Dont know the legal standings of an mot wrt baffles. I am just using a 48mm double depth holesaw to cut out the baffle. But unlike Edger mine will not have the fabricated end.

Some places will pass it whatever the can, others want to see the original if you have a loud can on. It's always better not to have a wide open end can or any passing cop may decide to pull you over

I tried to get a sound bite today (have you seen the state of the roads?)
However due to the p**s poor quality of the microphone all I got was wind noise, even wrapping the camera in foam made little difference
You will have to take my word that she sounds fine :mfrlol:

May be its off topic. :451: I about to change cans on my biffer for a new aftermarket ones.
If any one wish to experiment with cutting or modifying cans, I willing to give them away to anyone who wish to pick 'em up.
They have slip on rusted away under the tie clamp, rest of the pipe is fine.

BTW im in the SE23 area.

Removed 1st baffle today. I used a 44mm holesaw to cut outer baffle. Then used the tried method of crowbar down the baffle, moving it up and down, left and right to try and snap the 2 tack welds. After 45mins I had to resort to a more technical approach. A plastic hammer on the baffle outlet and smashing it with a large mallet. 10 more finger stinging minutes and hey presto, it broke the weld. Another 5 mins to wiggle the baffle out with stilsons.
I started the bike but to be honest in my garage I could not hear too much difference.
Now I have to retighten the exhaust at the centre box from the baffles being writhed side to side. Plus the otherside to do.

I have now finished both exhausts. The bike is running as per but with a much better sounding note, especially on over run, where it burbles away.
I took sound level readings before at 79db and after it was 85db. That in layman's terms is 50% louder.
Not bad for an outlay of £8 and a couple of hours work  :007:
All my mates can hear the difference so thats a bonus. :031:

You will find yourself running around town in a lower gear just to get the sound.
And dropping down the box into corners to hear the overrun burble :001:

As well as the can mod   last week I also did the air box flapper mod ,
A "Seat of the pants" feeling is the mid range is a bit stronger .
