in your album. About 2 weeks later, I went to 8 holes, then after about 6 weeks, I went ahead and jumped in to the full process. I couldn't be happier now!
I've even got a friend with some aftermarkets on his 900 custom, but I can't really say that a 400.00 set of pipes sounds any better.
Glad you're enjoying the sound! Hope there are MANY early warm days for you coming soon!
