how much louder did it make it? Did it affect how it runs? Mine are pretty quiet until I get around 3K. My 2001 deluxe sounded better I thought...not intrusive at low speed but at highway speed people knew I was in their blind spot.
I put a pic in my gallery, can't figure out how to post on yet? Mine was also too quiet at idle but now it's just about right. If you want it louder drill more holes. I actually was considering changing pipes till I did this, figured what the hell if I still don't like it Ill change. My buddy put 8 holes in each onhis M109R a couple years ago, that's where I got the idea from.
It's really no different then changing a baffle out in a pipe, I heard that riding with no baffle would hurt (no back pressure) but don'tthink there's much truth to that,What about drag pipes...
You should have two screws in the end of the slip on mufflers. They are usually hex.
If they are there, then you have removable baffles. Most are removable, but just removing the screws won't get the out... You will need to use vice grips or a puller to get them out. They are in very tight and the more you have ridden, the harder they will be to remove, due to carbon build up.
I read this the other day, so today I drilled the 4 hole thing. It sounds fantastic. I would keep it that way, except I don't like the looks of the stock pipes. I want the radius curved one, I hope they sound this good.
