SOURCE: whether or not to remove the baffles on my kawasaki nomad

Generally removing the baffles will not effect the performance of a bike at all. If you have also modified the air intake then you will need to have the fuel injection remapped or the jetting in the carburetor changed, but 99% of the time this is not necessary when only removing baffles or changing mufflers. If they are the type of baffles that can be unbolted and put back then you have nothing at all to loose by taking them out and trying. I have been riding and modifying my own bikes since 1984.

Will it hurt the engine in anyway to just remove the baffles from my 2013 triumph thunderbird?

Although it won't damage the engine, it may well cause the engine to run poorly (loss of power, run rough etc.). You can change exhaust systems but sometimes you need to re-jet or re-tune the engine

Most baffles can be un-screwed from the rear; some others from the inside after removing the exhaust.

How to remove baffles

Step 1 - Remove Exhaust Remove the whole exhaust from the bike.
Step 2 - Drill Out the Baffle With a ½" hole saw and a handheld drill, insert them into a hole in the exhaust's outlet. The handheld drill will not go further inside the exhaust once you hit the baffle. Drill through the 1st baffle and then each remaining baffle until they are are drilled. Remove the baffle pieces.
Step 3 - Replace Exhaust Reinstall back the exhaust system onto your bike.

Why do my ejewei cfmoto scooter slows down after running about 30 min.

It may have broken or missing baffles, restrictors in the muffler/exhaust. This is much more critical for 2 stroke than 4 stroke engines but can affect both. Exhaust systems are tuned to have an engineered back pressure which helps a lot in the engine breathing, performance so you do not want the back pressure changed as will happen if baffles, restrictors etc are damaged or missing.

Xl883r can I take the baffles out of my vince hine slip on without damaging the engine. and will I need a heavy breather air filter.

Removing the baffles will lean out the mixture, so either rejetting the carb, or reprogramming the ECM or a "piggy-back" unit installed will be needed.

Actually, open "straight" pipes are the worse for performance, as some back pressure is needed.

Also, to help performance with a "free flowing" exhaust, a more "free flowing" air cleaner would be needed.

Remove baffles

Hi Anonymous, you are asking for trouble your Ignition Control Module doesn't like her exhaust system violated. I would suggest a set of Supertrapp slip on's and check with Supertrapp for additional module reconfiguration. Good luck

How to take baffles out of standard exhaust?

Inadvisable. The stock exhaust system and the engine jetting / calibration are balanced for the best"compromise" performance. Removing the baffles will change the exhaust pressures and upset things. It may sound more powerful because it will generate more noise but that's all. If you want a better sound AND better performance change the complete exhaust system and have the induction system matched to the new pipes.

I want to remove all the baffles in the exhaust system but i dont know where they are can any one help me?(this is for GT125R)

I would recommend against this for two reasons. First reason is that you will lose horse power, by losing back pressure.
If you do remove the baffles, then the carb must be retuned, because you damage the engine, by it running to lean or too rich.
There is ususally a screw that holds the baffle in under the rear exit of the exhaust pipe.
