My ride is a 2013 Nomad. I did not take the pipes off. On the Nomad, the first plate is 9.5 inches into the pipe and is about 1/16th inch thick. You need a 1 1/4 inch bi-metal hole saw. The second plate, if you want to take it out (I did not), is 16.5 inches from the end of the pipe. The whole process took me about 5 minutes. One plate came out with the hole saw. I had to use a long magnet to pull the other one out. The result is a nice deep rumble, but not a lot louder.Joe called me back and was extremely helpful. Thanks for the feedback. The only problem I have with power is when I ride two up, so I told my girlfriend to stay home. She didn't like that idea, so I am getting a big air kit for my Birthday present at the end of the month! Just kidding about my girlfriend staying home, I love my sweetie! I have a question, I want to keep the stock pipes, so I plan to drill out the baffles to increase air flow. Do I need a special drill bit or an extension to reach through the pipes? How large of a drill bit do I use? How many baffles in each pipe? Do I need to take off the pipes to do this project?
I am not Vulcan Hammer, but... There is no "baffle" to remove, only the little thin plate, which is about 1/16th inch thick.My Chucksters Big Air Kit arrived today. I am going to read through the instructions tonight and may do the install as well. Fast shipping, I ordered the kit on Monday. Thanks Joe! I am still on the fence about the debaffle exhaust mod, stage 1,2 or 3? There is so much information on the web my head is spinning. So I will keep you posted on both mods. I am sure there will be more questions.
I have a question Vulcan Hammer, after I drill out the first plate, do I remove the first baffle as well or keep it in there??
Thank you all, I appreciate the feedback!
Exactly.I am not Vulcan Hammer, but... There is no "baffle" to remove, only the little thin plate, which is about 1/16th inch thick.
