SOURCE: Exhaust Pipes on 1995 Suzuki Intruder VS

Hi Lcyr. 
Any changes you make to the exhaust system will alter the sound the bike produces. The more you cut baffles,and open up the exhaust, the louder it will get.  What you do alter to a greater extent,is the state of tune of the motorcycle. Any changes to exhaust or inlet plumbing will require a retune of the engine to suit the modifications. This can be subtle to dramatic. Opening up exhausts can often rob low end power where exhaust port scavaging is relient on some back pressure for maximum effect.
 Best to work directly with an engine tuner to do the mods that are known you can get away with, or buy aftermarket prebuilt pipes that have a known previously tested state of tune. Nothing worse than doing something, that then costs money to put back the way it was on finding out it didnt work as well as was hoped.. Hope this has helped you steer your custom mods a little.  I can say with certainty, that I have ventured to do what you are doing many times in the past, and it has always cost me more money in tuning and... and well more parts :)  Cheers
regards robotek

try looking for the idle screw in the following place...
standing facing the side of the bike that has the clutch on it.
look in the area between the front cylinder and the rear cylinder, close to the tank.
the screw is black and can be difficult to see.
hope this helps.

How to remove baffle


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

How do i remove the double baffles per pipe on the Keeway/BigBoy Superlight 200?


You will need to cut it open and weld it back up its the only way to do it properly.

04 vt1100 cuts out at 3/4 to full throttle has open pipes and a jet kit


fuel or air starvation ! free flow filter and a bigger bore fuel tap and pipe to feed faster will help ! open pipes done give any back pressure , you could use really short baffles in the pipes as i had this problem on a gs550 suzuki with 4 drag pipes on it !

My suzuki gsxr 1000 k3 will start then cut out six times before it runs properly on its own in the cold


Instructions
  1. Take Down
    • 1 Park the motorcycle on the kickstand or center stand and allow the exhaust pipes to cool completely.
    • 2 Refer to your Suzuki service manual and organize the metric tools needed to remove the baffle. On newer models, it may be necessary to remove the tailpipe section to modify the baffle. On older models, you may be directed to remove a bolt that secures the baffle in the tailpipe.
    • Follow the procedure given in the manual and remove the tailpipe section or slide-in baffle using the appropriate tools. Save any brackets or bolts. Place the tailpipe or baffle on a workbench.
    Tailpipe Baffles
    • 4 Hold one end the tailpipe up to a light and look inside the other end. Depending on the baffle, you may see very little light or none at all. Modifying the baffle is a matter of opening up areas in the baffle.
    • 5 Chuck a 1/4-inch drill bit in an electric drill. Use a bit extension if necessary to reach deep into the tailpipe with the drill bit.
    • 6 Place the tailpipe on a workbench. Use a towel or rags to prevent scratching the finish. Insert the tip of the drill bit into the tailpipe and drill a 1/4-inch hole in the baffle.
    • 7 Hold the tailpipe up to the light again. Determine the number of additional holes you want based on the purpose of the modification. Drill additional holes in the baffle if needed.
    • 8 Stand the tailpipe on end and tap it on the workbench to clear the debris from drilling out of the baffle. Make sure all debris is cleared out before reinstalling the tailpipe on the motorcycle.
    Slide-In Baffles
    • 9 Secure the outer end of the baffle in a bench vise with the baffle extending to one side. The outer end has the threaded hole where the bolt was removed to take the baffle out of the exhaust pipe.
    • 10 Measure the length of the baffle and divide it by four. You modify a slide-in baffle by cutting off a one-quarter section at a time using a hacksaw. Mark the baffle at the one-quarter point and cut the first section off the end.
    • 11 Reinstall the baffle in the exhaust pipe using the saved bolt and the metric tool.
      Start the motorcycle and determine if the modification produced the desired result.
    • 12 Allow the exhaust pipe to cool completely before removing the baffle for further modification. Most likely, cutting one or two quarter sections will give you the result you want. Avoid cutting too much off the baffle, or it will be useless.

I have a 2006 road king classic and got samson 2 inch drag pipes slip ons with no baffles will it hurt the motor to run them with out the baffles


No it won't hurt anything as long as your pipes are long enough. If they're way too short, you'll burn your exhaust valves up. As long as the pipes reach at least the front of the rear wheel, you should be fine running it straight piped. It'll make her sound good too. You'll be pleased with the sound change

I want more sound from my pipes (australian specs).. how do i knock the restrictions out of the mufflers?


If you remove the baffles from your exhaust pipes the ignition timing and tuning will need attention or it will run rough.
I find it best to buy Screaming Eagle pipes or Slash Cut pipes, they have the correct resistance for backpressure but are very loud!!!!
If you wish to remove the baffles, the procedure will depend on the design of the pipes. There is usually a "pop" rivet somewhere underneath them that if you drill it out the baffles will pull out.
In the UK they fail their roadworthyness test if they have no baffles.
Loud pipes save lives, ride safe!

I have a 2008 Harley Crossbones with Rinehart Crossover exhaust. It just isn't loud enough for me. I am used to no baffles in my carb bikes. How do I get more sound. Cut baffles?


Check after market pipe makers like Fubar or Kirker.Don't mess with baffles it aint worth the hassle of re-setting the computer.New duel pipes with straight pipe design will come with the new mixture settings.

Pulsar 150 - Some knocking after i got a service 3 days back...


It could be the exhaust baffles which are in the exhaust pipe tht have given away, you can remove the exhaust pipe assy and get it cut underneath and get the baffles electric welded..or rather spot welded and weld the exhaust back but the chrome will burn off and rust may thn take over ..or unless you paint tht area black( heat ressistant paint.),or better off is to replace the complete exhaust pipe assy.
Hope this helps!
