Tri-oval Baffle removal
Has anyone tried to remove the baffle from the tri-ovals? I rode to Houston last week and the noise at 80 mph was not tolerable without earplugs. I would like to try to tone them down a bit with some stove rope or pipe wrap. When I looked at the end of the pipe I found four hex head bolts, but when removed, the baffle did not want to budge. I didn't break out the hammer yet but thought I would post the question here to see if anyone else had taken them out or tried to quiet them down, just a bit.
Most of my riding is below 70, and the tri-oval noise level is tolerable at that speed. But when I go on I-45 South to Houston, if I'm not going 80 I feel like I am going to get run over.
