Hello guys, I just got a set of High-Mount OEM Superlight exhaust. I want to decore them and already got rid of the rivets and end caps but can't get the actual baffle out! :mad: I have used a rubber mallet and tapped them all over around hoping that it would become loose but no success!! Can someone shed some light and tell me how to remove the baffles? I will certainly appreciate your help on this. ;)

Hiya

Did mine about a year back, they will have years of crap & carbon in there & wont fall out by any means! Had to beat mine out with some bits of wood and Big Hammers... :rolleyes:

Above was a random link I had on my desktop... I got the middles out and then cut through a section with my grinder & a 1mm stainless cutting disc.

There is a series of staggered baffles inside, you need to cut through the end one for best effect.





Wrapped it all back up with some heatproof foil duct-tape and re-assembled...



Can looks original from the outside? (Officer) :D

The ZDM A04/B04 cans have this baffle spotwelded in the end - a few minutes work with a dremel and you can pull the baffle clear - GOOD sound! ;)

Hi yets, I have the jet-kit since my previous Low-Mount cans were "decored" and bike ran excellent!! Remember one thing (which I'm not too sure) if it would make a BIG difference but I am in the Florida State, U.S.A. @(sea level), maybe depending on your location it COULD make a difference! Again, my bike has run perfect with the decored OEM exhaust and Jet-Kit.

Hiya!

Me too... :)

Bike had a stage1 Dynojet kit & filter fitted when I got it with the standard pipes (was a German import, original cans were TUV-pleasing HUGE great things!)

Now running Yosh carbon cans, plug colour is perfect! Should in theory fit a stage 2 for the cans but running fine at the mo? Good sound though with debaffled A04/B04 cans, still got them... Would recommend a stage 1 kit at LEAST.

470four, do you have any more pics of the removal of the baffles? Is it necessry to remove the rivets and the aluminum cover of the muffler or can it be done without further disassembly?

The photo in post#4? Just remove the spotweld blob at (I think...) the bottom of the baffle and they pull out! Can be done with the cans on the bike, remember to stuff some rags down them so they dont fill with filings tho. ;)

Thank you gentlemen.

Been trying to avoid going down the Dynojet route as a lot of tinkering is involved. I guess I will have to be the tinkerman! :)

Pics:



The spotweld blob can be seen inbetween the baffle & the can endtube, can be dremeled off, or carefully centrepunched and drilled off?

Grab the baffle with some pipegrips, add WD40 or similar and wiggle it out... you r bike will now sound LOUD. ;)

Here's the ZDM code on the side:
