If they came with baffles you should be able to tell just by looking at the end of the pipe. They do come with from V&H. When you remove them you can cut the tip of the front of the baffle to open them up a bit. Or cut them in half and only install the rear part and that gives you a perfect sound (at least for me). If you remove them completely they will sound horrible and way too loud.
just removed the baffles, i personally thought it sounded pretty awsome. i haven't taken it for a ride yet with them removed, forcast says rain till next week!!! anyways, classtom, you said you cut the baffles in half and only installed the rear portion, how did you hold them in place? i know you have to remove the one allen key at the end of the pipe to remove the whole thing. did you just shove it in there as far as it would go and it just stay?
oh and no need to remove the entire pipe, just the 4 clamps (2 for top pipe, 2 for bottom pipe) that hold the pipe covers on and wiggle em out.
thanks for all the help, i will probably end up cutting them in half and putting the rear part in.
you think there will be any mileage/power difference with the entire baffles removed?
Hi all. I have a stock 2006 VN900 Classic with a stock exhaust system, and just under 48000km on it.

The best way I can describe the performance is...
I had performed the obligatory 600 mile (966 km) oil change. Now, according to the internet, you would expect black sludge, metal shavings, nuts, bolts, and miscellaneous engine components to come out of there. I guess I was lucky because all that came out was clean engine oil. I changed the...
So I buy this brand new 2019 Kawasaki with 2 miles on the odometer. First problem I had was a "clunk" every time I hit a bump or apply hard braking on the front wheel. Eventually, I checked the fork clamp bolts and steering stem nut. I had to turn the steering stem nut almost 1/4 turn to tighten...
i have read everything there is to read on this forum about these two mods, but the answers are about six years old.
Has anyone been running The Progressive 465 rear shock (I thought 1 inch lower because my mustang seat made it a little
higher, and it would be easier to hop on) as well as the...
