I decided to try out the baffle in my Yoshimura the other day to see how it affected highway drone. First of all, ditto to what everyone else has said about it being a PITA to install. It's almost as if it's not actually made for this muffler.



Anyway, I got it in after lots of tapping, sweating, and swearing, and it did quiet down the drone quite a bit. I'm actually starting to think it's a little too quiet now.


Also, it may just be my imagination, but it seems like there's a change in throttle response after installing the baffle. I've stalled the bike 3-4 times, and it seems like it needs more throttle on takeoff now.


Has anyone else noticed this? Does this seem likely, or am I just imaging things?

Yes - I noticed that both my throttle response and engine braking seemed to have changed a bit after I did the exhaust change as well.

This is on my stock tune as I haven't done Tremonte's Rapid Bike setup yet.
