If you remove the baffles, you will effectively be running open pipes. This will cause your bike to run lean. So yes, you will need to rejet.

SOURCE: bought bike had open pipes, old owner never had

In order for your motorcycle to run correctly you will have to put in larger main jets. Most jet kits also come with a set of needles that have a different taper from the stock needles. If you want the power band of your motorcycle to accelerate smoothly and get rid of the flat spot/hesitation when you apply throttle , you should spend the $100 and put in a jet kit.

SOURCE: hesitates and backfires

hi the air box and exhaust restrict the air movement through the cyclinders to match the jets in the carbs. i have bikes that you can remove baffles or airbox with no problem, others are so finely tunes that it is impossible to run the bike without the restriction. the easy option would be to get a jet and air filter kit. then if you need to restrict air flow any (hopefully you wont need to) you could very slightly raise the inlet/outlet valve gaps to the maximum amount which will open the valves for a slightly shorter time. you could also restrict the exhaust by using large washers on the exhaust gaskets. similar to those used to restrict a bike.

How to remove baffles


It is always best to rejet. Worst case it will run lean enough to burn valves

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.

I had V & H pipes on my 2000 FXDL low rider last year. The chrome tip was chipping. V & H sent me a new tip. Is it OK to remove the baffle and run the bike without it?


It will kill the low end tq..you can do it itll be louder .. the air cleaner will allow the same air in ..if you would put on a freeer flowing a/c then jetting changes would be needed...

Is it ok to remove the baffles from V&H long shot pipes on a 06 heritage?


Sure it is. I've worked on plenty of bikes that have had them removed. The biggest complaint is that they need to have the carb rejetted because of a "flat spot" in the throttle response at about 55-65 mph. The problem is not their carb jetting. It is the lack of backpressure on the exhaust system causing the scavenging effect of the pipe to **** the fresh fuel air mixture out of the cylinder at that particular speed. Now, I am usually able to restore almost all the performance but installing a bolt with three nuts on the inside of the pipe. It restores just enough to get "most" of the power back without effecting the sound. Personally, Long shots are simply too loud for me. But, it's your bike and your ears. If you take the baffles out and don't like them, you can put them back in. Go for it.

Good Luck

I want to remove baffle from EN 500


Typicaly on bikes without a baffle that is removable by unbolting it you will have to use a hole saw that just fits inside the outer pipe and also on that is just larger than the small inner pipe. Start with the small one and then the big one. Thie will be cutting a ring out of it and allow you to twist and wiggle the inner pipe loose of it's tack welds to the second baffle further in. Doing just the outer one will produce enough noise for you and you may have to rejet your bike!

Removing baffles in my1300 vtx c honda ?


it is not hard to do but it would be best to get the drag pipes. there are a host of problems to think of though. you will need to rejet the carbs to accomodate the free up in back pressure. you will need the tourque slipins for the pipes. they will fit right into the pipes where they connect at the heads. the 1300 is going to be super loud without the baffels. like getting stopped by the law loud. it would be best to get a tuned drag setup from a dealer as to get the sound you are looking for as well as keep it below jonnie laws radar.

Pipes cleaning


From what I can find online it seems to be performance pipes so I'd say boost. (Of course leaving the stock baffles in.) Stock VTX1300R is rated at 75 HP so you're probably looking at about 80-85 HP depending on how generously you rejet. If you've gotta pass emissions and don't wanna rejet before each time I'd say about 78-80 if you go full race to heck with fuel efficiency I want power you could probably pull 85 with the stock carb.

just make sure you rejet the carb all bikes come from the factory on the lean side to meet epa standards etc. if you dont rejet you'll actually lose some power and have nasty backfires as well take the time to put a jet kit in i personally recommend dynojet easy to install and comes with suggestions for your application
