So many people have said that my storm sounds great, after my bafflectomy. I don't think my neighbors agree when I warm it up at 6 am to go to work. But thats there problem (yuppies). I just drilled as close to the outer as I could until the inner and outer came apart (it pays to put some tape or plastic tube around the outer end) Then I got a Dyna bolt that fitted inside the center pipe and with some VERY CAREFULLY aimed blows (use a cold chisel or long heavy screw driver) it came straight out,it is only held in by three spot welds inside. Then I cleaned the rough bits with a pencil grinder.

Probably easier if you don't remove them.

The bafflectomy was real easy. I just followed Greg's directions. Get the right size hole saw and about a 6" long heavy wall pipe nipple that fits over the inner tailpipe (makes it easier to beat the welds loose). Wrap the outside of the hole saw with some masking tape so you don't scratch your outer tailpipe. The whole job took me about 15 minutes. I will get the size of the hole saw for you tonight.

Yeah it's probably much easier if you leave the cans on the bike. Don't have them on now but in the past I had a pair I did, and I not only pulled out the first baffle but I put several holes into the next baffle. Was aftermarket pipe loud and honestly if you're just looking for the sound on a budget sounded just as good as any aftermarket pipe I've tried, and I've tried a bunch. Also funny they were the only pipes the bike didn't pop on decel with (?)

My bike pops like hell on decel. Jetting issue? Sometimes it has an erractic idle and every once in awhile like a dead spot in rpm range. The bike will hesitate for a split second and then be fine again.

The holes drilled in the ends didn't sound that bad, I just didn't like the way it sounded at idle. Sounded like it had a huge exhaust leak to it.
