There is total misconception about back pressure. The less back pressure you have on an engine the more efficient the extraction of the burnt gasses - however, if you shorten the pipe you could upset the tuning of the system which has been carefully factory calculated to clear gasses with the minimum of noise. Rather lay out some cash and buy a custom tuned exhaust for you machine.

Yes, cutting the tubes can affect performance. If you wanted to change, consider a tested exhaust system. Some of the is stuff is interrelated, and the only way to know for sure involves a dyno. A dyno is not a home tool, usually.

That being said, serious backpressure changes happen more when baffles are altered, the length of the pipe often does help the exhaust to be stable, thereby allowing new exhaust to exit the combustion chamber correctly...

The Valkyrie is notorious for burning the vacuum lines on the inside of the intake manifolds. They burn, get brittle, and break from back firing up the manifold caused typically by an aftermarket exhaust system. Stock bikes burn the tubes more slowly. Check all six tubes and replace this will probably solve the problem.

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.

Turn signal wont turn off by itself


There is NO auto signal cancel device on the Valkyrie. You must set up an auto system in your own head connected to your left thumb.

Honda Valkyrie runs rough


Your carburetors have varnished fuel in them and need cleaning. You most likely have clogged slow and fast jets. The fouled plugs pretty much say it all with this regard.

1998 valkyrie acts like it runs out of gas , open gas cap runs fine already cleaned out tank


There might be a breather hole in the tank's cap. See if it's blocked. If the tank is completely airtight, at a given time, the pressure inside the tank will be lower than the atmospheric pressure (due to the lowering of the volume of gasoline inside) and then, gasoline stops flowing into the carburettor.
