I was thinking about removing the exhaust screen (phase 1?) in my stock pipes and was wondering what possible function it could serve in the first place. I would think it could only improve the sound. Keeps the mice out of your cylinders?????? Just curous........:cool:

I did just that used a ten inch arbor and 1 and 7/8th in hole saw. Sounds much better and you can tell it is a v-twin now, but not loud enough to disturb the neighbors.

I knocked mine out and it sounds better, but I also installed an Arlen Ness Big Sucker intake at the same time (which was the best investment I've made so far where sound and performance is concerned).

I think (not sure) that the screens, apart from dampening sound, force most of the exhaust up in to the baffles? Or they could just be there to keep rats out of the cylinder like cgcwo says:)
