Hello everyone. Quick question. If I was looking to get a bit more "throatiness" form the stock exhaust and took out the first plate to see how it sounded before going for the second plate, would I need to have my Ivan's ECU updated? I am currently running the stock version of the update and didn't know if I needed to send it off to him if I took out the first plate. Thank you for any assistance you can send my way!! Stay safe!!

Please disregard everyone. The always responsive "Ivan" has advised that no changes will be necessary to the ECU.

Hi BaileysDad, The guys I go riding with complain that they can't hear me. My 1700 is also Ivanized so this is good news. Can you let us know how you remove a baffle plate and then how much difference it makes. Thanks much. Dirk

I'm digging through much info on this site to do that. Looks like 1=1/4in bi-metal hole saw and an extension. Maybe a magnet if the restrictor doesn't come out with the hole saw. That's it. I'm only going to take out the first restrictor and see how it goes. I really don't mind the stock pipes, but some extra rumble/whatever never hurt anyone, plus, I like to mess around with stuff on the bike:)

I for sure agree with the last part. Seems to me riding is only half the fun. Today I took off the shift lever and removed the "heel" part. Big feet are not meant for heel&toe shifters. Do you go into the muffler on the intake or exhaust side? I'm guessing the intake.

I need to get rid of that heel shifter as well. The first two restrictors can be removed from the rear opening, with the exhaust attached. I only want to remove the first one, so we'll see how it goes!
